    Sometimes when I scan a pc with Superantispyware it will say that it needs to restart the pc to finish cleaning it. When I restart the pc Superantispyware (free version) doesn't seem to run or finish cleaning the pc. Maybe it is running in the background & I just don't notice it. Do you need the Pro version for it to run when you restart your pc to finish cleaning it or should the free version do this also?

    SAS free or Pro will ask for a reboot inorder to complete a clean if 1 or more files are held open(In use).

    The file(s) are deleted on rebooting when they are not in use so effectively completing the clean up routine.

    Not sure if this is relevant to your case, but I found that if I had files to be cleaned in an admin area, and I was logged in as UAC limited user, it would not delete the files in the admin area on re-start. Ie exactly the same problems would keep coming up on subsequent scans as limited user (hence I knew it had not deleted them the previous time).

    The way round it, for me, was to run the scan as administrator. Then everything got cleaned.

    Regards

    SUPERAntiSpyware's kernel drivers take care of the clean up on the boot, so the system should be cleaned up after the boot sequence is complete.
