Anti-virus problems anyone?

Since I installed the beta software I have encountered two problems.

First, I started getting BSOD crashes, and the crash dump told me that the problem was a file called SASKutil.sys

I tracked this down to SuperAntiSpyware, and once I had opened up msconfig and disabled the software in the startup list Windows 7 loaded without further problems.

Secondly, BitDefender 2009 is turned off, and cannot be turned on again - I repeatedly get the message that BitDefender services can't start.


What anti-spyware software are you running that is stable in Windows 7?

The only problems I've had are with Superantispyware and Sandboxie, both of which caused BSODs on trying to install them. Malwarebytes is running fine on the 64 bit version, on my main PC, as are Nod32 and Spywareblaster. Avira, free version, Malwarebytes and Spyware blaster are running smoothly on my laptop (32 bit version).

AVG 8 free, just took me a while to update as my mobile broadband doesn't seem to run as smoothly as in Vista/XP/Linux.

As for Anti Spyware, Spybot also installed and runs OK. It has also integrated with the Security Centre but the status is shown as 'snoozed'.
