4.34d working well here without any issues so far. However i do wish the "User Log" was more reliable and consistently recorded an event every time an executable is run from my computer and not just either the first time that executable is run or the first time it's allowed.

For example, I run Simplewall.exe from my downloads folder and VS hasn't white-listed this program yet so I click allow. Simplewall runs and a "User Allowed" entry appears in the log as normal.
I then run Simplewall again and this time as it's now white-listed VS allows it to run automatically and an "Auto allowed" entry is written to the log, again, as expected.

However, if I run Simplewall again nothing is written to the User log. Why is this?

+1  :)  a feature that I liked on NVT_ERP was that it logged every execution with a timestamp, IIRC (last used many many moons ago)  Is more logging feasible (desirable) for VS, would it slow VS down, ie, slow down the system with that feature, perhaps optional logging...  :-\

Bumped up to Auto/Aggressive... still quiet  ;D

Though I would like to see manual toggling on Auto shield... for those times I'm installing trusted apps.

Or at the very least, add the "disable/enable" switch to the right=click context menu from the shield so it can be quickly invoked.
Thank you, I see what you are saying.  Please keep in mind that Smart OFF and AutoPilot are almost identical modes, so this is why AutoPilot does not toggle to OFF when the user clicks on VS.  I am still trying to figure out the best design for the right click menu.  It is nice to have all of the modes and security postures listed, but then the menu is a little to big.  I can see where moving the Disable / Install mode menu item might be helpful though.  All of this is super easy to change, so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know, thank you!

We could add these to the user log, but it would add a massive amount of items to the user log.  All of the items are logged in the DeveloperLog... so please take a look and see if you think we should add all of these to the user log.  If it is not to many, maybe we should add them.  Please take a look and let me know what you think, thank you!

I am waiting for our kernel dev to finish up the new driver, then we will release a quick beta version, then release VS 4.5 to the public asap.

Thank you guys for all of your help!!!

@Dan
How about an lazy option to enable in settings?
If activated right click just spawns (a small setting option) and two colums open with mode select on the left and "security posture" on the right.
And the colums don't close if i change anything. They close after i left click anywhere empty on screen (but not! on VS).

Dan,
I see your point about there being too many entries.

Perhaps, in addition to what you currently log, you could also just add the blocked entries from the Developer log to the User Log as they're of most interest to most people. Especially when VS's Security Posture is set to "SILENT" which doesn't alert you to programs it blocks, other than a few flashes of the shield/tray icon which could easily be missed.

Aaaahhhh, NO.  The Windows eco-system has always required an explicit confirm/rethink ( [ [OK] ] [ [CANCEL] ] ) on all dialogs.  Using any other protocol--eg: click on empty screen space--will inevitably end in tears.  And look what happened after somebody gave M$ ideas following W8...

Hey Everyone,

So here is 4.50!  This version has the new reworked driver and it seems to be doing quite well.

There should only be one remaining bug… the one that is in the Nivot.SignalR dll, and Alex is working on it as we speak.  This bug only affects certain users with certain VPN’s… but we need to fix it either way.  Other than that, I think we are finally pretty much bug free… and it is going to stay that way 😉.

Our digital signature expired today, so I started using another one that we had, so the first 10 or so users will probably see some warnings from smart screen and the like.

Thank you guys, I will catch up asap!!!
