SAS and Vista Defender

Recommended Posts

I looked in my Vista Defender History and see the following item:

---------------------------------------------

Description:

This program has potentially unwanted behavior.

Advice:

Permit this detected item only if you trust the program or the software publisher.

Resources:

driver:

SASDIFSV

file:

C:\Program Files\SUPERAntiSpyware\SASDIFSV.SYS

Category:

Not Yet Classified

----------------------------------------------

I have SAS 4.23.1006 / 3671 / 1650 and Vista Premium

Does anyone know what this is all about?

Should I be worried about it?

Will it cause "potentially unwanted behavior?"

Why did Defender 'pick it up?'

Does SAS programers know about it?

What should I do about it?

Thanks for any help.

Thank you very much.

What should I do about the entry in the Defender History?

If I should delete it, will it keep showing up every time I run a Defender Scan?

Thanks again, Alice

also when you install SAS- windows defender will ask you to "permit/block" SAS drivers. You must click "permit". You might be seeing this because you did not see WD ask you what to do and it took it upon itself to do what it wants.

When you run a scan with WD it might popup and ask you to "Permit" SAS's drivers to run. At this point just click-Yes

The History in WD is just a log file. As long as SAS is running correctly and in EVENT Viewer you see no red error msgs don't worry about it.

The worst thing you might have to do is if you see red error msgs is to reinstall SAS and when WD asks you what to do you click "Permit". WD will popup in the right hand corner of your task bar and turn blue when this happens.

No, never saw pop-up from Defender asking for approval. (Please forgive me for all the questions, etc., as I am very new at all of this.)

Should I just leave the SAS entry in the Defender history log? If I delete it, will it keep showing? Just very confusing.

Thank you for your help and for your patience.

Guess everyone who has SAS and Vista will show same thing in Defender History.

(So many programs trying to 'get along' with so many other programs.)
