    Much discussion here lately regarding the upcoming release of KIS7. I've tested it myself, and it looks to be a real winner. What I'd like to know is if anyone has tested KAV7 with any of the popular firewalls. KAV6 had numerous compatibility issues, and I for one am not a big fan of the work around. So, has anyone taken the plunge, and if so what are your findings?

    I ran KAV 7 with Sunbelt Kerio 4. With KAV 7 running, Kerio wouldn't pass the leak test at grc.com. When I uninstalled KAV 7, Kerio passed the leak test. It has something to with KAV some how acting as a proxy I believe? Also, if Kerio is installed on your PC, the KAV 7 install won't work. Kerio has to be removed first. Ran into this with KAV 6 also.
