    Good Evening ! Having used Prevx 3.0 & Safe On Line is WSA Essentials compatible with Eset Internet Security 5.0. My rational is based on WSA replacing Prevx 3.0. Sincerely...Securon

    It shouldn't be a problem just don't let ESS block anything of WSA! Same advice I gave aieie about KIS https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1998290&postcount=4 ;)

    Good Evening ! Thanks for your prompt reply Triple Helix, I just re-installed Eset Smart Internet Security 5.0 and so far everything seems to be harmonious with WSA Essentials. Many Thanks...Securon

    Just like with Microsoft Answers community, if you ask ESET they will not understand and give you the generic, "NEVER run two real-time products"...

    ...but yes, you can indeed rest assured that your system is safe, secure, and conflict free running WSA alongside another product.

    The only compatibility issue that could happen would be if the HIPS specifically in ESET prompts you to allow or block something Webroot is doing, which in that case allow should be chosen. Though this is unlikely as Joe has said, since they spend a lot of time making sure these conflicts don't happen.

    Some users like the layered approach and WSA can run with other AV's if wanted to! I use WSA alone myself! ;)

    On 3 computers I use:

    1. WSA alone.
    2. WSA and NIS 2012.
    3. WSA and MSE (beta).

    All running great with No Exclusions, No Slow Downs on all. :D
