    Hi,

    I would like that the v4.0 will close like the v3.5, instead of remaining on system tray...
    At least I think that we should have an option for that...

    Regards

    Right click on the systray icon and click on exit.

    :D You are kidding, right?

    I already know that, but I want that when I close the ewido window, close the ewido and its tray icon...

    I honestly don't see a point to this as what if the user accidentally exits out of the main ewido window, this closing both that window and the system tray icon? I don't think the user would be happy to have to reload the guard etc..

    I don't want to have the guard or the auto-update enabled, so I don't want any tray icon of ewido, like ewido 3.5 and so many applications out there that have an option to have it or not, for example SUPERAntiSpyware.

    Have you tried just "changing the state" of the Resident Shield and the Automatic updates from the Ewido main interface to "inactive", and rebooting and seeing if loads?

    Well then, I guess the only way is to just let the trial run out so it won't startup :doubt: o_O

    I thought you might of had a trial version of Ewido..Then all I can think of is using msconfig to disable those entrys from starting up :doubt:

    I have another idea:

    Let the guard run and then right click on it in the system tray and uncheck the "Resident Shield & Automatic Updates" then uncheck "Start with Windows" and then exit and reboot. And now see if it loads up.

    I'm not saying that the ewido tray icon starts on windows startup or that the "Resident Shield & Automatic Updates" are running, but that the ewido tray icon starts when I launch the ewido and remain on the tray icon when I close the main window of ewido.

    I just want that the tray icon never appear, or at least closes when I close the main window of ewido.

    Hi, VaMPiRiC_CRoW

    I am sorry I misunderstood your problem, I do not think you can do what you want to do even if you disable it, well it did not on my system when I disabled it, it starts Gray in the Tray [they rhyme :)], the same as yours so that will not make it exit when you close it, there is probably or might be reg key that might make it do as you require.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:


    PS: Probably is what my Sig is almost saying. ;)

    No problem, TheQuest ;)

    Let we see what the future release will have, because nobody of ewido team says a word...

    That's a matter of personal taste I think. I want it to stay in the systray and I don't want to close ewido when clicking the x in the upper right corner.
    Did you already try to hide it?

    To your other statement of ewido guys not showing up here: they are pretty busy with fixing bugs and enhencements. Still 44 items on the list yet.

    Like I said, an option will be great for all...
    I don't use the "Hide Inactive Icons" of Microsoft...

    A reply will not take to much time for them...

    The latest version of Windows Defender has an option if we want the icon to show in the systray or not. I like this a lot, since I have already 15 items in my systray, and most of them I really don't need.

    I'd find it very useful to have a similar option in ewido 4.0, to optionally show the guard icon in the systray.

    @pwillener:

    8.) Short Keys Lite
    - click tray icon
    - select Options -> Preferences
    - uncheck option "Place in system tray"

    14.) volume control
    - open control panel
    - select sounds & audio
    - uncheck option "Display volume control in system tray"

    I don't know about the others, because I just have nod32, ewido and the clock sitting in the tray, but you might want to do the following:
    - right-click task bar or start button
    - select "properties"
    - select "disable inactive icons"
    - select adjust to manually disable the other icons

    Cheers,
    El Capitan
