Windows 7: SuperAntispyware 6 Released

I still consider Malwarebytes better (and testing seems to bear that out). But it is apples and oranges, each has it's strengths. I have both as active protection, and even with both free, it costs nothing to have two. I also have Emsisoft free which I run in my weekly scans before creating images. I see few mention it, but I consider it also well worth having

Emsisoft Anti-Malware for best protection - Free removal of Viruses, Bots, Spyware, Keyloggers, Trojans and Rootkits

It gives you 30 days full protection if you want it, then reverts to an on demand scanner. I just choose to decline the 30 day full, and install it as free from the beginning.

IMHO, not to well. Malwarebytes is much better at malware detection. I use it as a second opinion scanner to malwarebytes. It does catch the nastiest threats in my testing though. I still prefer malwarebytes over this program in detection and removal.

What must you do to get the new version?

I've got the SUPERAntiSpyware Professional (ver. 5.7.1026) with Lifetime Subscription Active, Automatic Updates enabled with Automatically Install Application Updates and I haven't seen any indication of a new version. I've checked for updates several times with no new application update.

Ditto! I keep it installed and use it fairly regularly along with MBAM and other on demand scanners. I like the configuration options and it does work pretty well.

The update is slowly being pushed out over the next 2 weeks. If you want to update immediately, just download it from there site.

Hi there. I just want thank you for the tip about Emsisoft anti-malware! I had checked that earlier and I thought it was a trial with a time limit! If I ever want to check it out I now know it's not a "time limited" version. Thanks again.

As Andrew said, just D/L the latest from their site. It will uninstall the older version, and insert your key in the new version. They are rolling it out to automatic updates a bit at a time. It's not about the program, it's about making sure the automatic update server is OK

I've been using it since it was A Squared. I had the full version for a while, but decided I liked it better as on demand. I already have two better active programs (MBAM and SAS). It is a good program though. Tell truth, none of them find anything on my system, lol. Reminds me of the story George Gobel told on Johnny Carson...

Starts about 1:00 mark, the whole thing is hilarious
