    They both use the exact same Anti-Virus buddy.

    Eset's antivirus engine is the same as Smart Security's. Smart Security just has more features and a firewall.

    Are the settings regarding the Av module the same for both? Sorry to answer a question with a question but I suspect you've altered the settings for either the Av or the suite or both.

    Sure, stay away from ESS unless you want no end of problems, stick to EAV.

    I'm not at home right now to bring mine up on the screen but you could have a look at the manuals which are available via pdf here. There are also instalation videos. http://www.eset.com/download/manuals.php

    I suggest u reset all ESS4 setting into "default" because ESS4 use the same antivirus engine (NOD32).So maybe your setting got a problem.

    Hello,

    Since ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus use the same anti-malware engine, the only reason I can think of that one program would detect something and another would not is because of a difference in the signatures or in the configuration of the programs.
