    Assuming eset has HIPS turned off?
    Or will they conflict?
    I know that in the past you could use PREVEX and ESET, where PREVEX was more of an add-on checker/cloud sanity check.

    Confirm they are working fine together.

    Running NOD32 5.0.94.0 & WSA.

    Notice any significant (or perceivable) impact on resources when used together and/or alone?

    I am disappointed that ESET's 5th edition is anything but an improvement, according to AV-Comparitives.org. I cannot believe they've let Norton step ahead of them.

    I'm so glad I've long since given up playing the "which AV is the best this year" game, and just chose the one that is built on a constantly growing technology that is free from human error.

    Didn't know AV-C tested ESET v5 already, just looked it up and found only 1 report with v5 and it has a better result than Norton, both detection and FP-wise.(Latest On-Demand test.)

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. I was up late looking at all of the PDFs they published and I got them mixed up.

    ESET's 4th version slipped down to just an Advanced rating, along with Norton, and Microsoft. All three of those were once Advanced+ products.

    My point is, that's too much overhead. No one should have to play the "which AV is currently the best game," because that sometimes changes every half a year when the companies fall behind for whatever reason. Prevx/Webroot eliminate the human error element by making it all automated and in the cloud, making Prevx consistently the most superior protection available.
