    Hi,
    I'm running ESS on Windows Vista Business in an office network. So I don't need at all a firewall. The problem is that every time I reboot my machine, the Firewall reactivate itself. It would be great if we could disable it permanently and that ESS doesn't consider my machine protection as low with its red icon.

    Regards
    François

    Why not just install Eset Nod32 Antivirus RC?

    Lol

    That is a good question and answer as well. Is nod32 able to prevent from horses, trojan, rootkits, etc.. like ESS ? I'm licensed to Nod32 2.7, and this version doesn't. So I'm really interested in that kind of functionality, and the AntiSpam as well.

    As far as the trojan horses and rootkits etc. are concerned: yes, the new version does protect you from that. If the Antispam is important, you'll need the suite.

    Actually both NOD32 v2 and Eset Antivirus v3 (as well as Eset Smart Security) provide protection against trojan horses and rootkits.

    You cannot permanently disable the firewall because the product is BETA (a.k.a non-final) and it meant to be fully tested .

    With Eset Smart Security you can use the firewall in Allowed sharing mode:

    If you still think you don't need software firewall (incoming and outgoing protection) , as suggested by Big Apple , you can freely use Eset Antivirus RC1 from www.eset.eu/download/beta
