    I'm running XP x64 so this may only apply to XP, but will also probably apply to Vista/Win7.

    1) Some of the controls aren't themed. For example, on the Heuristics Settings page, the scrollbars, left/right buttons, and radio buttons aren't themed.

    2) Suspend Protection dialog: The combobox is not themed, although the drop-down list is themed.

    3) Suspend Protection dialog: Can you display more than three lines in the drop-down list.

    4) When a separate window is displayed for an option/feature (eg. Suspend dialog), can you give this window a taskbar button, so that it's not possible for this window to stay open when other windows obscure it.

    5) Self Protection defaults to Minimum (at least on my system - XP x64), although Medium is apparently supposed to be the default setting (due to "(Standard)" appearing next to it).

    :thumb: All very good suggestions. The "theme-ing" is non-trivial as we support everything from Windows NT4 to Windows 7 in one executable, which is why it isn't perfect graphically currently but we will be improving this, if not in the next release, definitely in v4.0.

    Self protection on 64bit is not as strong as on 32bit which is why we default it to Minimum. We're going to be expanding this in the near future but because of the kernel changes Microsoft has made in 64bit, it requires different techniques to protect software.

    All of the other suggestions should be fairly easy to get in place and we should have them in for the next release :) Thanks!

    As always, I'm amazed at the responsiveness of your company!

    Does that mean that Medium and Strong Self-Protection are no more effective that Minimum on x64 ?

    They do have some minor benefits as to protecting the configuration within Prevx 3 itself but they are no stronger against kernel/process level attacks.
