Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

A SUPER-Grand Day For… (drum roll please)

I want to start this out by saying to you, Dear Reader, that this special day would not be happening if it were not for my high regard this product and the people responsible for it. When I was asked to be involved, I did not hesitate to agree.
(Please see, People Make The Difference and I Answer A Common Question.)

SUPERAntiSpyware is a program for combating spyware and Internet threats. It is an anti-malware tool that I use on the job; on my own machines; recommend to clients; and install on the PC’s of my friends and family. I’ll tell you why — it’s simple and it’s effective. Since it “plays well” with most other security programs, SAS makes a great additional layer of protection to your existing antivirus/security solution.

A SUPER-Special Software License Giveaway

To help celebrate SUPERAntiSpyware’s recent inclusion in VirusTotal’s premier file analyzing service, the good folks there at SUPERAntiSpyware (known in the biz as “SAS”) generously donated 10 Professional Edition licenses to me – “lifetime” licenses no less – to award to my readers.

I did say “SUPER-Special”…
All entrants were placed into Random.org’s “list randomizer”, and the top result was winner of the Grand Prize: a 5-pack of SUPERAntiSpyware Pro. (I will mention this winner last.. naturally!)

I then removed the Grand Prize winner from the list, and “re-shook the hat”, so to speak. The top 5 names will each receive a single-use Lifetime license (retail $39.90). Those 5 lucky winners are

A SUPER-Special Software License Giveaway (My Last?)

Some things you just can’t predict. I thought I was through with contests, and now, ‘lo and behold!, I have a Grand Prize Contest, and I am pleased as punch to run it. Today’s Grand Prize retails for $200, and features software I have endorsed from Day One.

SUPERAntiSpyware is a program for combating spyware and Internet threats.

(So those of you already running the free edition should still enter.. IMHO.)

So I am announcing my latest software license giveaway contest.

I did say “SUPER-Special… This week my Giveaway is going to be a little different, Folks, and I am actually running two contests — but you (still) only enter one time (the usual rules apply!). Keep reading…

¹ All entrants will be placed into Random.org’s “list randomizer”, and the top result will be the winner of the Grand Prize: a 5-pack of SUPERAntiSpyware Pro.
I will then remove the Grand Prize winner from the list, and “re-shake the hat”, so to speak, and then, from the new result, the top 5 names will each receive a single-use Lifetime license (retail $39.90).
[Note: If for some reason you do not want to be entered in the Grand Prize drawing, please indicate “1 license only” in your comment. I will mod the lists accordingly.]

How to enter: US and Canada residents may simply click on “comment” (below) and enter a name and valid e-mail in the form (so we can send you the key {or keys}). Actually commenting is optional. And, I shouldn’t have to say this but, multiple entries in this contest will result in disqualification. The drawing will conclude at midnight (Pacific) on Thursday, July 29th, so act now. The six winners will be announced Friday.

For those who would simply like to learn more about this great security program, the SAS website is here. To read what I have said about SAS:

I also want to say that I admire the people behind SAS, and they get a big tip of my geek hat. They are hard working and generous and they know their stuff. Their motto is “Remove ALL the Spyware, NOT just the easy ones” and I like that attitude!

Why not get a jump on the game and download a trial version of SUPERAntiSpyware Professional today.. you just might get an “activation” as a winner. And if not, you can either purchase (if you do, I advise getting the lifetime upgrade) or it will revert to the free version. Check it out here. SAS is one of those few programs I believe the “for pay” version is well worth it.

I sincerely thank the good folks at SUPERAntiSpyware for making this exciting giveaway possible.

SUPERAntiSpyware Announces Educational License Special

SUPERAntiSpyware Announces Educational License Special

SUPERAntiSpyware.com helps schools during difficult  economic times with FREE lifetime updates on educational licenses in addition to discounted student versions.

EUGENE, OR (May 6, 2010) –image001
SUPERAntiSpyware.com, a Pacific Northwest developer of state-of-the-art security software, has announced a special offer for educational institutions. From now through August 1, 2010, all SUPERAntiSpyware multi-user licenses sold to educational clients will be upgraded to a lifetime subscription with no renewal fees at no additional charge.

Economic hardship and budget cuts are an everyday reality for school systems at all levels,” said Nick Skrepetos, founder of SUPERAntiSpyware.com. “We highly value the role that education plays in communities worldwide, and we want to support schools in their efforts to provide quality education while balancing their tight and shrinking budgets. Managing high-priced software renewal fees is simply not practical for schools in today’s economic climate. We want to help.”

Skrepetos continued, “Not only are managing expensive license and renewal fees challenging for schools, but the danger of spyware infections themselves pose a multi-million dollar threat to our educational system. Without proper protection, schools are at risk of computer infections that can not only rob them of valuable classroom and instructional time, but may also require them to incur costly repair bills.”

Additionally, SUPERAntiSpyware will include one Technician’s License for its new portable scanner with each educational license at no additional cost. The portable scanner harnesses the same powerful anti-spyware engine as the Professional Edition of SUPERAntiSpyware and references a spyware definition database that is updated at least once per day. SUPERAntiSpyware Portable can be downloaded from http://www.superantispyware.com/portable.

For more information or to take part in the educational license promotion, contact sales@superantispyware.com.

SUPERAntiSpyware, in use by nearly 30 million users worldwide, is an innovative product that protects users from Spyware, Malware, Adware, Trojans, Rootkits, Homepage Hi-Jackers, Worms, Dialers and Parasites. SUPERAntiSpyware focuses on detecting hard to remove spyware which other products often miss, or are unable to safely detect and remove.

The SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, a 100% free product, will detect and remove potentially harmful software from a user’s computer. In addition, the Professional version provides real-time protection against the installation of new threats, scheduled scanning and removal of threats as well as additional protective features not available in the free edition. SUPERAntiSpyware Free and Professional Editions will detect and remove the latest rogue/fake anti-spyware products as well as over 1,500,000 other harmful application components. SUPERAntiSpyware definitions are updated daily to protect users against the latest zero-day threats.

SUPERAntiSpyware is used by computer technicians worldwide to clean end user systems at companies such as Dell, HP, and AT&T. SUPERAntiSpyware is also recommended on popular security forums such as MajorGeeks.com, Wilders Security and thousands more. SUPERAntiSpyware Professional is priced at $29.95 for the general public and includes updates for one year. SUPERAntiSpyware is available for immediate download from www.superantispyware.com.
SUPERAntiSpyware is supported by Windows 2000, XP Home/Pro, Media Center, Server 2003, Server 2008, Vista and Windows 7.
