Was wondering if we should disable ESET Smart Security when we are in the process of upgrading to Windows 10?

Reason asking is that I have not been able to install ESET Smart security on any build since 10162. I do not want any trouble that I can avoid when I make the plunge to upgrade from Windows 8.1

 

cheers

Windows 10 hasn't been released yet, it should be on July 29. Updated installers will become available for download from ESET's website before that date.

Now there are more information from ESET regarding the Windows 10 upgrade: Compatibility of ESET products with Windows 10

It basically says that you can upgrade with ESS/NOD32 v7 or v8 without any problems.

 

But also note that there was just published an update (for ESS and NOD32) which adds compatibility with the (AFAIK) latest Windows 10 build, so personally I would upgrade to it before upgrading to Windows 10.

I think it does not harm to disable HIPS and real-time-protection before upgrading (as long as you do not forget to re-enable it afterwards).

However based on the instructions from ESET I linked earlier the upgrade should also be possible without disabling anything. (Otherwise they would have told so on the website or KB article)

I wasn't using Smart Security when going from 7 to 8/8.1 and I had no problems.

I think I will keep everything running. Although I will make drive image just in case.

 

I am doing a desktop now.

I updated Smart Security to the latest that supports Windows 10 first, rebooted, then performed the upgrade without disabling or turning off anything and it worked fine.
