Improvements: EXTRACTED
3. Microsoft Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 now identified correctly in scan logs
5. Better compatibility with many other security products in realtime


Must say these are fantastic. No more worries of having to give permission to have MBAM work side by side with KIS. And to have it properly interact with 8 and IE10 (DA!), what took sooooooooooooo long, Mindblower!
