McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.5 is not supported. Use 8.7 instead.

Ok, that means you have working ESET with this conditions:

1. You have Windows 7 64-bit RTM
2. You have ESET Smart security 64-bit
3. You have any download manager
4. You can leave PC (download manager) to download 10-15GB of data and memory doesnt fill up?

Are that all correct?

Becuse we have here: https://www.sevenforums.com/network-i...tml#post239371 a few members with same problems with combination of ESET 64, W7 64 and downloading lots of data via download manager, and after uninstaling ESET everything is working

I made the mistake of trying to install Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 from the CD copy I use with Vista Ultimate. It seemed to install, told me I needed an update, got the update and when it installed promptly crashed Win 7 RC1 32bit. A repair didn't work and I had to do a complete re-installation.

However the beta version trial Sven mentions works just fine, hard to find on Kaspersky's site but Win 7 offers a link to it if you don't have an AV program installed.

Fair enough...suppose I didn't read your post correctly then as I do not use any download managers.

To be fair though, you did not mention "download manager" in your post.

You stated:

The bold secton could mean anything and does not reference a "download manager" of any kind.

I have a bittorrent app always going and download many things using Opera without issue, regardless of file size.

System Mechanic 9 & Norton Ghost 14

System Mechanic 9 does work in Windows 7 however it corrupted Backup and Restore. Required a re-install to get it working again.

Also Norton Ghost 14 will not install at all in Windows 7. It does not recognize the operating system.
