ESET is pleased to announce the availability of a new product generation for testing. Even though installation over older versions is supported, we recommend that you uninstall your current version prior to installing the beta. Since it's still a beta version, we do not recommend installing it on production systems.

The new version 4 features more than 50 improvements compared to the current version. The main changes are described below:

- integrated ESET SysInspector
- support for laptops (tasks can be postponed when the machine is running on batterry, a notification appears if a larger update is going to be downloaded, etc.)
- added a non-graphic interface (suitable for screen readers used by visually impaired persons)
- improved scanning of removable media (used maximum settings when running files from removable media, allows blocking/allowing USB ports)
- improved cleaning
- improved self-defense
- added statistic graphs and information about the currently scanned object
- added an option to use advanced heuristics on file execution
- added an option to control the level of archive scanning or maximum scan time of objects
- added option to supress notifications when applications are run in fullscreen mode
- scanning of encrypted HTTPs/POP3s protocols
- website management allowing to block/allow access to user-defined sites
- new Document protection module for scanning MS Office files
- added an option to connect to 2 ERA servers
- customizable context menu
- UAC support
- password protected uninstallation
- notification about missing operating system updates
- management of hidden dialog windows
- Thunderbird plugin
- Antispam now uses a user and global address books
- potentially unwanted/unsafe applications are now reported in a yellow alert window which requires a user interaction

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
