My thoughts exactly! I also have downloaded and have it running on one of my other machines. I personally like it very much, when its finished will ditch AVG for it.

20 minutes into it and it decides to tell me I'm not connected to the Internet and to try again later. It also suggests that if I have a 'pending restart' that it might be causing the issue, but I have nothing requiring a restart at the moment.

I clicked on the update button again and it took all of half a second to tell me that my definitions are up-to-date.

Nothing else is using my bandwidth, so I don't see why it's going so slow.
Its the first day of its release, everyone is updating the official version. :P

I thought it was my wifi committing suicide again but glad to know it was the server.

Quick Scan took 10 minutes and some seconds. It didn't find anything, but that was expected.

I'll run a full scan later tonight.

Is this supposed to be like a replacement to Windows OneCare, because I think it's just Windows Defender modernized and improvised.

Windows Defender is a Firewall though, MSE is an anti-virus/anti-malware.

Trashed leaked version I'll stick to the official beta release. Hehehe!

Do we still need to run Windows Defender?
