No, there's no reason it should be using high CPU unless it's scanning. Does it use high CPU when you run it every time or just the once?

You shouldn't need to reinstall.  I was just wondering if the high CPU happens every time to launch SAS or if it was an isolated incident?

Hello,

 

I have the same issue with version 6.0.1146 running on Windows 7: after windows starts, SuperAntiSpyware is using 50% while it is NOT scanning.

The only solution I found is to kill it...

 

How can we troubleshoot this to solve that issue?

Weird, because my SAS Free never use more than 50% if it not scanning, also can you make sure that there is no other program or software running in the background that using amount of huge CPU usage?

@MyLongTastyPickle: that's exactly the SAS free exe process which was using 50% cpu, no other one.

 

The good news now:

following my post here, the SAS dev team provided me a patched version for testing and the result was a SUCCESS!!!

A public fix will be out quite soon

 

Congrats to the SAS team!
