    Thanks for your compliments my friend. Altough I am not as much Technical and knowledgable as you, but it is my curiosity and my will to share my learnings and experiance.


    I can understand your thoughts and totally agree with you and I respect them also.

    On the contrary, Omer, you are very well versed in the technical aspects of information security, and I very much hope that developers will appreciate your help, and we'll see bitdefender really worthy product, and that's when I will raise a glass of wine for your health!


    I support you on all counts in the first message.

    And I lift a glass of wine to both of you. To ONT, for his many informational and ingenious workarounds and threads he's posted, from which we have learned much more in depth information, than we otherwise would have known. And for you Rampant, for your desire and research into the protection of Bitdefender and its antivirus/malware protection and firewall protection, and possible exploits. I consider by both of your threads and posts, has helped make Bitdefender a better, more secure, and understandable product.


    As far as this thread, I will see what I think, as I have just barley started using it (TS 2014beta), and would like to see what settings and options per module, and of a better way, as ONT is seeing. I know from what I've seen is why, for me personally, I don''t use the Total Securities, Pure's, 360s etc. I would rather have my own preference add-ons, that can do the same thing. It can be a situation where this type of software tries to be "the jack of all trades, and is the master of only one"...AV protection. Again it's just a personal preference thing.

    Well, not that someone isn't reading your suggestions - but the time is quite short until GM. Also, there's the problem of legacy - users have accustomed to see the panels in a certain order (I'm just guessing here some reasons).


    The grouping on categories - I completely agree. Perhaps the views should be customizable with a set of defaults (Novice, Intermediate, Advanced).

    Re-arranging the options in the categories is different thing and switching the interface like 2011 version to Novice, Intermediate, Advanced is different.

    Try to change the Update Server / Location from "http://upgr-mmxiv.cdn.bitdefender.net/" to "http://upgrade.bitdefender.com/" in the Update settings.
