I have just installed Superantispyware (as recommended by BleepingComputer). I scanned and found no problems, but what I don't understand is why is it memory resident? When you right-click the system-tray icon and select 'enable realtime protection', you are told that this is only available in the Professional version. I know you can turn it off at startup, (except it still leaves an entry in your HiJackThis log 'O20 winlogon'), but what puzzles me is what benefits do you get by leaving it memory resident?

SUPERAntiSpyware is resident so that you have instant access to the scanning, detection and removal features. You uncheck the "Start with Windows" option in the General and Start up Preferences if you do not wish SUPERAntiSpyware to start when your computer starts and use it as an on-demand scanner only.
The WinLogon Handler (O20) SASWINLO.DLL is used to scan the system at startup and remove difficult to remove spyware infections.
