    Sorry, I was out of town.

    I am using:

    Zemana Antilogger
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    WinPatrol Plus
    Comodo Internet Security PRO
    EMET 2.1

    If you are still having this issue and to troubleshoot can you disable all other security to see if WSA works properly? And if it works then turn one at a time to fine the one that is affecting the Lock in the Tray Icon and make sure WSA has full rights to the system within the other security software and please report back with your findings! I have WinPatrol Plus running with WSA without problems and also tried MBAM with WSA in realtime without issues also FWIW!

    It is EMET 2.1 that is causing the lockout problems for sure when you do the configure Apps for WSA. Not sure which of the 7 app name is causing the lockout problems yet.

    There are 7 app name DEP, SEHOP, NullPage, HeapSpray, EAF, MandatoryASLR and BottomUpRand.

    DEP is fine on both side of userid ( admin and user )

    SEHOP is fine on user until I switch to admin ( lock gone ) but when I switch back to user - the lock is back.

    At this point I stop the testing to see what you want to do.

    Zemana Antilogger had problem with EMET 2.1 when I add their to application configuration but I was able to use 5 out of 7. Zemana is currently looking into the other two that I was not able to add to it. (EAF and BottomUpRand)

    Very interesting - I'll have our QA team do some further testing against EMET as well. This is potentially colliding with WSA's own exploit prevention (it applies some EMET-style protection to itself by default).

    Thank you for looking into it. I have added my signature to make it easier in the future when I open a ticket so you'll know what I have on my system.

    Just noticed my lock icon is not showing using Google Chrome with this new build. My settings are the same as Triple Helix. It does show using Firefox though...rather odd...

    WSA, latest version, fresh install on Windows 7. No icon seen with IE8 or FF8 with https sites.

    You might want to grab the specific version number when it's happening. Versions are coming out so fast it's difficult to tell whether you're on .60, .61, .66, or .68 at any given time.

    No Icon at all or just no Lock on the tray Icon on HTTPS sites? Capture29-10-2011-4.04.08 PM.jpg

    Hello TH!
    As I am always having the lock on the tray icon regardless I visit HTTP or HTTPS site, can you kindly shed more light on how it works. My setting is Max. for HTTPS and High for HTTP.

    EDIT: Sorry I overlooked your post on the first page where you said you have the lock on all pages too.

    No; IS and Firewall present here and not running the beta. Maybe I should have posted this in the release section?

    Just installed the beta WSA-C beta again; everything fine with this version (0.60).

    Just to mention fwiw, that I was having no luck at all with lock on icon (using W 7) since, until I changed the icon/notifications settings, and now have both http & https settings at max, and it works good ever since, albeit on every site since "maxed up". Was never advised to tinker with these settings, but it certainly sorted the issue, thankfully.

    My problem was due to me disabling the Core System Shield :blink: :oops:
