    Thanks for the heads-up. At $24.99, I just HAD to (and did) order KAV 5.0 Personal via download for myself from Newegg a few mintues ago. I will post an update to this thread to let you guys know how the ordering process worked for me.

    Does anyone know if you purchase this download if you will get a free upgrade to the 2006 version when it comes out?

    To quote from Kaspersky's website

    The full text about the KIS/KAV 2006 beta release can be found at

    So I assume then you get the upgrade regardless of which vendor you purchase the software from.

    I would imagine it's always around this sort of price. BTW, you can also get the Kaspersky Personal Security Suite for $35.91, also from NewEgg, which would allow you to upgrade to KIS (with it's much improved firewall component, Anti-Hacker), Anti-Spy and Anti-Spam.

    While I'm not that interested in the last two myself, I consider the new Anti-Hacker to be one of the best on the market now. It passes ALL known leaktests.

    You are correct that the PD module provides protection from a lot of the leaktests, although not all.

    My original comment was based on the fact that the AH module has been greatly improved since the current release version (1.8, I believe), and now stops more than the previous version. It is also very configurable. If you think anything is missing from it, just mention it on the Kaspersky beta forum since the developer's seem extremely keen on listening to the users, and acting on those comments.

    Stumbled across this thread looking for something else so thanks for the link, never noticed before that newegg sold KAV. :)

    One question...would anyone know if I purchased this would the key be good for a year from the purchase date or a year from installing KAV and using the key for the first time?

    Only reason I ask is because I still have about 3 months left on my GDATA AVK license but will be switching, and I will be doing some other shopping at newegg in the next week or two. I wouldn't mind getting this while I was already there to use later unless the key starts right from the purchase date, otherwise I'll just wait. Would anyone have any info on this?

    Thanks

    The licence would run from the date of purchase, not from when it is first used.

    NewEgg, as usual, rocks :) I actually didn't notice KAV being sold there before either.. great deal, especially with the upgrade to 2006. I was actually very impressed with KIS2006, great behavior blocking package with AV, FW, and anti-spam built in. Still not as fast as NOD32, but definitely very light on resources (not the same thing). It's got a few quirks to be worked out yet, but I've pretty much decided that it's going on my secondary system when it's done.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I thought that may be the case. I'll probably end up picking it up anyway and making the switch a little early.:)

    And your right Notok, newegg does rock. Always enjoy giving them my money.:p

    Any link to NewEgg no longer works for me. Have they been shut down or something?

    It appears to be listed at $44.99 now, guess the deal is over.
