    SuperAntiSpyware has been running a 'quick scan' for TWO hours but has
    only scanned 388 'memory items'. No registry items have been scanned
    and no file items either. It takes a couple of minutes to scan each

    Do I need to delete it and reinstall SAS?

    Did you try rebooting? If that doesn't help, I would uninstall SAS and
    rei-nstall it. Have a fresh copy of SAS ready.
    If you have the same problem, post back.
    PS: Sounds like version 5 is getting close to coming out.
    PPS: Dl, install, update and run the free version of MBAM to see if there is
    a problem that is causing SAS to run so slow.

    You might try running the chkdsk utility to see if you have trouble
    with your hard disk drive.

  4. Clear all your temp items with ccleaner or something similar.
    then try again.
    check taskmgr if you're running @ high CPU.
    Also, another anti-virus program might be scanning each item that SAS
    tries to scan so sometimes it doubles the scan time.
