memory maxes out

Recommended Posts

i have tried three versions of sas including the latest pre release version 4.49. have noticed the ram fills up in a rush when scanning the files, twice i noticed the scan was on a .upk file in the game borderlands when my memory usage goes from around 2 gig of usage to 6 gig of usage in a matter of seconds, system jams up completely. i wait with my finger ready to end task in the task manager so as not to have to do a hard restart. have uninstalled with your uninstaller and reinstalled and no change. I am using windows firewall, security essentials, would like to run sas once in a while to make sure my box is clean, but am having no luck. here be my system specs.

Go to Preferences>Scanning Control tab and uncheck:

- Use Kernel Direct File Access (recommended)

- Use Kernel Direct Registry Access (recommended)

- Use Direct Disk Access (recommended)

Now try to perform a Complete Scan and see if the problem is resolved.

Is your Intel CPU the new I7 Sandy Bridge technology?

At any rate, please submit a Customer Support Request so that the SAS gurus can work with you to resolve this system specific issue.

processor is a bloomfield i believe, had it for near two years or so now.

Unchecking those options seems to have sorted out the problem.

As far as i know i had been using default setings, problem presented itself in quick and full scan.

Thanks for the help folks.
