CHANGELOG

What's New in version 21.3.3174:

Major public announcements:

  • Better scan performance We've made a lot of small performance improvements to various security components (running on background)
  • Improved Rescue Disk We've added a portable web browser to our Rescue Disk so you can search the web even when Windows isn't working
  • Fewer distractions We no longer show pop-up messages when your antivirus is open
  • Passive Mode fix We've fixed a bug that would sometimes disable Passive Mode soon after it was turned on

Bug-fix and improvement highlights for hardcore fans:
