Windows 7: SuperAntiSpyware incompatibilty

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
SuperAntiSpyware incompatibilty

In the earlier days of Windows 7 beta 7000, SAS was known to cause BSODs from being incompatible with Windows 7, mostly from the SASKUTIL driver/s.

Even though a lot of users report, including me, that it no longer caused BSODs in later builds, and appears to work OK, i.e., RTM, upon further use on my RTM x64, (do not know how it fairs on x86) I myself will no longer be using it until they have full Windows 7 support, due to still having incompatibility issues, even under Compatibility Modes and Administrator privilege, (and causing me to have a slightly slower boot time, even without the application in Auto Start), even if it is unknown to the user on the surface.

Even though, IMO, It is one of the better free or paid Antispyware applications out there, you may decide yourself as to use it any further until it has full Windows 7 support listed.

I agree to it. SAS causes a slowdown in system. When i right click on the SAS icon at the taskbar, it takes a very long time to display the options.

Why is the driver being blocked from loading? This probably should be a question you could ask yourself

SAS is slow to open (right clicking) for me, but that's the only problem I've had with it.

Hm, I've been running it normally without slowdowns. I only use the free version for on-demand scans though, so nothing running around in the background.
