    Hi
    I am only new to this & a bit of a TnF with computers - so forgive me if this question sounds stupid:doubt:

    I am about to download Eset Smart Security on to my brand new computer - but understand that there can be problems if there are other AV / firewalls already in place on the computer.

    Can anyone advise me on what steps I need to take to ensure the Smart Security download works and doesn't cause conflicts on my computer.

    My OS is Win XT SP3

    XT? Or XP?

    If it's the XP firewall then ESS will disable it. You got a brand new computer with XP on? Can't be many left now.

    Tks Rapid Dr3am

    I will download the ESS today - as I don't want this new computer sitting naked and exposed.

    Yes XP (sorry 'bout the typo) - coz I am just too scared of Vista - particularly as it has such a bad rep with some of my other software

    Just check in Control Panel that is really disabled.

    Tks to all - Download seemed to have worked fine

    So far - I am pretty impressed with ESS - seems a far better internet security suite than my previous Bigpond Security :)
