    Hi!

    I'm having problems with ESS firewall...the thing is if I leave it in Interactive mode it slows down internet to the point i can't browse any page. Also "Allow/Deny" dialog sometimes appears, sometimes not. If I switch it to Automatic mode internet browsing speeds up (not much). If I switch firewall off everything is normal.

    So I've checked some posts here and...uninstalled old version and installed new one 3.0.672...but the problem remains :(

    Does anyone have idea what's going on...or is just me :blink:

    Hello,

    Often such problems can be traced down to conflicts with other software, such as device drivers or services leftover from previously-installed security software.

    I would suggest you download a copy of ESET SysInspector from ESET's web site, use it to create a log file and send it via email to support@eset.sk with a link to this message thread.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
