    ok so as i see the new interface is alot different and uses more resources, i got used to the old one on 2.7 and i think that i would rather the older look to use less resources so is there any real differences in 2.7 and latest to make it worth staying with new version? i mean i had 2.7 and i was very happy with it always virus free and never a problem with other anti viruses i had faulse posotives and lots of problems..

    i have 4GB ram so an extra 32mb added isent so bad but the less used the better. i was just wondering if there is any large noticable differences or reasons to use the latest official instead of 2.7?

    V2 shortcomings:
    - detects less malware
    - less effective cleaning of infected systems compared to v4
    - larger update files which may cause delays in updating when a large update is issued
    - IMON may interfere with other applications working as LSP
    - inability to enable Advanced heuristics for file access/execution
    - weaker self defense
    - no support for adjusting settings under limited accounts (added in v4)
    - no integration with email clients. Only transparent POP3/HTTP scanning via IMON is supported.
    - inability to check secured HTTPS/POP3S protocols (added in v4)
    - inability to block/allow removable media (added in v4)
    - inability to manage website blacklist (added in v4)
