For means of comparison I will compare against the 2008 version, which is the latest version I had previously owned. Firstly, this is faster. Faster to install, faster to scan (both on the first time and subsequently) and faster to backup. This version is also Windows 7 compatible, the previous was not (or at least not natively, I think there was some work-around available). Access to the 5GB online backup is simpler and logically laid out, and overall an improvement on all other systems I have tried. The incremental system for backup is logically more efficient than the standard dumping of everything into one big file, however it takes some getting used to (i.e. not having to do it yourself, and trusting that the program is working okay). The security system is similar to the old one and works as well as always, and has stopped some web-based exploits which tried to take over my PC. Perhaps AVG would have stopped them also, but at least this did and made my options clear on how to deal with the threat. So overall I am very happy with this new version.
