DDA and SAFE mode

Recommended Posts

In another thread (about offline scanning), there's a mention that the use of DDA eliminates the advantage of scanning from SAFE mode. Is this generally true, or just in the context of that particular discussion?

If generally true, then that would be a very significant piece of information for users to know, and yet another feather in the cap of the new version.

DDA let's us see "everything" so Safe Mode is not needed as "much" as other scanners because it doesn't matter if drivers are loaded or not. Sometimes Safe Mode IS required because the spyware overruns the system and the performance is so slow you can't perform the scan - but Safe Mode provides no benefit as far as what we can "see" or remove.

So if there is no problem scanning without being in "safe mode" there is no reason to do a scan in safe mode.?

Wont there still be some malware that SAS will have easier to find in safe mode?

And is there then no difference in removing malware in safe mode or not either then ?

We can see everything in either mode - it will be removed the same.

It's still beneficial to scan in safe mode because chances are, if you're cleaning a hosed pc, that SAS will miss some infections and you'll need to resort to other removal tools.

Scanning in Safe Mode offers NO BENEFIT when using SUPERAntiSpyware - SAS can "see" anything from either mode, FYI. If you are using other removal tools, yes, Safe Mode can be a benefit.
