  6. Tip of the Day Many people think that 'formatting' a hard drive will wipe out all the data so it cannot be recovered
    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from www.killdisk.com) to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

    Support.com has just aquired Superantispyware for $8.5 Million.You can read the anouncement Here

    I really don't know what to think of this. I kind of liked that Superantispyware was a small company of talented people. On the other hand maybe this could lead to Superantispyware becoming a much greater product, who knows.

    cheers

    I've never even heard of Support.com, and I've noticed that Superantispyware has lost its touch. Maybe this will make Superantispyware a better product.

    The Superantispyware team will continue to develop their product, which now belongs to support.com. I never heard of this company so I guess we will have to wait and see what happens but I'm not too optimistic about this acquisitions.

    i see nothing good coming out of this. I to have never heard of support.com also W.O.T gives it a bad rating. http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/www.support.com

    SAS has been doomed from the start. I used to keep it around strictly for Vundo. I imagine that there is nothing that SAS can do that MBAM cannot do.

    They are a Micro$oft certified partner... :rolleyes:

    That says more to me than any community rating system. Too many people have no idea what they're actually rating with WOT. Notice that WOT is the odd one out on URLVoid? support.com support | URLVoid.com

    Uniblue (avira is criticised for recommending their "rubbishy" products) is also a M$ Gold Certified Partner. Support.com products on Cnet don't get good reviews. (a post on wilders)

    Avira's marketing of crummy products is one thing, but if they gradually allow their AV product to mimic the inferior tools that they are beginning to promote, I will drop them like a hot rock.

    I believe (might be wrong) MBAM don't go after cookies like SAS does.
    Myself, I don't worry about cookies since I am always sandboxed and
    they are gone every time I close my browser but most of the time that
    I have run SAS on friends and relatives computers, SAS finds tons of
    cookies. If you dont use Sandboxie and SAS finds cookies, flash stuff
    when you run it, then maybe, you still need it.

    I don't have SAS installed now, usually I install (virtualized) it when a
    new version is out, run it once and then its gone from my system. Last
    time I ran it was when version5 beta came out, it felt just fine.

    I don't know if this change is going to be good but I hope it is.
