    Well I don't have it installed yet, so I cannot try.
    I'll wait for the final version, before I try it.

    Thanks.

    Bookmarked your post.

    The only thing I dislike is the fact that you automatically join SpyNet.

    strange, maybe your current anti-virus prevents the installation?

    Hmm, i always see the definition updates on my Windows Update, no need to manually download and install them.
