    1-Since it is ESET policy to NOT contact/suggest old/current clients to upgrade to their latest version - and
    2-Since there have been no notices since before 3.0.650, where I am now -and
    3-Since the latest version is 4.0.424.0 with Consumer Reports giving ESET their highest rating [who knows what version?], then

    Can someone tell me if it is now "safe" to upgrade BASED ON WHAT I AM RUNNINGo_O Any comments will be appreciated.

    PS I can only run DialUp at 40k as nothing else is available here in the boonies.

    There are still too many issues with ver4 that need to be resolved before it can be classed as working properly.:thumbd:

    I've got 4.0.424 running really good on my system.

    Nice improvement from the earlier .314 and .417 builds.

    No more Application popups during shutdown, Dllhost.exe shuts down after starting the Windows Update/Automatic Update Service.

    Still, just one little hair out of place with the ESET Service:

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: Userenv
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 1517
    Date: 5/4/2009
    Time: 1:28:25 PM
    User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
    Computer: flskjkajdjadljfjjti
    Description:
    Windows saved user fialkjfadf adf adfad\dodododod registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

    This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.


    Maybe they'll even have that worked out in a couple of more new builds.
