SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner
How long has SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner been out?
Almost a week.
It has been out since 14 Jan 2010
So it doesn't install anything at all, not anywhere?
But suspicious though with the file name... SAS_782435F4.COM
Statement from near the bottom of their download page:
"Please note : The scanner is saved under a random filename so that malware infections won't block the scanner."
The last time I installed Prevx, the "Default" option during the installation was to create a random folder name for the Prevx Programs folder for the same reason given by SUPERAntiSpyware. During the Prevx installation the choice was a random folder name or the real folder name with the random folder name being recommended.
trying it now
2 detections so far maybe fp i'll check when finished scan
5 detections all fp's [other programs used for spyware]
deleted SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner as i don't need it
FYI - it is not quite "portable" at this point.
It left a bunch a references in the registry to it's drivers.
Lit up my event logs like a Christmas tree on reboot.
I downloaded just to try it out. Seemed to work as advertised. One thing is after download I checked for updates and the program updated. So always up to date may be a bit of a stretch although the update was just from today.
Started a scan and it crashed
Probably best to run SAS from UBCD4WIN on an infected system anyway.
i have never really got UBCD4win to work properly.
It doesn't install per se but it does leave a few bits and pieces beyond the typical MRU's.
Must admit, I'm very glad to see this tool! Thanks for the notice!
Great work on this release. Works well.
The latest definitions are packaged each time we do a release now So it always has the latest definitions
What FP's were detected, I would like to see the scan log.
I had some problems at first. Avira was giving a FP on some of the necessary files and I couldn't build a disc. Once that was sorted out I love it.
A scan with SAS from UBCD4WIN usually clears out a good deal of crud on an infected machine.
