  1. I'm running the free SAS and i find it a real pain to update the program. The reason is this: The program is taking a long time to update and it's using alot of CPU/memory when doing so. These are the steps the program takes:

    Step 1: ''Searching for updates'' - No special CPU usage here, or memory for that matter

    Step 2: ''Downloading the update'' - nothing special here either

    Step 3: ''Searching for updates'' . I don't know why the program have to search for updates after downloading it allready, but here's where the problems starts. It hangs for a while, and CPU spikes to 100% and memory up to 120MB(!).

    Overall time to update is ~2 mins.

    PC specs (running SAS on 2 computers, same behaviour on both):

    2 ghz CPU, 2 GB ram, win XP SP3

    Should be plenty enough to run a program like this. Any feedback? Thanks.


  2. SuperAntiSpyware does not protect against viruses, so yes you need other protection aswell. Though if you use SAS Pro and other realtime malware scanners (pretty sure Nod32 has one for example), i suggest disabling one of them, as 2 realtime malware protectionprograms isn't recommended. Nod32 and SAS free on the other hand, works fine without problems.
