    I just renewed an ESET NOD 32 subscription on current laptop, but have a new one on the way. Can a subscription be transferred? Thanks!

    The beauty of ESET products is unlike other security solutions when they restrict you from reactivations and what not, you can use the same license on another computer freely provided you are not using the same license at the same time and violating the license allowed users. Just uninstall it from your old laptop and reinstall it on the new one and you're good to go

    ESET basically force you to use LiveGrid. You are allowed to disable it, but there is no way to then disable the warning that LiveGrid is disabled so you have a constant security alert and a red exclamation mark near the tray is on - meaning you may not notice a new alert appearing.

    I went to ESET forums looking for an answer on how to deal with it, but anybody asking about that is being treated like a moron who cannot appreciate how the communist party is doing all of that for their good. And then the thread gets closed.

    Extremely annoying - I will finish my test of ESET Smart Security but I will not pay them a dime after that regardless of how good or bad it turns out to be.
    If I wanted to be treated like dirt and still pay for that, I'd go to Goldman Sachs... (I'm so getting sued for that post :rolleyes:)

    yes I agree that is one part I hate about ESET's products, sure you can disable things you don't need like I would prefer to disable the HTTP scanner to speed up my browsing and downloads but then my OCD wouldn't allow me to do that since I would havee an orange ESET icon in the taskbar and it makes me feel like something is wrong so I've just learned to live with keeping it enabled.

    Is there any reason why you want to disable Live Grid though?

    As much as I don't like such behavior, I've tried all other AVs and I keep going back to ESET

    Other AVs: either heavey on resources, or has activation limits, or has bloatware / addons, or mess up your OS entirely, there is no better AV IMHO

    Please give me a link to the thread you posted. I know the mods there I'll have them look into this.

    LiveGrid isn't special in any way - Avast and Symantec among others have deployed similar solutions which are based around the concept of a wisdom of the crowd and reputation of a file. And herein lies the problem - crowds are not wise. I've never seen so many false positives as I've seen with those types of solutions.

    I haven't posted a thread myself - I found a couple posted by other users and I was appalled by how they were treated. They were literally asked to say what Live Grid does, to prove that they do understand that. Then threads were closed by Marcos.

    I'm not paying them.

    I can help you *if you want* as I am well connected with the moderators there but if you refuse to work it out as I see you are aggravated by those posts you've read....

    Then the next thing to discuss here, is what are you planning to switch to?
