  1. Only one link works in the sas tray icon, that one is "check for updates" Rig:Xp pro Firewall:Online armor(free) hips deactivated Avast 4.8 (free) These links have always worked in the past. First thought was a firewall problem/, nothing in their log shows a blockage of sas entries Removed SAS twice and reinstalled. Downloads were always from Superantispyware.com

    only one sas tray icon link works

    Thanks Seth for suggestions, but alas couldn't get the links to stay open. Well to say that they come up for a fraction of milliseconds/microseconds and then disapear complenty. Forgot to inform you of that in my first post. I also thnk the firefall may be the cause. will do some further checking and let you know what if anything I found.

    Malwarebytes does a pretty good job of removing hard to remove files.

    Flash Cookies

    I too found lots of flash cookies left after using Ccleaner. I like the free utility "Flash Cookie Cleaner 1.0" for viewing and deleting flash cookies. It can be downloaded from http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/10969256

    Flash Cookies

    Does SAS have the ability to delete flash cookies. If not, would SAS perhaps have this ability perhaps down the road. Some info on flash cookies is at http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2009/08/ ... ink-again/

    Flash Cookies

    Thanks praire dog. I'm going to check out this addon for FF, which I do use.
  10. Say when one does an SAS update today and then does a system restore later in the day. Are the updates for today lost forever?

    shutting down computer

    For those running XP, I was wandering if UPHClean could clear up this. I've only had this happen once/twice in a long period of time. Have UPHClean installed, don't think it has happened since installation of UPHClean.

    Sorry Superantspyware, I have already deleted it. I am checking HijackThis daily. If it or some unusual entry shows up, I will duly look at the full registry path.

    Found xiazai.cpushpop.com in highjack this (R1) registry entry. I believe this is adware according to research I have done. Scan on demand with SAS often. SAS has never hit on this registry entry. Mvps hosts file has entries listing sites related to it. As far as I can see, I have no problems with machine here.

    Windows XP problem still

    If all else fails, do a system recovery. That will be listed under system tools.
  15. Since I use SAS, I hope this is ok to ask, if the above entry could maybe a form of spyware. IT shows up in Hijackthis as RO, a changed registry entry
  16. I noticed in Task Manager, CPU was running at 100%, with a entry of "helpsearch.exe". The entry dissapeared right before my eyes, and CPU went back to normal. Googled it, and found some info over at TrendMicro. Did a SAS scan in safe mode. Nothing found. Did boot scan with Avast, did online scans with Nod32, TrendMicro and Symantec, nothing found. The registry entry of BKDR_HUPIGON.Fi was found in registry by me. Question: Is this spyware/Virus? It appears this is going to be difficult to remove. Am using SAS Home. XP Pro.

    Alternate Data Streams + SAS

    Thanks to both of you for this info.
  18. ADS Spy V1.11 by Merijn (HiJackThis) states recent browser hijackers started using ADS to hide thier files. And very few Anti-Malware Scanners detect this. Does SAS scan ADS?
  19. went to site listed above the other day briefly.(electronics site). did a quick scan today. had a couple tracking cookies listed from this site. not third party cookies as i block them. no problem, deleted them. i wonder did sas break down the url to something like this, "www.part.sex.press.com. at any rate sas, your're on the job.

    vista+superantispyware updates

    thanks sunniebear for info. i'll see if that takes care of problem.
  21. i downloaded superantispyware free version to a friend's computer, which has vista on it. download went fine and installed it's self on the computer. did out a quick scan, found a few third party cookies. then checked for updates, downloaded updates; vista ask me for permission to continue?, i clicked yes. i never did see the results for updates, like i do on my pc, which uses xp. could this be a vista glitch? i believe the updates were installed. is there any file hidden/otherwise, i can check to verify? pc has only avast and windows defender on it.
