    Chris,

    Off the subject, but is there a way to tweak the good Dr. to prevent the balloon in the system tray from popping up every time Dr. Web updates? Avira allows for silent updates with no pop-ups, and frankly it is getting very annoying with Dr. Web pop-ups. Any solution?

    I can hide/disable it, I just thought there might be any easy way to do it.

    cheers Blackcat.

    you will have to run the .ini file as Administrator if on Vista Bunk, or you wont be able to save it.
