Note: Releases 177 and 178 were skipped. Previous beta release was 176.
This release contains following applications that combined make the FS Protection PC product:
Just had this. A big upgrade! Restart required, but that seems pretty regular on my machine.
Anti-Virus took a while to update - about 10 minutes - but this was hopefully due to the new / changed functions, and will be quicker in future.
New features look good - but there's getting less to tinker with, meaning less to report as a beta tester (unless, of course, something goes wrong).
Would still like to see a darker theme - even if just the background of the UI.
One thing to note - my Internet connection seems to have slowed down this morning. Quite possibly nothing to do with FSP, but thought it worth mentioning, in case others are experiencing the same. Anything to do with Internet traffic scanning, perhaps?
Thanks for release. Too much interesting to get this!
With brief look (just installed recently) comes just with two small UI troubles.
All other dreams based on another reply https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Home-Security/no-news/m-p/89394/highlight/true#M3203 (before getting update), which looks like related with changes in fact;
Just as F-Secure Ultralight with not-full screen UI mode. :)
Thanks for release else one time!
Many of things looks like great (except all other of them)!
/// added later:
Looks like that for situation, when application was blocked by user under the prompt (unknown application tried to do network connection), this "decision" do not saved after upgrade (and if it was allowed) - probably because this feature just totally dropped (not really noted under the release-notes; because I thought that "warn about suspicious action" and "unknown application tried to do network connection" was two different features);
Not really understand point how FS Protection handle zipped/archives with fresh design (under the manual/context scan at least).
In somewhat reason (based on my experience) zipped/archive (or some type of them) file will be scanned (and if malicious can be - so - detected) just with direct scan for this file or (this file and other files) from related folder.
But if do scan the folder, folders or drive, which contain this zipped/archive file - scanning process do not detect (or scan - based on UI / information of number-scanned files) them.
// but not.... picture-files too (as zipped/archives).
Yes, probably based on point about drop the "advanced feature scanning"-option.
Just a little be strange works about (like strange different points - when current design work);
At least there have good points. If previously full scan can take with my system about hour or three hours;
With fresh design full scan is five minutes or thirty minutes. But with missing any detections (which can be under the some folders based on previous replies).
"DeepGuard configuration options: only the master On/Off switch remains, options like e.g. "Warn me about suspicious behavior" have been removed"
this is the only feature I would miss because I do think I should know if a program is dangerous (even potentially).
I kinda miss the DeepGuard detection dialog/popup. It displayed more information :)
But I can understand that new solution is better for novice users (less miss-clicked "whitelist" button).
