    Real time is mostly signitures, But with a little amount of Heur detection.

    In my oppinion its alright but don't rely on it.

    Good as a backup thou....

    He didnt say not on execution, the realtime protection is not a HIPS but should be realtime detection/termination based on a blacklist, database as you call it and the heuristics are generic and you shouldnt depend on any tool to provide that 100 protectionrate

    SUPERAntiSpyware Professional offers a 15-day fully functional free trial. You may try all features unrestricted during this time period. After the trial period expires I believe the program will notify you with a pop up stating that the trial has expired and give you a purchase option.

    From i have know SAS Pro is often used in combination with AV's that don't offer real time protection or eventually with AV's with smaller detection rates.

    Although Behaviour Blocker IMHO would be better choice. And better would be combination of both.

    It's mostly used with combination with Antivir (Free) .

    I use it 24/7 with no matter what other security I have installed on my PCs. With the very low resources it uses it doesnt hurt a thing. And my little girl likes the yellow bug.

    A2 has a huge database and has Mamutu in plus an antivirus name ikurus which is good at detecting viruses:thumb: superantispyware is good for clean up the house but not for virues:D A2 is a more complete antimalware solution and the shield is very alive too;)

    Did A2 produce lots of FPs? Does it use a lot of resources? Wouldnt SAS pro + AV like NAV and behaviour blocker like Mamutu or Threatfire offer similar protection?

    Just a hint: If you saved the .EXE file in your My Downloads folder when you installed it, just put your mouse arrow over the file and it will tell you when you installed it. If it's a 15 day trial, you could even guess when you installed it. You can't be too far off. If it was me I'd just buy it. You won't be sorry. :D

    same here on xp and vista. it is on all my clients computers running vista or xp and it runs with no problems and uses very little resources. I highly recommend it.

    I have the paid version of a2. It uses a LOT of memory, >100mb. Scanning is very slow, but it does have a very extensive database. It was too much memory for not having a firewall, imo.

    I support that same assessment, SAS is highly exceptional at pulling out the most very resistful malwares/rootkits, etc. and also A2 w/ Mamutu is IMO again very superb at it's specialty in intercepting and dismissing source intrusion disruptors.

    Now therein IMO lies a Magnificant tandem together if that be a user's part of their choice security, as well as throwing in Sandboxie/Returnil, etc.
