    Re: Prevx RC 3.0.4.227

    Hello all,
    This build fixes a few incompatibilities and issues. To retest the changes after upgrading, just close/reopen your browser. Please see the "Complete List of Known Issues" area below and send me a message or make a post here if there is any other issue which still exists.

    The download links are still:

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

    The changelog is:
    - Fixed an incompatibility with the Digsby account manager
    - Fixed some issues with credential protection warnings
    - Fixed compatibility with GameGuard
    - Fixed an issue saving SafeOnline scan settings
    - Fixed an issue sending validated URLs
    - Fixed an incompatibility with ZoneAlarm
    - Fixed an incompatibility with Super AdBlock
    - Fixed some minor issues in the Enterprise version of Prevx
    - Minor graphical changes

    Complete List of Known Issues:
    - Incompatibility with NIS2010 identity protection
    - Possible crash with A2 + Ad Muncher on XP SP3
    - Browser can't be minimized with TrayIt 4.6.5.5 (XP SP2)
    - Possible issue using YouTube under a Sandboxie'd Firefox 3.5.3 (Vista SP2)
    - Issue preventing KeePass seeing macros or copying/pasting data
    - WinFlip isn't allowed to flip browser windows (XP SP3)
    - Crashes with Firefox 3.5.3 + IETab + WebSiteWatcher + Xmarks + Foxmarks
    - Connection issue with ShadowDefender + OnlineArmour in Shadow Mode (XP SP3)
    - Slow "My Documents" synchronization when configured to synchronize on logon/logoff
    - Accents do not work on ABNT2 keyboards
    - Possible incompatibility with Zemana AntiLogger (Win7)
    - Back button on a Logitech SetPoint mouse doesn't work properly
    - Stray issue causing My Documents to open after a SafeOnline-configured scan takes place
    - Incompatibility with Fritz!DSL Protect

    Conceptual Incompatibilities:
    - KeyScrambler says keystrokes are not encrypted on HTTPS websites (Prevx is already encrypting them beneath KeyScrambler)

    - 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

    Please let me know what you find and thanks again for the testing! :)

    The connection mode with ShadowDefender and Online Armor must be specific to that setup is it? I am using Prevx Beta with Online Armor ++ alone and have had no problems with it.

    Indeed, these issues have almost all only been reported by a single user - the majority of users haven't had problems but I felt it would be useful to get a digest together of the issues that have been reported :)

    I have scheduled scans turned off but sometimes it still starts a scan in background.

    So is this fixed or just vanished for no reason from known issues list? ;)
    And before you are asking ... yessss .. I am lately a bit cautious with installing RC's. :D - But if this is fixed I might be ready to face the unknown! - Build. 227. :D

    You should be able to get it using the beta links from the other builds. Mine just updated automatically.

    The only change between 227 and 228 is the change which I explicitly made to work on your PC :doubt: Can you please send me a scan log to report@prevxresearch.com? One possible cause "may" be avast 5: have you experienced these problems with Prevx before having avast 5 installed?

    Hi Joe, I tested that new 228 build some hours ago because the life/public version stalled when I wanted to scan after working like clockwork the days before. It just didn't start exactly as it happened before. And of course as always I couldn't stop/kill it then, had to reboot and so I assume now the Fritz!DSL Protect issue isn't really solved and just vanished without reason from the list above! ;)

    Then I decided to give 228 a quick shot ... and that version worked quite well for some minutes ;) but then the prevx info thing (blue) crashed IE8 (or vice versa .. who knows :)) in private mode and all went south. - So at the moment I am Prevx-less surfing and really pressing all thumbs for the next RC build(s)! :D

    It indeed looks like it has vanished, thanks to some inaccurate copy/pasting on my end :)

    I'll probably need to investigate this closer sometime tomorrow or next week if you're available - build 228 doesn't have any significant changes over 227 but we don't have access to any Fritz!DSL hardware/software and haven't had any other user come in with a similar problem :doubt:
