Decided to give ZASS 8.0.059 a try yesterday when it became 'official' in ZASS 7's product update.
Didn't go thru all the guides and lessons and lectures here, just with my usual routine:
1) Untick the 'Load at startup' option2) Restart the PC (to unload that hardworking vsmon.exe)3) Usual uninstall4) Registry cleaning5) Install the latest version
Everything is fine and working, no BSOD, no hang at shut down, no license key corrupt, no 'can not upgrade' problems, no 'can not downgrade' problems, no antivirus disabled problem, no 'double firewall' problem blah blah blah...
...BUT (yes, "so what" you must be asking)...
Where is the improvement? Where is the so called 'faster than ever performance'??!
1) Boot up from Welcome screen to desktopWithout security suite : <1 secKaspersky 2009 Trial
: <1 secZASS 8 : >10 sec
2) Scanning a ~45MB executable file (ZA7 itself)Kaspersky 2009 Trial : <5 secZASS 8 : >30 sec
So, my upgrading dream is shattered...
