I run a consulting business and have deployed ESET 2 and now 3 to all laptops. We get our email through a commercial Exchange hosting company. Over four years, no one has ever had a virus caught by ESET. I'm pretty sure we have not had a virus as there have been no symptoms. Maybe there is some malware that slipped by, but if so it is not apparent. Anti-ad software used to be so popular, and now seems less so. Is anti-virus getting passe? I guess I am wondering why I am paying in time, resources and lower computer performance? Are we just lucky or is our email provider catching the viruses before they get to us? What is the common experience with most ESET users, is it catching many viruses, like multiple a month or even year? Or am i just supposed to think of this like an insurance policy and just keep paying in case one day something happens? I don't like the ESET architecture in v3 as compared to 2, it seems to eat up more resources and I do not have the knowledge or expertise to know if it is "better" or not. Our machines are all windows, mix of XP SP2 and Vista. Internet through a variety of sources, predominantly Verizon FIOS and Verizon data cards. Any thoughts, encouragement, or similar thinking is appreciated. I'm a newbie in this forum. Rob.
