    Been useing it for a few days now.No problems at all.Useing this setup my computer has never run faster.Full stealth on shields up.Now i have a problem because i was happy with the free antivirus,but i am that pleased with this i will have to pay because i want this when it comes out.Firewall is a bit too simple at the moment in expert mode but very easy to use,set to max and reply to allow ,allow and remember or deny,like zone alarm.

    Nice and simple! I wonder whether this will be a free or paid upgrade to present Avira Premium users?

    Is this the start of a new Avira Internet Suite? :doubt:

    I hope the suite is better than the firewall :doubt:
    Firewall isn't great and needs ALOT of work.

    Before anyone asks, I am using the latest BOClean so I do not know why the beta reported BOClean 4.20! o_O

    Could you expand upon what you find lacking with the firewall?

    I've seen this also, must be a small "bug" or maybe the updater in BOClean is 100% the same as in 4.20...............including the designation.:)

    I dont think the firewall will run on 98/se/me so that ones out ,and personally (just my opinion) i cant see avira supporting pre xp systems for that much longer either...at least not with premium versions.

    Is this version with Firewall a free or paid upgrade for current AntiVir Premium users?

    I had signed up but after I logged in and click Downloads there was nothing. I was wondering if this was normal or not.

    You should have received 2 emails;

    1. Which confirms/validates your registration.

    2. Approval of your request.

    Then you should be able to download.

    Thanks Blackcat. I got (1) but not (2) and I did understand they might not approve all applicants.

    I signed up and grabbed the firewall premium edition. This is a real nice firewall in it, I like it.

    Definitely a nice perk for Premium Owners when it launches!

    The second email comes about a day after the first one so don't give up hope yet.

    well, it's indeed very good, but the scanner is not so fast, and morelikely when you scan a large collection of infected files and choose to delete all files, it scans very slow. :(

    Scanned my C:\ disk in less than 4 minutes.......went like crazy and I have no infected files to scan, so I won't be able to judge that! I have the file scanner configured to scan 'Use smart extensions', so.....I'll do another scan later when configured to scan 'all files'. But, compared to other beta and non-beta products, I'm impressed so far. I would go for this program a full 100%, compared to F-Prot Beta!

    This is a screendump from c:\ and has scanned with 'all files' configuration. Looks really 'speedy' to me!!!!

    wow...only 6 minutes and 51 sec :eek: It is speedy.... did you use Photoshop for editing? :D joking. :p For me it is slower... :(

    EDIT: I"ve just performed a scan and took 8:52 . :D not so slow as I thought. :p

    It all depends on the size and usage of your disk. How many files etc. etc. Did you also scan 'all files'?
