I will know if it's good when I actually test it for a while. I just updated last night.
It is testing the same on my end, but I did find that once in a while a program that is allowed to be auto-quarantined is sent to the quarantine folder, but does not show up in the GUI quarantine list. Other than that I can find nothing so far. Minor GUI thingy.

I really like how they implemented a solution to escape the AV institutes' moron radar while not breaking functionality for people who can tie their own shoes in the morning. No change in philosophy and the function can be turned on or off at your leisure. Great job. :)

'Moron Radar', :D. Call it whatever you like, but it still represents how the majority of users behave in a similar situation.

It's about a time, remember that any product should also align to be user friendly throughout the all level of users. If the BB is already smart enough then why not implement an auto-response? Good addition from Emsisoft.
