Until now I was using NOD32 version 2.7 and was very happy with it. Now I gave version 3 a trial and was very frustrated. EKERN.EXE seems to work as a proxy on WinXP, which compromises my firewall (Comodo). I found several statements in the internet concerning this problem, but it is still not clear to me, if ESET will solve the problem in version 4: Thus my questions are: 1) Will ESET really solve the problem? 2) If not, how long will ESET support version 2.7? (I would switch back, if the support is long enough) It would be a pity, if we will be forced to change the AV software. We were very happy with NOD32 v 2.7.
