    The standalone has some extra "features you can en/disable". I'm using the newest xp-antispy, but the "old" Ewido, so what the "new and improved" AVG has I don't know.

    "Connection Limit" modification(s)

    Hi "Get" :

    The "original Standalone version"s Changelog shows periodic
    "Connection Limit" modifications, usually after a Microsoft Update;
    what is this ?

    in WinXP SP2, Microsoft lowered the number of concurrent TCP connection attempts to 10 per second. some applications like p2p may suffer lower performance from this and thus a (unofficial) patch was created.

    the patch simply allows u to change the aforementioned number.
