    I wish for a good change. I still remember MSAS, much better than this one.
    Just recently they released a final version and now a new version! It doesn,t make any sense to me.
    They advised to unisnatll older version that means there are major changes in this version. If they were planning for major changes why they announced the beta to be final.

    I downloaded and found nothing changed grossly.
    They say it to be a clear GUI. It,s damn foolish GUI in my opinion. I feel frustrated.( don,t want to remember that I actually praised the GUI in the past-- it looks nice than MSAS but not user friendly at all).

    To update definitions manually... you have to... go to the arrow beside HELP... which makes me mad... then it doesnt show update process...

    I hate that... and every time i hit scan it automatically starts... not sure what type of scan it is or anything..

    GUI is one of the worst for any scanner.
    For scan click the arrow on right side of scan and it will show u the options, Quick, Full and Custom.
