Components in Dr.Web 8.0 products for Windows updated

May 20, 2013

Doctor Web has updated Dr.Web Anti-rootkit Service (, Dr.Web SelfPROtect (, Dr.Web Net Filtering Service (, the installation (, firewall ( and agent ( modules in Dr.Web Security Space, and Dr.Web Anti-virus 8.0 for Windows.

Dr.Web Anti-rootkit Service’s caching routines have been optimised.

In the self-protection module, an issue causing the operating system to freeze or crash when eBoostr—a system optimization program—was in use has been resolved.

Also fixed was a Dr.Web Net Filtering Service bug that could cause continuous CPU loading.

The update also corrects installation module errors that occurred when removing Dr.Web or upon adding or removing its components and led to false requests to restart the operating system and restore the product’s integrity.

A firewall issue with Windows 8 has been resolved where the system was not able to obtain an IP address via DHCP.

Issues when the agent terminated abnormally upon changing the IU lagnauge have also been resolved.

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