"SAS has stopped working" Windows 7 error

Recommended Posts


I receive a "Superantispyware has stopped working" error on my Windows 7  laptop which I am unable to resolve. I have attached the error details from event viewer and would appreciate any assistance.

Thanks in advance,



After posting the above, I noticed that this problem had been brought up in the following forum posts:

March 31 2018    SAS stopped working

April 22 2019       Scan is stopping

May 15 2019       Error when scanning

I uninstalled SAS in Windows safe mode then rebooted and installed the latest SAS version. I checked the "Safe Mode" option in SAS as suggested in the reply to the March 31 2018 post and started a scan.

The scan ran for just over three and a half hours then SAS  stopped working again .




I hope this problem can be solved as I have used SAS for many years without any problems until recently.

I just noticed that the event viewer information that I attached to the original post got left out when I edited it to add additional information.
