( SOLVED ) what exactly happens at startup?

Recommended Posts

i am running SAS free version.  since this version doesn't have 'real-time scanning', what exactly is it doing by loading at startup?  and since with the free version, you can't configure to automatically do scans at startup, why start with windows at all??  is something else being accomplished??  couldn't find this addressed anywhere (unless it's right there and i missed it). just very curious.  thanks in advance!!

Hi circe801,

 

The option to start the Free Edition with Windows is available so that:

 

1) the Home Page Protection feature starts operating when Windows starts

2) SAS is running and available to download new product binary updates (i.e. new versions of the program)

3) SAS is ready to perform an on-demand scan at a moment's notice

 

... in no particular order of importance.

 

Of course, starting SUPERAntiSpyware with Windows is completely optional.

 

Thanks,

 

Geoff
