with a recent thread on truprevent, i decided to go to the panda site. low and behold, the 2006 version was available, so i downloaded the trial. to be safe, i then used ATI to image my drive. afterwards i proceeded with the install. it went much better than my experience with the 2005 version. it didnt give an errors and no complaints of nod32. then i rebooted. the startup of windows xp seemed a bit slow but i knew it was only cuz of truprevent. however, i then realized not all of my programs were loading into teh systray. proxomitron gave out an error of socket initiation or something so i rebooted. windows didnt reboot so i just pressed teh power button. this time windows loaded fine tho look n stop gave numerous alerts for all the panda processes and dlls. panda didnt break my connection, so im happy for that. i think its much improved however it wont update, i guess its a new limitation of the trial? the memory usage doesnt seem to be any less. between "working set" and "private bytes" all the panda processes combined use liek 100mb. not bad perhaps? http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/8094/panda7zn.jpg status (main screen) http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/7875/panda12un.jpg settings http://img112.imageshack.us/img112/276/panda23br.jpg report http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/5264/panda34ys.jpg tools services http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/8901/panda44de.jpg services http://img131.imageshack.us/img131/3389/panda58ng.jpg the settings and tools section have lots more items to explore, but hopefully the previous screenshots are enough EDIT: 30 mins after posting, truprevent decides to update. im glad but i wish it would done so when i first tried updating it.
