SuperAntiSpyware doesn't work for everyone who has Win7. It causes an immediate BSOD on my system

Most likely because you are running build 7100.

Running the RTM here and it works just fine...scanning in the background right now.

Now I have Comodo Firewall, ESET Nod32, Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware.

Isn't security fun?

Anyone else get this icon on their desktop? I know that AVCare is a virus/spyware of some sort, but there is nothing else on my system other than this icon, which of course I deleted.
I think what happened, the rogue got in (all rogue installers are randomized and hard for antivirus to detect)
Then it started, but ESET deleted its main .exe file (such as AVcare.exe)
so then the program wont run.
I recommend doing a scan with malwarebytes anti-malware
