As has already been suggested I would try uninstalling Eset and see if the youtube problem still persists. Also check you have the latest Flash Player installed. What issue are you having with youtube?

Then depending on your findings either renew Eset (downloading latest version from their website), or if you really want to change and prefer having the paid for support/peace of mind look at Kaspersky AV 2013. I use Eset in my work place and Kaspersky at home and wouldn't have an issue recommending either.

If you want a tightly controlled system then Id recommend a Kasperksy product but it will ask you to remove the Malwarebytes due to incompatibility issues.


The latest version of Kaspersky is compatible with Malwarebytes and vice versa.

It should let him skip uninstalling Malwarebytes. I recently upgraded from KAV 2011 to 2013 and during installation it let me skip uninstalling Comodo as it claimed it was 'incompatible' which is a load of rubbish. As he is after a complete solution he should go for KIS over KAV

I've just done some looking around and it looks like your issue may be related to a problem with a couple of MS updates, specifically KB2735855/KB2750841. This is the relevant post on the Adobe forums; http://forums.adobe....art=80&tstart=0

Eset are aware of the issue and are currently awaiting a fix. http://www.wildersse...t=332920&page=4

So as a possible fix to your youtube issue you could first try uninstalling the update KB2735855, and then if it's required KB2750841.

My bad, I was assuming he had a router with built in firewall.

ESET firewall is the worst abomination I have used, it randomly block and interfere with the correct function of several legitimate games and development software, the NOD32 Antivirs is sub-par

Comodo Antivirus. Free, and according to the website, it is guaranteed to protect you or they will pay for your computer if its damaged by a virus.

Resubscribe - but just get the AV only, not the full suite. (Y)

Care to share what those stats reflect and a source?

Also please elaborate on your second point. I am more curious than anything because i've never seen or had a problem to date..

Lol this was a thread about a problem using Eset AV under windows 7 that was caused by a MS update and now there is a fix for it.
Make another thread about your preferred AV or whatever A vs B you have there.
Thank you

As other have said

1) Stay away from the firewalls. WAY more headache than what they are worth. The one built into windows works just fine.
2) Stay away from MSE, for some reason 90% of the people on this site like it, but in my experience its not great.
3) I also recommend buying Malwarebytes. It's only a 1 time purchase and a great second line of defense.

One of the best forms of AV is to keep your stuff up to date. This includes

1) Windows
2) 3rd party applications such as but not limited to Adobe reader, flash and Java

This is what the average persons security looks like.. and i'm not making this up!

Expired version of X Antivirus (usually Norton or McAfee)
Some people are also missing service pack 1 for 7 or Service pack 2 for vista including all the updates following
Out of date versions of
Adobe Air
Adobe Flash
Adobe Reader
Java
Siliverlight
Firefox
Quicktime
Toolbars
Ask
Alot
Mywebsearch
Conduit
Default tab.

malwarebytes isn't worth using for free even though :/

couldn't even handle simple malware and didn't even blink an eye at other more serious ones when I was testing it out yesterday
