    The latest beta is working very well for me. The need for repeated scans seems to be finally gone!

    Do you have the habit of cleaning your registry?

    Well trust and trust, you can't and shouldn't trust any of them to 100%, But you can use CCleaner wich IMO is one of the safest, if not the safest, but before you delete anything check a second time before you push the button, CC have never caused problems for me, and it doesn't digg itself to the basement like some other cleaners, wich in return makes it a little "safer" to use so to speak. Since the deeper they go the more they will find and possible find something that shouldn't be deleted.

    Though, I don't think a registry cleaner will help you in this case :)

    Ok, but I wasn't going to suggest you use one, I was trying to see if maybe that was the cause, too much registry cleaning can kill the OS. I don't recommend it.

    If your system is behaving erratically only with Baidu, then try contacting their support, they're usually very helpful. If it's a generalized problem then I would recommend backing up your data and doing a clean install of the OS.

    Speaking of cleaners...

    Auslogics is not a bad one but sometimes you have to be very careful,it detected 360 IS registry as a junk registry here,dont forget to create regular restore points and backing registry up before messing around :)

    The only thing is annoying about them is that they trick you with fake checks into downloading their boot speed and other unwanted junk :doubt:

    So,if you arent a geek or dont have much knowledge about registry,DONT use cleaners or tell someone else who knows what he is doing to do the job up for you.

    if 360IS (or any other security software) give permission to auslogics for delete its own registry key, if it dont protect itself, that is laughable thing for security software.

    Are you sure it is a false positive, I seem to remember a registry cleaner picking up a reference to a non existent exe file in the 360 folder under Program Files. This was not a false positive as the exe file did not exist.

    But, with regards to registry cleaners, it's best to avoid them altogether due to fact they do not work. 99.9% of so called registry errors are harmless and there is no need to remove them, and it is in fact pointless to remove them as removing them won't fix any errors, crashes or performance issues. It may seem nice to have a clean registry, but it is pointless.

    A note about registry: it is huge. When you clean the registry, it's like cleaning a house and leaving the rest of the country alone. If you remove thousands of entries, the registry sill won't get significantly smaller. Modern versions of Windows take good care of the registry by themselves.

    And while the gains are questionable or just so insignificant, the possible problems with this kind of thing are very vast. It's a near-sure way to get a headache.

    I recommend no one messes with the registry, unless they really know what they are doing, and if so proceed manually. I used to use and even recommend registry cleaners. But experience has taught me otherwise. A system is more reliable when you leave the registry alone — with very rare exceptions.

    Very sound advice.

    Once I removed around 10,000 registry errors (yes ten thousand) with various registry cleaners, being very careful to use ones which don't give false positives, or do a specific scan for empty registry keys. After cleaning the registry and then doing a registry defrag, after rebooting I could not notice even the slightest improvement from cleaning the registry - my computer appeared to be running exactly as it was before removing the 10,000 registry "errors."

    Interesting experience. Can you specify the Windows version?

    It was Windows 7. The result may have been different under Windows 95/98 or ME - on those OSes there may been a noticeable speed increase.

    Back to Baidu.
    Version 3.6.1.40543 Beta seems to be updating fine, and running without any problem here. (Win 7 64 bit)
    Today updated the Avira to 7.11.96.230

    That's a rather old Avira virus definition according to this link...
    http://www.avira.com/en/support-vdf-qa-realtime-status

    Very old, as a matter of fact.

    You're a loyal soul, ghodgson. I will give you that. You've stuck with Baidu for quite a while now, if I recall correctly.

    Later...

    here the same. the new 3.6 Beta feels more stable than the actual stable 3.4 version. But avira is still updated once a week ... but sometimes i got a 2-3 avira updates per week and not only on wednesday. but for me that is ok, so far the cloud is always up to date

    Yes you're quite correct :) , I've been persevering with it for about 3 months now. I tried Qihu 360 for a short while which I liked very much but it was leaving registry keys open all over the place and causing shut down problems. I informed Qihu about it and they said they would fix it -- but since not a word. Hence I returned to Baidu, which works well for me and very light. Slowly Baidu seem to be getting their act together and Bav is certainly far better than it was a month ago. Plus Baidu's help and response to my e mails has been first class. For a free product I can't complain.
    I followed your link for the Avira updates and they are 2 weeks old, but I'm not too worried about that. It would be nice to have Avira updates everyday but maybe someday as it evolves.

    Thanks,

    For some reason this free AV looks more trustworthy than Qihoo.
