I have been told to download this and run/use on my XP system even though I am only using XP when absolutely necessary.  I already have it in my "Program files" but don't know how or which files to open up.  Or how to open or run it from the "Run" dialogue box.  Can someone tell me how to do this.  Perhaps I just need to re-download, I don't know.  Thanks, pcpunk.

 

Do I type superantispyware.exe into the "Run" box?

Go to your program files/SuperAntiSpyware.

 

Look for entry SUPERAntiSpyware  APPLICATION. Application will be to the right of the entry. 

 

The entry is what you need to click to open SAS.

 

You can also RIGHT click on the entry, choose Send to/Desktop to put a shortcut on the desktop.

SUPERAntiSpyware Free does not provide real-time protection, auto-Scanning, auto-updates or scheduled scanning so there is no need for it to run at startup, waste system resources and possibly cause conflicts with other security software. However, when installing SUPERAntiSpyware it installs to run at each start-up automatically. I recommend to disable its' startup and use it as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner. If you right-click on the tray icon, select System Tools & Program Settings to open Control Panel and click Preferences...there is an option to uncheck "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" under the General and Startup tab.

Alternatively, launch SUPERAntiSpyware to open the Main Menu, select System Tools & Program Settings and select Preferences under SUPERAntiSpyware Control Panel...then uncheck "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" under the General and Startup tab.

O wow thanks, I will look into that soon if not today.  Right now I am looking into Autoruns and trying to interpret all the entries.  I hijacked a post here if you are interested in helping out:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/538188/using-autoruns-file-not-found/

 

I don't see SUPERAntiSpyware in the startup list in Autoruns.  Yes, I was told to just use it as a run when needed scanner, thanks.

 

What is a "tray icon" the desktop icon? and I don't follow most of those instructions well at all.  But I would love to disable it upon startup.

 

I went to Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs and don't see it there so could not do anything.

If you're going to keep Autoruns (which I recommend), be careful using it and be sure to read:
