This is like rehabilitating a criminal.

I agree with Lusher,( not sure about the last bit ) I saw a post somewhere from the developer Nick Skrepetos,strenuously denying Superantispyware ever being on any rogue list.Again I agree all new programs come under suspicion.And while SAS is indeed a brilliant program,Its GUI alone makes it look a tad cheap and possibly dodgy,to anyone who doubted it.

SAS detected some missed samples by avast.
I think it's a good second-opinion and cleaning tool.

SAS detected 5 false positives on my computer (-> XP Update Files).

I guess there is something about all programs. I guess its up to each individual.

He is absolutely right.

I have no reservations using SAS Pro. It's a great program...

So far I had been "anxious" about installing the Web Crawler Toolbar with the latest edition of ST but I have it on since 21 days or so and so far everything is OK (identity theft, information stolen). It's another tool in ST. :D

So far, I runned HijackThis and was surprised it found a Crawler toolbar component a "parasite variant". I then checked it on Virus Total. The result is there

The suspect file is ctbr.dll and after all I'm uninstalling this toolbar. So far, I'm not using it after all. ???

Make an empty txt file and Prevx1 will mark it as suspicious! :P
Seems a false positive. Not any toolbar is bad. Although, I don't think it's necessary. I did not install it in my system. It's a bloatware in my opinion.

Has anyone got any opinions on the new version (V4) and do you suggest upgrading asap or wait for a while?

Tech will it update over the previous version (via search for program updates) and is it compatible with Avast and Comodo Firewall V2.4?
