  1. This isn't a suggestion to change 1st chance prevention, just the GUI. Under the tab "Real Time Protection" you see options for: 1. Real Time Protection 2. Real Time Notification 3. 1st chance prevention In the description of 1st chance prevention you should include a phrase something like this: "First chance prevention is obsolete in windows vista and hence does not function". Just some kind of phrase letting the end user onow that the reason they can't enable this feature in Windows Vista is because it is not needed in Windows Vista.
  2. Time to officially complain. I still think you make a good product, but it appears you are dragging your feet on full Vista compatibility. Is there possibly a programming issue? First chance prevention really should be Vista compatible by now. I mean, people are already talking about the replacement for Vista. Vista is on the way out. It just seems like you guys dropped the ball on this one. Not trying to be negative, just expressing a legit issue.
  3. In addition to SAS, I sometimes scan with another well respected antispyware application. It detected the following infected registry key that SAS did not. Just wanted to update the folks here in case your definitions are missing this one. Of course, all programs from time to time detect malware that others miss. So this is not a criticism of SAS. In fact, the other program could be picking up a false positive. I just wanted to make the programmer here aware of a potential missed malware. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{df780f87-ff2b-4df8-92d0-73db16a1543a} (Adware.PopCap) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
  4. Unfortunately, the answer above with references to NVIDIA is too complicated for me to understand. I don't know what NVIDIA is or how that relates to first chance prevention not working on Windows Vista. Would it be possible for a site administrator or and SAS staff member to answer the following question: When will "first chance prevention" work on vista machines? All that is needed is a date. Or even a rough date/time frame. Thanks in advance!
  5. We have not posted anything about version 5, so I would be curious as to where you would have read that? Now that I see you have read the thread,do you an answer for the original question? How about just a "ballpark" date?
  6. SAS-Pro is working fine with Vista, but is not fully functional. Do you have any idea when we can expect the "first chance prevention" feature to be compatible with vista?
