What does SAS really do/block?

Recommended Posts

And what I mean is I've had it for a long time now, a couple of years at least IIRC, I let it load up & run in the background yet I still have to do manual scans which it finds a ton of stuff, some that say trojan/malware, that I feel it should be blocking & removing by itself.

So, what does this program really do aside from making me do the scans & removals?

I mean, isn't it supposed to automatically block/clean tracking cookies, trojans, malware, etc. or am I missing what this program is supposed to do.

Thanks

hey butch.. sorry i didn't reply sooner.. i started to reply, earlier, but cancelled it..

SAS will not block malware from being downloaded, but, if a malicious file tries to run, SAS will block it from running, if it is covered by SAS's malware-definitions..

i don't know what you are seeing when you run a scan with SAS.. you could post a SAS scan-log if you want to..

if the same malware keeps being regenerated on your computer, after SAS removes it, it is possible that you have a rootkit that SAS is not removing and that the rootkit is regenerating malicious files or that it is downloading malicious files..

What exactly are you seeing on your system? Please post a scan log here for review.
