Never had this problem with NOD. I should have known better than to try it. NOD32 has served me well for over 8 years now and after my bad experience with Vipre I don't think I'll ever run another AV again.
What file is that? I've never had a single issue with Vipre.

I'm currently running with Avast! (& Comodo FW) and hoping to stay with these for when I go to Win7 64 bit. I have found them really excellent products and read that they should be OK for Win7.

Both work good yo But really just use Windows Firewall and Avira thats a better combination...
Avast is a little heavy (Its web shield eats up 60MB of RAM)

Yep =)

Reason why I use ESET's firewal lis because
1. I DONT use the homegroup feature
2. It does a VERY good job stopping:
Codered worm
sqlslammer
RPC/DCOM attacks
Sasser worm
All types of Conflicker, and future types.
ARP poisoning
DNS poisoning
TCP and UDP Port scanning attacks
SMB relay attacks
ICMP protocol attacks
Convert data in ICMP protocol attacks
TCP protocol overload attacks
And blocks unsafe address after attack's

VERY good features in ESET =)
Dident even know thoes were there until my cousin had a DNS poisoning (he had COMODO) and I found that in ESET Firewall =P
