    SUPERAntiSpyware 3.2 Pre-Release is now available for testing. There are quite a few changes in this release and we have implemented many user suggested items. The primary focus of this release is internal technology, so not all of the GUI suggestions have made it to this release. They are on our "wish list" and will not be forgotten.

    Interface and Functionality Changes

    * Right-click menu allows enabling and disabling of real-time protection
    * Program version displayed on main screen
    * Link to access File Research Center (What's Running on Your Computer) Added to Main Screen
    * Access to scanning control/preferences added in the scanning configuration screen. This allows preferences to be altered without going all the way back to the main screen.
    * Custom scan now allows cookie scanning to be turned on and off
    * Definition downloading/updating progress dialog to provide feedback while downloading definition updates
    * Definition updated dialog showing updated definitions with a link to the updates for those interested in what was updated on each definition update

    Technology Changes

    * Quick scan is now faster
    * Kernel Direct File and Registry access allows sidestepping the entire Windows file and registry subsystems to uncover rootkits and user land hooking applications. We have been finding lots of these being installed from crack/warez sites.
    * Alternate Data Stream (ADS) scanning for NTFS formatted drives
    * ZoneMap Domain scanning can detect trusted bad domains, and restricted good domains. Many spyware applications block access to anti-virus and anti-spyware sites to prevent users from getting applications to remove the infections.
    * Memory based infection scanning has been improved to be able to detect products that are packed/compressed on disk but expose themselves in memory
    * Issues with large file scanning are resolved
