    Hi G,

    They wanted to notify users because the 2014 product GUI is going to be Dark green from the White and green GUI that you have now and didn't want the customers to freak out so it should go away soon as the message says in a week. Also from 2012 to 2013 there was no notice because the GUI was a minor change and this one is a big change.

    Daniel ;)

    The switch from Prevx to WSA caused panic and complaints, this time they warn users before.... but... the complaints are... still coming :D

    Not really a complaint, more of a nuisance or distraction :argh:

    We don't have an option within the UI to turn off the popups but we may be able to add a registry entry or something similar to disable them. I'll see what options we have - the messages are used sparingly and do contain important content so I wouldn't want users to inadvertently miss out on key information.

    it would be cool for users like us here at wilders though that monitor everything going on to be able to turn them off. im not against having it per say but i know if my wife or daughter saw it i would be getting a call within minutes telling me something is wrong with the computer rather than "this" is what i saw on the screen lol. for the average user and most of my customers i would not want to see it turned off.
