Hi all, i am working in the ESET as a Global Digital PR. I don't want to spam this forum with advertising messages. Everything i want is to inform the community, which can help us with our beta tests that you can join.

We have recently opened public beta program for our security solution ESET Smart Security 6 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6 with some new interesting features like for example anti-theft.

You can participate by following this link: http://www.eset.com/beta/v6/

We also pick every week one 100 beta testers, who will win one year license and we prepared one little surprise :)

Please, if you have any questions, just ask, i am here for that :)

Please note that this program is a pre-release beta version of a product and not completely tested to ensure its stability or reliability.

What is beta software?

After an initial round of in-house testing, software publishers often release new programs to be tested by the public. These pre-release versions are called beta software, usually denoted by a "b" in the version number, e.g., Netscape Navigator 2.0b5. Since the publisher couldn't possibly test the software under all possible conditions, it is reasonable to expect that wider use of the software may uncover problems that were not discovered during in-house testing. The publisher expects to be notified when users find such problems so that the program can be fixed before its official release.

In general, you should expect to run into bugs whenever using any piece of beta software. These bugs may range in severity from minor features that don't work to problems that cause your computer to crash. You should decide whether the benefit of new features in a beta program outweighs the risk of program instability before choosing to use a piece of beta software. You should also be aware that UITS will not have thoroughly tested beta software, nor will the software be guaranteed by its maker, so you should not expect the same level of support as you would receive for an official release version of the program.

The goal of a beta program is to collect information regarding the performance, quality, stability, and functionality of new products in order to iron out the bugs before they are released to the general public. If you choose to use a beta program, you use it at your own risk.
