I'm taking Online Armor for a test drive again, it seems much better than the last time I took it for a spin. :)

The last time was a disaster. :(

I'm now test driving 5.1 Beta.

Quote
What is new in Online Armor 5.1?

Greatly increased compatibility and stability with other applications
 We focused on improving the compatibility and stability of Online Armor in conjunction with products like Google Chrome, Sandboxie, Panda Cloud AV and others.

Overhauled white list settings
 We changed the white list settings slightly. In addition it is now possible to optionally trust all digitally signed files that were signed using a certificate that hasn't been used in connection with fraudulent or malicious activities in the past.

New upload feature
 You are not sure about a certain program? You can now easily upload it to the Emsisoft Anti-Malware Network and get the file scanned using Emsisoft Anti-Malware.

More than 100 other bug fixes
 More than 100 reported bugs and issues in Online Armor 5.0 are fixed in 5.1. Those fixes include for example a recently reported vulnerability with Sinowal drive-by downloads, freezes during the SCW, freezes when executing applications from network shares, various Online Armor GUI freezes, cases where Online Armor forgot about certain application rules as well as many others.

No.  Just test driving OA.

I've always liked OA, but it's buggy.   Over 100 bugs! Worse than I thought.

If they can ever get it sorted out...

gdiloren,

You made a typo, ZA probably is the least buggy fw.

I see that the issue or bug causing the tray icons in to disappear hasn't been fixed in OA 5.1 beta. :(

Speedy,

You may be right if they can't get the bugs out of OA.

I have the setup file for ZA Free ready to launch.
