    Recently updated my laptop to IE9, and noticed that the "Prevx Symbol" that's usually above the browser window -- indicating that it's protection is active for that window -- doesn't show up now. It appears to still be on and active, but it doesn't show up anymore. I'm using the latest version of the Prevx/Safeonline free Facebook tool. Thanks!

    IE9 is not fully supported: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1827267&postcount=4 we still have to wait till the Prevx 4 Beta is released! IE8, FF3.6.xx, Opera 10.xx and most of Chrome versions are but not sure as I don't use it that are supported with Prevx 3!

    I suspect this will just be a graphical issue - if a website is blocked or a threat detected, a warning will show covering the entire browser so you don't need to worry about the status on the tab :)

    I had the same issue when I upgraded to IE9 but then I restored down the browser window and there it was. I just had to open the Prevx window and re-position it like I did with Opera. It seems to flicker a bit but it has stayed in place.
