  1. It sounds like you are using the Windows 10 Fall Creators Edition update which was released very recently. This update has changed how Internet Explorer and Edge stores its cookies. Cookies are no longer stored as individual files for those browsers, and thus SUPERAntiSpyware does not pick them up and remove them as they once did. What is left behind though is what is called a deprecated.cookie, which will continue to be found and removed by SUPERAntiSpyware.

    This question was previously answered here


  2. Watch out for fake PayPal “unable to complete your recent transactions” phishing emails!

    We here at SUPERAntiSpyware have noticed a fairly recent clever email phishing campaign that claims to be PayPal. In the email the fake PayPal scam artists attempt to scare users into thinking that not only have their recent PayPal payments been declined, there is also unusual selling activities and they “will need some more information” about your recent sales in attempt to steal your information.

    Example of the phishing email

    We here at SUPERAntiSpyware recommend you simply delete this email, and do not click any links within the email, especially the fake blue “Check Your Accounts” button. If you have been scammed by this email, immediately change your PayPal account password and consider looking into changing your spam settings to avoid future spam emails such as these. Remember, if you do not recognize the sender address, do not open the email, and if you do open an email such as this always hover your mouse pointer over the emails links to see where they’re trying to take you, usually phishing emails links will point you to a website that has nothing to do with the company they’re posing as.


  3. Thank you for the scan log. It appears you are using the Windows 10 Fall Creators Edition update which was released very recently.

  4. Hey GS,

    System Investigator users who have left down-voted comments haven't submitted very helpful stuff or it's been abusive (profanity in all languages possible) or sometimes flat out weird so it's been difficult for us to consistently manage that. We had to filter much of it out at the beginning to eventually we haven't published down-voted comments except in rare circumstances.We did keep the voting system of course as you can see it is active and live.


  5. Hello Casperfox,

    System Investigator shows you files of interest on your system located in key areas (most common infection points).  Running programs, installed programs, browser plugins, programs with shortcuts on your desktop, start menu, etc; programs in the registry, temp folders, internet cache folders, document folders, etc.  If it's running or configured to run (automatically), it should be in that list. Everything found on your system will be checked against our whitelist database of millions of files and trusted software publishers to determine what's good and it gets moved to it's own category so you can safely ignore those. Items that aren't in our whitelist ("Unknown Items") are able to be voted on by our users.  Voting will move the item into a different list to narrow down your real list of "Unknowns", and helps our malware researchers add items to our whitelist or identify potential threats or unwanted programs.  Everyone sees vote counters for unknown items to help identify good/bad files.  You can leave a comment/note when you vote and you can view the comments from other users on the file details.SAS Pro Feature:  See changes to the files in these key areas within a selected time period.  If something has messed with a program, or added itself, you'll see right away!

    For your question, you can see other users comments by clicking the Magnifying glass(Explore information about this item) and scrolling down to the bottom. If a comment exists, it will be under "User Votes and Comments"
     


  6. Hello Flamencoguy,

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    1) Users experiencing a slow removing process depends on a few factors, such as the availability of CPU/RAM, if you have other programs and hogging resources, and especially if your removing cookies and a browser is open.

    2) This would remove the choice for users to unselect items that were detected but do not want removed. Having a removal process occur while scanning would also slow the whole process down quite a bit.

    3) A "bypass" would cause browser instability and cause a crash. SUPERAntiSpyware has an option to close web browsers before a scan. This is located under Scan This Computer -> Recommend Pre-Scan actions section.

    4) If you own the Professional Edition, you can set a Scheduled Scan to shutdown the PC after a set scheduled scan.

     


  7. If you need assistance with Opera crashing or questions regarding Opera Web Browser I would contact Opera. The malware that detected by Real-Time Protection and quarantined has probably nothing to do with Operas software since it was found in C:\users\DMP\appdata\local\temp\temp\ which is a temp folder, not an Opera specific folder.

    If you open Opera, does the issue become detected again by SUPERAntiSpywares real-time protection?


  8. Hello Diane,

    Thank you for contacting us, what software alerted you to this "heuristic.backdoor.process"? If it was SUPERAntiSpyware, please post the scan log you mentioned that showed the infection.

    You can find your scan logs in this directory:
    C:\Users\”USERNAME”\AppData\Roaming\SUPERAntiSpyware.com\SUPERAntiSpyware\Logs

    You'll need to replace "USERNAME" with your Windows user name.


  9. With such a large number I suspect that the detections you are seeing marked for removal are just cookies.  Cookies are not blocked by SUPERAntiSpyware because they are required for most web functionality.  Cookies will come back every time you surf the web, and can be cleaned by running a Quick or Complete Scan.  If you'd like to learn more about cookies, check out this link:

    Just click reboot later.
