Re: FS Protection PC Release 221

Hmm...  That was a bit weird!  I was going to wait for it to auto-update, but I've just installed the 'new' client manually, and for some reason was expecting a different look, but it looks exactly the same as the old one!

 

Oh well, it all seems to be working anyway.  The installation insisted that I manually removed Hitman Pro, but it was only the web client anyway, which I hardly ever used, so I can just reinstall that if I ever need to.

 

Other than that, as smooth as ever.  :)

Sorry if you're disappointed. Smiley Happy

 

The change was actually massive but it was internal restructuring of the product without affecting the user-visible parts. I can assure you that we haven't done such a big change for 7 years. The main effects for user are faster and more reliable install and updates.

 

We are preparing to roll out the update to TP215 clients soon. It has taken a bit longer than expected.

Hi @Ville,

 

Not disappointed, as such, just a bit surprised!  Smiley Happy

 

Usually, when a product undergoes a radical face lift, this is shown outwardly, so that customers know that the product has been updated, and there is also the possibility therefore of attracting new customers.  If I was just a regular customer, I probably wouldn't even know that anything had changed.

 

I think you know that I've never been particularly a fan of the 'light' UI design, but I guess the most important thing is that the product works effectively.  Do you not feel, however, that a visual refresh is due, as it's been several years since it has changed significantly?

Does this help?  You will need to log in to get the installer.

Re: FS Protection PC Release 221

Clean installed without a glitch, but I have a doubt: is this by design that MS Windows security apps are not disabled by the installation ? I already noticed that MS Defender jumped on and eradicated a suspicious file (keygen) and that FS did not react on the same file ?

When I install Webroot or Eset e.g. they do disable Defender and clean off the suspected file on their own.

Thank you for your attention
