    I have been waiting for this for quite awhile now. Not sure if I will test the beta or wait for final thou. the main thing for me is the speed increase.

    I am definitely adding this to my security arsenal...It's quite nice. I like the scan speed, the new features and the new look (Looks more modern).

    Although a nice program, memory usage jumps pretty high during a scan, but of course this is pretty common while doing such a task.

    For a beta, I think it's quite stable.

    I don't have any "infected" PC's to try it out on. Please provide some feedback on how well it cleans an "infected" PC.

    Thank you.

    I hope that Dr.Web will update the scan engine in the Dr.Web LiveCD soon. I like the faster scan speed of Dr.Web CureIt 7.0 Beta.

    Yes. They are real and out there but it takes much more skill to write them. No ordinary programmer could write them and the ones that do are don't use them because it would raise huge flags with the 3 letter agencies. Most probably used by governments against specific national security targets and enemies.

    BTW Dr Web is the beez kneez, they know their stuff. I put them in the same leauge as bitdefender, kaspersky etc

    Please stop spreading FUD and blowing the issue of BIOS malware out of proportions.
    They're not more difficult to detect, they're not more persistent than todays malware/rootkits and the government is not involved with creation and distribution of said malware (or, not more than other government "projects").

    People can read about the Bioskits in these PR driven yet informative analysis:
