- Improved Scanning Engine, optimized for detection and removal of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), that represent a major nuisance today.

- Revised Notifications System, with maximum efficiency to run as quietly as possible in the background without interrupting you during your work.

How to test
You can install version 12 either by selecting the “Beta” update feed in Settings -> Updates, or by downloading the full installer at our beta test forum.
Please note, once your computer upgrades to version 12, you can’t switch back to version 11 anymore. To do that, you’ll need to uninstall version 12 completley and re-install an older setup package from our website.
Important! Only use beta software if you can deal with occasional computer crashes. Beta means the software is not yet fully tested and may still contain serious bugs that affect its functionality.
When will the beta become a stable release?
As soon as the new version meets our high quality expectations, it will be made available via the regular “Stable” update feed. Expect a release within a few weeks.
