  1. Or you could visit a forum that offers assisted log cleaning with tools such as ComboFix and HijackThis. They can be downloaded from BleepingComputer. Note: ComboFix is not 64 bit compatible.
  2. I run BitDefender Pro and Outpost Pro in the form of BullGuard. BullGuard is a small Danish company and they (in their forums and online support) actually say that SuperAntiSpyware Pro is a fine program and that it is compatible with BullGuard Internet Security. (Latest edition) But I have recently begun to suspect that SAS Pro is tracking BullGuards updates? BullGuards updates are very slow now suddenly and SASs activity in Task Manager rises when BullGuard updates it's data. Or am I wrong? SAS is not in the way of BullGuards updates?
  3. I think it's a mistake on both SAS and Secunia's behalf. It's reporting that is insecure. No such version of SAS exists. However, the number is mentioned in the GUI on SUPERAntiSpyware Control Center's Help page. Also the SAS .exe file in the programme folder shows So this is some sort of a false positive in Secunia PSI caused by a inconsistency in SAS's numbers. The number should be 4.34.1000, I believe. I found some of this mentioned in Secunia's forum....
  4. Well, now we have to wait for the experts to arrive. They may also want a log from SUPERAntiSpyware itself, it suddenly occurred to me. Meanwhile you could let an online scanner run from a tab also. Microsoft offers a free anti-malware scanner nowadays. This one - remember to change language if you're not in the US: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm Other useful things are scannow and chkdsk - but run the online scanner first.

  5. Hi SpinDizzy I apologize up front for posting at all because it is not good netiquette for common users to write in a log or malware thread. However, I know for at fact that a HijackThis log can be useful for experts sometimes and I think you should post a HijackThis log also. Regard this as a fellow user's suggestion - not as expert advice: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/hijackthis.php
  6. The security expert, Luka Milkovic, has reported some vulnerabilities in SUPERAntiSpyware. Now Secunia PSI reports SAS as insecure. Secunia PSI claims that an update is available at your homepage. But there is no update there. I run 4.34.1000. What's going on and what should I do?
  7. Will there be yet another version of SAS this year? I was very disappointed to see yesterdays change log: no 64-bit native drivers?
  8. I'd like an update about the progress, please? When will SUPERAntipyware be fully compatible with Windows 7 - for 32-bit as well as 64-bit? I'm especially interested in news about the 64-bit compatibility. I love SUPERAntiSpyware and have my fingers crossed for it's 64-bit future. Some loose estimate about the approximated time frame would be very welcome.
  9. Thank you, all you fine guys. Now I'm reassured that it will all be fine. You will be ready in time. Thanks again.
  10. Any news about this? Windows 7 goes RTM next week and I intend to get it as soon as they start selling. There is a chance that Microsoft will allow pre-installed Windows 7 to ship with new machines long before Oktober 10.th. If so, I'll get myself a new pc with win7 on it. So I'm very interested in news. Please?

    Reset Hosts File

    Actually, I knew that. That is why I thought, that there was a need for my suggestion. To reset the hosts file to the version, one would get if the PC was completely reformatted and all programs reinstalled. An option to go back to square one...
  12. If you go to: Start -> Run -> write "Shell:Cookies" -> click on a line -> Ctrl+a -> Delete -> Yes it will kill 95 pct. of all your cookies in an instant. It's the fastest way in my experience.
  13. I don't accept cookies at all and it's hardly any trouble at all. The "problems" are few and very far apart: - I only encountered one newspaper that would not show because of it so I had to allow that one cookie. - Approximately one in 40 downloads will fail because of it. You get a small popup that tells you so. Then you go to Tools and allow that one cookie in, try the download again and all is well. - Some Forums make your reply disappear and you'll have to write your answer all over again. But I usually remember to allow cookies for Forums - Some sites will not let you register a user account. But again: then just allow the cookie. - You can't vote in some polls. Newspapers uses cookies (and more) to make sure you don't vote twice. But if you must vote - then allow their cookie. - If you run ComboFix the log will say: "FINDSTR: cannot open temp01". That's because it's closed - this is where the cookies would have gone. It is best to open it before running ComboFix so that it can do it's work properly. So allow cookies again before a major clean up. When you have allowed your usual/favourite sites there is not much to it. Most sites you never log in to anyway. The worst that can happen is that you will have to do the same thing again. Click the download button again. Login again. Or write your Forum reply again. And such incidents are rare. And it wont happen if you remembered to allow the site's cookie.

    Reset Hosts File

    Am I wrong to assume that it actually would be quite easy for SUPERAntiSpyware to delete the old mess that users or Malware made and replace it with a Windows standard Hosts File? Just replacing the damaged file with a new correct version?
  15. Is it possible to add this new feature to the repair section in SUPERAntiSpyware? I never added anything to my Hosts File myself but Malicious programs might easily have done it for me. And even if Malware didn't make any changes - strange things sometimes happen anyway. I make mistakes as a user - we all do. So I thought it would be nice to have an option to click a repair option inside SAS and get a fine clean and brand new Hosts File that way. I think I would have the courage to use the Hosts File as an intelligent way of blocking dirty sites if I new that SUPERAntiSpyware could help me reset the Hosts File if I messed up. If I forgot to choose "Save as" for example...
