    ESET is pleased to announce the availability of ESS v4 Release Candidate. It is downloadable from ESET's download page. It can be installed over any previous version. Should you run into issues with reinstallation, uninstall the former version completely prior to installing the RC.

    For update to work properly, the embedded username and password as well as the predefined update server must be used. Therefore, if you have other version than v4 installed, write down your username and password and uninstall the current version prior to installing the RC.
