    Just uninstalled Prevx 104 temporarily and got this message flash up as I uninstalled. Have never seen that before although I do reboot out of habit.
    The problem though is that it was gone so quickly - less than a second - that I had to recreate the uninstall and get a screenshot to read what it said. I don't know how quickly the developers at Prevx can read but I bet not many people would have had time to read it, let alone click OK.

    So, could we have that message stay on screen until the OK has been clicked please Joe.

    There are some cases where we would want the uninstall to continue after showing the message, although I do definitely agree that we should make it take longer at least before it takes the message off screen.

    Thanks for the suggestion :)

    Also a note on this topic - we strongly recommend rebooting after uninstalling now because of how the Prevx self protection components work (Prevx isn't fully removed until the PC is rebooted). Let me know if you have any questions on this!
