Windows 7: ESET questions

ESET questions

Ok, my main question is this. I know that Windows 7 has a compatibility mode, so would I be able to get ESET NOD32 to work 100% w/ windows 7? If so could someone give me instructions (don't have to be detailed, just point me to how to get in compatibility mode for ESET). I'm wondering because I like ESET and I have NOD32 sitting around but when I installed it normally it said not fully compatible.

And as a secondary question, would it be a good idea to get ESET smart security 4 and use it w/ Windows 7 for a year and then get a good Windows 7 antivirus (should be out by then), or just wait a few months and get a Windows 7 antivirus once one comes out instead of ESET smart security 4?

I want to stick w/ ESET because I always have good experiences with their antivirus. Much better than kasperky atleast. (not to mention I don't want to use a beta as my AV for too long)

"Not fully compatible" is a big problem and I think that compatibility mode will not work (for me it didn't) so I downloaded avast. I'm satisfied with it for now...

Running NOD32 Smart Security 4.. It's been working fine with no problems.

What version of NOD32 are you have compatibility issues with?

Kusiobache, I can confirm to you that v4.0 is working flawlessly under Windows 7 64bit and its safe to assume that it works flawlessly under the 32bit interface as well.

So you should go ahead and buy yourself a copy of ESET NOD32 Smart Security 4.0, I was lucky enough to get employee discount on it through BestBuy. It pays to know somebody that works there

+Rep me if I helped you

Yeah, but I'm debating on whether to get SS4 or to wait for a Windows 7 specific AV to come out...

I m running Eset Smart Security 4.0.417 on win 7 64bit and never had any problems with it. IMHO, its 100% compatible. Look no further. Go for ESS. If you need more about it, look here.

If you buy Smart Security 4 and they release something afterwards that's more compatible (Which I doubt they will do, since 4 is already fully compatible) You can just pick up the phone, give them a call and tell them you bought a license for 4 and would like an upgrade/discount for 5 or whatever version they'd have and they will do it for free.

You can do that with most programs and hardware. I got a $50 + 25% discount on my AIO Lexmark. I owned an old one that wasn't compatible and they said no problems, we'll ship you this new kind. Ended up spending only $48 on it.
