  1. Auto-updater prompted me to download the latest version when I booted laptop this evening. After update, I scanned again and all is clean. I will do daily scans to ensure that nothing comes back after reboots. Kudos to this product! Most likely I will purchase for continued realtime protection after the trial period.
  2. I will do that when I get home from work. I guess I need to do something besides click on the button to check for updates, which is what I did prior to the last scan. Does that only check for updates to the definitions?
  3. Update: New definitions came out after I did the scans mentioned above. I downloaded those then scanned again. Adware Vundo Variant seems to be gone now. YAY! I do have some "Unclassified.Unknown Origin" items show up now: SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log https://www.superantispyware.com Generated 12/30/2008 at 08:57 AM Application Version : 4.23.1006 Core Rules Database Version : 3689 Trace Rules Database Version: 1665 Scan type : Complete Scan Total Scan Time : 00:54:04 Memory items scanned : 636 Memory threats detected : 0 Registry items scanned : 7760 Registry threats detected : 5 File items scanned : 28408 File threats detected : 1 Unclassified.Unknown Origin HKLM\Software\Classes\CLSID\{EC43E3FD-5C60-46a6-97D7-E0B85DBDD6C4} HKCR\CLSID\{EC43E3FD-5C60-46A6-97D7-E0B85DBDD6C4} HKCR\CLSID\{EC43E3FD-5C60-46A6-97D7-E0B85DBDD6C4}\InprocServer32 HKCR\CLSID\{EC43E3FD-5C60-46A6-97D7-E0B85DBDD6C4}\InprocServer32#ThreadingModel C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\PEBAPEHE.DLL HKCR\CLSID\{EC43E3FD-5C60-46A6-97D7-E0B85DBDD6C4} Should I be concerned? I am still using the trial version, but will purchase if this software proves to be able to keep my system clean. Many thanks!
  4. Last week I determined that my laptop had been infected by a couple of trojans, Vundo and FakeAlert. I was using Spyware Doctor and McAfee antivirus. Scans by Spyware Doctor would detect the malware and said it removed it, but the problems kept coming back. I searched several forums and many suggested trying SuperAntiSpyware. After I was satisfied that this was legitimate software, I downloaded the trial version of SAS Pro yesterday and scanned my computer. SAS found and removed several trojans, etc., but the Adware Vundo Variant keeps coming back after each reboot. I disconnected from the internet, disabled McAfee AV, turned off system restore, booted in safe mode and ran SAS. It finds 3 occurrences of Adware Vundo Variant in the registry. After I choose to fix the problems, it says I must reboot to complete the fix. I reboot (again in safe mode) and rerun SAS to see if the malware still exists. It does. What am I doing wrong? Or what else can I do to rid my laptop of this junk? Kind of a newbie with all of this, so be gentle....
