    This was a bugfix release, so no visible changes for the user, except the new banner customization. (Bye bye snow).


    F-Secure Freedome provides VPN support and we have no plans to integrate it to SAFE (fs protection) at the moment.

    I was thinking about Avast which gives a link to activate its VPN (not free)

    Can I ask about some changes with current TP?




    If yes, so:


    --> Previously with clean installation (or related things) DNS Checker trigger notification "from first".

    With current TP... DNS Checker probably (?) will trigger notification just after re-connection or with next start of fshoster (fs protection)?

    Probably this is OK, but should it be like that?


    --> With current TP main safe-status logo under Main UI with small re-designed for "checker-scan-protection-picture-circle-action":  I get (?! or maybe it was with previous TPs too) that maybe this thing do not work with Windows Vista?
    Such as with one of system there was just safe-picture, but circle-action missing.

    Does it mean.. that feature support just modern systems (and not support Windows Vista) or there other requirements. Or there was something wrong? There - I do not mean... feature (from current TP), when circle-stopping-and-missing when we start scan by Scan Wizard.


    If no, so sorry for my ask.


    --Fresh banner nice, but frozen was perfect too-- :)

    Hi @Ukko


    DNS checker should work like before - it should show flyer soon after installation is complete. Please create a bug report and attach fsdiag as always.


    The extra animation on the main UI uses too much CPU on old systems or virtual machines. It's disabled on those systems.

    Thanks for response.


    Interesting... that today (with my re-try) DNS Checker work like before. After clean installation... with first seconds/minute after UI opened....  DNS Checker created notification.


    Basically I have fsdiag from yesterday situations.... "delay" with notification was about different installations (so it looks like stable) and I thought that it will be repeat again... but today all comes as before.


    I will try to think about it more and will create maybe report with previous fsdiags, when situations happened.


    Thanks again.

    Maybe as additional for my previous reply (and report) under spoiler:



    Today I get same situation (clean installation and DNS Checker did not create notification after installation).

    But today... there was (?!) maybe related point (not sure... maybe this is same with previous situations too).


    When clean installation goes to step, where we have main UI and two modules after list of updates (NIF and ORSP).


    So... F-Secure NIF after installation was with temporary stuck for "not installed"-status (ORSP installed normally). In fact -- this is time to time happened.


    Such as:


    ""Installation of 'F-Secure Network Interception Framework Update 2016-03-21_01' : Not done, will retry""


    Changed to "installed"-status just when all next modules is downloaded. Installed briefly around this time.


    ""Installation of 'F-Secure Network Interception Framework Update 2016-03-21_01' : Success""


    Three/four minutes after downloaded NIF (and three minutes after "re-try" string).


    Maybe this is can be a reason for missing notification. But after this.. hour/hours (? will see - I did not restart system) DNS Checker do not create notification. I think this is will be just with restart/relaunch.


    Sorry for reply.






    DNS Checker created notification about Network is safe.. after three hours (from installation-time).

    During this time (I also) tried to re-swith from Ethernet to Wi-Fi connection (and back) - notification about this changes was missing. But tries was briefly.


    Later (with next try): DNS Checker did not create notification after installation anyway (F-Secure NIF installed from first with current try). But maybe there something else (or my network connection was with usage).
