    ye i found it a bit strange myself, especially considering that the process was only using 600k... i thought something was wrong at first as well, but i guess it is just that light on memory :doubt:

    Just a question: a lifetime license ?

    What kind of business model is that ? (How long is it going to be around!)

    Would you really buy/get a valuable license for, say 5 years, 10 years, 20 years o_O

    No offense, but why did you buy SAS Pro if you already have ZoneAlarm Pro which has real-time antispyware?

    Fly,

    Superantispyware's and Malwarebytes business model of selling lifetime licenses isn't sustainable long term, just look at Boclean, Trojan Hunter, The Cleaner. They all tried the same thing and had to finally change there polices to charge annual fee's to survive. In Boclean case they just sold the company. Superantispyware and Malwarebytes can do this type of promotion now since they are still in the high growth stage, as they mature more and the revenue stream starts to go down and the costs keep going up they will have to change there pricing structure if they want to continue.

    Even if you only get 5 years out of the SAS Pro license it comes out to $4 yr. :shifty: MBAM is only a few bucks more. Personally I applaud their efforts. :thumb:

    You are actually incorrect. Speaking for SUPERAntiSpyware, I have been running businesses for over 20 years and this business model for almost 10 years......interesting we are still around. Market demand/need changes typically are what is the most challenging. If you are a "one trick pony", then yes you can have problems - they key is to plan for the future, not just the present :)
