    I uninstalled/reinstalled WSA Essentials to try to fix the problem.
    Still no padlock. Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit. IE 9.0.
    Another question, where can I download the latest WSA version?
    Thanks.

    It seems to be OK now. Very odd. Is there an update going on?

    I checked the standard link below and it's still .95 but the Closed Beta is .131 in which I can't supply to non Closed Beta users! HTTPS sites are set to MAX by default and I set my HTTP to MAX also from default LOW.

    So you give all your visited sites keylogger/identity protection?

    Yes and without issues! So I have the Padlock on all sites!

    Yes it should work fine as I had no problems since going to MAX a few months ago! :D

    Cheers,

    Talking about padlock I see that it doesn't show up in https sites in Pale Moon. I guess it's not a supported browser, is it? :D

    The padlock makes me want to cry. On my home computer, it comes on when I open Notepad sometimes. :\

    You can add the browser to the Protected list so that it will protect it even if it isn't normally supported :)

    As long as there are no ill effects on your system, there shouldn't be a downside to being overly cautious about what's being actively protected, especially if other secured processes are open.

    I can't copy and paste when it happens. I copy something from somewhere (usually the browser), then try to paste it, and nothing happens when I try to paste. So I turn off the ID shield and I can paste. I mean, technically this is the intent. Keep things from accessing the clipboard. But it's unexpected sometimes.
