  1. Hi All, Nick is "Old School" and I think he really appreciates that nomenclature. The GUI; will undoubtedly stay the same. This has been brought up on an occasion or two. IIRC We can only hope that Nick has some sort of epiphany. Bottom line is that any changes to SAS's interface will not enhance its' effectiveness. Above All - Have a good day.
  2. Hi Marco from the Netherlands, SAS does do what it says does; doesn't it?
  3. darth, Yes, the SAS Updates are gone forever after doing a system restore; as they should be. Do you notice otherwise? Just update SAS again as well as all other programs after a system restore.
  4. While looking for something entirely different I came across this and thought I'd share it with all of you here at the SAS forum. http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-fr ... emover.htm
  5. Not sure if I agree but I enjoy using them.
  6. Hi All, While the supplied links are nice, the most important opinion is mine and of course yours ; just my 2 bits as an ordinary user. SAS especially shines when I use it on a friends messed up computers. Oh yeah, when I say 2 bits I mean and I don't think "messed up computers" needs any link.
  7. Then darkzombie, I guess it is safe to say that you are not new any longer.
  8. Hi NorthShoreSurfer, I have C:\$ISR in my excluded folder. I think you need to Show hidden files and folders in MyComputer>Tools>FolderOptions>View>AdvancedSettings>Hidden files and folders.
  9. ant, now that sure sounds familiar. https://forums.superantispyware.com/view ... highlight=
  10. Hi AdvancedSetup, Yes, you're right. I forgot to mention I do daily image backups using Acronis TrueImage 11 as well as incremental daily backups with Vista Ultimate's built-in facility. Thanks again for the heads-up! Regards, Jim Jim, While it is prudent that you back up regularly, unless you restore periodically, you can not be certain that any image will restore as expected. Just don't forget this fact. Just a friendly reminder.

    VashTheMan, How is the SAS fit with your setup?
  12. Threedog, Yes you are protected by SAS Real-Time when using Firefox or any other browser. There is good explanation in the Help under Preferences and Options> Real-Time Protection.
  13. mata7, I have SNDREC32.EXE but SAS is not detecting it using the latest definitions at these locations: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE\SNDREC32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SNDREC32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\XPize\Resources\sndrec32.exe In the SAS scan results window, on the right, there is a button to submit false positives. That may be the quickest solution but if it were me I would submit the files in question to Virustotal first, just because... One thing you may want to do is exclude this C:\$ISR from your scans after this is sorted. I have excluded it just to speed up scans and like I said before I don't know if SAS will remove items from other snapshots. If someone has 10 snapshots, SAS is really scanning 10 complete system partitions. Even if SAS has the ability to fix problems in other snapshots, personally, I would not let it. I don't let any program delete or change anything in C:\$ISR. The downside of excluding C:\$ISR is that you would not have found any of the possible false positives that you did find. So, it is best not to exclude it! Can anyone shed some light on whether or not SAS can fix all detected items no matter where they are located? Particularly in FD-ISR snapshots or windows SystemRestore. thanks edit: In the help file it says SAS can delete from SystemRestore. There is an option to scan it or not.
  14. Thanks nosirrah, Thanks for the info on IceSword. Yes it does allow you to copy files from not-in-use-snapshots of FD-ISR. I just tried it. It is a very powerful tool to say the least. "IceSword has a Windows Explorer-like interface but displays hidden processes and resources that Windows Explorer would never show. It isn't a "click-here-to-delete-rootkits" product but a sophisticated..."
