    I am in the process of trialing a couple of AVs to replace Bit Defender, maybe.

    Currently I have NOD on my machine. In a couple of weeks I want to trial KAV.
    I have an impression that the new version 6 will be out soon, and in a sense I hate to trial a version that is going to be replaced with improvements.

    Is there a target date for KAV 6 that anyone here is aware of?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    NOW, that is what I call "Up to date.":D :D

    I mailed them with the question that although I had already requested a 30 day trial, if I could wait and trial V6. Since I read that it is lighter that would be an important criterion for me.

    I'll see what they say, but I WON'T post the email. See I do learn, albeit slowly.;)

    Best,
    Jerry

    Jerry, you don't have to request a trial, you simply download it when 6.0 is released:http://www.kaspersky.com/trials, i would wait for 6.0 too, it's better in every respect.:)

    I agree. It's definitely lighter and faster than v 5.

    Thanks Don and tlu,

    I think I will do that. I do not think I would get the best opinion until the new version.

    Have a good day.:thumb:
