Warning - Superantispyware Installer Will Cause BSOD

Tried it twice without and then with compatibility mode - each time BSOD before the installation can complete.

Fortunately you can boot back up again successfully. Good job as SA wont uninstall in Safe Mode.

I had to download and run their uninstaller as it fails to appear in CP > Programs > Uninstall a Program.

I've attached it if anyone else falls victim. It takes a couple of seconds to run and then reboot is necessary.

It's a pity as SA is quite a good anti-spyware agent & is a good last resort against Vundo before going the Hijackthis route.

Was the system infected when you tried to install? We have over 12 million active users, so this is not a common thing to have happen and we like to track down any such issue.

Nick, no it wasn't and I was surprised as I use Superantispyware on all my other OS's.

I remember the BSOD said something about saskutil.sys. If I knew where the dump was I'd publish it but it's probable too large anyway.

Don't forget that Windows 7 is in a pre-beta stage at present.

It's likley because of some of the proprietary stuff we are doing in that kernel driver - was this a 32 bit or 64 bit system?

32-bit. The only other protection I had at the time was Avast A/V.

Win7 already has excellent antispyware, Windows Defender, why would you even bother with a 3rd party product?
