    Anyone who has problems try Opera when filling out the form and submitting. First i had trouble too, but with Opera it worked on the second try. They also don´t seem to accept every kind of combination of the answers.

    - Even though I selected “Update virus databases only” for the “Update Mode”, as recommended by Ashraf  AFTER restating my PC, the software version changed to 5; maybe this has to be done before restarting the system )but on the splash screen shows version 6.
    anybody with the same problems?
    thanks a lot Ashraf for this great site
    excuse my poor English LOL:)

    Not sure what the chinese is saying but it DOESN’T (apparently) say what you say it does.
    For those who haven’t wasted their time on this, here’s a tip: Don’t. It won’t end well for you

    Step 1. Make account
    Step 2. Go to promotional page and fill in the survey (doesn’t have to be accurate, random)
    Step 3. Profit. :D

    Does that help? If not, I’ll do it for you and other who want the product key, I’ll do it for you guys. :P

    @unicorn02: It’s not easy to find other tests of Dr. Web. I usually look to AV-Comparatives.
    Virus Bulletin is another good source of AV info. This page shows the latest tests in a graphic;
    Apparently, Dr. Web has been around for a while. Developed in Russia in the early 90’s, there’s even a Firefox addon for it. I run Eset NOD on my machines, so I really don’t know much about it.

    I have used Dr. Web in the past and it was a pretty good program.  I always turn to Dr. Web CureIt! ( for a secondary scanner when I have a need since it is freeware for home users.  The only thing to remember with CureIt is that it comes complete with all definitions so you need to download a new version each time you use it; unlike the desktop version being offered here.  They also provide a free live Cd for already infected systems.  Overall if you are in the market for a new security program I would say it is worth your time to check it out.

    I fill out the form click the button and some type of message pops up.
    What does this mean? ???? 1 ????
    Nothing else happens. No email, no serial number. :-(
    Hm, the comment editor doesn´t speek chinese. Those question marks used to be chinese symbols.

    Hey Ashraf, so I have the product key and I don’t want to use it yet. Would I still be able to activate it like say 2-3 years later and still get 1 year of protection from it?
