    Just another thing...

    How do I know what build I´m using of KAV 2006 beta? The release notes shows Kaspersky Internet Security 2006 (Beta) build 6.0.14.203 (16.09.2005)

    Is this the latest version? I´ve just downloaded KAV beta from KAV beta server...

    Ing,

    Select the Service section and the desired information pops up on the right hand side. See screenshot below.

    Mine shows 6.0.15.222

    How can I update it? I´ve downloaded this beta version today, 1h ago... why mine is not 6.0.15.224?

    Ing,

    I assume you downloaded the public beta from here.

    Links to "not fully tested" interim builds are provided in the KIS/KAV 2006 forum run by KL. The latest interim build is 225, a link is available here, see post #6.

    Thanks blue.

    But should I use the public beta or the 225 version?

    If your middle name is "Dangerous" use the 225 version.

    It's your choice.

    Personally, I'm sticking with the public beta. (But will update as there are more public betas released)

    Ing,

    I absolutely agree with Kye-U on this. I've seen some minor crash issues with builds 224 and 225 that did not occur with 222/223. While the impact is minor on my system, one always must consider an unfortunate conspiracy of woe falling upon you to yield a major problem.

    These builds are clearly labeled as not completely tested, even with that proviso, my own feeling is that they are coming a bit too fast for adequate internal stress testing. Presumably most changes are minor in nature which mitigates the risks. If they were to ask my opinion, I'd personally recommend scheduled interim builds with a frequency of no more than 1/week or longer except in the case of significant new problems.

    ROFL. I love your choice of words here Blue. The beta testers credo, so to speak. But one should take them quite seriously as nasty things can happen, and you should always have a fall back contingincy. For example going from 224 to 225 on KAV2006, totally shut down any network connectivity on my computer. I await 226.
