    Can you open the 'Windows Defender Security Center'? There should be an icon for it on your taskbar

    Right-click on it and view security dashboard

    Now click on Virus & threat protection. You should see a section called Windows Defender Antivirus options. There you should be able to disable periodic scanning.

    If that doesn't work. Then uninstall Emsisoft, reboot your computer, reboot again to be sure, and reinstall Emsisoft

    I prefer the old one, faster access and better visibility. Too much scrolling to my taste, make it confusing.

    It looks cleaner BUT all of the text is too small and too grey. Hopefully, they'll put in an option to edit that on individual machines.

    I like new look, only space between two options seems large to me:

    Completely agree!
    Too much scrolling in this interface and the space between the options are too far away.
    Maybe you should create 2 interface, one super simple which should be the default one (Possibly the new one) and just keep the existing one as an advanced one that can be enabled manually.
    So much scrolling makes it confusing.

    I hate it as well, too much white space, too much scrolling, a gui should be crisp and compact.

    Not having distracting scrolling is now considered "advanced" so I wouldn't count on getting back the previous, perfectly functional UI...

    One interface for handhelds and mouse machines is doubtless always less maintenance for the devs, but always only to accommodate the former, and a step backward for the latter, unfortunately :(:rolleyes:.

    Edit: OK, read more at MT now. Actually, Fabian, and Emsisoft are to be commended for interacting with their customers :thumb:, why I still like and use EAM.

    In fact, every time I enter there it's always a guessing game: "Where's the setting I'm looking? Do I scroll up? Do I scroll down? Did I jump it?"

    But I guess it's modern, so that's ok - great, even.

    I don't care if it's pink, as long as it works.

    New one is better. Still feel like some menus settings are spaced just a bit too far away.

    For me what makes the current GUI confusing is that when you are scrolling in the menus, since all tabs are shown in a single scrollable page, when you keep scrolling the different tabs are almost indistinguishable because the interface is too white. Maybe you could try adding a darker or more "contrasty" square that encloses each tab settings or just make the background of the scrollable pages darker so we can differentiate the different tab settings easier.

    I agree with Noob on the idea that it would help to have some better definition between the settings sections as you scroll down the page. Also, I have a general dislike of scrolling lists that are within other scrolling lists. I find them to occasionally be confusing. Having said those things, I don't look at my Emsisoft settings very often so I am not too worried about how the section looks.

    Probably what I found more confusing when I started using the program about ten months ago, is that some of the program's settings are really found in the Protection section. I think I used the program for like two weeks before I realized there were all kinds of settings in the Protection section. I am sure the default protection settings were probably fine for me, but I feel pretty dumb not even realizing they were there.
