    i try to install DW2.51 but KIS detected it as a trojan downloader (maybe FP :D ) and it wont let me install it even i click "allow".

    i guess its not the job of DW to fix the problem, but theyre loosing customer everytime AV tag DW as trojan downloader and wont let install it.

    Stable and smooth for me.
    And yes, false positive is a problem ; and Prevx is not immune to that…

    It is stable for me too, only previous versions (2.45) of DefenseWall with active-skin was unstable for me. New skinless v. works like a charm.
    I sent to PrevX log file and they told me that the FP has been fixed.

    Ilya has already released another test version, pre-2.52 and "this build fixes a few issues, the most important of which is CPU usage by periodical check functions".

    I do hope that v2.52 fixes the CPU usage issue. As it is, DefenseWall uses a lot of CPU time, which really puzzles me. It's not like it has to scan every single file.

    DefenseWall and Prevx EDGE are the only security applications I use (at the moment). Looking at SoftSphere's forum, others are also experiencing the same thing; that is, DefenseWall using a lot of CPU time.

    Also, I've noticed that DefenseWall occasionally spikes when playing games. For this reason, I disable it whenever I play.
