Are you inferring that not installing the MailShield will make CyberCapture less effective ???
No Bob, MS is not related to CC in any way, but WS is.
I'm not disabling WebShield. That's never been a question or part of my discussion. :)

Are you sure? Because no one mentioned WS for CC either until we pointed out the limitations/restrictions.

Let me try to clarify another point:
1. The mail shield if not in use, uses no resources, so not really an issue.
2. Just because you only use webmail, doesn't mean the mail shield is redundant.
3. The mail shield could be your first indication that you have a hidden/undetected spambot (malware) on your system.
4. Some malware comes with its own basic smtp function, so it doesn't need yours (if you have one installed or not).

So the Mail Shield essentially has an alternative, undocumented function, I would say keep it and not only that but bump up its Sensitivity.

Thanks, an explanation that makes sense and a reason for me to rethink it's necessity. :)

I hadn't noticed this in prior versions.
An easy way to switch over to isolated browsing.

I'm well aware of what it does. I'm just confirming that this was newly added the the right click function.
Hoping for other additions that were promised a long time ago. :)

This is a welcome addition of Components Menu where users can install/uninstall modules easily and finally trying to fix the WSC issues. I'm also happy that the components are more clearer so users would know they are installing browser extensions.

The Mail Shield must be included within Minimal install since it can give first indications of malware such as Spambots which David has mentioned. On top of this, it uses no resources if not in use.

Since the nitro update, I've experienced Avast loading slower after startup so I would suggest trying to improve that. On top of this, would it be possible to see some CyberCapture statistics to see if it's actually working...

I would also like to see files which trigger CyberCapture to have an option to "run in sandbox" for paid users.
