    It will update automatically when it is released or it will be downloaded if you enable "Download Beta Updates" option.

    I've been using it since yesterday evening.
    On my P-4 machine, web access and page rendering are noticeable slower than without it; more performance impact than either Avast 5 or Avira 10 AVs.

    Following install, you are given the choice of a three day trial, 30 days if you "register", or to add a previously purchased license key.
    I chose the three day trial but get a "buy now" nag screen every time I boot.

    All program modules are fully active with the three day trial option and configuration is pretty much identical to version 4.5

    I'm going to uninstall it; too much negative with the slowdown and completely unnecessary nag screen.
    Only a few moments ago, I got another "buy now" nag screen" pop-up while writing this post.

    Normally I'm a big fan of Emsisoft/A-Squared products, but not in this case.

    No thanks. :thumbd:

    The only slow down I had ever had was either running a full scan or when its updating a large download.

    A direct link to the latest beta setup is available on our download page too:
    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/download/

    @wtsinnc: If you select "Freeware License" on the 'nagscreen' (we call it trial notify screen), you'll never see that dialog again. Same if you enter a valid full license of course.
