UVK 7.9:

v7.9.4.0 Release date: June 27 2016

  Fixed wrong behaviour after clicking the Stop monitoring button, when running third party apps, in the System repair section. 

  Updated behaviour when running third party apps, in the System repair section: If a third party app reboots the computer, logs from that app are collected after reboot.

  Updated behavior: UVK no longer asks for passwrod when continuing repair operations, even if the running protection password is enabled.

  Added a new item to the Smart uninstaller's right-click menu: Report as unwanted program. This new option allows you to help us improve the Ultra Adware Killer's dataset by reporting malicious and unwanted programs that are currently not being detected by UAK.

  Added a new Maintenance action to the System repair list: Clear Quick Access and Jump Lists. This new fix removes all items in the Quick access, and Jump lists, on the Start menu and taskbar.

  Added a new Pre-repair action to the System repair list: Disable the User Account Control. This new option allows you to disable the UAC during the repair operation. The UAC can be automatically re-enabled unce the repair operation os complete with the new Enable the User Account Control post-repair option.

  Added a new Pre-repair action to the System repair list: Enable the legacy (F8) boot menu. This new option allows you to enable the old boot menu, activated by pressing F8. Obviously this fix only works on Windows 8 or higher.

  Added a new fix to the System repair and optimization group of the System repair list: Start menu troubleshooter. This fix downloads the same named troubleshooter from Microsoft.com and executes it, troubleshooting problems related to the Start Menu and Cortana.

  Added a new fix to the System repair and optimization group of the System repair list: Windows store apps troubleshooter. This fix downloads the same named troubleshooter from Microsoft.com and executes it, troubleshooting problems related to the modern apps and the Windows store.

  Added a new fix to the System repair and optimization group of the System repair list: Windows update troubleshooter. This fix downloads the same named troubleshooter from Microsoft.com and executes it, troubleshooting problems related to Windows Update.

  Added a new Post repair action to the System repair list: Restore the previous UAC state. This new option will restores the User Account Control (UAC) state it had before the current repair operation, is case you used the new Disable the User Account Control fix.

  Added a new Post repair action to the System repair list: Restore the standard boot menu. This new option will restore the standard boot menu in Windows 8, 8.1 and 10, eventually removing the old F8 boot menu, if it was previously enabled.

  Added a new Post repair action to the System repair list: Enable the User Account Control. This new option will restore the User Account Control (UAC) enabled state.

  Imporoved and debugged the Log analyzer.

  Other minor bug fixes and improvements.

 

 

v7.9.1.0 Release date: June 10 2016

  Improved the List affected files feature of the Execute prevent section. Replaced the confirmation dialog boxes with a text label and a checkbox in the status area.

  Other bug fixes and improvements.

 

v7.9.0.0 Release date: June 07 2016

  Fixed bug: The System immunization feature was triggering Windows 10 to reset the default apps.

  Fixed bug: UVK was not uploading files to VirusTotal in some cases, even if that option was enabled.

  Fixed bug: UVK was not exporting / importing the custom third party directory from UVKSettings.ini. 

  Fixed other minor bugs.

  Added a new item to the System repair list: Prevent resetting default apps. Because Windows 10 keeps periodically resetting the file association, this new tool will fix that issue by preventing some built-in apps such as Microsoft Edge or Photos to be set as the default apps.

  Bundled the Prevent resetting default apps feature mentioned above to the Configure Immunization app that's left beyond uninstall. This way users can also setup the blocked built-in apps after uninstalling the product.
