Does this improvement enable faster speed in real-time scanner (standard shield)?

It's quite strange that I've noticed AVG's on-demand scanning speed usually slower than avast! but AVG is a bit faster than avast! in real-time scanner, at least on my machine.

I know, most Trojans now have the "can-be-repaired" flag set (incorrectly). This will be fixed soon but shouldn't really be a problem...

I think it's a problem when the repair buttom is AVAILABLE, you click it and the system answer it has been processed CORRECTLY.
After that you realise NOTHING was done or repaired. This is a problem: the user is not corrected informed and don't know he/she could be infected yet  :P

No difference in scan speed for me on a Standard Scan without archives

Strange, for me, speed is much better now  ::)

 :) I finally responded to the green "alert" to install the
     v 739 on Dec 9, but did NOT get an auto update of
     550-0 and had to manually get it; I am on Dialup and
     wondered if my Win XP is experiencing the "unable to
     auto update" syndrome that many have been
     experiencing !? My usual protocol is to remove, including
     uninstalling an "old" version, then download & install
     the new version, but because 550-0 was unusually
     large, will this not be necessary !?

I'm on dial-up and no problem of being notified of the 0550-0 VPS update. If you were experiencing any auto update problems then you would have seen it soon after Dec 9 when you updated to 4.6.739.

You shouldn't need to uninstall "old version" (what ever that means VPS or Program) after an auto update, that would kind of make the auto update meaningless.

Well, I think not. The update was ok and I haven't troubles with auto updates since then. I mean, no errors.
We need to wait a 'real' update as we stay at 0550-0 yet.
