    We now realize the issues ESET’s NOD32 AMON service caused with the shared folders on WHS. Is this new product a dedicated product FOR WHS? (I did not see it mentioned) Or is this just another version of NOD32?

  2. Hi TheJudge,

    This new suite is not a dedicated product for WHS. I am currently testing it and will post my findings soon.
