    Hello all,
    This build is a minor upgrade over 206, fixing a few incompatibilities but overall the protection has not changed significantly. To retest the changes after upgrading, just close/reopen your browser. The download links are still:

    32bit: http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?grab=edgebeta
    64bit: http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?grab=edgebeta64

    ! IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ !

    We found a bug in the upgrade process which could cause an older component to persist on the system and not be upgraded, which looks to be the reason for some of the issues persisting that we thought were fixed. If you could please try uninstalling and installing the newest v3.0.4.213 on top, this may fix some of the persistent issues.

    The changelog between 206 and 213 is:
    - Fixed an issue with the Opera cache causing downloads/some pages not to load
    - Fixed an issue identify illegitimate HOSTs file entries
    - Fixed an issue blocking the Refresh button in IE8/Win7
    - Minor changes which should improve Firefox graphical behavior on-load
    - Added identification of incompatible programs
    - Fixed compatibility with NIS2010
    - Fixed compatibility with Ikarus

    Known Issues:
    - Some incompatibilities with Fritz!Protect firewall
    - Possible issues with some download managers (if you experience any, please send a scan log to report@prevxresearch.com - we're adding exceptions for them as much as possible as they are reproduced :))
    - Possible (unreplicated) issue with Threatfire v4.6.0.19
    - Possible issue cleaning the Trojan Simulator
    - Opening a new window in Opera prevents Prevx from monitoring the window properly

    Conceptual Incompatibilities:
    - Defensewall is expected to block Opera support as it prevents browsers from reaching trusted components (Prevx) so we are not able to load some protection/monitoring into an Opera browser protected by Defensewall

    - SAS and MBAM scanning is sometimes slowed when Prevx is active: This is an issue stemming back a while and is solved by stopping Prevx protection while scans are taking place. We're investigating whether it would be possible to identify the operations SAS/MBAM are making in the system to prevent us from intercepting their file reads to improve their scan times.

    Next Steps:
    - Add Safari Support
    - Add Iron Support
    - Add Maxthon Support
    - Add a "Reset to Default" button

    Please let me know what you find! We had relatively few reports of problems with build 206 and are hoping to continue fixing any stray issues that come up :)

    Im sorry to say but Opera 10 downloads only work until you visit a https website (I am on .210 and rebooted).

    Another thing i noticed. If you open another second Opera Window (not Tab) then the SafeOnline tab don't show Ips, Rating etc.

    Also right clicking on a Dropbox-ed file and choosing "Browse on Dropbox Website" i get this error like in IM's before if Opera is your default browser.

    Flash videos (YouTube and the like) still don't load right in Opera and SafeOnline v210.

    Re: Prevx RC 3.0.4.210 - 3.0.4.212

    Hello all,
    We've just released another update, 3.0.4.212, which should correct a few incompatibilities with Opera and Ikarus. We will have another update coming out within the next half hour or so to 3.0.4.213 which should fully correct NIS2010 compatibility (and the incompatible warning will be removed).

    Let me know if you experience any other issues!

    This happens when you open a second window in Opera:

    Hello all,
    We've released build 3.0.4.216 now (https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=254635) but have identified a couple issues in the upgrade process. If you do happen to have any problems upgrading to 3.0.4.216, please let me know. If all else fails, you should be able to uninstall/reinstall .216 directly.

    Thank you again for the testing! :)
