  1. It's surely a false positive from asquared, and should be fixed soon. See the discussion on the asquared forum here: http://forum.emsisoft.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=5670
  2. All seems OK here too, although once more I found that old event 7000 SASDIVSV error in Event Viewer after the install, which has been reported here many times before: "The SASDIFSV service failed to start due to the following error: Cannot create a file when that file already exists." It goes away after a computer restart, but I've never seen an explantion of what it's all about.
  3. It's worth getting used to, truly. That 'bug' in the system tray is one of the most reassuring sights on my computer screen. I've felt like that about it ever since my daughter picked up some bad stuff on her computer sometime last year. Her other security products had failed to detect anything at all, but SuperAntispyware found and deleted the lot, and there was an end to the matter. You only need to see that sort of thing happen once, for that little bug in the system tray to seem like a very, very good friend.
  4. a-squared free also has a process running in the background, despite being only an on-demand scanner. I have both a-squared and SAS installed on my computer, and I've never noticed even the slightest impact on performance as a result of those background processes. I remember Nick explaining some time ago on this forum that if SAS is running from startup, it will defend itself if malware tries to turn it off. If it's prevented from running at startup, it can't do that. That extra bit of security seems worth having, to me.
  5. The update seemed to go smoothly (free edition, XP), and it seems to scan nicely, and the most notable feature is that this is the first time I haven't found a SASDIFSV service error in Event Viewer after the update. This is so unusual that I'm almost inclined to worry about it!
  6. I'm struggling a bit to get used to it, myself. Something seems quite hard on the eyes - the bits of red against the blue are very harsh - maybe it's partly that. It's as if something is scattering the eye around the screen so that it's harder to find what I'm looking for.
