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

I've been using Eset AV for many years since version 2. Now using the latest version. Very happy and satisfied with it. Not so sure about the Smart Security Suite, however. I'll probably wait for their firewall to get more mature before I consider switching from Comodo and Eset AV to Eset SS.

In the meantime, I'm very satisfied with the combo of Eset AV and Comodo for their Firewall only. Both native x64 apps and both have been rock solid on my 7 system, even though neither of them officially support it yet. The only issue I've had is when I upgrade to a new Windows 7 build. I have found it necessary to reinstall Eset and reconfigure Comodo each time I've done an upgrade, but that's no big deal to me. With Eset, one can export/save their Eset program settings to an XML file and it's a snap to re-import them after reinstalling Eset so it's just a few seconds really for me to reinstall Eset AV with all my customized settings intact.

No.

See my first post in this thread.

For me, not even close to the best.

ESET has a fine antivirus, but according to matousec, its firewall leaves something to be desired...

Sorry, but those ratings are crap IMO. Commodo at #3? Their anti virus is awful. Quite frankly I would rather have a strong anti virus and a weaker firewall.

But giving ESET a 4% ranking...please...

the ratings have nothing to do with antivirus, these are firewall tests. perhaps you should read a bit more about what the scores mean...

I used to use Kaspersky Internet Security, but found KIS 2009 far too complicated to use. To be fair to Kaspersky they did refund me after nearly 2 months of using the software. I have switched to ESET and have never really had any problems since - now using it on Windows 7 RC

I did. This is why I stated what I did about having a stronger anti virus over firewall.

I've read numerous tests all over the net and ESET has never been ranked so low. Who are these guys anyway? And, they are the only ones who have ever ranked Online Armor Personal Firewall as #1 from any site I have ever seen. Do these guys have some sort of stake in this very uncommon product?

Can anyone else back up this report? Is ESET's firewall really that bad?

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.
