As I said, I never saw that. I would uninstall it (use REVO). Maybe some setting has made itself permanent due to an error an it is just repeating that. Then, if you still want it, you can try a new clean install. I have had a similar situation once with Norton IS. Same strange story for which nobody had an explanation. A reinstall fixed that.

You should check what specific files it says are infected and check online if those files are malware related.

it didn't give me a specific file, just a huge list. the scan moved to fast to see where it was coming from. but i know if i had winantivirus2007 or anything that was on the list i'd know it. actually i just did another clean restore and put my stuff together. whs, that's what i did, i just reinstalled it from the site and nothing showed up. now i'm set, no more complaining, lol
jd the 1072 files were things like winantivirus2007, drivecleaner, cleansweep, casino.com, etc., things that would definitely be obvious if they were running. it had to have been something in superantispyware

Oz, Good, I never considered it as "complaining". It was an interesting case and we learned something. So it was worth it.
