5.5 is slightly more 'lightweight' it its use of system resources. The original 5.0 release was fairly heavy on system resources and didn't get a lot of positive feedback. This was the main improvement in the 5.5 release.

 

Yes, the anti-virus module is optional. You can just turn it off.

 

We also have Spyware Doctor 5.5 Starter Edition, which I've not bothered putting online yet. I'll stick that up soon. I had assumed that everyone would just go for the SD 5.5 with AV Starter Edition!

Chris, I actually had to uninstall "with anti-virus". I turned the anti-virus off immediately after installation but my pc all but froze. Was about ready for a restore when it finally opened the uninstall file. This was probably a 10 minute event. It didn't like NOD32 at all I suppose, even though the anti-virus was disabled. I'll certainly give Spyware Doctor a run though. Thank You!

Good point, never thought that the AV module may cause issues with other AV software. I'll try and get the basic SD 5.5 Starter online by Friday morning.
