  1. I got a message from my firewall (Online Armor) this morning saying that SSupdate.exe wanted access to the internet. I had just formatted my hard drive and reinstalled all my programs, so I immediately assumed it was SuperAntiSpyware. But then I noticed that the path to the file was: C:\Documents and Settings\My Name\Local Settings\Temp\SSupdate.exe I did a search of my system and found the file in this location and also in C:\Program Files\SuperAntiSpyware\SSupdate.exe. Both files are 156kb. Can anyone tell me whether the Temp folder is a legitimate location for this file (if it is the legitimate SAS file). I did a google search and have found that various spyware files are also called SSupdate.exe and I wonder if somehow I have got one of these on my system. I would be surprised, since I only reformatted my hard drive and did a clean install of Windows XP 2 days ago. I run Windows XP Pro SP3. SAS Pro, Spybot S&D, Avast! free, Online Armor free, Spyware Blaster.
  2. I recently had a major spyware scare, and started experimenting with running more than one real-time anti-spyware program at a time. I have heard many differing opinions as to whether this is a good idea. The following issue possibly suggests that it is not a good idea! However, I would appreciate your opinions on this, as well as specific help on the following issue. I have just had a conflict between Spybot's resident "Teatimer" and Superantispyware. When Superantispyware was updating, I got a message from Spybot asking whether or not to allow a major registry change. Unfortunately the Spybot dialog box was incorrectly displayed, and there were no buttons visible so I could not allow the change. I have since discovered that this is a known issue, and that I can allow or disallow changes from the keyboard. According to the Spybot log, the following change was disallowed: 5/11/2006 08:54:08 Denied value "!SASWinLogon" (new data: "") added in Winlogon Notifiers! Could someone please let me know if this is going to interfere with SAS operating properly? If so, what can I do to rectify it?
