How to clean this?

It's time you looked through all those settings on the left. You'll find it.

Not at all ;).  Although since VS is in pretty good shape now with only a few minor bugs to fix, there will certainly be less to discuss unless we start adding new features to VS.  I am working on several different things.  One thing I have played around with was having an option for SRP instead of our whitelist snapshot... but I have yet to find an advantage in doing so... but if there is one, please let me know!  I think our current approach is much more granular and user-friendly than having an option like that.  One thing is for sure, we do not want to add features that will only bloat VS and not offer anything useful or significant, but there are certainly new features we can consider adding.

Having said that, please keep in mind... the years we spent developing VS and posting on security forums, it was truly an exciting time for everyone.  But now that VS is built out and almost bug free, there is not as much to discuss.  Security discussions in general have died down significantly since April 2018... who knows, maybe the "golden age" of online security discussions are behind us?

But I am working on several different things.  We now have the only user-friendly patented toggling computer lock, and my focus now is to figure out how to put it on every web connected device ;).  Most security products have come a very long way the last 5 or so years, and honestly, the only thing left to do is to lock the computer when it is at risk ;).  So I will be around... I am just really tied up with several things at the moment.  I hope to catch up soon, thank you guys!

Hi Dan - how are we going with multi-user on current versions?  I remember you writing that we may have to use a separate (older) driver for Win7.

And I would very much like to have a version that doesn't ping helppane and hh :)  4.20 does work reliably, but the help-file blacklist is annoying.

Hi Guys
I was checking out what is new with VS.
Looks great.
Shortly after installing the latest stable version on Win 10 1803, and setting it to smart mode, I got a prompt for a Windows Defender process. It came with a recommendation that it is safe, but is that normal, to be prompted for Windows Defender?

@Shmu26 From memory i also got a prompt every now and then for Windows Defender. But coudn't tell you for sure at which settings it occured. I change between "always on" or "smart" mode and/or "moderate" or "aggressive" quite a lot the past days.
