Better to reinstall Ewen. I think it will automatically uninstall previous version.

Installed this new beta over the last beta with no problems.  Just a few preliminary comments/observations.

1.  Installing this beta on top of my previous beta only uninstalled the older beta and then asked if I wanted to restart my computer.  After the reboot the CPF setup was not started.  I had to manually install the new beta.

Shouldn't the final version handle the uninstall and reninstall after the reboot automatically?  Most other products do this.  After the first reboot the setup procedure for the new version is run automatically.  There is the possibility that some less then proficient user would not have the 'smarts' to install the new version themselves thinking that what they just ran did that for them.

2.  Scanning for known applications still only scans my C: partition as indicated by the changing list of files that are being scanned.  I have many more drives/partitions on my system that are not being scanned at all.

Also, only 3 applications on my C: partition, which is my boot and system drive, are being found.  They are iexplore.exe, msimn.exe, and msnmsgr.exe.  I have lots more and would have thought CPF would know about them.  One is AOL AIM which just about everyone uses.  Even Outlook Express is not being automatically found on my system.

3. I know that since the last beta you do some checks during shutdown.  On my system a shutdown takes less then 10 seconds.  With the new betas it is more then 30 seconds.  Any plans to try and reduce the delay?  You'd be amazed how annoying 30+ seconds can be when shutting down especially when I have to power off some hardware right after.  I just can't press Shutdown and walk away from my machine.

Hi,

No problems so far with the latest beta, just uninstalled, reinstalled, then rebooted and everything seems fine. I will post any bugs or anything that I think should be improved.

Hi guys,

FYI:
Tomorrow we will be releasing another BETA with a new leak test(CPIL3).  We have tested all major firewalls with their highest settings.  More info about the new technique, and the underlying threat analysis will be available tomorrow.

Cheers,
Egemen

P.S. How many more Beta versions will there be until the final release of version 2.3?

Looking forward to the new beta.

Also, I have a problem with CPF not remembering my selection for Kodak Easyshare software updater.  It seems that when I put my computer into standby then wake it CPF pops up a message about it.  I've got some screenshots.

Tried the new BETA and this is the first time I've had problems with it.  First, I must say that the uninstaller is not wothy of the word uninstall. It leaves a bunch of stuff in the registry and does not do a good job of cleaning up. Anyone ever hear of zero footprint?

I used the uninstall program this time just to see everything it left behind. Thumbs down for the uninstaller. I know this  is not a priority item, but  should eventually be improved.

I'm not sure if this was caused by the installer, but after allowing it to restart my system, XP did not reboot. Instead it put my laptop into suspend mode. I couln't even get it out of the docking station because the  undock button was still locked. I finally got the system out of suspend and was able to unlock. Never had this before, but I'll give you guys the benefit of the doubt.  :)

I installed the new BETA, rebooted  and got an  error message about not being able to find an autoproxy. I booted  a 2nd time and got the pop-up below. After a third boot things quieted down.

All other problems I previously mentioned are still there such as font truncations, saving window settings, transparent registration menu, launching IE from the about page etc, but I guess these things will be fixed when the dust settles right?.

I should have waited till tommorrow for the next BETA :)
