  1. You've got issues with the registry if you're receiving that error message. I'd recommend testing for hardware stability by running memtest86+ for 12-24 hours, and if it passes run StressPrime for another 12 hours. You can use Erunt for doing regular backups of the registry: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download1267.html
  2. A few other 9x kernel users have reported a "sluggish" pc with 4.25.xxxx, so you may want to uninstall the current version and revert back to 4.24.xxxx. Read more: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2500&start=15 WinME was always a crap shoot for stability. If your pc will handle a newer OS I'd recommend that you consider Windows 2000 or Windows XP if you have at least 300MHz and 256MB ram. You can pick up an inexpensive copies from eBay.
  3. Just started today on one of my pc's w/ XP Pro SP3. I tried to transfer the license and activate using the same code to no avail. Obviously I'll contact customer service to resolve the issue with the key (Yes, it is a Lifetime key), but I thought that I'd post in the forum as a "heads up" to anyone else that encounters the same problem.
  4. Find the file(s) and upload to virustotal.com and/or virscan.org for further analysis.
  5. No, it doesn't hide your computer it simply downloads all of the "internet files" to a protected directory or sandbox. It's not 100% since you can choose to let files out of the sandbox. Sandboxie is very popular and they offer a free solution that I'd highly recommend. http://www.sandboxie.com/
  6. SAS w/ real time protection (less FCP) has been compatible w/ x64 in 32-bit mode for quite some time, so I am not sure what you mean by "cannot use it". My $.02..... Personally I'd rather have the SAS team focus on current threats and improving the detection/removal capabilities instead of allocating those resources to developing true 64-bit drivers. The fact of the matter is that 32-bit OS'es are more common.
  7. SAS doesn't concentrate on detecting keyloggers. If you search Google you will find plenty of ways to remove it.
  8. Very basic directions to get you started 1) Update SAS 2) Download, install, and run CCleaner 3) Download CureIt to your desktop 4) Boot to safe mode to run a CureIT scan first followed by a SAS afterwards If you still have problems try the Avira Rescue CD
  9. MBAM works. You can also set up SRP's and tinker with the improved UAC.
  10. http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Window ... 41033.mspx To put it politely Stopzilla is notorious for FP's and poor detection.
  11. I disagree. Running two real-time AV's is frowned upon, but having a real-time AV+AS is more than acceptable. SAS does not conflict with any real-time (resident) AV w/ built in AS detection. In fact you'll find numerous folks who have SAS Pro w/ real-time and FCP enabled alongside NOD32, ESS, Avira Premium, Norton, Kaspersky, Dr.Web, etc.
  12. Are you seeing this only on pc's with XP SP3 & AVG installed?
  13. Popups, pc running slow, BSOD's, fake alerts, anti-malware tools unable to install/run, etc......
  14. What is KAV? How did you use KAV and SAS together? Thanks!! http://www.kaspersky.com/ SAS coexists with KAV and other antivirus software.

  16. I wanted to take a moment to thank Nick and the SAS team for implementing the suggestion in the OP even though they were initially against the idea.
  17. Anyone who spends over 15 min. in any office app should back up in the event of an unexpected shutdown or reboot. To wait 3 hours and then blame SAS sounds more like the PEBKAC. In my lengthy experience with SAS it always asks before rebooting unless you have the Pro version and enable the scheduled scan to reboot (if required) or shutdown after the scan.
  18. Not quite yet. If you had system restore enabled you can revert to a previous restore point. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 You can skip a lot of the steps if you have the drive slaved, or if you use UBCD, ERD Commander, etc. Basically you need to do the following: 1) gain access the System Volume Information folder 2) pick a recent restore folder - copy the 5 registry files to a tmp dir, rename them, now right-click > copy 3) navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Config - paste and overwrite or delete the old versions then paste 4) Reboot
  19. FWIW "Scan system services" is unchecked by default. AFAIK SAS doesn't conflict with any AV software. 1) Scan on startup scans for malware while Windows is starting. 2) Scan on shutdown scans for malware running in the background while Windows is shutting down. 3) Scan system services scans all system services for malware. How important is it? That depends on how taxing it is on the system and whether or not the time saved is worth risking an infection. Only you and your client can answer that.
  20. Yes, especially since nothing is 100% on any given day. As previously stated Spybot is long in the tooth, but it does have an immunization feature, and it's another free on-demand scanner. While SAS is a remarkable product I've come across malware that it is unable to detect/remove. The same can be said for any anti-malware product out there.
  21. You can acquire SAS Pro w/ Lifetime updates for $19.95 if you have the free version installed and do one of the following: 1) Update it and you should receive a definition popup window with a link to upgrade 2) Uninstall it and a webpage with the coupon will appear btw this is a promotion they offer from time to time. YOu might not necessarily see it each time you click on the link to upgrade. robin FWIW I see the promo every time I manually update or uninstall a free version on any computer that I happen to be servicing.
