    I have got this bit of info from an ESET support technician:

    EDIT: I have removed the content of the hole private message after petition from a mod, I just leave this part as a quote.

    Can someone confirm this?

    Personally I have always liked IMON. Even taking into account that it has presented some compatibility problems with applications like Google Desktop in the past these has been worked out and fixed.

    And what about the POP3 protection that is managed also by IMON?

    It would be nice to read your opinions about this.

    IMON will be dropped, but there will still be pop3 and http scanning. Plus it no longer uses the winsock layer.

    and the new internet protection (which can already be seen/tested in the beta release of ESS) is much better than the current IMON ;)

    I just updated to .39... it still has IMON

    And BTW.....the automatic component update didn't grab it... I had to manually update.

    NOD32 v3 will drop IMON not the .39 build.

    That's OK, we didn't release PCU to 2.70.39.

    Cheers.

    I've tested ESS. I just didn't see anymore that flyer with "downloading" larger files while browsing or downloading something. It is clear to me that ESS isn't scanning those files ( like NOD32 did ).
    That's why I expect some technical explanation to illuminate me.

    AFAIK ESS doesnt have that flyer, but it does scan pages while browsing:

    ESS's web scanner is working in mode similar to Higher compatibility mode in NOD v2 and that's why there is no "flyer"

    Yes , but it's not the same , not that deep.
    I've experienced with certain web pages. With NOD32 they load slower , because everything on that page was scanned before opening and I liked that. Downloads are not scanned with ESS before they are saved to PC.
    Maybe ESS is working in higher compatibility mode only.o_O
    Or is something else.o_O
