Thank You, SUPERAntiSpyware!

Recommended Posts

Thank you SO much for developing this amazing program.

I had something seriously wrong my computer (7 Ultimate 64-bit): I would click an executable (sidebar.exe in particular) and then Windows would spit back an error that it couldn't find the executable. But it was just this one executable, so I thought it was some weird conflict or weird error; just another random Windows glitch.

The more I thought about, though, and this looked like a ridiculous error. I AM CLICKING THE EXECUTABLE FILE; HOW CAN YOU NOT FIND IT?!

Which led me to think virus/spyware, etc. I tried Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware Free version, but they found absolutely nothing. I was about to do a repair installation of Windows!

But, then I called Microsoft's Infection Support Hotline (whatever it's called). They spent over 1.5 replacing files and nothing. Then they tried SUPERAntiSpyware and, boom, it instantly found two Security.Hijack[imageFileExecutionOptions] files, aptly titled SIDEBAR.EXE and SIDEBAR.EXE#Debugger.

I restarted: boom, problem solved. Everything works now! Woohoo! So, yeah, thank you for making a program that works when others fail: the world needs this!

Thank you; I appreciate it! :)

Funny thing; I reported to the Microsoft Security Essentials the rogue key and they did not seem very pleased that another program had caught the file. :D

Everyone detects different things :) That is why one solution is never enough! These days~ you need multilayered protection.
