--=ddSHADOW=-- Posted March 6, 2007 Share Posted March 6, 2007 (edited) Bug Updates - Beta 3The Ad-Aware 2007 Beta is beta quality software, meaning we are in the process of working out some kinks and implementing upcoming features. In response to your official bug reports, the beta forum, and known bugs, we will present a weekly sampling of bug updates and corrections.Graphic User Interface * A bug that caused the GUI to crash if the display is set to a higher DPI rate than 96 has been fixed. Users with displays set above this rate will now be able to run the GUI, but fonts will not be displayed correctly. * The main system for handling graphics has been rewritten, increasing the GUI’s speed. * The GUI’s tab component has been rewritten. * A bug has been fixed in Ad-Watch so that a notification message will appear if users attempt to run Ad-Watch when the application is already running. * System restore point option has been removed for Windows 2000 operating systems, due to the technology not being supported by Microsoft. * Lost connection to service when Windows hibernates is fixed. * Ad-Aware 2007 “lost connection” dialog message is fixed and only launches with lost connection to the service. * Removed memory leak after closing Ad-Aware. * The “Windows Start-up Scan” setting can now be implemented from the Settings menu. * Screensavers cannot be activated during scanning (Smart, Full and Custom Scans) in order to prevent a “Lost connection” error to the Ad-Aware service. * Improvements to GUI speed on select tabs. * “Scanner is busy” error message removed when “Start-Up Scan” mode is set to Smart or Full Scan in the Settings menu. * Multiple minor corrections made in response to forum submissions.Program * Messages and a tray icon for scheduled scans and updates have been added. * A bug in register scan that reported the wrong count of scanned items has been fixed. * Ad-Watch no longer uses 100 percent CPU. * A fix has been made to the Hosts File Editor so a dialog box will notify users of accepted or unaccepted entries when importing to the existing Hosts file. * Database now displays the date of the last incremental update as the database date (core engine). * Tweaked callback for preparing file hash scan. * A template bug used for standard windows directories (%temp%, %appdir% etc) is fixed (core engine). * The service now registers its own failure actions, instead of relying on sc.exe during the installation process which does not work on Win2k. * Now able to stop process during “preparing GUID scan.” * Now able to stop process during “preparing File hash scan.” * Removed the call to sc.exe during installation in response to installation problems concerning Win2K.Coming Attractions * Browser hijack detection in Opera and Firefox * Ad-Watch ConnectDownload:Ad-Aware 2007 Beta 3 Edited March 17, 2007 by --=ddSHADOW=-- Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
