The pop-up provide enough information regarding what the program was doing even before they added More Details. IMO this would look better:


Edited using Design and Paint.

And what's with waiting for a new version all the time. :dodgy:

Why would you want Web Shield to be scanning all processes? :huh:

Web Shield is for HTTP protection, so why would you want it to scan processes already running.

Should the File System Shield already do that.
