am i the only one who likes the desk top icon It looks great its like saying NO SPIES haha i love it
It gets the point across.
Standardization. The current icon is okay and should be kept. I don't see anything wrong with it.
I also agree that the program icon should have a better look...
If there is nothing left for me to do with this machine I would place the icon on my desktop and become a desktop voyeur. After that I will complain (or not) if I like the SAS icon or not.
For the time being however I am happy with SAS.
I also like the SAS icon. I think that little bug is quite cute. The SAB icon is another matter entirely. Cheap, boring, uninspiring. I mean come on! A red circle with a white X inside. That really does need addressing.
Pre-release version 3.3 working fine here with Sandboxie, Kav and Comodo firewall.
Scan speed has reduced around 30% on my machine.
I totally agree that all that matters is the performance but in my opinion a little tweak to the desktop icon( not the tray icon) and GUI will not hurt as others agree with it.
Anyway it,s ur decision!
But I understand performance is more important.
A good-looking GUI is the work of creativity. Why not make the next version's GUI have a Vista-like look and feel? And anyway, Vista is coming out pretty soon, Superantispyware should make the newer version(s) compatible with it too.
To me, that seems to be the best design change which can be made at this period of time. What I suggest is that release version 3.3 with no GUI changes first, focus more on the performance and detection engine, then based on users' opinion, gather more feedback and if needed, release a updated GUI together with the daily definition updates.
Seems positive to me.
Do you mean the scan duration was reduced by 30%? If the scanning speed (such as bits/sec) dropped, doesn't that mean the overall time to scan would be increased (such as a drop in bandwidth speed which will make you wait longer for a download to complete)?
The time it takes to scan a system has been REDUCED/SHORTENED by 30%-40% - if a system used to take 20 minutes to scan, it would now only take 12-14 minutes to scan.
Faster and better, not a bad combo if you ask me.
Yep I meant scanning is 30% faster.
As I run a thinned out XP pro it has dropped from roughly 3 mins to 2.
Been reading through this thread and really can't believe the comments on the icon. Kind of like having a new house and complaining about the door nob!
Nobody even said it was a big deal...you're the one who's acting like we said it was.
To clear it up, my comment wasn't referring to the bug icon, it was referring to the spy/red circle desktop icon. I just think it looks cheap, and my opinion stands.
Just wonder if i create/design 1 new SUPERAntiSpy logo, will that earn me a lifetime license or not? LOL
You are welcome to submit your ideas - we have had minimal complaints about the icon...but I am always open to new ideas.
This is going off the subject matter a bit, but with regards to icons, I was considering to add the SafeZone firewall program to a PC which has Antivir installed. Both programs use an umbrella as an icon on the system tray so having both would add two umbrellas which could make things confusing.
How about this icon, i make for SUPERAntiSpyware.
at least let the "minimal complaints" user able to change to alternate icon
Nick, a smaller detail, but could you change so that a small popup shows up when you take the mouse cursor over the icon in systray, showing the date of the latest update, instead of core/trace version or nothing. It´s easier for the end-user to check if they have the latest signatur version by just pointing to the icon (as the icon of KAV, AVG AntiSpyware e t c.)
It's on the wish/feature list. The 3.3 version is feature "frozen" now as it is going to be released shortly and if we were to add any additional items we would have to re-test and delay the release.
