Thought I would post this to be fair to ESET, as it took a little while, but they did what they said they would and fixed the issue. I will post if I have another issue, but for now it's working for me again. So, back to ESET for now.

Back and forth between ESET and Vipre...fun stuff. Oh well, gives me something to do.
Thanks for the update. Let me try it as well as I have nothing to do ATM.

How did you get version 1052 of the Firewall? I installed the latest version of the Security Suite, 4.0.467, and it still has version 1051 of the Firewall. I have updates turned on for the application, and I have tried updating several times but receive nothing.

Turn on "Enable pre-release updates" in the setup. It's still not a "finalized" update.

Well, back to Vipre....ESS just takes too long for scans. It seems the latest update takes even longer for scans than it used to. Oh well, Vipre is an excellent product.

The one problem I found with ESET Smart Security 4.x on Windows 7 x64, was trying to add a rule to the firewall as a non-adminstrative user produced a "Failed to change settings" error. In other words, as a non-administrative user, running a program which accesses the internet, the firewall would popup (interactive mode) and ask if access should be granted, if you check the box to allow ESET SS to remember your choice, it would popup with the error. I always run Windows as a non-administrative user and this error would come up every single time a piece of software accessed the internet. I also noticed a manual virus scan would sometimes come up with "ESET GUI has stopped working" and the entire screen would freeze.

well first of all ... only administrators should only be able to edit security settings in the first place :P... I mean if a virus gets in a guest account that will be able to change security settings... wouldn't that be dangerous?

and eset GUI never froze on my machine.!

:P!

Im not sure why this should even be a consideration when discussing system security and integrity. What is so difficult with starting your scan, go to bed/school/store, and let it do its thing... a non issue IMHO...

Just stating a fact in a thread I created.

ESS takes too long for deep scans, Vipre does not. I'm using Vipre again now and continue to do so.

I'm really not sure why fans of ESET are so touchy. It's just an AV and I'm using something different now.

utorrent downloads is very slow, and when disabling the personal firewall it goes up. I cant figure out what filtering mode to use..utorrent says a firewall/router is limiting your network traffic you need to open up a port so others can connect to you.

I see that ESET Smart Security 4 is now listed as Windows 7 32-bit/64-bit compatible: Firewall, Antivirus, Antispam: ESET Smart Security Has It All ...under the System Requirements section. I wonder if they've updated it since I tried it, I may put the latest build on to try it again.
