SUPERAntiSpyware and Win98

After Ad Aware stopped support for Win98 I tried the free version of
SUPERAntiSpyware.

It was extremely slow but I'd start it up and go to bed.

Several months ago I bought a copy of SUPERAntiSpyware Pro. It seemed to
run faster so it was worth the $9.95.

Last week when I went to do a system scan it took forever to update then
it would launch. I did a complete uninstall and downloaded the latest
version. Same thing. I can't get it to update or launch.

I'm running NOD32 fulltime and Spybot on demand plus I have a NAT router.
My Win86 has been kept well tuned and pruned and works fine with
everything else.

Did SAS stop supporting Win98?

ROFL!!  If you need something to fill in your spare time, I have a lot
of painting and house repair stuff......and hey, you get free medical up
here (in case you are a klutzy carpenter, lol).

Hey! Why do you think they call them fingerNAILS? - yep - because of me
attempting carpentry.

no problems like that.
Scantime looks normal on my pc for all that has to be scanned.

stop running those two and try your SAS again.
Did you look in proces-explorer or something like that how much 'system
idle' you have left? I stopped using Spybot ( only offline )  a long time
ago.

Conclusion : SAS free runs still fine on this pc.

I also couldn't update to the latest prodict version of SAS Pro in Win98SE
by using the update button.
Both in Win98SE and Win2000Pro, the updates got much slower to install with
98SE being super slow.
I dl'd the latest ver of SAS Pro and clicked on it to install on Win98SE and
it asked if I wanted to uninstall the old version first.
I did and then rebooted and then installed the newest version and again
rebooted.
It still takes forever to update in Win98SE (perhaps 5min+) but it finally
did. (dual boot system)
The scanning is slower in my Win98SE also, when compared to my Win2000Pro.
Perhaps try the SAS forum (I think there's one) for futher info.
I had to do the same thing for Avast Free Home Edition in Win98SE as I would
get a 'not enough storage space to process this command' error.
It now works also.

PS:I had plenty of unused ram and HDD space available.
