    Trying out Eset AV. Might as well I have a license sitting around. Waiting for WSA to get the bugs worked out of the Web filter.

    From your sig -> "Eset AV (Max heuristics)" enabling AH under realtime scanning can cause slowdowns so if you do experience that then you know why, AH is enabled only at execution by default. Wich is fine, especially for "high risk" Wilders users ;) Just FWIW :)

    Thanks Swex. I didn't even notice that. You see I'm a Eset virgin. Never used it before. I do see that it is enabled. I haven't noticed a slow down though. It is running around 70K, which is a little higher than WSA. It seems to be running well at the moment though.

    I see, the RAM will stay around 70-100MB but it's not the RAM usage that could be causing the slow down rather the opposite, what I meant with possible slowdown is that it can take more time doing different tasks with AH enabled in realtime. But if you don't "feel" any difference then you're fine I guess. But if/when you do then simply disable AH under real-time in the setup tree but keep it enabled at execution of course :)

    Added VoodooShield. This talk about ESET is tempting me to stray again from WSA. ESET felt a little heavy the couple of times I tried it, but maybe that's just compared to WSA. By "AH" are you talking about advanced heuristics? If so, does ESET install with AH enabled real-time? So a standard install might be faster if that's disabled?

    I guess "enabled at execution" means it'll check on programs when they are started?

    Wow and ESET runs slow on your machine? I have a 2008 dual core 3gb laptop and it runs great on it.

    Running whats in my sig. Really liking tbis setup TBH. Never thought id return to old avira.

    On a different note. I tried the trial to Nod32 AV and i absolutely loved it. Bow if only they could come up with a freebie :D

    ESET is by no means slow, what I meant was it's noticeably there at times compared to WSA which has zero impact as far as I can tell.

    edit: I've since found that there was a conflict between 2 programs not involving ESET. Since resolving the conflict ESET is running just as fast for me as WSA.

    I am not 100% familiar with Kaspersky regional activation policy, but they have one. I think in our case it's restricted to the EU as a whole and not further divided into separate countries inside the EU. Just go to a ebay website in the EU (doesn't have to be the German one, can be .co.uk as well). You can ask the vendor in the specific auction as well. The license can be activated with any language version, only from where it's activated counts.

    Yeah I'm not sure why I'm having issues with WSA webfilter. I might give it a week and try it again. Maybe interfering with K9 Web? Not really sure. That ESS for $12 is tempting though. Might pair up nicely with WSA and sandboxie.

    I know that previously WSA Identity Shield wouldn't work when sandboxed. It was fixed a while back and it runs smoothly with WSA now. The issue that I was having is with the new Web Shield. It lags a little bit on certain sites. I'm sure it just needs some minor tweaking. It's a good combo along with something like VoodooShield. Which should be coming out shortly with Ver2. Hmmm WSA, sandboxie and Voodooshield.

    Have you been running WSA with Comodo FW for a while? I have just used the Win 7 and WSA FW...one in and one out. Seems to be okay so far.

    Do you have the thread regarding the fix for that by chance?

    Yeah I've been using CFW, WSA and sandboxie for a while. Up until the webfilter was giving me trouble.

    Not of the top of my head. Check over at the prevx thread and search for sandboxie. From my experience sandboxie and WSA now work well together. The Identity shield and web shield now work sandboxed.
