    hi, i cannot install smart V4 on windows 7 (64 bit) just wanted to know if it's me, i had this problem on 32 bit vista. im using nod at the moment, but have 2, 2 year licenses for smart security. am i doing something wrong? all is fine until the system reboots then i get a red icon with a message about firewall couldn't start probably due to corrupt files.

    clean formatted install of windows 7 home premium, no other software installed.
    download and save, right click and select install
    choose typical installation
    enter license details, enable detect potentially unwanted, enable allow sharing.
    program updates itself eveything's fine until reboot

    tried 3 times now, re-downloaded the program each time.
    why is this happening?
    nod 32 working great.
    is this a self protection thing? i havnt tried V3 as i guessed V4 would more stable as it's the latest.
    thanks

    just tried V3 and it works a treat! strange v4 works for some and not for me. i may stick with v4 eav and windows firewall, all this doesnt really give me a lot of faith in eset firewall.

    Had a lot of trouble with this
    ESET would block internet access
    Or windows 7 drivers would not contact the DNS sever

    No DNS contact, no internet

    So I decided to solve this by replacing the Windows 7 drivers
    Or replacing the ESET firewall

    Bought and installed cFosSpeed v5.00.1560

    It replaced the windows 7 drivers

    Presto all my internet problems went away

    Well worth the 23 dollars US

    Until someone can fix this at Microsoft or ESET

    VER 4.0467.0 Hope this helps

    For got to mention you can get a 30 day trial of cfosSpeed

    to see if this will solve the problem

    Hello,

    Perhaps this message discussing how to obtain an updated firewall module will be of assistance.

    Regards,

    It doesnt change anything.
    Sporadic problems with internet connections when eset firewall is running.
    After disabling Eset's firewall the connection is 100% ok again.

    to be honest eset get a lot of stick over the firewall but i have never found a firewall that doesnt cause me some sort of problem. Maybe this is ignornace on my part, but i hate all security software, install it because i have to, and the last thing i want to do is start configuring and messing with it, some of the most infected pc's of seen have masses of security software installed and they still got infected.
    didnt use a firewall for many many years never got hacked had my identity stolen i used smart v3 because it was very light and never bugged me or interfered with my masses of on line games, i really dont know how people can live with some of the bloated poorly written stand alone firewalls.
    im gonna stick with eav i think.
