  • To decrease the CPU load, the Dr.Web Firewall for Windows notify module’s post-system wakeup start routine has been redesigned;
  • Also eliminated was a defect that caused SpIDer Agent for Windows to freeze during browser launch if the parameter “Not specified” had been set in the firewall rules.

Anti-rootkit API:

  • An issue involving the installation of NVIDIA drivers has been eliminated;
  • A defect involving Truecrypt being blocked by the Preventive Protection has been corrected;
  • Also resolved was a Preventive Protection issue that interfered with the implementation of SRP (Software Restriction Policies);

  • Enhanced protection from exploits.

Scanning service:

  • Increased scanning speed.

  • Also eliminated was a problem that prevented the utility from determining the default browser (Internet Explorer);
  • Now the utility also collects information about Dr.Web Hypervisor settings.


  • An issue that caused the component to terminate abnormally on machines whose CPUs didn't support the instruction set SSE2 has been resolved.
