    Is there any prob between ESS/EAV & Google Chrome?
    Sometimes websites loads very slow or page cannot be displayed in Google Chrome but at the same time those websites works fine in Internet Explorer.
    Win 7 64

    Eset Endpoint at work, NOD32 at home. No issues with any browsers for me.

    No issues here either on Win7 64 and NOD32 AV.

    Some members have complained about a general slowness with Eset not related to any specific browser.
    You may want to open a thread at Eset's own forum.

    FWIW, Chrome and NOD32 running on two 7x64 machines with no slowness.
    I don't use IE enough to offer any comparison.

    Slowness with ESS or EAV?

    By the way, it seems the prob was due to ublock. I disabled it & no probs.
    So uninstalled ublock & installed adblock plus & no probs now.

    -Is there any prob between ESS/EAV & Google Chrome?
    Well, apparently there was this
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/thre...ocking-your-security-applications-dll.374056/

    https://code.google.com/p/chromium/codesearch#chromium/src/content/common/sandbox_win.cc&l=43
    "The DLLs listed here are known (or under strong suspicion) of causing crashes
    // when they are loaded in the renderer. Note: at runtime we generate short// versions of the dll name only if the dll has an extension."

    "imon.dll", // NOD32 Antivirus"

    However I don't think anyone has reported an issue or problem so far due to this. Though an expert member might be able to explain more on this, I think.
    (Note: I'm posting here hoping someone can further explain this)

    It seems the prob was not due to ublock as I am again facing the prob.
    Now I have excluded chrome under protocol filtering & no prob yet.
    If the prob appear will post here.

    Is protocol filtering in EAV too?
    Any side-effects of excluding chrome under protocol filtering?


    UPDATE - The way chrome is working now superb. So it seems protocol filtering is affecting chrome.
    If the prob appears will post here.

    Yes, EAV also includes protocol filtering.
    I have had no side-effects after excluding Chrome from protocol filtering. Only webpages are loading faster :)
