    1) Text cut off remains (for me).
    2) Advanced Checkup toggles Auto-Decision back to default On.
    3) Advanced Checkup removes (added by me) check by Sensitivity > Scope > All files.
    4) same two Suspicious:2 reported earlier > be nice to have a link next to "Suspicious" that opens to Help explaining what Suspicious means. Be nice to have Suspicious > View Details.
    5) Norton exclude would be nice (for me).
    6) Auto-Decision toggles back to default On after Disable and Exit then Invoke CS.
    7) View Details > Hash is nice.

    @bjm_

    Thank you for the feedback. :)
    I found the source of the issue but it may take some time to fix it because it is not related with DPI scaling in Visual Studio.
    Good suggestion. View Details will be added to Checkup section in the next version.
    Still looking into it.
    Will be fixed in the next version.
    I am glad you like it. :)

    Regards,
    Kardo

    .NET 4.5 isnt the newest version of .NET :) I think 4.6 is which has alot of new features.
    But cant check hence Microsofts servers are broken right now.

    Hi @Secondmineboy

    Yes. .NET Framework 4.6 should be the newest version. :)

    Hello there @kardokristal

    I have heard of your program just recently and am giving it a try.

    It crashes a bit. More than I expected it would.

    Anywhere: here is a log files you might find useful. I hope it helps to prevent future crashes:

    ========== Log Start ==========
    The file 'C:\Temp\Protection Extension.xml' already exists. at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
    at System.IO.File.InternalCopy(String sourceFileName, String destFileName, Boolean overwrite, Boolean checkHost)
    at System.IO.File.Copy(String sourceFileName, String destFileName)
    at Crystal_Security.Main.aw()
    at Crystal_Security.Main.g(Object A_0, MouseEventArgs A_1)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnMouseDown(MouseEventArgs e)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmMouseDown(Message& m, MouseButtons button, Int32 clicks)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Label.WndProc(Message& m)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
    at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)
    ========== Log End ==========

    I've tried a LOT of anti-virus and anti-malware tools.

    I love testing such tools. Its a hobby of mine, trying to find the best tools out there.

    Hi @Secure_Guy

    Thanks for the feedback. :)

    Please try out latest build .174 If the issue still occurs then please let me know.

    Regards,

    New VT policy allows freeware to use the public API. That is great for your users, but sort of cuts of future plans to make some money outof Crystal Security.

    Okay Thanks, I can imagine for example Webroot would not be an issue, protection updates are cloud. Norton maintains (small) local protection database for high profile and offline.

    @NSG001 You are welcome. :)
    Hi @SHvFl

    Thanks for the interest.

    Yes. It should be fixed. So far no reports about crashes. :)
    One minute delay seems too much but if there are a lot of files in queue then it is possible.

    If the issue still occurs then please let me know.

    Regards,
    Kardo

    Kardo, my advanced scan resulted with one suspicious file.
    Can you whitelist it in the cloud? I have uploaded it through CS.
    It is Intel PROSet/Witeless Profile Manager module.
