sas free version and CPU usage

  sunnystaines 17:02 09 Feb 2014

now I have the free SAS which when not running only protects the homepge of the browser, but recently had a notification of high cpu usage from SAS.

anyone any idea what its up too.

To be honest I dident think the free edition did anything,unless you use it manually,will be interested in any replies.

tullie that was my opinion too but norton has twice flagged up high cpu by sas when nothing else running.

if i see the flag again i will hit task manager, at present shows 0% cpu & 0.7 ram.

It runs at start up and scans in the background,

I found this annoying so disabled it using the startups tool in CCleaner

and now only use it as a backup scanner to check Avast and Malwarebytes are doing the job.
