    I have simply disabled my present AV and I see this message on setup.

    Do we need to completely uninstall our primary AV?

    I did try out the previous German beta but this was completely uninstalled.

    If you have AntiVir 6 installed before, you need to uninstall it. You might want to save ANTIVIR0.VDF - ANTIVIR3.VDF and restore them later when you switch back to AV6.

    Very modern GUI and update speed was very impressive this time compared to the Classic version. But this was on a fast cable connection here at work.

    Servers responded immediately. Stefan are these servers different to the "Classic" servers?

    Guard has a relatively large footprint of over 30MB VM. But I have 2GB RAM on this machine so RTM seems very light.

    Extended threat categories. Also has a very extensive Help-File.

    All in all a very impressive package on the surface, particularly with incremental updating and the seemingly better Server response.

    I will have to ask some guys in the Windows team which update servers this version is using - but as it is the Premium beta I would guess it's the Premium servers. Which means of course they are faster than the AV Classic servers.

    Home on the range.
    :) O.k., I may just do this, and I sure hope you are correct about the server(s), because I do not want to have to start blasting away again.

    Thanks

    I see this checkbox "scans memory". Does AntiVir use a file scanner for memory scanning?

    Maybe you should be a tester. Who knows you might get a free licence at the end. ;)

    A temporary license file can be downloaded that is valid until Dec. 6th.
    The Classic free version will still be available.

    Differences include;

    " In comparison with the AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic (freeware), the Premium-version provides more comfort amongst others: * Pop3 scanner (mail Guard) * Modern graphic surface * Fully automated update function * Exclusive download server * Scan function for lists and folders * Telephone support ( with costs) * License manager"
    Depending on the program, Beta testers can be rewarded with free licenses.

    It could be worth a lot to Antivir to advertise "Tested by Wildman." ;) :D
