  • Scanning service issues involving crashes and freezes while infected files were being cured; An error causing the component to stop working if an expired license key file was being used, and a file monitor exceptions list error;
  • A scanner error that made it impossible to disable the option to scan containers if launched from the command line; An error that occurred when running a virus scan via the context menu.
  • The updated Dr.Web SpIDer Guard can use some Dr.Web Anti-rootkit Service routines and, if necessary, utilize the service to neutralize threats. Errors found in operation of this component have been corrected.

The update will be automatically downloaded by the Dr.Web Anti-virus service software and by Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite, but a system restart will be necessary to apply the update.
