updagrade to v9 or v8 older version , advises?


Recommended Posts

hi

i'm running the last v8 on all my pc , w10 with the last anniversary update is a nightmare for me , i restore an image prioor the anniversary update

 

well , i have several friends ,they running older version on w8.1 and w7 , like v5 , v6 and v7

 

now my question , to updagrade from v5/6/7 to v8 (for now) is much better to avoid every issues?

 

 

1) download the v8 full installl and install over the older version (5/6 or 7)

 

2) export the settings , unintall maybe use the cleaner developed by eset , install v8 and import the V5/6/7 settings (it include hips and firewall rules)

 

 

thanks

best regards

We'd recommend using the latest v9 or simply wait a bit for v10 to be released and upgrade then. If you want to preserve rules, I'd recommend installing v9/v10 over an older version. Note that unlike older versions, v9+ evaluates rules from the top to the bottom in the order they appear in the list. Older versions evaluated firewall rules from less general to more general while blocking rules took precedence over allowing rules.

During upgrade, more specific rules (or rules with the block action if more are equally specific) should be put higher in the list of rules to ensure that they will work the same way as before the upgrade.

Hi Mantra

Protection is not something you see, it is something you have.

Version 5 is very old, and there have been a lot of improvement all about the product.

What is keeping you from upgrading?

I can only speak for myself, but I would hate being infected, and knowing it could have been prevented if I had upgraded my av
