Is this happening to anyone else?

Recommended Posts

First let me say I am almost entirely computer illiterate.

Superantispyware (SAS) has done great up till two weeks ago, i'd run it two or three times a day, always getting some result, & updating as often. Recently, all scans result in nothing found. What's up with this? Am I doing something wrong or is there a new thing preventing SAS from doing its job?

Running an antimalware program two or three times a day is needless and excessive.

Please post the latest SAS log for review.

You could probably define my internet usage as needless & excessive. If it's catching stuff every time, use would seem warrented. Am I causing some damage by using it so often?

Application Version : 4.34.1000

Your application version is several versions behind. I've noticed that version 4.34.1000 has had problems updating to new program versions. In order to update to the latest version use the SASUNINST utility found here. Then download the latest version of SuperAntiSpyware and install it. Once it's installed and updated, try running a scan once again and post the log for it. Also, if you know what version of windows you're using and whether it's 32 or 64-bit, that might help too.

The moment you turn on your computer,your causing damage.

Any type of malware scan will further such.

Is it possible for me to get an old version of SAS? I loved the job it was doing before July, hasn't worked well since, or hasn't seemed to. It used to show removing lots of stuff & now only does so rarely. I doubt that the stuff I used to pick up has gone away so what's the deal?

The logs show that SAS is detecting cookies that get installed every time you go on the internet.

There's no problem with what you've reported :)

Except the application version in your log file is 4.40.1002 and the newest is 4.41.1000. I doubt that you'll see any new items being detected, but there is a significant speed increase in scanning that is pretty nice. If you haven't already updated to the newest version I would suggest doing so.
