    Read First.

    While all this was happening I submitted the same file to Avira.
    And :eek: within two hours I had a reply saying that the sample was received and the next update would have detection.

    Very impressed and Avira does well on my Quad Core based PC with Vista.
    So here goes. Avira, you have just gained yourself a customer.

    So your thread in ESET's forum can well be closed , right ? You need no assistance from ESET then ...

    I still run NOD32 on my laptop. So I still need this fixed.

    You'd better resend the sample to support @ eset [dot] com , they can check your sample's status

    I hate situations where you send the actual malware that infected some PC and they never add it. I kind aunderstand for harvested malware here and there but malware from PC's should be top priority regardless of other stats.

    :cool: Thankyou. I'm all paid up on a two year license.

    I have to admit that Avira's product has changed a lot. It's also good to get timely detection and feedback about submissions. Very impressed.

    Welcome to the club, hope to see you at the Avira forum as well. Avira steadily has improved into a class product by itself.

    Maybe the best choice out there. :)

    I am also an ex-customer of ESET... dissapointed also. :)

    Avira is top-class in adding viruses and giving support.

    Already joined just a short time ago :thumb:

    Just did a complete scan with Avira, it found some sort of trojan that it promptly got rid off. Nice.

    ;) makes me think, how many people switched from Eset lately.

    I just wish I didn't pay Eset for a 2 year license. It's going to be unused.

    You should be able to sell it easily for a reduced price. There are still enough Eset fans, although I am also quite sure Eset is losing customers drastically.

    May I request any NOD32 users who shift to Avira to comment: (esp for 64-bit Vista w/ 4GB RAM):

    1- WebGuard can switch off in Antivir Premium? Or its possible only in Premium Suite ?

    2-Which is lighter on system Nod32-v3 or Antivir paid ? (I dont mean RAM use, but slowdown of mouse responses /snappiness esp in browsing exe files/ packed files )

    Just want to know your feelings/experiences. (I will buy a 64-bit desktop, so I cant test it myself).

    If this post irks the mods in any way- please feel free to delete it-Thanks !

    I find Avira a lot snappier than Nod32-v3 in browsing exe and packed files!

    wow one week ago:eek:

    i think eset released this year a completely security that is the reason why they don't hang up in the detection world, and not so fast in adding.
    They have firewall to improve, antispyware, http:scan, etc, or? maybe that is the reason why they are not good at detection rate anymore.

    Or it could be that some malware must be added later means: "Priority" ?
