Dr.Web Security Space 9.0 will automatically update to version 10.0

February 17, 2015

Doctor Web is informing users about the upcoming automatic update to version 10.0 for its product Dr.Web Security Space 9.0. The update will give series 9.0 users the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art Dr.Web protection components and a simplified software configuration procedure.

With the revamped mini-agent, upgraded Data Loss Prevention configuration routines, Parental Control, and other anti-virus features, controlling Dr.Web has never been easier.

Please note that all your settings will be saved through the upgrade except the following parameters:

  • Anti-virus network password (Dr.Web 10.0 will enable you to generate a password automatically);
  • Your blocked devices;
  • The Parental Control list of blocked files and directories.

Please note that the Dr.Web 10.0 interface has been redesigned, and the grey system tray icon now indicates that the anti-virus is working properly.

The update will be performed automatically; however, a system reboot will be required. However, if the anti-virus is updated via the Global Updating System, Dr.Web Anti-virus 9.0 won't be upgraded. But, if an update mirror is used, this product will also get updated to version 10.0 (if the mirror is created in Dr.Web Security Space).

Owners of Dr.Web Anti-virus licenses can take part in the Dr.Web Security Space free migration promo and upgrade from the basic security software to the product that provides comprehensive protection.
