This service release includes enhanced support for the newest versions of the Windows 10 operating system. Our cloud-based Advanced Active Protection engine, which uses artificial intelligence along with cloud-based threat intelligence, is improved even more with this release to keep you protected from the latest threats.
Due to changes imposed by Facebook, we have removed the Social Watch feature as it would not continue to provide the value provided in the past.
Our VIPRE Privacy Shield product protects your identity by finding personally identifiable information (PII) in your browser's history, temp files, as well as documents stored on your computer. With the depth of search capabilities to make you aware of stored PII data that VIPRE Privacy Shield can provide to you, we have made the tough decision to remove the history cleaner capabilities from VIPRE Advanced Security. If you install VIPRE Privacy Shield, you can now selectively review and delete stored browser data, as well as put personal documents into an encrypted vault on your machine.
In addition to these changes, we have fixed various bugs with this release.
Important: VIPRE Advanced Security for Home uses advanced technologies for today’s newer operating systems and does not install on Windows XP or Vista.

Do not upgrade directly from 10.3 to 11.0.5. Instead, upgrade to 18.104.22.168 before upgrading to the beta build.
This happens because VIPRE requires .NET 4.6 to run. On some computers, Windows must be updated before .NET 4.6 can be installed.
To install .NET 4.6 on Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2, you must first run Windows Update and patch your PC.

Eric, generally, the only thing that will cause this significant a difference in scan times is if something else is using resources on the system. Things like Windows Updates or backup software may use a lot of resources which leaves VIPRE with less resources to scan which can cause scans to take longer. Do you have any other software set to run or do maintenance overnight?
No, I do both Windows updates and backups manually and very rarely.
Windows updated are done when prompted very early in the day and completed then.
Backups are done when I think about it about once every 2 months!
