SUPERAntiSpyware 3.5 Pre-Release is now available
thanks for the infomation.
Great, I'm impressed with superantispyware.com and SAS.
nice product indeed. Thanks for the info.
Any info about scanning time reductions?
Is running very well here...
This is a must have for me...
The major (40% reduction) in scanning time happened on version 3.3. It will be difficult to reduce the scanning time as drastically from now on, as if the scanner is not actually scanning most of the system, lots of spyware will be missed. It is no longer acceptable (in my opinion and based upon our research of spyware in our lab) to simply "look at known locations" on the computer for spyware - too much is missed that way. Many of the current scanners do that, and therefor will often miss many items that appear in different locations and may not be "active" when the scan is done.
Nick: Are you willing to make any projections on a 3.5 final build timetable?
Our pre-releases are always well tested by our internal test team and a close set of external testers before being released as a "pre-release". So far there have been no issues that would stop us from shipping very shortly.
I know that
SAS is fast in my systems, but slow on dated systems. Because of your wide OS support (well done ), I install SAS free to friends/customers who have quite old machines (Win 98SE/Win 2K, 1 GHz processor, 128/256 MB of RAM) and I schedule weekly scans on them. They complain a lot about scanning times (40/60 min. in Quick Scan mode).
Keep up the fine work
Damn fine program!It even found two spywares that the last ver. of your program failed to find.Great work and keep it up.
Thank you so much for trying it out If you ever find samples/items we don't detect, simply e-mail them to samples AT superantispyware.com and they will be reviewed and added to our database!
Will do and have a great day.
Will the update/upgrade be provided, after the beta is done, with the program update as the last one?
If I understand Jerry correctly I have same question.
I am seriously looking at replacing Spybot on "my pc" with this program and would just wait if one can not just update to new version without all that unistall reinstall work. When it is ready for release as he has stated.
SWEET a new version how long ago was the last one released?
What else can i add to the compliments and thanks already expressed, except keep up the very exciting effort with this and all the best.
This came on the scene rather quickly not so long ago now and equally quickly has raced to the head of the pack with even long time leaders, and easily surpassed many, so much is to be said in admiration for your ideas and work.
Yes, we always provide the update after the pre-release period is completed. Everyone may not get the update all at once, as we dole them out over a period of time as not to flood our server farm.
Last release was 3.4.1000 on 12/07/2006, just a little over a month ago.
Thank you so much for the very nice compliment - we work hard to provide a quality product and I am glad it is appreciated by our users!
The pre-release versions need to be installed and uninstalled as we do not update the primary update server with the pre-release in case there are changes and updates. All official updates can be installed/updated directly from within the product without the need to uninstall and re-install. You may be prompted to reboot if a kernel drive or winlogon component needs to be updated.
The update servers dole out the updates after the pre-release becomes a public release. All users may not get the updates at the same time as we have to be careful not to flood our servers
I know that is a rather minor thing to uninstall/reinstall, but it is greatly appreciated by me since I had just installed your program on a clean installation of Windows
Keep up the great work!
i noted with version 3.4...that the free version use to cause some slow start-up for windows...is still there?
SAS is really the STANDARD for AS software. This up grade is
The download page is reporting version 3.4 now. Has the pre-release run out?
Darn, maybe got here too late.
