Start Simple interface and click "Folders" checkbox.  Marked two options are not browsable even though they are there.

Just click on it twice like you'd like to rename it and then scroll to the end...

Thanks. However, a simple scroll bar would be nice in windows like this.

Exclusion Question: I'm excluding areas of the hard disk where I keep large files that I don't want to scan: Like DVD files I've produced, ISO images that I've produced and so on. I also have approx 6500 .jpg images that I was going to exclude - is this wise in your (anyone's) view? I understood .jpg's to be infectable file types these days...

Thanks.

This is actually as expected. There have been some changes in the implementation of this "Browse for folder" dialog box. It used to be painfully slow (sometimes), now it's much faster.

Even though not directly related to the new version, I agree on that one. Have no idea why the scrollbar is not there - but it should. We'll have this fixed for the next update (yeah, if nothing goes wrong with 4.7.1029, this means a couple of months wait :-\)

Cheers

I haven't given it a full workout yet, since I just did my weekly housekeeping scans with avast etc. yesterday.  But the resident providers seem to be working just fine, as (almost) always.  Can't even see any changes yet from that perspective, but obviously I haven't even had interface open yet.

That doesn't really explain me anything Vlk. It was slow. Ok... but why are those two non functional? avast! not capable of browsing folders? They are regular browsers just like any other.

Hi Jem,

please start a new thread about this (or any other problem(s) you might have).
This thread wasn't meant to solve specific issues (there's too many readers/writers here and it would soon get bloated).

Thanks
