    I am using 3.0.669 on Win XP with a wireless connection.
    Recently I have been experiencing a conflict between Eset AV and my wireless connection.
    The AV in attempting to update/scan on start up seems to stop the PC linking up to the router.
    This does not happen all of the time, but enough to annoy.
    A reboot always solves the problem as does disabling of the start up update/scan of the AV.
    o_O


    Edit.
    It does not happen when I use cable.

    Well, I cannot put up with this for much longer:(
    I am having to do a restart almost every boot-up.
    So let's see if there is a work round.
    Is there a way of disabling the start-up update and then having Eset AV update an hour later etc.

    I have added the wireless app folder to exclusions.

    The problem went away for a couple of days, but today's update 3417 has brought it back!
    I might try V2 again but..........
