    - does not context-menu scan folders with Unicode names ( "0 objects scaned")
    - disappearing of contex-menu scan function when approaching to scan e.g. 7-zip file with unicode name
    - abnormally huge update downloads (25-30 minutes !!!) after playing any PC-game - otherwise updating is normal
    - choking on larger archives (the latest & greatest was - going into some kind of loop during CryENGINE 3 SDK zip-archive scan) :ouch:
    - choking on larger installers (e.g. GoG - "Good Old Games" exe´s)

    You could report it to Fsecure and maybe they will fix some of the problems if future updates.

    I don't think f-secure is going to solve these issues in the near future, they didn't solve them for some years now. these are "old" issues. it is also choking on opening directories with many *.avi files.

    To bad...It´s a (boringly) decent family app,plus a cheaper one in my part of Europe (around 19 € per PC)...but it´s not for me (dealing with a bunch of mods and other stuff on a monthly basis).:doubt:

    I'm quite surprised these issues weren't fixed, I remember encountering them about two or three years ago. Didn't think too much of it at the time though.
