    This beta is available for VERY long time (right now is 36 Technical Preview)..
    It's one of the longest beta program that I participate, but this is going to be very good product (only slight modified from previous version)
    Developers are very conservative so far.
    Only one big change is new version of deepguard..

    I signed up for the beta evaluation, but it wasn't like other programs where you give them your email and it's done. I filled out a ton of forms on a real application. I did less paperwork to get into college, lol. I hope I'm picked!

    It's resource friendly. Indeed after first full scan it's very quiet (cpu usage about 0+/- 2 % on my athlon 64 3800).
    Advanced process monitoring works very good for me.
    And I agree that beta program is not very instinctive.
    GUI is almost the same at it was in previous year.

    For what is the application control if the rules are like a firewall?
    It's the app control like an HIPS?

    They don't call it this way, BUT in the F-Secure's installation folder there is a subfolder named "HIPS".

    I agree and I was quite surprised at the length of the application.

    Thanks.

    Not a chance :D. Sure I'll keep you guys posted and I may try it tonight. I'm mostly interested to hear some good news about "deepguard", to me it is the crown jewel of F-Secure Internet Security. ;).

    Thanks.

    I clicked away the signup process halfway, it is pathetic. So I guess I am 'signed up' but I won't be approved since I didn't fill in some questions. Registering a baby takes less effort.

    The application did have a lot of things in it but none of them required mandatory long responses. It is up to the individual how long they make their responses. I wrote 1 line answers to their questions and have already been picked to help test the beta.

    pretty sure we have Bitdefender to blame for that.

    ok ive done some research of f-secure folder sizes.

    the f-secure program files folder is 415mb
    the aquarius (bitdefender folder) is 313mb

    the f-secure folder under program data is 259mb
    the aquawin32 folder is 214mb

    total install size =674mb
    bitdefender total size =527mb

    size without bitdefender would be: 147mb

    I've stopped beta testing F-Secure until they put in the Firefox 5 compatibility.
