    Now that V3 is out, how much longer will v2 updating etc. be supported?
    I have to say I prefer V2 to V3, reactionary that I am.:D

    As do I.. But remember that v3 includes a new engine that v2 does not. That might be something worth considering. V3 is not just a new gui.

    HighTech_boy,
    Does your share include the Enterprise Edition? I am on a 2-yr license (thru 02-2009 and plan to stay with v2.70.39 until v3.0
    firms up a bit more. And, I do so like how EE works.:thumb:
    It is completely invisible now; the whole house is happy and bug free.:D
    Best,
    Duncan

    Well , yes , because EE is still v2 -> in it there is nothing to update except v2's definitions (one doesn't update the RAS/RAC/Mirror parts)

    I really hope this two more years of support for v2.7 is true. This will allow me to renew this coming year and continue to use v2.7 for the next two years while ESET works out ALL the bugs in 3.x.

    My main problem with v3 was a compatibility issue on a system that also used ZASS v7.x (w/AV disabled) as a firewall. When I had the ZASS advanced web site privacy protections enabled the cookies were being blocked from sites requiring a login. It didn't matter whether I disabled all privacy protection in ZASS for those particular trusted sites with a login or not. I had to continuously re-logon to those sites during a session and some common sites with a login simply did not work at all. This issue could also effect some system configurations running ZAP but I haven't seen it yet. NOD v2.7 with IMON does not have any of these web site login cookie problems. I am running WinXP SP2 on all my systems.

    I don't completely understand why v3 causes this problem with ZASS but from what I have read in this forum it probably is the result of a conflict with some firewalls (such as ZA) and the proxy based web scanner in v3. If ESET and/or ZA can find a reasonable solution to this issue without disabling the advanced web based protection in either program then I will continue to use them. If this problem is not solved in the next two years then I will be forced to make a move away from one or the other of these two programs (or both).

    Hi SoCalReviews,
    In ZASS v7 (or any ZA version) disabling may not be sufficient to prevent conflicts. Vsmon stays unchanged. ZASS v7 uses KAV. There's very likely a conflict with the KAV drivers which stay around even if AV is disabled. I wonder what would happen if you tried ZA free v7 for a bit after a very, very, very /clean uninstallation of ZASS. Apparently when ZA free installs, while it's really a ZASS the features of ZASS aren't installed, therefore you might see different results. Just a thought :)
