    I have been running ESET Smart Security for a couple of weeks now (trial version). Happy enough with the firewall, but I get really poor internal lan speed.

    When moving files from a 2003 to Vista running ESET I typically gets up-speed about 18-21 KB/s. On a Gigabit nic it is about 1-2%. The 2003 machine is running Symantec.

    When running Symantec on both machines the speed is typical 5 to 10 times as high.

    Anybody have experienced something similar? Regards, Nieman.

    What types of files do you copy? If they are exe/dll's, it may take time for advanced heuristics to emulate them. Have you tried disabling advanced heuristics, runtime packers and sfx archives in the real-time protection setup to see if it makes a difference?

    Hello Marcos.

    Thank you for your reply. I typically move DVD images between the two machines (iso or img). I expected slow transfer for exe, dll’s and so on. They are seldom a problem, because of small size.

    I haven’t looked too deeply into advanced heuristics. But I will try this evening.
