    The Dr.Web LiveCD has a new GUI and now has a Quarantine option. I am guessing that the change was made around January 18, 2011 (based on the Dr.Web LiveCD pdf manual file date).

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=293795

    Does anyone have any experiences that they would like to share concerning the new version of the Dr.Web LiveCD?

    The new GUI is shown on page 12 of the Dr.Web LiveCD pdf manual.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Works fine for me, but I don't really like the green blur.

    I did a comparison of scan times of the System Partition of my newest PC (Windows XP Pro 32 bit)(Times are rounded to the nearest minute.).

    Dr.Web LiveCD – 143 minutes
    AVIRA RescueCD – 11 minutes
    ESET NOD32 v4.x – 10 minutes
    MBAM – 11 minutes
    SAS Free – 13 minutes
    Emsisoft Emergency Kit – 25 minutes

    And how many objects (not files) has been tested?
    The new scanner with an increased several times scanning rate of clean files (based on old architecture) is expected around March - April.
    But it is already developed and is in alpha testing a brand new scanner is based on the new architecture.

    So Dr.Web will release new scanner with old architecture, and later another scanner with new architecture?

    What is the difference between these architectures if the new scanner with old architecture already has increased scanning speed for clean files?

    Yes, but the scanner with new architecture becomes accessible is yet not fast. ;)

    We do not know anything about the new architecture, but we know for certain that the new scanner is based on the old architecture, scans 5-10 times faster. :)

    I did test the beta-version some time ago.

    Scan time reduced from 2 hours 40 minutes to 54 minutes.
