It said it wasn't available for Firefox, maybe you're using a extension to embed IE in Firefox?

But what I meant to say is, the progress animation looks like the Firefox trobber, I just pasted the image of the FF trobber on the screenshot of the scan window.

:( It again is a cleaner which gives me problems with my HP All in One.

No use it seems , showed me 548 errors which were actually not errors .

A few things i noticed -

1. The Virus scan and the spyware scan seemed to be happening differently , means first it will scan for virus and then again the whole scan but for spyware.

2. Haha , when you choose to customize the Virus Scan by selecting the folders to scan , there is a mess below the choosing window -

Features of the scanner may be updated as you procced.

It made me laugh , as if they are constantly updating it !!!

@alsiladka - Thats why its called beta

I hope what you said hold true and they change it.

But many Registry Cleaners have some problem with my HP all in one . It is HP's fault . But i fear that this safety center shall also be along the same line.

The only ones that work fine are Tune Up and CCleaner.
