Which one is it
NewEgg currently carries only the antivirus (NOD32) for $29.99.

The Smart Security Suite that also includes the firewall can run a bit more, and currently runs about $89 for one user for two years on their website.

Make sure you're looking at the right product and for the right time period.

Sometimes the OEM Smart Security can be found for one year in the $30-40 range, but places are usually sold out.

I'm currently running avast 4.8 professional, but I am also looking for a good firewall that will let me inform me when any applications are attempting to call out and allow me to allow or block traffic at my will similiar to Little Snitch on the MAC.

I was considering using ESET since it has both built into one and I wouldn't be adding different software vendors in the security section causign problems.

Could anyone in the know let me know what your thoughts on this is or should I just use zone alarm or Commodo or something?

Really disappointed in ESET support as the best they could offer with my firewall issue is:

An ESET Customer Care Representative has updated this case with the following information:

Hello,

I'm sorry, Windows 7 is still in development and not supported by us.

Thank you,

Pretty easy out for them. No interest in trying to fix the problem for the millions of Windows 7 users they will have in a couple of months?

No contest dorfdad. small footprint, firewall can be run in interactive mode, you can create any rule you ever thought of, and the AV is great. Im a former zone alarm afficionado but Eset Smart security is better.

Thanks Ken Im going to look heavily into it, however seeing the post above you they stated that they do not support Windows 7. Meaning the application isnt designed to work properly or at full capacity with windows 7 am I reading this right?

No doubt about it!

ESET is by far and wide the best you can get!

Works great in the x64 build of 7600 too.

i always found Avira Anti-Virus to detect the most and not hog your pc. There's a free version too that works well.

Not supporting win 7 yet means that the "official" software isnt certified for win 7 yet. Its bullet proof on 32 and 64.

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.

ESET Smart Security 4
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.
