This update adds a long awaited feature: turn real-time protection ON and OFF.

The functionality is available from the tray bar



and the programs bar




In order to protect your security better, it is required to have administrative rights in order to deactivate the real time protection.

Once you do that, the umbrella will be displayed as closed in all places.




Of course, we don’t recommend to do this!

On top of this, there have been many bug fixes, speed and usability improvements implemented (“Quick System scan” is faster).

Why don’t you give it a try?
