    Please educate me:

    Where would this extra information in settings be?

    Where would I seet this Run Support tool?

    Where is the Support View in Settings

    If this is my Top banner


    What would the uncut Top banner look like?

    All these fixes you asked about are refering to the work-in-progress settings dialog, which is not yet enabled. It was accessible at 17.6 beta 3 release but now removed from beta 6.

    Thanks... but the feeling that I overlooked something. :)

    What is background of congratulations? Except for the recently 'liked' reply. But if so - these points came to me too close (therefore, if I had not noticed them, I would have crashed into them).

  • yeoldfartyeoldfart Posts: 506

    You just point out things I did not come into and I keep on wondering why it is so, do i just overlook it or is it due to different software environment ?

  • UkkoUkko Posts: 2,960
    or is it due to different software environment ?

    I think that, most likely (and most often), it is.

    But, perhaps, with the addition of "hardware difference"; And (more often, maybe) it is all about points that are not critical / or are random or even unrepeatable further.

    I had a very funny experience upgrading to beta 7.

    FS Protection was still beta 6. And I decided to check some things with AMTSO security checks.

    So, I decided to start from a drive-by check.

    I open "drive-by" check on a fresh tab and when I expected to receive a notification about malicious item... on right this timeframe I received notification from Windows Security Center instead. With subject that security software (AV) is disabled. And... found disappeared fs protection tray logo. First feelings "that it is too strange to be crash" (but to suspect upgrade state right with the time when I decided to check / download "a drive-by" was also too fancy). Some seconds and.. yes.. it is upgrade. :)

    Release 17.6 beta 7 (4.10.2187):

    Fixed issues:

    • Removed "#Show details..." from reboot dialog (PBL-4875)
  • Like this updates... but have new problems

  • SimonSimon Posts: 2,583

    I don't know how long it's been there, but I notice we now have some 'stats' at the bottom of the main UI.  This is nice, but mine says that Deepguard has verified 4647 applications.  I don't think there's anywhere near that many applications on my machine, so where does this figure come from?

    Based on description (Help symbol (?) use): it is about all launched processes (probably, "state" is not limited to "application" term. and one application may trigger a lot of processes, most likely).

    Then, each time counter is increased. Launched processes are not cached/stored and each next try is doubled to statistics (for example, "browser" launch; each launch - "browser" should be verified).

    I think that your verified count is OK. My own (after "Statistics" back) is 26741 for last month and 9886 for last week.


    Although, previously these were "broken" counts. And I am not sure about its current design (it was listed as fixed trouble) - because more good to check it with clean installation.

    In addition, "Real-time scanned items" and "DeepGuard verified" counts are close to each other.


    What is more tricky for me - it is "Downloads". Sounds that unexpectedly huge. My count is "443" for last month and "194" for last week. Description for count with information that any background updates are counted too. But if so - maybe it is too small counts. If not - too large (I think that I did not download so much files).

    And statistics for websites are pinned to supported browsers (and enabled extension). Because of HTTPS. Probably.

    Should this not be continued in a new thread FS Protection PC 17.7 releases

    I got mine on Tuesday

    Since then I have got two notifications to turn Virus protection on. Why might that be?


    The particular installation is on a PC which I use mainly to look at Elisa Viihde, do banking, watch a webinar once a week and download software update intallation files manually. Most of the appications are portable some data recovery applications are properly installed so I get the following stats

    882 web sites verified
    9 banking seesions secured
    18 Downloads scanned for threats

    80837 Files checked by real-time sanner
    93256 Applications verfied by Deepguard


    What time frame might that be?

    The last two seem kinda high compared to the others which could be for this week.

    Kinda curious that more applications were verified than files checked. Are they mutually exclusive?


    Again in beta 7 the banking protections does not always turn off after I close the tabe where is was activated, but leaving Nordea it does most of the time.

    Real-time scanning has a caching mechanism to avoid rescanning unchanged files over and over. Because of this the DeepGuard counter can be larger than the real-time scanning counter. Both counters can be so large because they are incremented per each scan or check. If you launch the same executable twice, DeepGuard will check it twice, and will increment the counter by two. Windows has lots of processes that get run automatically (services etc) and they all contribute to the counters.


    The user interface should show the date since which the counters have been tracked ("Data available since").

    Thanks for the quick response and education. That makes sense.

    Please educate me some more: Where do I see the date

    I guess it kind of makes sense now.  I never thought to click on the number!

  • Version 17.6 beta 7 - downloaded and installed within 2 mins. Really impressed with the install speed. No reboot was needed. Installed on the latest W10 - 20H1 build.
    No issues so far.
