Hey guys

I've just updated "Superantispyware", on completeion of the update, my system crashed.

I've uninstalled, and reinstalled and the same thing happened.

Any tips guys?

Updated mine this morning without problems - try a System Restore to a known good configuration.

No problems here either.
For reference:
Program Version 4.0.1154
Definition Database:
Core 345
Trace 1443

Thanks for that guys, tbh, I've never been able to install superantispyware, I wonder if it's conflicting with something, I don't have any other spyware / malware installed, only McAfee, and CC.

I've just checked, and mine is the same details as your re version etc, etc.

So why, precisely, were you trying to update it?

I regard updates as the regular, virtually daily, updating of the database...:-)

This thread is a follow onto from this: click here

I've tried to install superantispyware but no luck, when I mentioned the updates, that's what comes up once I've installed it, i.e "Check for updates"

No problems here, it is one of the best as far as I'm concerned

"I've tried to install superantispyware but no luck"
"that's what comes up once I've installed it"

There is something of a contradiction between these two statements!

OK. when I install superantispyware, it installs OK.

Then I get a pop up "Check for updates" updates install OK.

Then when I click scan - my comp crashes.

This is a known ongoing problem with SAS

Open SAS click preferences click scanning control

Untick use direct kernel file
and use kernel direct disc plus direct registry

It should scan OK now,
