    Comparing the LU in pre-09 and 09 versions is comparing apples are oranges. LU is completely redesigned for 09. The problem you are seeing with pulse updates is that the UI is not updating correctly. The pulse updates are still being downloaded on time. Its documented on the Norton newsgroups. So I wouldn't worry about it.

    Haven't managed to get infected while using Vipre (well come to that, I've never got infected while using any AV) and quite like the product but it would be nice to see some comprehensive test(s) of how well it performs. I've read the Virus Bulletin review of Vipre but I am hoping to see it included in AV comparatives or the monthly VB tests.

    Is there any good/decent comparative review of VIPRE versus other 'antiviruses' ? Preferably concerning real-time protection ?

    That's what I'd like to know too. I have asked if Vipre is going to be included in the monthly AV comparatives or reviewed individually but no answer this far: http://www.av-comparatives.org/forum/index.php?page=Thread&postID=3062#post3062

    Good Evening! Have been using Vipre for the past three months,very satisfied so far.Just one thing though because it has Active Protection,has anybody experienced compatability issues with other products. I've recently purchased Prevx's The Edge 3.0 which also has Real Time Protection.I guess what I'm asking can the two products co-exist? Sincerely...Securon.

    How has this been doing compared to NOD32 and KAV with detection rates and system resources? Reason I ask is because I just won a 1 year licence on another Vista forum and cant quite make myself get rid of NOD32.
