    There is an inconvenience which could be removed: When a person trusts a file that is flagged by age/population heuristics, the Prevx icon now turns into red. I think this is unncessary. It should remain green.

    I think i will turn green again when the file is trusted by the server?!
    I think that is good.

    But whether the file is flagged depends on your settings (high-low). So it would be logical to turn back to green.

    Once you run another scan, it will change back to being green. The override is applied immediately but it takes until another scan to update the status (just in case there are other files which it would apply to as well or if there are other infections on the PC still even though one of the files was overridden as trusted).

    I understand very well the logic, but it is somehow faulty: Whether the given file is flagged or not depends on the tightness of the setting. It would be logical to turn into red (when user has trusted the file) only if the setting is equal or lower than the default setting given by Prevx team.

    Scanning removes it, I know, but useless scanning seems to me, so as to say, ummm, useless. Whenever I install something exotic I'm forced to scan if the file is flagged due to age/population heuristics (I use highest settings)!
