    I've noticed something strange with SafeOnline. For normal http websites I have SafeOnline on the medium setting, thus the little Prevx tag on top of IE8 is always green. But when I have no browser open and for example I open CCleaner and click the "Check for updates" link, which in turn automatically opens IE8 which goes to the CCleaner website, then the little Prevx tag is blue.

    When I close the IE8 window which CCleaner opened, and then re-open IE8 the normal way (by clicking on the IE8 icon), then the little Prevx tag is green again. Also when I let CCleaner open IE8, then Prevx says that the website is unknown, but when I open IE8 directly and then manually browse to the CCleaner website then Prevx says the website is verified.

    This is the link I used to test both situations: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/update?v=2.29.1111&l=1033

    When I already have IE8 opened the normal way (and the little Prevx tag is green), and I then open CCleaner to check for updates (which in turn opens a new tab in IE8 ), then I have have no problems and the little Prevx tag is also green.

    I don't have any manual websites configured and only use the default websites that Prevx automatically adds during install.

    Here are some pictures:

    Any ideas?

    So I'm not the only one then... :shifty:

    I'm quoting the post you made there in this thread to, it might be handy to keep it all in one place. :)

    Thanks for the bug report :thumb:

    We are aware of this issue and are still designing a workaround for it, which will hopefully be in place in one of the next updates.

    I'll update this thread as soon as we have some answers!
