    After using DrWeb for a month now I found two issues that I found important.

    1.- Be able to disable SpIDer Guard and change settings without rebooting.
    2.- Be able to put False Positives on a Ignore list so they don't keep reappearing.

    The first issue I found more important because SpIDer Guard with heuristics enable stop Windows from loading because it pick up a false positive on the boot up. I had to restart in safe mode, disable heuristics in SpIDer Guard and reboot in normal mode. I beleave if DrWeb adds these two features it will be a great Anti Virus.
    Regards

    Hi Tim,

    Spider is running in DOS; seems your wish cannot be honoured for that reason. IMHO it's the (strong!) heuristics causing you trouble here.

    If I'm not mistaken, this can be done - using the DrWeb configuration.

    regards,

    Thanks Paul, I found the ignore list. It is label Excluded Folders in the setting label Paths. It work out well. I like SpIDer Guard with the heuristics enabled. Now that I have it Ignoring the five false positives that it kept tagging every time I open a few applications.
    Regards
    Tim ;) :)
