    Two issues I've run into.

    1. My AV program (AVG Pro) flags the beta exe as some sort of malware. As a result I can't even download it using the IE7 download manager. However, I was able to d/l it using Flashget.

    2. It still says version 1.4 within Spybot. Is it supposed to say 1.5?

    Strange. My AVG Home edition didn't flag anything.

    I have noticed fast scanning, infact, to me its actually got slower.

    @streetwolf: do you have a screenshot of that? If so, I'll bug AVG immediately with it

    @djpailo: that depends I guess. On the one hand, there are some improved mechanisms in there speeding things up. On the other hand, last fridays update may already make use of a few of the new mechanisms. The authenticode scan e.g. is now more thorough, since some bad files were signed with a tricky method aimed at hiding the certificate from scanners. So I guess speed improvements or decreases may depend on individual configurations, can't say that in general.

    Beta works great
    Would be nice if the new scanner was multi-threaded

    Just called them. They just gave me a silly form email and an address to send the file and more information to. Lets see how quickly they react...

    speaking of future XP SPs PepiMK, windows xp service pack 3 is scheduled to be released sometime in the first half of 2008 as noted on the Windows Service Pack Road Map page:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/lif...vicepacks.mspx

    it's still unclear whether or not Microsoft will actually include an "anti-malware" option in Windows Security Center for the next XP service pack.

    Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, on the other hand, is in the release candidate stage and will be officially released sometime in 2007.

    also, I'll have to test TeaTimer 1.5 beta on a Win95 machine to see if it works. I remember that TeaTimer 1.4 does not work under Win95.
