I just gave a few profiles a quick sweep with beta 5 and look what came up! Names have been changed to protect the guilty. :D

That's the keyword detection in action there, picking up on "proxy", "hack" and "virus". Two clicks and they were all nicely sitting in quarantine. :)
Ooh.. this looks good... (runs to download site..)
Just tried this. I found a problem. I get a 'Proxy authentication required' error when I try and update the definitions. :(
I get the same thing :(

mines still scanning. Up to sixth formers though :D
Fantastic to hear it's working well for most of you! For people with proxy errors, don't worry for the moment, you do have the latest definitions and I'll look into it. Do you run a proxy server locally and if so, what kind?
Yer its working fine here. Check defintions seems to work "no update is necessary":)
Rescanned after deletion and there all gone :D All the games, WAVS, Vids.. the lot :D
Proxy server is Squid running with NTLM transparent authentication. There's also dansguardian running with passthru NTLM authentication support.
Squid supports basic authentication if NTLM fails for some reason though.
Okay, I'll see if there's an option in the .net framework that controls the authentication type. We use an RM Smartcache here which is loosely Squid-based, I think.

If you're seeing the "proxy authentication required" error, could you post the following here:
* The version of System.deployment.dll that you have installed. If it's below 2.0.50727.103, it may be the cause of the problems.
* Whether you're running the program locally or from a network share
* When the error occurs. I believe I'm right in thinking that it's when you press the "Check updates" button.
I think it's a fairly simple problem but I need to know a little more about what exactly triggers it. I'll roll the fix into beta 6.
