Well, as I said, it's hard to estimate when you discover problems...
Personally, I hope it will be released in the beginning of Septemer (but I'd rather wait what Vlk says about it).

igor
The impatience of youth!
Don't bow to peer pressure like Microsoft did with SP2.
We'll wait till it's right. :)

Good morning, :)
I guess I missed something back a few months ago; just wondering why we are so eagerly waiting for version 4.5?

Bob, have you had any problems with SP2? I'm waiting as the article suggested, for a month. I am keeping everything updated, and I'm happy! :D

Any idea when it will be available as a BETA to test or when it will be released? When this happens how soon will BART CD 2.0 or ADNM?

This should be clarified during this week (when we're finally back from the vacations...).

Thanks

2 Questions

1) will the script blocker work for Morzilla firefox 0.9.3 (currently don't seem to).

2) Will it fully scan the registry for viruses, like some spywere programs do.
As when i deleated a worm recently i noticed it left behind a registry key so it would still try to start the now non-exsistent worm up on boot. All i would get is an error.

1) No and I don't think it ever will. There's just no applicable interface to use.
2) Yes. Well not fully scan the registry but be much smarter :)

All I could request is that Avast 4.5 is an equal regarding resource-usage like the current version! (take care of people who have a non-new-pc)  ;D

I second that (I use a 300 MHz celeron pc  :-[ )
