Kaspersky issues, detailed in this post. (I wanted to keep the Kaspersky issues in the appropriate thread.)
Prior to the upgrade from 0.9.5.3 my 'flatline speed' (the general line where the meter sits when not spiking) was in the 6250 to 6350 range. Now it's in the 6650 range, so am slightly concerned that my intensive tests are going to be skewed, as I am halfway through them. TBH I didn't think the changes to the meter would affect that. As far as I can see, the end speed reported is fairly similar and in keeping with 0.9.5.3 tests (smaller tests are quite inconsistent due to their size), but the meter flatline is higher than before. Obviously I take the end speed for my records, so it might be that the meter is reflecting the end speed more accurately, but I want to check.
Example of 0.9.5.3 test - Flatline of 6350 - end speed - 6650
Example of 0.9.8.1 test - Flatline of 6650 - end speed - 6650
You see my point? It might be an improvement, but I want to make sure.
The overall end speeds reported do not seem to have changed too much. Here's a comparison. - Bother sets of testing took place at similar times of the day, but different days obviously).
User Account Control (UAC) is still demanding confirmation, contrary to what Mr. Saffron said in another thread (albeit another version). Can someone PM or post the appropriate resgistry key(s) to investigate please? Vista x64 SP2
Last thing. I notced on the meter that the flash tester throws up a strange upload speed (for what it's worth, Speedtest.net is similar).

Notice the high red bars at both the initial test and the actual test. TBB meter never did this before.
