  1. I just found SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log - 11-05-2017 - 08-16-29.log in the C:\Users\jgt\AppData\Roaming\SUPERAntiSpyware.com\SUPERAntiSpyware\Logs folder, it is too large to attach. My system is now responding rather weirdly, normally I would reboot but I really fear that if I do then the removal by SAS will be irreversible. I now see the SAS Quarantine file via SAS. When I expand the folder in SAS I see two sub folders Adware.Tracking Cookie, this contains 17 entries for cookies Trojan.Agent/Generic, this contains 2 entries and identify folders in my backup. I will delete the root folders identified At this point I'm totally confused and know not what to do other than more research. .
  2. Sorry but now I do now see the window as I did when I captured the image. I now see the default window. In the link you put in your post I see "The Restore... button allows you to restore quarantined items back onto the disk and/or registry location(s) where they were originally detected. Restore... can be used to un-quarantine items that have been incorrectly detected by SUPERAntiSpyware as malware. Note that most users will never need to use the Restore... functionality. If a legitimate malware threat is un-quarantined, you could be putting your system at risk. " However in the image I posted I do not see a Restore button nor do I see a Restore button in the SAS window when I now open SAS. I just scanned my system (using the search tool Everything) for SuperAntiSpyware and found four folders related to SAS C:\Program Files\SUPERAntiSpyware This is the install folder and did not contain the quarantined items C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\SUPERAntiSpyware, this is the start menu and of course did not contain any quarantined items C:\ProgramData\SUPERAntiSpyware.com\SUPERAntiSpyware In the AppLogs (C:\ProgramData\SUPERAntiSpyware.com\SUPERAntiSpyware\AppLogs) I see several files with the extension of SDB. Possibly this might be helpful. C:\Users\jgt\AppData\Roaming\SUPERAntiSpyware.com\SUPERAntiSpyware BINGO, here I do see a Quarantine folder and it contains "quarantine.db" however I have no idea how to use it. I'm going to do more research.
  3. I have a ton of stuff that SUPERAntiSpyware has detected but I DO NOT want it removed at this time. However when I returned to my PC this evening the SAS window stated that 8037 items had been removed, see the attached image, and a reboot was required. I'm not sure what kicked off the removal process, I've not been working on my PC for 19 hours.During my absence a SAS scan was completed and the removals was kicked off. Had I seen the screen that SAS found 8037 items I would have said NO to the removal. My plan was to break the scan down into several smaller scan that I could much more easily manage. How do I reverse the removal? At this time I have NOT rebooted my system. I can restore my C drive but I suspect that stuff was found on my other 10 drives. I do have backups of the other drives but they are mirror images thus if SAS has removed something from these drives the mirror backup would just mirror the removal. My plan was to note the items found by SAS in the smaller scans and possibly delete the entire folder containing the found item. In that I have not rebooted at this time is there a reversal process?
  4. After SAS scans my system it presents me with a list of threats (see the image). In this window I have the option to either search google or mark it as good or delete the object. Rather than just deleting the object I might desire to delete other files in the folder and possible delete the folder. Thus I'd like to see an additional option that would allow me to open the folder containing the object or the option to copy the path to my clipboard and then I could paste the path in my file manager application and open the folder for inspection.
  5. Super bummer, hard to believe that this option is not available in the product today. Tks for the feedback.
  6. On my system I currently have 11 hard drives ranging in size from 3TB to 6TB several of the drives are for backup only and I really don't want to scan them because the source for the content should be scanned. I have SUPERAntiSpywarePro 6.0.1210 installed. I clicked on Scheduled Scanning and created a scan however in the settings I don't see any option to select the drives/folders I want included in the scan. I'd like to create custom scans for my data drives where I would select one 6TB drive just to ensure the scan would complete in my off hours. In this case I'd have multiple schedule custom scan where each custom scan would be for different drives/folders.
  7. At this time I'm not sure what I'm getting prompted for but I don't want any prompts, e.g. I want SAS to apply any and all updates without my intervention. I realize this is not a feature in the current version but I hope that it is in the next update.
  8. Hopefully with v5 you can add the function to schedule scans. I've reviewed my logs and there does not seem to be any pattern as to when SAS performs a scan. Some of my systems are older systems and when the scan kick in the performance hit is very noticeable. I would much prefer to schedule the scans to take place when I'm most likely not using the system.
  9. Yes I saw and I use the current option to check for updates. It is the enhancement in v5 that I desire. I look forward to the enhancement, later this year (hopefully)!!!
  10. I'm running SAS Pro 4.45.1000 - I see an option to check for updates but I don't see an option to automatically apply the updates. I want SAS to automatically check for updates and if there is an update I want it automatically applied without prompting me. Is there such an option?
  11. For spyzooka, I've scanned the web, as stated above, and found mixed (negative/positive) comments. Thus I don't know who to believe and I trust the feedback of people posting in this forum much much much more. I'm running SAS Pro on my "current" (will be replaced in a couple of weeks) laptop and it has a serious performance issue. Currently I don't know if it is virus related, MS WinXP related, or hardware related or blot with all the applications I've installed on it. Thus I'm attempting to reach out the people I consider trusted experts. Sorry if this is the wrong forum.
  12. Any comments on SpyZooka? See http://www.spyzooka.com/. I've got the FireFox "web of trust" add-in installed and it flags the site as untrustworthy. With a little research (more required) I see both negative/positive comments, I don't know who to believe.
  13. What about Comodo BOClean ? see http://www.comodo.com/boclean/boclean.html
