    I've given up on 3rd party firewalls. I don't need one. NOD32 and windows firewall tweaked the way i want/need serves me well

    Well, the main problems seem to be centered around sharing files and I'm not on a network. Looks like I'll be giving ESET a try.


    Thanks, tw33k.

    What are we all using - Avast?
    Yup. Tried to install Trend Micro and it just wrecked my RC install completely. Too bad since I really liked it....

    100% using ESET Smart Security. Firewall set to interactive, so I can choise. Never a problem with NOD 32 AV.

    Works IMHO Perfect with Windows 7.

    Well, ESS and Nod32 are two different things. If you are using ESS, you have the firewall, as you have stated. It does NOT work perfectly in Windows 7 when it comes to sharing folders. Straight from ESET, they are working on a new firewall module (1052) to fix this issue and it has not been released yet.

    I just don't want people buying ESS thinking it works perfectly with Windows 7 because it does not. Not yet anyway.

    It still doesn't appear on their website that ESET works with Windows 7. So far, it seems only BitDefender Total Security 2010 and now NIS 2010 are claiming to work in Windows 7.

    I'm actually curious to hear some of the reviews about Norton's latest release. I'm looking for a suite that handles 64-bit.

    Actually, to be fair, it does now for Nod32:

    I'm personally just saying that there are still issues with ESS and the firewall.

    Yeah. But, aren't the problems just about file sharing now? I'm not hearing as many complaints about being unable to access the Internet any more.

    That's right, the problems with eset's firewall do relate to sharing files across a LAN. Like igster said, eset are working on this and I expect it to be resolved by the time windows 7 is available to the general public

    Each to there own.
    1. NIS is one of the biggest pieces of CRAP going. (IMHO) every system brought in with bad trojans and malware have NIS. I tell them (remove NIS) and I will work on , it stay i do not work on or fix.

    2. I have NO PROBLEMs with ESET SS 4.0.437, Nada, 100% works FINE. Sharing and what ever I do... Sorry.

    The pretext of the Original Thread was AV ... and NOD 32 is part of ESET SS.

    Please, use norton 2010.
    Norton 2005-2008 had a horrible detection rate and clogged down your system, but 2009-2010 is awesome, amazing detection rate and doesnt slow down your computer at ALL!
