I have the free version of this on my PC. Have not run a scan in a while, decided to run a full scan tonight, did a check on database updates first and it said definitions were up to date, as of DECEMBER! Could this be right? Seems like there should have been a more recent database update by them?

Hello Junior2007:

They do update their database many times per day. You would probably do well to clean uninstall/reinstall even if your executable's file version is 5.7.0.1008/1018. SAS is still good at finding cookies.

 

You might recall that SAS has its own uninstaller assistants if your interested. http://www.superantispyware.com/prerelease.html

Please let us know how it goes. :)

All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.

The link for manually downloading updates is here. One this page will also be able to confirm the date and database version.
