Release 17.8 beta 5 (4.30.5794):
New features:
  • Chromium based Microsoft Edge browser is now supported.
  • The design of excluding harmful items found in manual scanning has been changed but this is still work in progress and the new UI elements have not been translated. More changes are expected in this area.
  • New App and file control dialog is now fully in use and the old dialog has been removed.
  • We have made significant internal changes to the product structure to support future development. This should not change anything in product behavior.
Fixed issues:
  • Network installer name is changed to "Setup Tool" (PBL-6023)
  • fssettings crashed (PBL-6019, SAFE_BUG-02902)
  • "Fileless" exploits not handled correctly in App and file control (PBL-5996, SAFE_BUG-02896)
  • Trouble with opening fresh .NET App and File Control (PBL-6014, SAFE_BUG-02899)
  • Badly rendered targets/exclusions in scanning reports with IE due to misplaced "ul" tag (PBL-5971 SAFE_BUG-02894)
  • Some fixes for Narrator support (PBL-5940)
  • Short scan completes very slowly (PBL-5995)
  • Internet Security renewal text changes (PBL-5683)
  • "Scan Wizard" crashes in 10-20 seconds after stopping by user (PBL-5932, SAFE_BUG-02893)

I wonder if my ISP spectrum will update to the latest version. Let’s see I’ll try running an update on one of my computers with it...... when it’s released to the public!

Wow! Is Spectrum actually using a Beta version? :unsure: If so it might help explain the noted difference in the UI.
I might not have been very clear with my response sorry about that...... they are not using a beta version.... I'm just wondering when it's officially released as "stable" how long will it take for the service provider to update it to 17.7 to 17.8. Hopefully the update will come through as quickly as the regular version of F secure. security software provided by ISP's usually lag behind about 1 month. however the norton from comcast now gets the same releases as the regular branded products. Lets see how good spectrum is at updating the the latest product version as i'm new to it.
