Poor threat protection to poor support options

I mean, I thought you would still be using proper support ticketing by emails and here we are enclosing to 'Community' stupidity.

No wonder we don't get nothing out of this.

Also, who uses protection without option to scan folder or right click to scan. I don't see it, it's pretty useless protection if you ask me,

This is by far prone for disliking to have only 'community' based inquiry when chat is not up and when you what you looking for is not there, at all. It like Firefox based community, where everyone hates to be publicized to all.

That is not good at all, and who does that? I guess only stupid people in hierarchy, this is definitely failed GPDR regulations, when I didn't asked to be exposed that much to the community.

    On Windows 11, before, it didn't show on 'Show more options'.

    Right then, I uninstalled it and installed it again.

    Windows 11 doesn't show on new right click 'Scan' option.

    Then after the reinstall on 'Show more options' it is now visible.
