I apologize to all the 2.2 users that got automatically updated to 3.0. There was a mistake in our update process yesterday that accidentally pushed 3.0 to you. It's been fixed now and measures were put in place to prevent it happening in the future.

The 2.2 branch is here to stay, so if you'd like to go back, it's simply a matter of re-downloading the 2.2 installer and installing the client like normal.

Seyss: Do you not have one installed? Serves you right, if so. I have Avira installed and I don't see the message you're talking about. If you're downloading files from any p2p service/protocol you should have an antivirus installed. Seems like fair warning for them to include a message as thus.

Edit: Completely wrong thread in mind here, chaps. Apologies.

He's talking about the little icon in the bottom right corner, next to the network status one:


I think there should be an option to remove it.

IMHO, antivirus apps are for nubs. I don't have one installed and I've never had a virus.

And I've been using computers for over 15 years.

I used to use Kaspersky but only for on-demand scanning.

All that proactive bs that runs in the background and checks what you're doing like a nanny is not for me.

Right now, I only use VirusTotal Uploader if I need to scan something I download. Of course I don't download random crap that most people seem to, so I never have a problem. Most trustworthy files have a digital signature nowadays anyway. No need for a lame av app.

Also, Firefox with ABP is all I need in terms of internet security.

My hardware firewall helps a bit as well.
