    Just to let everyone know that the Recycle Bin Right Click Context Menu "Scan with Webroot" has been purposely removed as it says in the change log under Improved! ;)

    TH

    EDIT: Some are still having this and they consider it to be a bug! If some still have it with this version please report the OS and if it is 32bit or 64bit! Thanks!

    Regarding the Recycle Bin Issue:

    In some cases a reboot will be necessary after performing the upgrade to allow the function to operate normally.
