    Anti-Malware detects and blocks the various Excubits tray tools. Admittedly, many AVs detect it. But maybe you can whitelist signed Excubits files, which you know are not malicious?

    There is already a whitelisting mechanismn and it works. I've forgotten how I did it, but maybe someone here remembers. My duh

    You can do that now:
    - Open Event list and click on the alert -> Suppress Alert.

    This should stop the AM module from blocking further execution of the flagged file.
    Seems you have to reboot to get this fixed, guess we can improve that by releasing the file lock after suppression.

    You can mitigate also by switching AM on/off saves a reboot.

    Thanks, Ronny. I saw that Suppress Alert option, but I thought it only "hides" the alert, but still blocks the file. Maybe the function could be given a clearer name? Or am I the only one who misunderstood, lol?

    That normally shows on Intel supported hardware, can you DM me your CPU details and a screenshot of the GUI lacking that logo?

    Same here. I have all features enabled and no problems to report. Nothing in the custom HMP.A filter in Event Viewer either.

    No issues after all this time on 839, except that I have set Cryptoguard to v4 almost all of the time, because v5 significantly reduces qBittorrents speeds.

    Yes, I have seen speed drop from around 15 to 5 MB/s after setting it to v5, and restoring back when setting it back to v4. It doesn't happen always though, maybe it's related to the number of connections.

    Hi Mark,

    Are these improvements destined for the build 839 CTP1 train as well?

    Hi deugniet,

    Are you seeing the green fly-out when you open Firefox, assuming you have Firefox installed of course.

    Thanks.

    Seems to be running fine on all of my Win10 x64 1903 machines Mark, except the "no green fly-out with Firefox on my machines running Norton" issue.

    Thanks for that. Oh well, I guess I'm [not] special.

    Of course. They've actually been developed in build 8xx and back-ported to 783. So the coming 8xx build will have these improvements.

    So no need to downgrade to build 783 from build 839 CTP1 securitywise?

    Thanks! Any ETA on the coming 8xx build? We haven't seen a new one in quite a while and I love seeing the innovations.

    Current 839 does not have the CTF Guard, so if you deem that scenario a "risk" on your environment then a downgrade to 783 would put an extra layer of defense in place.
