In vista I ran MWB Pro and SAS Pro, in windows 7 I find loading SAS crashes my machine, and MWB makes it freeze.
Anyone else with these problems?

It would help if you would list what “MWB Pro and SAS Pro” are it would save us guessing

Sorry thought that you would understand.
Superantyspware Professional
MalwareBytes Pro (Paid for version)

I have just loaded Ad Aware Free and it is running, it seems for some reason W7 does not like "Real Time Protection"
However I have tried SAS & MWB free download with disaterous results.

No problems with any anti spyware on Windows 7 Home 64 bit. Loaded Malwarebytes, Adaware and Spybot (all free versions).

I had to giggle that you expected anyone to know what MWB Pro and SAS Pro stood for ;)

Running SAS pro on Win 7 with no issues. Only have the free version of MBAM.

there were reported problems with SAS on w7 32 bit in the windows7 forum. MBAM reported ok.

I would hold back and expect a fix shortly.

Ive run both free versions on 7 without any problems,

Try turning off your Antivirus first then see if they run OK

What AV are you using do you have windows defender activated?

To all my readers MWB should say MBAM , I do appologise.

At the moment AVG Free. Winows Defender is turned off
