    This patch is designed only for Sygate Personal Firewall 5.6.0.2808 (Freeware version). Don't bother to patch Pro version because patcher will refuse to do anything (safety block). I mentioned this so you won't download this patch for nothing ;)

    I was tired of ugly Sygate tray icon when you encountered port scan.
    Tray icon has broken transparency and ugly warning icon.
    I have fixed the transparency problem and created a much nicer warning tray icon
    (red arrows with small yellow exclamation mark flashing next to them).

    Advanced version and CRC32 comparison mechanism in this patch will make sure that you won't patch the wrong version of Sygate Personal Firewall.
    Backup of patched executable will also be automatically created in Sygate installation directory.

    I was watching those crappy icons for 2 years! (lazy Sygate pogrammers :rolleyes: ). But now i made an end to this.
    The executable is not hacked (ok not in the way you might think) to collect any info,i just fixed (edited) two icons that were broken/ugly.
    Patch is also perfectly safe because i use it too.
    If anyone doesn't trust me you're free to ignore this patch.

    If you'll ever encounter new Sygate version that is not yet covered by my patch you're free to contact me and i'll make a new patch that matches correct versions and CRC32 values.

    Sorry i didn't post this before,but Sasha from avast! forums recommended that i post how it looks before and after patching :)

    Well here it is:

    This is how it looks before patching (original Sygate tray icons)*
    http://img323.imageshack.us/img323/7776/default2uq.png

    And this is how it looks after patching (my fixed tray icons)*
    http://img323.imageshack.us/img323/39/fixed2sc.png

    *Both images are split in two parts,which shows both states of the flashing tray icon when attack/port scan is encountered.
    Notice the ugly gray square around it on original tray icon? And some ugly blue cross to show that port scan is going on?

    RejZor,
    Thanks for the patch. I find it a great improvement to the previous warning icon.
