    For Win XP:
    After AVG is uninstalled, I suggest you first: a) delete all files inside Windows 'temp' folder. b) use the 'search' function to find all avg related files/folders and delete them, then empty recycle bin. c) run a regcleaner (i recommend macecraft's regsupreme). d) reboot. e) stop the WindowsManagementInstrumentation service (AdministrativeTools/Services), stop WMI service and accept to stop the other services related to it as well. Close this 'services' window and then delete all stuff inside 'repository' folder: C:\Windows\System32\wbem\repository.
    Reboot and try installing Kaspersky again.

    Nope.;)
    Even though the GUI looks different and maybe a little scary, the reality is, the guts still remained the same as far as setting up. The GUI has the play toys.;)

    I would disagree slightly with your observation in that the GUI looks "maybe a little scary" in that there has been a lot of debate amongst the beta testers as to what it should look like...and The Lab listened. IMHO the aim was to make functionality accessible withoput making the GUI look too clinical. But offe course that is a matter of taste and no doubt some will love it, some won't care and some will hate it. C'est la vie.

    As to "the guts still remained the same as far as setting up" I think that there are some huge differences especially in the area of the HIPS function & rules which are essentially the core...and in all honesty I think will take some getting used to...but this is the important bit...only if the user wants to...as you really do not have to delve under the covers with this version as it is so automatic.

    However, in the final analysis IMHO, Kaspersky are on to a winner here and have produced a superb suite...only time will tell if it is destined to be the best of breed.;)

    what I am trying to say, just as some high levels at Kas are saying, the current user is going to upgrade and basically say,"Holy Sh#t Batman."

    They are going to be a tad overwhelmed. It is not your normal upgrade but more of a new boob job. The point is to ensure that everyone knows that even though changes have happened, if you take a little time, it is a piece of cake.

    they enhanced the heuristics of 2009 and added HIPS. Now you dont need 10 different products. One does it all. I am still testing and it has held up great to regular,zero day and others yet to be mentioned, malware. I am still waiting on 2 samples from China. Nothing has gotten by it. Oh and some pretty nasty rootkits.

    Does anyone know how to set the firewall to be stealthed.

    Ran shieldsup with default settings and it reported that
    the ports were either stealthed or closed. (most reported
    as being closed)

    Thanks

    in firewall/settings/network packages:
    any incoming TCP streams blocked
    any incoming UDP streams blocked

    This made it for me...
