As I mentioned in Post #1/#4 it scans by design and your protection is not effected.
I passed the questions onto our tech and he passed them up the line to the Developers, Some things I learned
1 The new engine will only scan certain files when accessed. Though Full scan scans the same file types it cannot scan all files as the other types are not prone to virus payloads. they are looking at adding more info to the FAQ
2. The locking up is being looked into when i hear back I will update here.
I have just tried to do a full scan again today and it does not complete the scan at all. It scanned 65k files the wheel is spinning and spinning and going nowhere the counter is on 1%. Nothing to say the scan is complete or anything. I have not been able to complete a scan yet.
I have to say that releasing this as buggy as it is to the public in this state is bad.
It only locks up for a few minutes on My PC. As I said Development have been informed and are too look into it. i will recheck My full scan today.
It just stalls on mine sort of gets stuck.

Peacekeeper I but the version in the first post of this thread and no my interface is green
Sorry too busy here to check. I am running a "full" scan at this time with blue interface. Seems to be running fine
Locked up at 98% for 45 minutes. Passed this onto those who need to know.
