With MBAM Pro Real-time Protect "On" (my bad) I got a"Failed Install" for the New ESET ESS V6. - ESET no longer appeared in my Start/All Programs to access "Uninstall".
Can't recall IF I Disabled MBAM Real-time on prior ESS upgrades, and the Big Question is IF Real-Time being "ON" is the Entire Issue.

Another post-er stated that by Un-installing MBAM (Pro/Free not indicated) his V6 Upgrade worked BUT he had to use the ESET Manual Uninstaller first.

In my case, JUST by Uninstalling MBAM Pro and nothing else, on Re-Boot the ESET Icon appeared in the clock area Sys tray with an "i", a Re-boot was suggested, and upon completion the entire Install appeared as OK - and ESET was in Start/All Programs.

Just witnessed an Auto-update of the ESS Virus Database, so it's working so far.

I have no idea IF I can Re-install MBAM Pro but will open a ticket.
This is just an FYI for ESS Users wanting to upgrade to ESS V6.
At Least turn Real-Time Protection to "Disabled"......................
