As a personal choice, I do not use any Beta, why look for problems.

There is an addon to Windows Firewall that makes this simple. Someone here will know the name of it. I thought I had the link; but I can't find it.

Thank you, Lomai.

Understand that Richard and I are coming from our experience of BSOD analysis. We have seen plenty of crashes caused by Kaspersky and most other third party antivirus programs, firewalls and security suites. There are valid reasons for this. It has to do with Win 7's built in security measures.

You should have consulted with SF members before continuing your purchase with KIS2011. You could have not wasted money for it.
