    To you guys testing the AVAST Beta 5, did you read the beta post on their site? Not sure I would even bother yet:

    1. it currently doesn't contain the most up-to-date defs. That is, part of the defs are somewhat outdated as we're still making changes to the infrastructure. Hence, it is not recommended to use this beta as a tool to protect your system. Also, it is probably too early to do any detection tests at this time.

    2. the Behavior Shield is not yet fully connected (has very limited functionality at the moment - is just a skeleton, really)

    3. the antirootkit component is not connected

    4. there is no licensing component in this version; i.e., no registration, no activation... however, there's a hard-wired time bomb that will disable the program in about 2 months (there will be multiple beta refreshes before that happens, and hopefully even the final product)

    5. the sounds are missing. We plan to have sounds in the final product (and later betas) but they're not there now.

    6. the design will likely change a little bit still... some of the corners will be rounded etc...

    7. some of the Web Shield settings are missing

    8. some of the Shield settings actually require the Shield to be restarted to become effective (Actions, Alerts, Report file, Packers, ...)

    9. the GUI sometimes doesn't get refreshed automatically (i.e. you change something via the tray icon, and the main dialog doesn't update itself to reflect that change)

    10. the iNews, Community and Event log pages are just placeholders atm

    11. the Scan Result window still needs some changes

    12. the built-in program updater doesn't ask for a reboot when it's done (even if it's necessary in order to apply the new update). Also, the update, when initiated from the main UI, may end up in an unexpected state. As an alternative, we recommend using the updater in Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> avast! Free Antivirus -> Change/Remove -> Update.

    13. context-menu scan in Explorer doesn't work.

    In other words, its just a skeleton.

    Exactly.

    They should have just posted screen shots until the thing can actually do something. Useless to download and use it IMO.

    I can create some anti virus software like that in about 1/2 hour...wanna' try it?

    that would actually do something in the eve of a virus=yes
    do something bad though=no
    i actually implement this in a VM as there is no reason right now to implement on a real machine (just how sterling is being issued, not on a install basis but on a vm basis..)
