  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In the description of 1st chance prevention you should include a phrase something like this: "First chance prevention is obsolete in windows vista and hence does not function".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?
  7. A long time ago I posted that scans were taking a very long time. In excell of 90 minutes. Surprisingly, nothing was ever resolved through this forum (that is usually not the case). I looked at my most recent logs and full scans are taking 25-30 minutes instead of 90. But less files are being scanned. The log from 5-19-2008 1 hr 31 minutes 449 memory items 5221 registry items 106972 files On 5-20-08...30 minutes 456 memory items 5221 registry items 19419 files I didn't erase 90,000 files from my PC. Was SAS getting stuck on certain files?
  8. No, I have always done a Complete system scan. So everything else seems to be the same. Question: how would we know if SAS was getting hung up on a particular file or if it was taking abnormally long to scan?
  9. Pretty much all the same software: Antivir, Sandboxie, Zone Alarm, and SAS. All products I believe have receive updates in the last month. Still 1.5-2 hour scans on a relatively fast system seems abnormal. I can't seem to figure out what has changed.
  10. SAS has been lightning fast on my vista sytem. Full system scans have been taking less that 20 minutes (though last nights took 40 minutes for some reason). However, for more than the last month full system scans on my XP system have been taking well over an hour. The last few days scans have taken 2+ hours. Any idea what the problem could the problem be?
  11. I don't always checkl my wifes machine. But when I do, the only thi ng she has in quarantine are a bunch of cookies. It wou,ld be nice to be able to highlight as many of the items in quarantine as you want (say, using the control or shift keys) and delete them all with one keystroke. I just went though today and deleted about 30 entries one at a time. Thye were all cookies.
  12. Many people make good suggestuions that you add to the wish list. It would be nice to see all of the upcoming features or wish list features published in one spot. As they are added to the program you could put a check by them and the date of addition. This would be neat to follow the progress of the program.
  13. I was looking at old scan logs the other day. It would be nice if you could have the program save the last 50 logs or if you could set an amount of memory for the logs to use up, then delete the rest.
  14. My XP machine is running fine with SAS Pro. My Vista machine will not allow me to enable first chance prevention. Not sure if this was happening before the most recent update or not. Please advise.
  15. I have now done the following: 1. Run a full system scan with SAS pro...came back clean 2. Submitted files for analysis via "find out what's running on my pc" Will await further advise. Thank you!
