- The application now waits a longer amount of time before displaying a notification about outdated databases and application modules when the computer wakes from sleep mode.
Main known issues:
- If the "Always scan encrypted connections" check box is selected, the application will scan encrypted connections even if you have paused protection.
- If the application was installed in Windows 7 and you upgraded the operating system to Windows 10 but now want to revert back to Windows 7, you are advised to uninstall the application and install it again after reverting back to Windows 7.
