It's what I would have expected as well. It can't be beyond the ability of the AV vendors to accept, in a trusted way, a list of sha1 hashes of these files every time they are updated and build that in instead.
e.g. This file something.exe is in my exclusion list, I will calculate the hash of it and compare it to what I have in my database.
I have Sync in my Kuga, it's awful in terms of UX - nothing is properly integrated or even logical. Everyone who tries to uses it twiddles the big dial to try and navigate the menus or use the keyboard - nope, that just does the volume, nothing else. You have to use cursor keys to navigate.
The controls on the steering wheel just do the tiny little screen in front of you, they control nothing on the main console unit - so you have to lean over a bit and sod about with the cursor keys on the dial.
They can't have done any real user testing, or if they did it was with people who hadn't even seen a CD player let alone in-car entertainment so told them everything was fantastic.
Never had the problems they've listed with it in my 2013 Kuga. Works with all phones I've tried it with. It has obviously been designed by 3 or 4 people working separately and with no UI design experience, but that's another issue. You'd think when you're doing sat nav/menus etc. that the rotary dial would move up and down, but no it does volume all the time. You can't scroll menus from the controls on the steering wheel either, they just do the menus on main instrument display. Stupid.
Windows doesn't need re-installing every six months either. I'm sat posting this comment from a machine that was last formatted over a year ago, installed with Windows XP and has since had a Vista Upgrade install done on it as well and it's working perfectly fine (and no, I'm not some Windows zealot either, I spend most of my day working with Linux).
