    Not currently, but I have used previous builds of the two together with out any apparent issues, at least none that that I could see. That was after of course making sure that ERP was Trusted within DefenseWall and everything associated with DefenseWall was allowed within ERP.
    I should add that when I was done testing the two together, to remove ERP I simply reverted back with an image from a backup without ERP installed.

    Yea that's what I was wondering...so I make ERP trusted in DW and I have already whitelisted DW in ERP and made the program files folder trusted and it should work fine after those adjustments?

    I did the exact same thing and also added the new Online Armor (no slow-downs) .. ...believe me, I'm a long-time Kaspersky user....EAM with their new firewall runs very smooth.

    KIS 2014 still not ready for prime time yet?
    i recommend you try the following combo for windows 8.1

    Emsisoft AntiMalware (free or paid no difference in this setup)---offline scanner
    Webroot SecureAnywhere---Realtime (if Emsisoft antimalware is not paid this serves as a realtime module alternative)
    Shadow Defender (exclude emsisoft folder, keep system drive in shadow mode)
    Comodo Firewall 6.3 (make the changes following chiron's guide)
    and make a disk backup using any reliable imaging software you fancy
    i prefer Paragon products (paragon HDM Pro)
    'cause your antivirus may fail, this will not.

    or if you are still in windows 8/7
    Avira Antivirus Premium
    Comodo Firewall 6.3(make the changes following chiron's guide)
    Shadow Defender
    "Any" disk backup

    p.s. you could try Bitdefender av 2014 it is marvellous and very compatible, but requires gigantic updates
    avira is comparably lesser

    Time for something a little different. Took off an AV I've been using about a year and installed Privatefirewall and set up scheduled scans with MBAM and HitmanPro.

    Giving VPNBook with OpenVPN a try.

    I'm liking it so far (Fast and so far reliable)

    *EDIT* - Although the VPN works fine, I cannot use it...it appears to leak DNS information :(

    Now I know why it's just best to buy a VPN service.
