    Yes, it is a unimportant interface! than next, that's worse. In 2.7 is better interface, 3.0 is worse. In 4.0 is more worse. :(.

    To be honest I don't really see a difference and couldn't care. But I know why it was done t give the customer the "new" feeling. Most software companies do it, and it doesn't bother me unless they make it worse. I disagree that it is worse.

    4.0 interface goes backwards compared to 3.0 interface

    the GUI in v3 beta was different to the final version, the final version was much better. So what you see now is likely not what you will see in later betas, RCs or the final release.

    in beta, version 3 looked like this...

    it was a good, if add active functions to sysinspector: kill process, include off the keys of autorun and others.

    but the way, interface of 3.0 betas imperceptible different from final release 3.0. ( So clumsy pictures, exept "Setup" and "Protection Status".)

    stop worrying about GUI & skinability, worry about detection & cleaning, keep you eye on what an AV is suppose to do not how pleasing it looks...

    I agree for the most part. I think it looks fine and it will most likely change by the final as was already mentioned. Detection and cleaning is the only real reason for running it at all though. If it is attractive, then that is a bonus.

    It's all a matter of taste. I like the current beta. A nicer interface will help it sell to non-geeks, but if I were purchasing based on a shiny interface I would buy Norton along with the other sheeple. I prefer something that gives me more control. I'd be more than happy for an awesome interface, but at a lower priority than functionality. That was a lot of my complaint with v3. It looked cool, but had a lot of other issues. I have hope for v4, I guess we'll see. Not disagreeing with you, it's just not the highest priority, especially if the interface is being done by the same programmers that are working on the code underneath. I want it to work well, else there are too many alternatives. I prefer not to go there, but since this is in beta we have the opportunity to push them to make the best product possible. And if that includes the ultimate attractive interface, great, towards the end when the other stuff is done. But again, I like it as is.

    Hello,

    If you want to use the text interface, you can try pressing Ctrl-G in the main window to toggle it on and off.

    Regards,

    I know a lot of our blind and visually impaired customers are eagerly awaiting version 4.0 because of the ability to turn off the GUI, thus enabling the program to be compatible with reading windows browers again.

    Hello,

    Please let your customers know that the text mode in the 4.0 Public Beta 1 is not complete. That said, any feedback they would care to provide would be most welcome.

    Regards,

    Please revert back to the clean and nice interface of version 3 or 2. What was shown in the first screenshot of 3.0 would be ideal. It was really nice, better than the final version. Please take this into consideration. Thanks!

    It looks just as functional as the 3.0 interface and is more in line with the GUI cues of Vista. I don't really see what the problem is here.

    Basically the main difference is in the banner. The rest is almost the same as 3 except that the banner bleeds into it. I like the V4 design.
