    Hi

    I bought ESS4 other day 26th Dec 09 paid for the download version and ordered the back up cd also. + 2 computers key... I used the cd to install ESS 4.0 on my mums laptop to my suprize the cd had version 4.3.74 i think it was. So i had to ownload the lastest version 4.0.474 .Anyway I paid for a cd which was pontless after all so put the lastest verion onto a cd the 32 bit and 64bit version as my pc is 64bit not laptop and the cd had 32 and 64bit versions on it yet autorun did not ask for which version..

    £ 4.99 waste of money :(

    Happy with program though

    Hello,

    Almost any program that you purchase a CD for will have a newer build avaliable on the web. The time it takes to have a CD manufactured can span 2 or 3 build releases. The backup CD is just that, a backup. This way if you have internet connection problems, you can install the software in the meantime.

    The point of delivering security software on CD is to give the user an option to install it on computers not connected to the Internet with ease. CDs are not burned in the night and delivered to shops right in the morning, it always takes time to prepare and distribute them. In the meantime, it often happens that a newer version of the security software is already available.

    The situation is similar with operating system installation CDs. Unless you're connected to the Internet you'd be reasonably fine with installing Windows XP without any service pack. Otherwise you should install the latest SP along with all available hotfixes from the net in order to be protected against lately discovered vulnerabilities.
