I'm too embarrassed to tell you the specifications of my machine and, besides, I can't write in Aramaic!
1. On the files scan of CFP version 3, the entire machine's scan took 28 minutes: now, with 3.5, it takes 3 hours and 31 minutes. I view this with only minor annoyance because of the increase in duration, but with great joy because it's probably symptomatic of a much more thorough scan being executed. (Same machine, same afternoon, same number of drives and nothing else running.)
2. Why is it advised that I uninstall any other virus scanner/checker before installing the one that is built into CIS? I used to run 3 at once and had no difficulty. Is it okay to run the one I'm running now (Avast) and the one built into CIS at the same time? (Alarm bells always ring inside me when I see one software warn me to uninstall another. I think I almost understand why two firewalls can't run smoothly with each other - but, I've never heard of it happening with more than one virus checker/scanner. Mind you, alarm bells ring inside me when the wind changes direction in Alaska or when there's a "y" in the day!)
3. I'd love to just use Windows Explorer and cruise around every executable (etc.,) on my machine. If I see a cluster of .exe files, lying in a folder (Windows Media Player isn't a bad example, here) that I want forbidden ANY contact with the Net, I'd like to just select them all and use the right mouse (context) menu to ban them from accessing any Net connection - sending their names, in one go, to that "Define A New Blocked Application" input. Doing it one at a time is a little tedious. (I stand more than ready to have myself put straight on this, if a faster way already exists, but I love the idea of using the context menu for this, instead.)
4. Has it? It certainly looks fixed! Dare I ask it? Should I speak of it? Has it happened? Did somebody come through for me? HAS THE ANIMATED TRAY ICON'S IN-DIRECTION AND OUT-DIRECTION ARROWING BEEN.........F-F-F-F-FIXED? If it has, this is better than sex! Lordie, Lordie...Allah be praised, and stuff!
