Upgrade to version 5.0.1116 question

Recommended Posts

I just got a popup (btw nice look for it) asking me to do an upgrade

It also required a reboot

but when it went for the reboot it said it could not initialize superantispyware.exe because windows was shutting down

this error msg happend on all 4 computers (xp and windows 7, 32 bit and 64bit computers)

once it rebooted everything looks fine

can you please tell me what has been updated?

thanks

Hi,

'Just updated too; the major & positive changement I notice appears under "Preferences" > "Updates" : new option "Notify me when definition updates have been downloaded".

By unchecking this option, the systray pop-up window doesn't show up anymore after each definition update (making these updates completely "silent").

Well done & thanks to the SAS developers ! :)

(Win 7 SP1 x64 Professional)

Interesting!

I was running the alternate(more secure) SAS v5.0.1108 when I did the update and reboot. Afterwards, I was STILL running the 1108 ver! I quit it; rebooted(again) and started the regular ver. which indicated v5.0.1116. The alternate start even hid from it's own updater!!! Real Cool!!!

It must have been a timing issue on the shutdown; The update tool re-launches SUPERAntiSpyware after it's done with the update, but you're in the middle of a reboot so it wasn't able to launch. We'll probably just remove the re-launch if the updater has initiated a reboot (might be as soon as the next release). It's unusual for us to have to update components that require a reboot, but there's bound to be some minor fixes after such a major release.
