    I want to trial NOD32. I go to eset.UK and request a trial download. I am automatically redirected to eset.es, where the only version is in Spanish, WITH NO OPTION TO CHOOSE INSTALLATION & OPERATING LANGUAGE!
    Yes - I'm SHOUTING and with good reason.
    I HATE, HATE, HATE organisations which auto re-direct one based upon an I.P. address. (Yes, I live in Spain, but I'm English!)
    If I wanted eSet, Spain I would have put it in the address bar.
    Bl**dy arrogance, eSet!

    Hi!

    You mean eset.co.uk not eset.uk, right? This address does not exist. So, I try to open www.eset.co.uk and there is no problem (I'm from Bulgaria and not redirect me).

    The UK based site of ESET has the habit to redirect people to location where the IP comes from, there was another topic about it which was even worse behavior(from a IP non-UK you couldn't even simply visit the site).

    It is also way easier to visit eset.com - you can directly download a trial of NOD32 from that website.
