    Is this in house development? Or leased.

    Both. We partner with Frisk using the F-Prot engine but also have our own engine that also powers the Cloud update feature on client and server alike.

    Okay thanks, I was just curious.

    I ran Sophos Anti-rootkit and Returnil flagged it. I excluded it. I thought I disabled the av before hand.

    This is a great program... but there is one thing I really don't like; there is no indication of knowing you are in virtual mode visually.

    I made a crap load of system changes and realized I was in virtual mode so I had to start all over again:'(

    You can go under Preferences and choose the Administration tab and select the option to notify when virtual mode is active. That way the tray icon changes color when you are in virtual mode so if it is green then virtual mode is active.

    Thanks for the tip. Mine icon is green and it's not in virtual mode. I noticed the icon will change to red when I disable the av.th

    I did what you said and the icon changed to red. I will try it in virtual mode and see what happens.

    The options cm1971 is referring to are for alerting the user about which feature (VG or VM) is NOT active and thus presents a priority security concern. The default is to alert when the Virus Guard is not active. This will manifest as red icons in the tray and toolbar with an additional "NOT PROTECTED" warning shown within the RSS GUI.

    If you wish to select Virtual Mode as the priority security concern, expect the tray icon and toolbar to be green while virtualized and red when it is turned off. This may be a more appropriate setting for your environment.
