Previously, the protection algorithm was hard-coded into the Windows agent and it was called synchronously. Such approach may lead to some rare but important problems, because the start of the Windows agent service required a lot of time and Windows service manager may not accept this delay.

Since this release Windows agent uses batch script, which runs in a separate and independent process. This script provides the identical functionality as before, but it doesn't interfere with Windows agent service thus solving the problem with delay.
