    I read on Dr. Web's website that if one purchases the home version that they are entitled to only one program update during the one year license, and there are three to four program updates a year. If I remember correctly, it said that the professional version gets all the program updates during the one year license. Which one is the Dr. Web professional version for windows XP located here? http://www.drweb-online.com/en/order_drweb.asp

    How long does the trial version last? Any limitations that I need to know about?

    I do want to evaluate Dr. Web, but is there any uninstallation problems that I need to know about, or does it uninstall cleanly?

    Thanks

    Between the rather rough translations and the different software websites that are selling Dr Web it gets pretty confusing trying to figure out exactly what you get. Not to mention that the original home version has sort of melded back into just one program now with little or no word from the developers.
    Anyway, here is my take on things (along with my prior experiences with Dr Web)...

    1) If you purchase Dr Web you get one year of definitions and program updates. To me it spells it out most clearly here: http://solutions.drweb.com/home/lic/
    Although program updates may or may not be available through the updater (I've seen them do it both ways so it's anybody's guess?) But they can always be downloaded manually.

    2) The only difference between home and business versions is the number of licenses. Basically, Home = single license.
    Note: From the page you linked to in your post, click on "New: Dr Web Business with 5 licenses inside"

    3) As for the trial version, if you read the link I posted above it says the demo version is fully functional for 20 days.

    4) Dr Web has always uninstalled cleanly for me.

    Well done, shorty1. I agree 100% with the guidance you have provided. Plus I learned a couple of new things from you. Thanks!
