    Hello,

    No release date has been announced for future versions.

    Currently supported versions of ESET Smart Security are v3.0.684.0 and v4.0.437.0 (some localized versions have higher version numbers than these, but that is to account for language translations, not differences to the code).

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky

    I disagree, I still have v. 1.0 somewhere and it's probably the most stable version :)

    Well, I for one will be moving to Kaspersky as soon as I install Windows 7 on my machine, I'm sick of ESET. It maybe one of the best AV softwares out there, but it's just way TOO buggy on Windows Vista and I see ESET do nothing about it... There are so many bugs and so many problems that peopl ar having that there should be at least one new version every week to fix problems, yet, we have one from time to time... I can't stand this anymore.

    Goodbye ESET, you had a good product and everything to make it an exccelent one, but you ruined it...

    Whatever, at least the software ain't as buggy as ESET's...

    How come there's this stupid bug that went from v3 to v4 unfixed where I double click on the tray icon and the GUI doesn't pop up? THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER SOFTWARE I USE.

    If you are satisfied with ESET, good for you, I'm not, so I'm moving. Will you let me without being so arrogant because I mentioned I was moving to a competitor?

    i dont use eset, just having a laugh at you..
    and btw kaspersky is a bloated mess of BSOD buggy trash, so i would be sure to take an image/snapshot of your system before you install it:thumb:

    and just go already!

    ...and I may be coming the other way. Running KIS 2010 for the last couple of months on Vista and and tired of it hanging on shutdown, the sidebar crashing, and explorer.exe crashing when I right click on files. Also they will not launch a Windows 7 compatible version until CF2, probably in October according to the announcement on their forums. I am hoping ESET has resolved some of the issues I was having, I keep going back and forth and would really like to settle on 1 product, this costs too much to keep doing.

    I dont have that problem when i double click on the tray.. The GUI pop up right away.. And it does that on every PC that i have installed ESET SS on..

    So maybe its your PC that need to be reinstalled...

    And i dont have or see any bugs in eset ss.. And for me Kaspersky IS 2010 was way to slow and way to bloated and pretty hard to config..

    I had a look at Kaspersky too.
    And as much as Eset sucked lately... Kaspersky sucked even more ! :)

    Eset is still the best.. :D

    In all honesty I do not have a problem at all with ESS in both W7 and Vista.

    This may or may not have something to with that, when I install an OS I configre it then I install my software, the first that I install is ESS then my other "security" programs, then if its working I activate it and install my other programs.

    When I have an OS installed and actived and all my programs installed and there is an ESS update I just install over it.
    If there is a new version I uninstall it then go into certiain folders in my C: drive - the OS and delete all of any ESS folders remaining, then restart and install the new version.

    As I said, I have no problems.

    Even if there will be a brand new version in the future, you'll be able to download it using your current license without paying any additional upgrade fees.

    This is directed to Nazgulled.
    You deserve Kaspersky.
    I've been on ESET for years with no problems except maybe the Firewall.
    But that's my problem and the Windows Vista Beta version they put out.
    Try checking what you think you know versus what you do know and maybe some adjustment needs be done.

    Softwares are made by humans, so we can't expect a 100% perfect program.
    Anyway people always complain about programs.
    I upgrade my video card drivers every months and in AMD's forum you can see many people complaining about Catalyst as the worst drivers and blame ATI in favor of Nvidia.
    What I'm trying to say is that people will always complain.
    With ATI Catalyst I had some problems, same with Realtek drivers, Adobe products, Firefox...
    4.0.437.0 works very well in my computer and also in all the others computers were I installed ESS.

    And quite often blame the wrong part. I for one have the icon issue with other programs from time to time so I'd say it's Windows related. People should bear in mind that applications only utilize the API that Windows provides and thus cannot be blamed for every issue if it's actually caused by the OS or interference of other software.

    ESET products are continually being developed. The availability of new versions will be announced in advanced at the right time.

    My answer was intentionally general. As I said, a new version or the availability of a beta will be announced at the right time.

    KIS and KAV are horrible monstrosities, which make your machine sluggish (although clearly it must work for some people ....)!
