Still a recommended product (except by the tracing cookies...).

Edited.

Didn't take them long to reach the daily download limit, bit of a pain when you are an  SAS Pro user.

I downloaded it early. I gave up on SAS years ago. I only use MBAM and HMP. HMP I use only portable. SAS scans where always too long and it could not find what MBAM found or HMP. Now there is a nice GUI and scan speeds have improved a million times faster the previous version. Just remember to disable the "start with Windows" and "show icon in system tray". Also for 64 bit users set the sascore service to demand start. Other then that its a great free on demand scanner. Hopefully the detection rate will increase.

Not following you... What do you mean with "daily download limit"?

Still can't understand why an on demand scanning should launch drivers and services... :P

1. Since this is a limited download, there is actually a download limit, I checked on their forums when I couldn't download it.

I have however just been back and the download link is active, so I have downloaded it.

2. Whilst I have the Pro version which as a resident will have the SAS service running. For the free on-demand version, when you set it up if you elect to have SAS in the explorer menu then it presumably has the service running to be able to run the scan.

The service is not really needed. I hate adding extra crap to my pc so I set it to on demand.

I'm a little confused as to why you would make a separate post for a program that you apparently don't think much of.
If I don't like a program, I don't try to pass it on to others.

LOL Bob..................Obviously you did not take the time to read what I wrote. I clearly stated I gave up on SAS years ago but now I am trying version 5.0. Does it matter if I gave up on it completely? I am posting info to the members of this forum thank you very much.

Quick scan times:

MBAM = 2:24
SAS = 2:14

Well there doesn't seem to be a direct comparison on what is being scanned, for the two Quick scans. MBAM talks of objects and SAS gives a breakdown of what is scanned, so I don't know how an object is measured. Plus there are differences in the scan settings for both programs.

For me in the past MBAM was always quicker than SAS by some margin (couple of minutes) but now they are closer with SAS slightly quicker, but not something that you can directly compare.

MBAM
Scan type: Quick scan
Objects scanned: 152118
Time elapsed: 2 minute(s), 59 second(s)

SAS
Scan type       : Quick Scan
Total Scan Time : 00:02:24
Memory items scanned      : 641
Memory threats detected   : 0
Registry items scanned    : 31519
Registry threats detected : 0
File items scanned        : 6175
File threats detected     : 0

As you can see it isn't something that can easily be compared, I just checked the SAS Critical Point scan almost the same (half the files) to the quick scan but only 56 seconds.

Memory items scanned      : 643
Memory threats detected   : 0
Registry items scanned    : 31519
Registry threats detected : 0
File items scanned        : 3601
File threats detected     : 0

Wasnt getting that technical. LOL. I was merely comparing quick scans. SAS 4 use to take about 10 minutes for a quick scan. Now version 5 is less then 3 minutes.
