    Indeed great news! It is good to know that version .680 was working fine.

    Exactly. A nice piece of new news we not seen in awhile. My own current version having proved itself solid and reliable against formidable efforts that would toasted most machine's O/S systems and at the very least required a image restore is performing without fail. :thumb:

    Congratulations to Tony on the new version. :)

    There is a small typo on a page


    http://www.shadowdefender.com/history.html
    The page shows
    version 1.5.0.762 instead of 1.5.0.726

    'Shadow Defender V1.5 Change History

    Version 1.5.0.762 - August 5, 2020
    Fixed: Fix a bug related to Exclusion List on Windows 10.'


    Notified Tony Wed 5 August 2020 Fixed

    I doubt that it's the same 'Tony' we once knew. Nevertheless I'm happy to see SD revitalized after 15 months!

    I believe that's very likely because this new SD version is reporting a different "Verifed Publisher".
    Up through v1.4.0.680 the publisher was reported as "Yang Ping" (aka 'Tony'). This new release (v1.5.0.726) reports the publisher as "Beijing YiChengWeiLai Culture-Tech Co., Ltd."

    Without changing the version number, the distribution has been resized a second time, and now it is digitally signed on August 6th. I don't like such silent changes.
    Hello, Tony or not-Tony, what's going on? :(

    There has been some conjecture that this is not the same Tony, but this method (sort of running beta) convinces me that it is, because, he has always worked like this. Tony will, if a valid user, bug feedback notification arrives quickly after a release just fix and release again, often hours after receipt, using the same version number.
    I suppose (I'm guessing) on the feeling that at that point not many people will have downloaded it and not to alarm the users by sudden version number changes after a new full release or maybe just for a speedy implementation of the changes.

    Will you be running the 'new' installer over the top of the one released on the 2nd August?

    I will not personally be doing that because I use an older version 1.4.0.519 (which I am content with on my main working system) but if I was going to upgrade from the withdrawn release version, I think I would uninstall and do a fresh install of the later version, just to be on the safe side. I have no reason though, to believe, that an 'over the top' upgrade would do any harm. It is normal and usual to use that method.
    I will, of course, use the new version, on my other systems.

    Why wouldn’t a (possible) new Shadow Defender-owner/programmer introduce him- or herself?

    Hi Stapp, I just installed an 'over the top' of the latest version 6th Aug over a version 1.4.0.519 on a laptop and I didn't like what happened. Shadow Defender 1.5.0.726 later release acted unusually, didn't install properly and asked for a password (not serial number). The system (Windows 7) went into repair mode and when rebooted the new Shadow Defender hadn't installed. Maybe not true for everybody but set off alarm bells for me.

    I later reverted to my older version after a complete uninstall of Shadow Defender and a fresh installation of 1.4.0.519 which went without any noticable problem.

    Well that doesn't sound too good. I am on August 2nd version (only installed, not run - yet).

    Think I'll wait how this pans out ... @stapp?

    I have previous SD1.4.0.680 setup as well ...

    I installed the August 2nd one by running the installer and it overwrote the old one. I had SD1.4.0.680 previously.
    I have never had the 1.4.0.519 version that sdmod mentioned plus I am on Win 10.
    I am trying to decide whether or not to run the August 6th one over the top of the August 2nd one (both 1.5.0.726 but different sizes)

    The 1.4.0.519 version is nothing special, it's just the one that I prefer and have used.
    I also have it installed on Windows 10 on other PCs
    I don't know if there is anything wrong with August 6 'install over' but as I said it acted strange to me and I've lost confidence in it and when Windows 7 was doing the 'repair' I don't know what it was repairing or why.

    Patrick

    ps Maybe I'll try it again later to see if I get a different result

    Same (though I must have had 1.4.0.519 at some point).

    Will wait this one out, and let the enthusiasts experiment ... :D
