    I use Outlook express 6 to check my hotmail account and I noticed by looking at the log that NAV '02 was not scanning the messages.   Does any AV scan http email?

    NAV would only emails which are transfered via pop3 protocoll. Kaspersky Anti Virus (KAV) scans emails in a different way. KAV scans the email database files of Outlook (Express).

    I've been wanting to try KAV but I heard that it slows down your machine a bunch.   I don't have the fastest machine so I was waiting for them to optimise it some more.   Have they fixed the speed issue yet?

    Thanks for the reply wizard.

    I got pretty fast computer and KAV 4.0 still slows it down. I would recommend you to wait till they get this issue right.  :-/

    For speed issues try to use KAV 3.5. I think http://www.avp.ch offers it this still for download. There are no differences in detection rates between KAV 4.0 and KAV 3.5. KAV 3.5 also works with a key file for later versions. As Kaspersky offers one year licence you can update/upgrade (or even downgrade) in this time periot for free.
