    Manually Add Folders/Software to Trusted

    Is there a way to add a trusted "filetype" ? I may be wrong, but it seems like a .gif file, or .jpg file is unlikely to be a threat. There are lots of other filetypes as well... .txt, .bmp, .log etc... etc.. If these were not scanned, the entire procedure would take a lot less time.

    Superantispyware GUI

    Another alternative would be to examine the actual RGB values of the system colors, and if enough contrast exists, use them, otherwise default to something that IS visible.
  3. Its also really, really hard to accurately predict how much time is remaining. Progress bars are the biggest liars... As long as you can see that activity is taking place, I see no need for a progress bar.

    Restore / Remove (Quarantined)

    Its ok. I like to complain about windows too... Like the close window button (X) right next to the maximize button... Or in a folder, right-click on a file or folder and you will find 'Delete' right next to 'Rename'.... I only posted the suggestion because I was stupid enough to do it once.

    Unremovable Registry Keys

    Where are the scan logs kept? I've already deleted the keys that SUPERAntiSpyware was unable to delete. If this ever happens again, I will let you know.

    Restore / Remove (Quarantined)

    It would be nice if these two buttons were not right next to one another. Also, the names look alot like one another. For the nearly blind, could they be called something else? Why is the "Restore" button on top? I would think most people would use the "Remove" button far more often than the "Restore" button. The last thing we want anyone to do is to "restore" a bunch of adware/spyware/virus crap back onto their system by accident, right? Its too easy to do with the current UI.

    Trojan.Fake-Drop/Gen

    If some virus/adware is being tricky and restoring these files, I'd suggest one trick I've used to really nail these things. Go into safe mode and delete the files manually. Once they are gone, create a folder with the same exact name. Make it read-only. Then when whatever is trying to create the files runs again, it will fail. The virus is clueless as to what happened.
  8. The problem I see here, is that in order to provide a progress bar, SUPERAntiSpyware would first have to count how many Memory, Registry and File items there are to scan. This would require a scan of the registry and the filesystems, before it could even start with the real work. I am sure no one likes waiting around for any antispyware to complete. Why make this process take even longer?

    Unremovable Registry Keys

    During some scans of SUPERAntiSpyware, some keys are identified as threats, but the software is unable to remove them, even after rebooting, or running in Windows Safe-mode. The software claims that these keys might still be in use, but that isn't the case. The problem is that the permissions/ownership of the keys are set to something that even the administrator cannot delete. To solve it, the ownership of the key has to be set first to the Administrator. Once that is done, then the permissions can be set to include the Adminstrator. Then the key is deletable. This process can be done manually using regedit, but it would be nice to have SUPERAntiSpyware recognize this situtation and deal with it.
