    Thank you,

    Istreams uses a NTFS feature allowing additional data streams to be attached to files on xp and w2k. Some people don't like it because it interfears with one of the trojan scanners and causes fragmentation of a little used system restore file on XP.

    The advantage is it speeds up scanning considerably, especially after the application has been installed for about 2 weeks.

    This version runs slower than the previous (5.0.156). I noticed that when using windows explorer. It takes more time for the contents of the directories to appear

    There must be some kind of conflict, because on my computer it's noticely faster than .156 both real-time and on-demand. :)

    The strange is that the slowdown of opening the folders only happens the first time i open them. After the first time, even i shutdown the computer exploring the folder is as fast as it should be

    I don't use Pro and it's been a month or so since i last used personal 4.5 (104), but at that time i thought 4.5 and 5.0 was pretty equal in terms of speed with 5.0 probably a little faster, the big difference for me is that i don't have to exclude and tweake the settings in 5.0 to get speed (real-time) it's just there. The on-demand scanner in v5.0.227 is considrably faster, down to around 7-8 minutes for a full scan (72000 files) so yes, i would say that 5.0 is faster on my system. :)

    The new release of KAV 5 seems to be running good for me with the exception of this problem... Anyone else having this problem too?

    I would like to try the new Personal edition. However, I have already installed the KAV Pers Pro 5 edition. I cannot uninstall it since the uninstaller always crashes. I have also tried to manually remove KAV Pers Pro 5 but to no avail: the new KAV Personal edition still asks me to uninstall the Pro version prior to the installation of the new version.

    Now I have installed the Pro version again although I am not entirely happy with it. Can someone please help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    If a repeat of the install/uninstall cycle will not work, try this free program to monitor the install of KAV Pro again;

    Total Uninstall; http://www.martau.com/ then I would use a good registry cleaner ( Regcleaner/RegSupreme ) to ensure you have removed all of the debris of the Pro version before you try the Personal Edition.

    Good Luck.

    I ran into the problem with Sygate and could never get it to work. The system was completely disconnected from the internet with an error statement "unable to locate IP address".After removing Sygate and reinstalling 5.0.227 everything worked fine and it now runs very well with the Kaspersky Firewall. I havent tried it with any other FW with it.

    I have the same problem. I found a compromise (not really a "work-around"): install KAV 5.0.227 not with default setting, but without network protection. Then one of the new features of KAV is disabled and KAV complains "Real-time protection is not entirely enabled." but at least KAV works together with Sygate Personal Firewall.

    I had a friendly discussion with a support engineer from Kaspersky Lab to nail down the problem and actually they are investigating this issue. Hope to hear from them soon.

    The ability to disable the I streams function during program installation should be labeled a lot clearer than it is.

    There is a box that you can check that has something next to it that says basically "run program with recommended settings"..............how is anyone supposed to know that this is the damn option to turn off the freaking I streams crapo_O??
