    it is not fair that I pay money but other people use cracked version like the link below

    Snip: link to a crack removed. It's against TOS to post links to potentially malicious files and cracks.

    Who says that you can update it? And if you can then for how long. :)

    how good is an AV that doesn't updateo_O
    Even with updates all AV's miss crap.

    It's not a crack, it's a full version of ESS with instructions how to perform the update. Nevertheless, the instructions are obsolete and won't work. Also bear in mind that malware usually spread cloaked in cracks. Especially using a crack for an antivirus program is like finding a syringe somewhere on a courtyard and bringing it to a doctor to inject a vaccine in the hope that one will save some money :rolleyes:

    I think that thread should technically be locked at this point. It will only spin more un-needed attention.

    Right. We'll close it as there's no reason to keep discussion about cracks open.
