SUPERAntiSpyware Free - Intended Purpose?

Recommended Posts

It's been suggested that the authors of SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes have commented privately to a particular newsgroup/forum contributer (PA Bear [MS MVP]) that SAS and MBAM are not intended for keeping the free version installed.

...furthermore, the authors of MBAM did not intend users to keep the free version installed.

There are free versions of MBAM & SAS. You didn't do anything wrong in using them. I simply don't recommend leaving them installed.

The author of MBAM already issued a rebuttal:

"This is completely false. We offer the free version everywhere and on purpose."

Would the author of SUPERAntiSpyware also please issue applicable comments and/or clarification.

TIA.

why would superantispyware offer a free version if they were not going to keep it free for those who want it this way?

Be thankful they do offer a free version. Most antispyware programs only offer a 14day or 30 day trial on their pro version. If they offered only a free version how the heck do you think they would stay in business?

And why would you ask me this question and telling me what I might know already?

Suggest you re-read my post - carefully, cautiously and in a deliberate unhurried manner!

What's wrong with you guys; Are you having a comprehension problem?

If you'd read my post more carefully than it would be clear to you or any anybody else that I did not state anything! I relayed comments made by a newsgroup/fora contributer (PA Bear).

No different story - PA Bear was referring to MBAM and SAS and I am after clarifications.

And nobody is whispering, just visit the n/g as posted here!

PS: You can't be very intelligent.
