Exactly, +1 to that, you cant say "It does not give false positives", its not going to tell you its a false positive, just thinks its malware when it really isnt.

How is it working? Could you post a screenshot of your taskmgr(show processes from all users) just to see how much RAM its eating.

its working well its picked up 1 Trojan
they update definitions 2-3 times aday so its always update
from what can see its using 45mb and user interface 3.5mb
advast was using about 25mb
but these day with us having gigs of ram using almost 50 isnt a problem

I was using MSE, but I wanted more of a log file and some more options than what MSE provided so I am trying out ESET NODE32 right now. Yes, it's not free, but I wanted some more options. Seems to be quite light and running well.

I did try out the smart security first of all, but found I could not get the network systems talking to each other, by default the firewall blocked them. I'm sure I could have worked with it a bit and gotten it configured, but the default action should be to allow the home networked computers to talk to each other and allow sharing of folders already setup that way in Windows. The basic home user would get pretty frustrated easily and uninstall and not buy IMO.

The anti virus by itself is working fine though.

Hi, if you are looking for more options and customization, why don't you try Kaspersky Anti Virus 2010?

Because ESET seems to have a better record out there based on all the reviews and articles I've read, plus a smaller footprint and it does seem to be pretty configurable from what I've found. Just wanted some more logging more than anything.

I found with MSE, when I went into it, I couldn't find out if at the scheduled time if a scan did indeed happen and it an update happened before that (I had it set to do so, but like to see a log of what happened).
