Initial research suggests Counterspy Ver 3 does not co-exist well with ESS or NOD32. I've been using NOD32 / Counterspy Ver2.5, then ESS / Counterspy Ver2.5 for a while now and all has been fine. They are my two primary frontline protection tools. If 2.5 support is going to be pulled and an upgrade to Ver 3 is required, then I will be looking for another spyware app as I will not give up ESET. Any others facing this conundrum?
