    Thanks for the pics.

    Since you say it's very light, how much resources does it use?

    I really hope this beta isn't going like the version 6 beta and that we will see a release version of version 7. Apart from that the product is looking good. :)

    It looks nice but thats pretty much all. None of the buttons in submenus work, after reboot it installed firewall by itself even though i checked just antivirus, Outbreak mode cannot be enabled because submenu buttons aren't working etc.
    I've seen alpha versions with less bugs...

    By looking at the screenshots, it seems it is version 6 plus Vista support. I hope I am wrong.

    I just want to see the firewall section, and see if they have taken away the ugly naked and bold guy :D

    But yeah, Norman should have released a change log from version 6 to 7.

    I can't see a big improvement in version 7. But it seems like improves the GUI.
    The engine is still v5.9(old one). And it still doesn't support RAR on-demand scan.;)

    That ugly dummy really makes me sick..:thumbd:

    And the beta support team from Norman is terrible. They responded to my bug reports for 6.0 beta more than one month after I have submitted them. I wonder how they fix the bugs this way.

    The time-frame thing is really a good idea and it looks useful too.

    I just installed the beta and the interface is nice, although it keeps crashing on me randomly. Norman is still active but I cant get to the GUI. Norman just says that I have to reconnect to the service or restart the program but the only thing that helps is a reboot if I want to see the GUI again.
    The memory consumption is high but has no noticeable impact on performance (I have 2GB RAM), everything is running smoothly.

    I dont know how the antispyware module are supposed to work. Usually I dont have any antispyware apps installed, but prior to installing this Norman beta I tried Panda antivirus and it constantly deleted tracking cookies but even though I surfed along some porn and crack sites Norman was very quiet (I installed it as a advanced user).
