    Yes, thanks Don for the heads up :cool:

    But a little surprised that they released this update so close to the potential release of KAV/KIS 2006!

    Excellent update, uses even less memory and removes the user from having access to the Settings tab without the password.

    I have found that it uses a lot less memory while running but it uses more processor during an on demand scan. I can live with a trade off like that:D

    Hello,

    Is this update ok both for Personal and for Personal Pro? It appears from the website that it is an update for Personal only.

    Weird, my girlfriends Iolo System Mechanic Professional 6 key is not accepted anymore. I did a manual update of KAV, and it directly execluded the key. I tried in System Mechanic if they offered a new key for download, but negative.

    I'll inform the Kaspersky Support about this, also Iolo's support.

    I'm afraid I am blind, for the link provided by Don P on my computer only shows an update for KAV Personal, not for KAV Personal Pro.

    Oh well . . . .

    Last version you can download is 5.0.225, the two small patches then makes it 5.0.228, but i understand the confusion.

    I don't know how far development of a new MP for wks has come, or if there's actually going to be one with 6.0 being so close to release.:)

    I have tested Personal and Personal Pro 5.0.522.
    My machine hangs while performing fullscan - that never happens in this way with any previous builds. :eek:
    Specially the scanning of archives locks my machine.
    The behaviour of 5.0.522 when many viruses are found are not good. There are always untreatet items left, for some items it is not possible to add them to the exclusion-list. Items which are added to exclusions-list wont disappear in the report. I have to delete the report to get rid of the warnings. :rolleyes:
    In the german version some links are not working.......

    5.0.391 is much better than the new version - for me. :ninja:

    Hello,

    It seems that version 391 works better on my system, too. After installing 522 I had nothing but problems . . . for instance, the return of the "grey" K in my bar instead of the usually colorful red/black one. Oh well, I'm happy with 391 so I'll stay with it until I'm compelled to upgrade to KAV 6.

    I didn't have any lock ups but this version just doesn't seem to have the quality and polish of the last build, slow updates and I also had the problem about having to manually delete the warning about excluded items.They just don't have this version quite finished yet it doesn't seem. And during an on demand scan it is very processor hungry unlike previous versions. I am back to F-Secure IS .
