If a database update revision has been changed, the Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite updating module no longer fails to download files.

Numerous changes have also been made to Dr.Web Enterprise Agent for Windows. Now, if issues emerge while the self-protection driver is in operation, the agent will uninstall properly. The update corrects a defect occurring during the creation of a Dr.Web Scanner shortcut on the desktop, and in the Start menu during agent installation. Also eliminated was an issue involving the agent appearing on the list of installed programs after installation via command prompt.

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