    That was was quick after the early betas.

    I ran one of the early builds but that was like an early alpha release!

    Anyone have screenshots?

    Most of the features described would be for the Security suite would they not?

    Using one of the early betas I did not like the fact that in the main Window not all the icons fitted.

    This has now been carried forward to the official release, is there by design and will not be altered!!!! :p o_O :( :thumbd:

    There is a horizontal slider, but it looks very odd to me.

    Most of the Beta users didn't want that but they didn't want to change it.

    This new interface is a tragedy for this product.. I have a long term license to Bullguard I don't even use on any PC's I manage.

    Mostly because;

    1) It used to be fairly light 'feeling', but now feels heavy.
    2) Degraded interface. The old one was good, the new one - not good.
    3) Forced updates on windows boot. Not good, as it slows down boots too much, and BG doesn't seem willing to change this.
    4) HIPS is unsupported by the MIT engineers that made it, it doesn't really seem to do anything anymore.
    5) Poor install/uninstall. Literally half the machines I worked on it didn't install properly, and required remote access from BG tech (which their tech support is fantastic - by the way)

    I think BG needs to go back to their roots. Drop out all of the 'fluff' they added, fix the interface, and find another HIPS. They need to focus on making their product light, and streamlined, and get off the bloat boat. At least that's my opinion as a long term customer of BG enterprises.

    I have fond memories of BG12 - minimalistic approach, fast, reliable, and not a system hog..
