More improvements in Dr.Web 12.0 for Windows, Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite 12.0 and 13.0, and Dr.Web AV-Desk 13.0’s subscription-based Dr.Web Anti-virus software

September 28, 2021

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web continues to improve its anti-virus software and reports that Dr.Web Scanning Engine ( and SpIDer Agent for Windows ( have been updated in Dr.Web Security Space 12.0, Dr.Web Anti-virus 12.0, Dr.Web Anti-virus 12.0 for Windows Servers, Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite 12.0 and 13.0, and also in Dr.Web AV-Desk 13.0’s subscription-based Dr.Web Anti-virus software.

A Scanning Engine issue that might cause protected computers running Windows XP to freeze has been resolved, and a number of minor tweaks have been introduced.

Adjustments to the Agent make the Dr.Web software’s operation more transparent and reliable.

Now, thanks to UI tweaks in the “Statistics” section, users can easily select the viewing period for anti-virus operational reports.

Furthermore, a system reboot prompt is no longer displayed whenever the system is booted up if the virus databases get updated automatically.

The usability of the Agent menus has been improved.

The update also resolves a number of known issues:

  • A defect causing the Agent to terminate abnormally if the “Support” item was selected in the pop-up menu while the dialogue for browsing files and folders was being used to add items to the exceptions list;
  • An error preventing administrator mode from being enabled if the Agent’s installation directory was set as case sensitive;
  • A defect causing icons in the “Exclusions” and “Devices and personal data” sections to appear grey in user mode;
  • An error affecting the ability to use roaming user profiles in Windows;
  • Additional minor tweaks and adjustments were made.

The update will be performed automatically; however, a system reboot will be required.
