    Thanks TH :thumb: Yes, I got the usual 'SunPat Smooth' :D autoupdate nearly 3 hours ago, and hadn't even noticed it had updated until an hour later :)
    I'm guessing there will probably not be many changes with this build, and it's all part of the ever-improving WSA's pathway...

    Forgive my ignorance, but I am a new WSA user. I am currently running 8.0.4.17. Will my version update itself or do I need to do something specific to get this newer version or update?

    I got the web filter update, but now Internet Explorer seems to be sluggish, Chrome seems to be affected too (less than IE).

    It does probably mean that you don't have installed also Password manager otherwise "Pkg" and "Sync" folder will be in WRData folder. Don't you have installed only WSA AV?

    ProgramData has been introduced since Vista, in XP look for C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\.

    You will know when your Browsers ask to install the new Web Filtering Extensions. IE, Firefox & Chrome only supported at this time.

    It should be added that the web filtering update is separate to the program update.
