I'd like to see the scan logs from a long scan to see what might be happening.
The short scan took 45 min. The hard drive is 2TB which is more than 1/2 full.
Sorry but I don't have time to wait for a full scan to run.
I know the system is clean and that's just too much time to waist. Sorry.

I have only used MBAM as on demand and in all my time of using it, I have never had a FP from it. SAS 5 gave me two but they're sort of understandable because the file it detected is a hacked (legally) version of a game executable. The only thing it does is let you play the game without having to have the game CD in the drive but since the file is altered , it may be fair game for a malware detector to question it.

I found SAS 5.0 used more HDD space. But SAS did appear to have faster scans compared to 4.51.xxx.
The new GUI is a bit more flashy. You might think I'm a bit odd but I still prefer SpyBot S&D as an on-demand scanner.

Late to the party once again. :)

I as using SAS 4.x real-time however 4.52 if I recall correctly was really buggy.  So much so that I removed it.  Last night I downloaded and installed 5.x Beta.   Seems lighter on resources and so far no problems.
I just ran what SAS calls a "Critical Point Scan" on my two desktops

Desktop A
---------------------------
Memory Items Scanned 508
Registry Items Scanned 61,464
File Items Scanned 7,221
Scan Time 1:33

Desktop B
---------------------------
Memory Items Scanned 316
Registry Items Scanned 63,278
File Items Scanned 7,219
Scan Time :47 or 47 seconds 

Full System scans last night took about 20 minutes on both computers

By full scan do you mean, SAS Complete scan ?

If you mean the avast Full System scan then you can't really compare the two scans.

Just done an SAS Quick scan and that took 2min:20sec
The SAS Critical point scan seems to be very small 57sec


Whilst my last avast Quick scan was 1min:36sec.

Not sure which system you were scanning but either is considerably lower spec than my Core2Duo as I recall it being said that avast is optimised to take advantage of the Intel multi core chips (this was some time back, so would have been the Duo core chips).

So that would probably make a big difference.

However, this topic is after all about SAS.

The Latest version 5.0.1086 is very stable and I had no issues whatsoever with all of the previous builds too. :)

I haven't experienced any problems with it from the initial pre-release to this latest build.

Yes but when I tried SAS 5 it did a quick scan in 4:30, about a minute more than MBAM and really no faster than with the 4.xxx versions.

I just reinstalled it and updated to build 1086. It did a quick scan in 3:58 and, amazingly, this time even gave me the right click context menu item which NO previous version ever had.

I have no connection to SAS other than being a user.

If you install the Beta and have no license you can go to update the definitions.  After the definitions are downloaded and installed you get their sales pitch which for today at least is for a single license.

1  Pro-Version $9.95
2. Lifetime updates $9.95

Total cost $19.90

I don't know if any other SAS users noticed but at least for the Beta SAS is updating virus definitions two to three times a day which as I recall is more frequent than they used to update virus definitions.

This is strange. I had the right click context menu item when I installed SAS but, now it's gone again. I only have scan options for Avast and MBAM.
