    Okay, here's the problem. I got a PM asking me where to buy a new subscription to DrWeb. I already had a link for such purchases but, due to recent *incorrect* DRW prices, I decided to check further before answering the PM -- I detest giving wrong information.

    Here's what I found...
    _/ 1- Price is $33.90
    *Goto http://www.drweb.com/
    *Click "buy" tab at top. Takes you to http://buy.drweb.com/?lng=en
    *At "Where to Buy>Buy Online" click "electronic shop" link. This takes you to
    https://secure.element5.com/esales/product.html?productid=300012884
    *The price there is $33.90. It specifies version 4.32b, which is current.

    _/ 2- Price is $29... maybeo_O?
    *Goto http://www.dials.ru/english/
    *Above link redirects to http://old.antivir.ru/english/
    ##Notice added word: "old" :eek:
    *Click Purchase button in left column of buttons takes you to
    http://old.antivir.ru/english/commerce/
    *Alongside "Doctor Web for Windows 95-XP: 1 license" click Buy Now
    *You arrive at http://esd.element5.com/product.html?productid=502727
    *Price there is old price of $29. However it states version 4.32a.

    The question I cannot answer is, IF someone bought DRW on the $29 site & then tried to update it to version 4.32b, would it go through okay? I THINK it would. However, I am hoping someone who has recently purchased a NEW DrWeb license can throw added light on the matter.

    HELLLLLP!

    Normally it should be OK cause drweb is imho respectable.

    I did this too with boclean (reseller) and everything turned out to be ok too so...but...you never know right?

    Good grief, I put this in "other anti-trojan" whereas it should be in "other anti-virus." I shall try to get a Mod to fix my error.

    In any event, Notox sent me a PM saying...
    so I pass that info on to all interested parties. How long will they retain the lower price? No idea.:p

    I didn't know this.:eek: Is it general knowledge here at Wilders? Perhaps you should consider posting this in its own thread, in case there are others who do not know of this.

    I don't know if it's general knowledge but if you check the main page the 1st link, it's available to the general public. I actually ran into about six months ago by chance ... and I've been very happy with it. ;)

    To my knowledge the only beta testing occurring at the moment is for the adware/spyware bases.

    Wow that price is high. I wonder if they provide support for the US side, kinda like Stormbyte for ArcaVir and Ice Systems for Kaspersky.
