Superantispyware (Product Update)

Hello all..I hope we're all well.

I was wondering if anybody have been experiencing what I have since the Product update that popped up a day Or so, now for, superantispyware.

Each and every time when I reboot Or close down, Windows will stall/hang for about 3/4/5 seconds, then continue to follow up with my request.

As soon as I uninstalled SAS Rebooting and shut downs went back to normal again.

I really do not wish to give up on SAS because I use this program quite frequently, and I have been using this program now for a good few years.

Thanks all.

Any response will be appreciated.

If you are using the free version just go into msconfig/Startup and uncheck SAS.

Hi,
I haven't seen any issue but then again I didn't have sas startup with windows or install a startup item
So are you aware how your settings are ?
I do have the pro version so if it were doing anything freaky I imagine I would notice,
Cheers.

Thank you both for being so informative. I just re-installed the FREE SAS and now experiencing the same when rebooting and closing down. Which is making me scratch my head, for the years that I have had SAS, nothing like this has ever occurred before, for the many years of use.

Now since following your directions, Thrash,...By unchecking the above shut downs and restarts are now running flawlessly.

Do you have any idea, since updating why it has choose to do, what I have described? Out of curiosity.

Thanks again.

Hi,
Well some have said it's getting a bit resource hungry so I guess it depends on how much you have to spare
The free version wouldn't matter if it starts with windows or not because all it basically is a scanner which does I believe scan on a schedule on the freebie I can't remember that one,
But either way fill in your system spec's completely with the link above my signature and we'll have a better idea at what you have to work with,

Also go back to msconfig and take some screen shots of the Startup section and Services don't forget to check the box on the bottom left to Hide All Microsoft services the list will be allot shorter
Cheers.
