d7x v21.5.31 Release Notes
- Fixed: d7x would re-download some custom apps regardless of whether or not the app was just downloaded, ignoring the custom app’s redownload settings.
- Fixed: d7x was not preventing web browsers from popping up during program uninstalls. This has been fixed so now a program uninstall won’t pop up or wait on a web browser window. As a result of the current configuration, you may (or may not) see a command console window flash briefly when a browser is attempting to start.
- New: Custom App Enhancements, where additional “under the hood” code is applied to certain custom apps to further along automation. Note that Custom App Enhancements can be universally disabled (applies to any/all enhancements for any/all custom apps) in Config > Custom Apps tab > Misc Settings tab, and select “Disable Custom App Enhancements” at the top.
- In this release the ‘Malwarebytes‘ custom app has new behavior: when first installed it should automatically start a scan, but subsequent program launches occur without this automation, allowing the tech to customize the scan. ‘Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit‘ also starts and should start scanning automatically.
- The ‘SuperAntiSpyware‘ install process has been enhanced also, but it will not automatically start a scan when install is complete. One thing I noticed was that during installation SuperAntiSpyware was installing Google Chrome… well I trust the user would install it if one actually wanted it there, or likely it is already installed if so… but in ANY case this install is not desirable, so I made attempts to block the install of Google Chrome during the SuperAntiSpyware installation, and so far in my testing it works like a charm.
- ‘Malwarebytes (Uninstall)‘ and ‘SuperAntiSpyware (Uninstall)‘ should be completely automated (and the trigger to open web browsers with nag pages during their respective uninstalls is fixed, see above.)
- Really minor enhancements include more smooth starting up of a few other custom apps like Adlice Diag and RogueKiller.
- When clicking on the PageFile info at the top of d7x, it should now open System Properties all the way to the advanced Virtual Memory settings.
