I have 2 problems with the ESS (NOD32 is the same). 1) there is no option to exit the program in the sys. tray. 2) I cannot stop the program scanning files on startup or restarts. (BTW, some other users have also requested this.) I restart or startup the PC on anything from 2 to 5 times a day, possibly more. Both 1 & 2 really get me annoyed because there is no way I can find to stop that. Every time I have to manually go into ESS to stop the AV, Firewall etc, that is after I have to endure the file scanning. If you in ESET cannot (I doubt that very much) then I will have to forget ESS and NOD32 AV as it is exactly the same. Then I will have no choice but to go back to NOD32 2.7 and Outpost, because I have no desire to have to go through that every day, and have my new username & password transferred back to NOD32 2.7. It is easy for you good ESET persons to provide the options concerned, please put them into the program so I can regain my sanity. this is the only program that I have that has these "problems", all others can be exited and start-up scanning disabled. Please, many pleases.
