    Thanks for that - I'm now on 8.0.6.41 (alpha) build so it may now be worth me re-gressing back to production build and re-testing again.

    I've bitten the bullet and regressed my main MBP OSX10.9.1 test volume (on MBP 7.1 + 8GB) back to Production 8.0.5.82:134 (via fresh/de-install) and left Babs MBP(5,5 + 4GB) on the alpha fork at the moment.

    This was installed over a current F-Secure app (Sophos not yet re-installed) and pleasantly had no show stoppers in either de-install or re-install that initially caused problems and kernel panics end of last year on earlier Mac versions.

    It's even restored the Web Shield filter icon in Safari that went obstinately missing during one of the alpha releases although too early to say whether the issues on a non admin account will re-occur on this production release?

    Currently WSDaemon is maxing CPU and winding up laptop fans while initially scanning and re-building local WSA database again but that's to be expected perhaps.

    Assuming I don't incur a China Syndrome in meantime(CPU die peaking @ 88degC) will post back when further testing has provided any valid feedback.

    Watch this space.... ;)

    UPDATE: After 3.5hrs I developed tinnitus listening to my MBP fans screaming and as the Menu bar WSA icon indicated the scan had stalled at 700k files (of 1.8M) and Scan Preview still indicated "Preparing-to-Scan", I rebooted and consequently enjoyed the relative quiet as the WSDaemon and scanning had stabilised after reboot to normality!

    Stress tested User Switching and at least no kp's or WSAC GUI crashes although I noticed that despite the WSAC prompts that Safari won't place the WebShield icon on a standard (non Admin) user account although the WebRoot Password icon only is however retained over reboots.

    That said despite minor issues, there's definite (and most welcome) progress on production WSAC(Mac)v82! I might have to work considerably harder to now break it again? ;)
