    Yet another in a long series of frequent updates. Conclusion: this app is assiduously maintained. As far as I recall, the mostly negative comments about this app, here at Wilders, are based mainly on subjective opinions rather than actual tests against a base of nasties.

    Does anyone know of recent lab tests of this app? Alternatively, does anyone have a fact-based opinion to offer?

    EASTER does of course. But it is rather very dated as in the past on XP, and in fact if I still had XP, this one would be resting inside on-demand mode but would get plenty of actions. Aside from the tracking cookie mentions that are always raised when SAS is topic for discussion these days, and that may be. But, SAS has located items even the best AV's passed over before. Doesn't matter to me if it's leftover .DAT-.TEMP files or not, at least SAS pinpointed even those left behind after a scan and they didn't need to be taking up a single sector of a good disk if you ask me. That was a big Positive in this camp.

    Sorry @bellgamin. Short of previous satisfaction-results or even as a second opinion scanner today, I not used SAS in a long time but it did serve a useful purpose for some time before Nick let it go other places. Short of that there's nothing of any use to you that can be offered up as to how well or not it is on today's Windows machines.

    But I would never outright dismiss or discount the progress in what SAS can or might have become, or may become again.

    I'm not aware of any recent tests. I can only talk based on experience. When cleaning infections from customers computers, I stopped using SAS, because alternatives such as Malwarebytes, Zemana and ADWCleaner, were very good at detecting malware and adware, whereas SAS would rarely find anything (other than tracking cookies). Because of this, it was a waste of time even running it.

    Also, when I use it on my own computers, it rarely finds anything.

    When SAS was first released, it had excellent detection rates, but sadly, that has not been the case for years now.

    I have 2 lifetime licenses. Stopped using it years ago. The last time I tried my activation was locked out. Didn't want to go to the bother of contacting them. Again.

    My lifetime license has been collecting dust for years now. No sure, and don't care, if it's still active or not.

    I've continued to use the free version for several years now as an on-demand scanner to supplement my AV and MBAM. As has already been mentioned...it mainly tends to detect cookies.

    Did have one occasion about 4 years ago when it detected a Trojan which managed to delete the ipsec.sys file on my computer, necessitating a repair shop visit.

    I've got 4 Lifetime Licenses (real-time) that haven't used for many years due to the false positive that SAS put out and screwed up many computers, including one of mine. SAS did nothing to help people fix their computer. I had to reformat my computer. I do use the free version sometimes for cleaning cookies, that's about all SAS is good for. Paid version is not worth it today.

    So out dated, why is this on a security forum?
