Hi folks; I recently updated to v.5 and the scans are a lot quicker thankfully. However one strange thing I did notice was that from the shortcut it wont launch first time. All that happens is that the small pop-up notice appears, then disapears and nothing. If I then double click the short cut again the small pop up appears, goes away and the program launches as normal and works well. This is the free edition. Strange but I have the same problem on both computers, a laptop running W7 64bit and a desktop also running W7 64bit. I have experimented on the laptop. On your FAQ page it suggests running RUNSAS.exe which I did and that produced an error box 'Program files not found' so I dowloaded and ran SASSAFERUN.com and that appeared to work. I launched SAS twice with no problems with just one double click of the shortcut. I'm not sure if SASSAFERUN has to be run every time you reboot, as when I rebooted the system was back to the normal problem having to be double clicked twice to launch SAS. Of course it's not really a problem having to try and launch the program twice; just takes a few seconds more but felt you aught to know about it; perhaps it's only a problem with W7 64bit OS. I've notice a new entry in my start list 'SuperAntispyware Registration/Activation' which I assume you have to use if you subscribe to the paid version? Or is this needed for the free version as well; I've never clicked on that; perhaps that's what the problem is. Please advise. Many thanks, Mike.
