Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Q - Which link should I use to download?
A - If you are not one of the users of CIS Pro/Plus/Complete, you should use CIS Premium links.

Q - I am an existing user using a paid version of CIS Plus/Pro/Complete) What should I do?
A - We recommend you to wait for the updates next week. Only the setups are released as of today(12/29/2010). However, if you would like to reinstall, we have included the links below for our reference.

Q - I am an existing user using a previous version of CIS. Do I receive the updates now?
A - Only the setups are released as of today(12/29/2010). We will be issuing the updates next week.

Q - Should I uninstall CIS 5.0 and reinstall CIS 5.3?
A - You dont have to. You will get the update next week anyway. But if you dont want to wait, you can.

Q - I dont want to wait for updates. Do you recommend me to uninstall CIS 5.0 and install CIS 5.3 if I have my own security configurations with a lot of changes to the defaults?

A - Yes they are.
