Less files scanned in version 4.0 ?

Recommended Posts

I have seen someone have writed that the "old version (3.9)" scanned about 68000 files on his computer, but that version 4.0 only scanned about 26000files...

Another one have writed

"that version 4.0 scanned 45000 files. and version 3.9 92000 files...

There was a documented bug in version 3.9.1008 where the file count was being reported incorrectly. Version 4.0.1154 correctly reports the number of files scanned.

I just updated to version 4, and I also noticed that on two computers SAS Pro is scanning approx. half the usual # of Files.

It seems to me that there's quite a difference in the total amount of files scanned between version 3.9.1008 and 4.0.1154.

I think you should write that in the "Product Release History for SUPERAntiSpyware" that this bug is solved in version 4.0

And you write "IGAIN" i havent seen you have writed it other places.

And thx for the quick response :D

when I first started using SAS (probably 1 1/2 - 2 years ago, I do not remember the version), a SAS scan would total 30,000 some files. I think it was back in dec. 2006, I upgraded to a new version, and the files scanned were 1/2 to 1/3 of the normal files scanned (13,00 - 15,000).

SAS helped me try to figure out what was going on, eventually I upgraded to SAS Pro, whatever version # was running in Dec. of 2006. My files scanned went back up to 30,000 +.

Was the version of SAS Pro last year 3.9.1008 ?

If my aniti-virus (NOD32) scans 240,000 files, why does SAS only scan some 22,000 inlcuding memory and registry?

NOD32 scans pictures, music, etc. things that don't need to be scanned by SUPERAntiSpyware in the typical situation. Every application reports the scan counts differently, so it's not compairing apples to apples so to speak.

I changed my settings so that SAS scans almost all files....i run SAS about once

a week under those settings and then do some quicker scans also a few times per week...

Hi all,

Really do not want to be redundant here BUT I have to ask this question:

Using 3.9 during a complete scan the running time was 2hrs 4min which reported 38,115 files scanned

Version 4.0.1154 is showing 17,987 files scanned at 41 minutes!

This is far greater than a 50% reduction in scanning time.

Don't get me wrong, I am really happy with this as I will now scan more often.

Does this great a reduction fall within the constraints of normality?

I sure hope so as this is really quite fantastic!

Thanks!

The amount of time and files scanned are correct in 4.0.
