Vista O/S, I have loaded superantispyware several times in the past, it goes on for hours with only the time clock appearing to work. Does the 'files scanned','memory items scanned etc' only show once the scan has completed or should these clock up as the programme is working just like other AVs etc.

The files being scanned should be visible as the scan proceeds.

It takes about 10 minutes for SUPERAntispyware to run a basic check on my system and about 50 minutes for a complete scan.

Have you configured it to scan only the disk(s) required from Settings?

As SAS is scanning the number items scanned will be shown on the right

Infact it will not let me close it down, it asks me the question do i wish to abort answer yes and carries on!

I too have SUPERAntispyware, but not this odd behaviour.

Uninstalling then re-installing might be the quickest way to fix it.

Thanks for that, I will try Uninstalling it and re-install, I had to shut the computer down to stop the programme from running.

after you uninstall use ccleaner to tidy up before you here

There was a problem a while back with DDA (Direct Disc Access?), a "new technology built in" but it affected only a limited number of computers and has been sorted by an update about a week ago.

Whether or not this has anything to do with your problems, I don`t know.

Thanks everybody I have uninstalled it, but I think I will call it a day for the moment. When I put it on again I now know what to expect and will see from then. I will tick as resolved.
