  1. I never said you were trying to prove anything. And no thanks.... I was debugging code long long time ago. Don't care if it is embedded in txt; it is not executable.
  2. DELETE your cookies & be done with it ! Why rely on any scanner to detect cookies ?
  3. That is the standard eicar test file, meant to be a .bat .exe .com type file for Anti Virus testing. Some Anti Malware products do not consider .txt files as threats therefore won't pick it up as such. All your link proved to me is that there are a lot of uninformed people that do not understand how their security APPS work.
  4. They are also clearly labeled as Threats on the GUI "Threats Found"
  5. Are you saying there is executable code in aa text file ? Got an example, from experience ?
  6. Tracking cookies are "TXT" files. How can these be considered a Threat ? Seems like SAS is trying to "UP" their detection rate !
  7. Thank you for your response, but it doesn't make sense. The older of the two machines, it doesn't happen on; ie, less ram and slower cpu: 768mb RAM, 1.7 gHz. It happens on the newer, 1 Gig RAM, 2.4 gHz. As far as processes running, they are almost identical, as I have installed the same protection APPS, etc. Also tried as you suggested, exit SAS first. May not have waited long enough before shutdown, but same problem, not responding popup. Also, I understand a lag in opening due to loading definitions files etc, MBAM takes a little while also, but shutdown ? Time to uninstall and look for a replacement.
  8. I have 2 stand alone DELL computers with SAS 5.0.0 installed. DELL Dimension 4400 XP/SP3 Home Edition. Shutdown proceeds normally. DELL Optiplex GX270 XP/PRO SP3. Shutdown is interrupted with SAS not responding, and have to manually end the task for shutdown to complete. Event Log shows nothing relating to SAS during shutdown. Any suggestions for Cause / Solution ?
