    Thought I'd read somewhere in a post that PH said Monday for this release?

    Me too!! I received a message from Webroot Support on Friday telling me to expect a fix for my on-access scanning problems in this release. Nice to know they hadn't forgotten about me :)

    Just installed the new version and for me there was good news and bad news. The right-click scans are now working at full speed but the more important on-access scans are still painfully slow. Seems like the two problems were actually un-related.

    Looks like it's back to Support I go :(

    Got it, but still disappointed with two issues:
    The missing first keystroke bug is still there:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=326347

    The French translation of the program name I reported to the Service department has not been changed yet.

    I see another problem too:
    In the console at my.webrootanywhere.com, I see *no PC* in the PC Security tab.
    I had a short hiatus where I uninstalled WSA a couple of weeks ago, using Emsisoft EAM in the interim, and went back to WSA a couple of days ago.
    I did several scans since then, and still *no PC* is shown in the console.
    Honestly, I'm quite disapppointed.

    Regards,
    François

    It's possible that the PC was deactivated - you may want to write into our support inbox regarding the console issue as it would be unrelated to the binary software.

    I just pulled the trigger today and purchased WSA Antivirus, and so far, I am really liking the way it runs on my machine.......... First time I have ever purchased an AV, but I like the fact it's an American company, and thought I'd give it a go.

    Will there be any conflicts with WSAAV and Sandboxie paid on my W7 x64 machine?

    Did that, but shouldn't a PC appear when I'm doing scans?

    Anyway it's a moot point now because I went with Avira Premium.

    If a PC was deactivated, it will be completely removed from the console which is why you would need to write into support.

    The PC is back, thanks to support!

    Like I said to them, the name translation is not crucial, but the first keystroke bug needs to be solved as soon as possible, because the program is next to being unusable right now.
