    From my limited experience it looks good.

    Email scan now catch's things when they knock on the door rather than when you open the door.

    It picked up one virus that an updated avg 6 missed.

    If you would like to try it look here:

    The beta version expires and the new avg free will be available sometime in November.

    I found that annoying as well, but found it can be disabled by email scanner properties.
