What... did you do to my beautiful tray icon?

...did you do to my beautiful tray icon?

 

Just upgraded KIS to 19.0.0.1088(c) and now have a very 'unimportant' looking green icon sitting in my tray. Looks a bit cheap compared to the rest. Perhaps the next update can bring something more impressive with it?

I am sure this change comes from the Marketing/PR side of the business. OUT with the beautiful red and black K that everyone knows and IN with a bland green shield with a check-mark.

This way, no one will connect the new Kaspersky with the old Kaspersky..... or at least that's what they are counting on.:rolleyes:

As long as they don't mess with the world class protection engine, I can live with that. But like you, I miss the good old in your face K.:)

Could be that if the GCHQ snoops around on my computers they miss it :rolleyes: But thanks to Kaspersky protection they won't even make it on my machines. :P

A few years ago, it was mentioned that there will be different tray icons for different Kaspersky products, so tech support can tell from a screenshot what product the person has.

More recently it was mentioned that the new tray icon conforms to Windows 10 some sort of requirements. 

The Russian Fan Club forum has a posting for manually replacing the icon with old file, but the link and instructions are not with me at the moment.

Same with me with the green umbrella and the loud, screeching pig squeal detection sound. I used to change files to bring them back, but higher callings confront me. :)
