Newbe Intro and a Q

Recommended Posts

Hey all, first I would like to Hi. ok done that.

Would like to say SAS is brilliant, but I cant till it actually gets the opportunity to do something.

Outline on my system security:

NOD32 EAV3 (NOD user for 4 years)

Outpost 4 with Blockpost regularly updated and blocking 2122637 ip's - (spyware plugin disabled)

SAS Pro (real time)

Windows defender monitoring my registry and selected system files

Regularly updated HOST file based on MVPS

35832 Restricted sites listed in IE and my proxy server.

Firefox and T/bird are primary net apps

All work happily together have had no clashes or issues.

Now I downloaded and purchased SAS lifetime on reviews and reports I had found all over the net, and one main reason was the bad reports and tests that the AS side of NODs EAV3 had received, for example all tests here http://www.anti-malware-test.com/ failed miserably (AV side of it is brilliant).

So as one can see the system is pretty well Teflon coated and if anything pooped on it, it would probably slide right off. (One hopes that is the theory)

So here is the question:

Is there anywhere out there that one can goto to see if all this effort and cost is actually working. I have been surfing and surfing with IE to see if I can get a drive by, but no one loves me enough to give me one :(

There are sites of course that will infect your system, but it's best to just stay away from them as even with the best defenses you could get infected.....

Thanks for the reply, no I am not trying to invoke an argument. Yes I know there are sites out there, but my question is "Is there any test sites or the likes that have benign proof of concept test files???"

If someone tells me "that blue door over there opens to the outside not the inside" (Removes ALL the Spyware, NOT just the Easy ones!), hey it probably does but the proof is in actually going over and opening door yourself to see if it actually does do whats claimed.

Remove ALL the Spyware, NOT just the Easy Ones!

I don't work for Superantispyware, but I am a very satisfied user. I am not going to tell you exactly where to go but think porn, piracy, and p2p.

When I was thinking of using Superantispyware I completely hosed my test computer and then put Superantispyware to work. I was so impressed at how good SAS worked I bought the pro version straight away. In my non testing surfing on my everyday machine the chances are pretty remote I will run into anything but if I do I am totally confident that Superantispyware has got my back.

I started to use superantispyware because i had a client's computer that had 250 trojans and spyware s and she did not want me to reformat the drive. On a particular newsgroup someone mentioned this product. Since I only was able to get rid of some of them, I figured one more program can't hurt. Superantispyware actually found more and got rid of all of them. I made sure by taking off system restore, going into safe mode and running the program again.

After this I became totally impressed and continue to use this program and it has not failed me yet. I even wrote a beginners manual for each client I put this program on for. Some opt for the free (only those who will run scans weekly and some opt for the pro because they want the protection in real time. This program has no conflicts with any program on your computer- believe me I have put it on about 50 to date with no problems at all.

I teach the OS Vista and XP and I fix computers (majority of taking of virus/trojans/spyware) and I give seminars to companies, and non profit organizations and I tell everyone about this product. I am on several security forums and Microsoft security newsgroups (you will see me as robinb) and when asked about a good antispyware program- I only recommend Superantispyware as the first protection.

You will not be disappointed by this product. What i especially like is the team here will help you even if you have their free version. I have rarely seem this any where in any forum I go to.

Well said Robin.

I'm the owner of a large computer repair business, and we disinfect about a dozen computers per week. Of those, the majority are running Norton, McAfee or AVG.

I was introduced to sas about a year ago and thoroughly experimented with it. I was so impressed with sas's detection and removal ability that I stopped the usage of Spybot and AdAware.

SAS has become our scanner of choice.

I agree with Seth.

Although I am not the owner of a computer repair business, I, too, stopped using Spybot and Ad-Aware on my home computer. I am using SAS Pro (v4 pre-releases) and it is working beautifully. Can't wait for the final version 4.

Hey guys and gals, thanks for the input, sorry for not getting back to ya's sooner.

Well I finally had my real-time test pop up today, interestingly enough these products did not try anything on install or on execution, but when it came to uninstall time, thats when the alerts came up - (A~NSISu_.exe) Summary "Trojan.VXGame-Variant/D.rocess Unknown" trying to launch from temp during uninstall, are these false or something else. Yet when I do a mual scan of this file SAS reports nothing..

The products are from BySoft (a real time network monitor)

Any thanks again :)
