  1. Hello @SlashRose, Thanks for reporting. I just enabled B&PP again to test and can confirm that the new B&PP module 1199 does indeed fix the issue of crashing Edge 86...
  2. Hello @Marcos, Thank you for your reply and I look forward to an update as to the status of this issue 👍 !
  3. Hello, I can verify and confirm this issue as it also occurs on my system when trying to use "Banking & Payment Protection" with the most recent stable version of Microsoft Edge Chromium (86.0.622.38 released yesterday Oct. 8). Edge crashes and closes every time it is launched and the only way to use Edge is without B&PP enabled.
  4. Hello @cutting_edgetech, While you are on the "Network connections" tab in the ESET GUI, right click in the "Network connections" pane and uncheck "Show only TCP connections". UDP connections should now show along with the TCP connections. I hope this helps...
  5. Hello @BrianE, Here you go: Future changes to ESET NOD32 Antivirus Future changes to ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium
  6. Hello @100, I was thinking that this discussion has gone a bit off topic. You may have a better chance of receiving a definitive answer to your question if you start your own thread and topic... Perhaps with a title like "How can I determine if all of my modules are up to date?" or "How can I determine the most recent module versions available?". Just a thought...
  7. Hello @100, Only "Signaturdatenbank: 15765P (20170718)" will have the "P" at the end of the module version number. None of the others will. This was changed a while back but I do not remember the date. There is no easy way that I know of to tell exactly which module is a pre-release version or a regular version. You can always switch to the pre-release updates to see what module version you will have and then if you are uncomfortable staying on pre-release updates, you can switch back to regular updates. It could also be possible that maybe a staff member could comment on the current
  8. Hello @100, @User is on pre-release updates. Maybe you are using regular updates?
  9. Hello @cindyatgreenacres and welcome to the ESET Security Forum! The first thing I would check is your "Webcam Protection Rules". If you do not know how to do this follow these steps: Right-click the ESET tray icon and click "Advanced setup". In the left-hand panel, click "DEVICE CONTROL". In the main panel, click "WEBCAM PROTECTION". To the right of "Rules", click "Edit". A new window appears which will list all webcam rules that you have created, if any. See if the application that is being blocked from accessing your webcam is listed. If it
  10. Hello SCR and itman, Thanks for both of your replies. Thanks for your feedback and I agree with you, learning something new is always a good thing. As far as the HIPS goes, the only wildcard symbol official supported by Eset at the present time is "*". It also is only allowed at the end of the path name e.g. C:\Windows\Temp\*. It means "this folder's files and all subordinate folders and files." I and others have been bugging Eset for some time to modify the HIPS for allow the same wildcards and use thereof that all allowed for the AV scanner. I agree totally with you, i
  11. Hello SCR, I have never had the need to exclude files or folders in ESET either. I had been using HitmanPro.Alert but decided to beta test the Malwarebytes 3.0 since I have three lifetime licenses. As far as the exclusions that I have made for Malwarebytes in my testing, I have not noticed any performance improvements either (RAM, CPU, speed, or otherwise). It is just with my testing that I had the questions about exclusions for folders and sub-folders, so I decided to ask for for my own learning and knowledge of ESET products.
  12. Hello SCR and itman, Thank you both for your replies. I usually do not exclude anything either but I have been experimenting thus these questions came to mind. I have been alpha and beta testing the new Malwarebytes 3.0 and there have been some performance issues. In my experience, Malwarebytes and ESET have never worked well together performance wise on my machine. In testing, I wanted to exclude both programs entirely from each other to theoretically eliminate performance issues between the two to a minimum and possibly better evaluate Malwarebytes 3.0 on its own performance level. I do
  13. Hello, I have two questions regarding folder exclusions that I really have not been able to find a definitive answer for: I am almost certain of the following so I am only asking for verification. If I enter the following as an exclusion: C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\*.* - then only the files in that folder will be excluded from scanning, not any of the sub-folders. This is the one that I am not sure about and need to know if it works or not. If I enter the following as an exclusion: C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\* - does this exclude the folder and all of the s
  14. Hello throwaway9, IMHO, the default settings provide both ample security and protection with good performance. The changes in settings that I have made from the defaults are mainly just to satisfy my preferences and do not really increase security.
  15. Hello throwaway9, I am glad to hear that your upgrade went smoothly. At present, it does not look like ESET has any plans on discontinuing ESS anytime in the foreseeable future. I base this on the fact that ESET is still offering renewals for ESS. As to the blue highlights (blue dots with numbers inside), they just show what settings that have been changed from the defaults. For example from your screenshot, the blue highlight/dot with a "1" inside besides the "HIPS" selection means one setting in that category has been changed from the default setting. If it had been a "2" or "3", for e
  16. Hello throwaway9, It is talking about the possibility that you may need to reinstall your network drivers from the computer manufacturer. This is only a very remote possibility that you may have to do this as I have never seen it happen. This is only mentioned just in case you lose network connectivity but I personally have never seen it happen. More that likely, you will not have any issues. The backup of those settings are just in case. As long as after you finish, you can still connect to the internet, you have nothing to worry about. Version 10 does not use those particular drivers any
  17. Hello Quant, You have a license for ESS - which means that you can install ESS, EIS, or NOD32 AV. ESS and EIS are the same except ESS has anti-theft which EIS does not have. If you use the anti-theft module, then install ESS. If you do not use the anti-theft module, then I would install EIS. It is up to you. I hope this helps ...
  18. Hello amir, This is turned off by default in version 10. You need to change the setting as in the screenshot below. No problem here. On my system, the initial scan was a bit slow but after that the scans are faster than version 9. I hope this helps ...
  19. Hello throwaway9, I am not sure but I think the installer will automatically uninstall ESS 9 but I am not positive. If it were me (since you are both changing from ESS to EIS and doing a major version upgrade from 9 to 10), I would uninstall ESS 9 first (How do I uninstall ESET Smart Security or ESET NOD32 Antivirus in Windows 10? or Uninstall my ESET home product in Windows 8). To ensure a clean install of EIS 10, I would then follow the instructions here: Manually uninstall my Windows ESET product to remove any leftovers. Yes, you would... Do not worry about using another spot/sea
  20. Hello throwaway9, Thanks for the link to that kb article ! Yes, if you license is for Smart Security, you can use it for Smart Security, Internet Security, or the Anti-Virus . Hope this helps ...
  21. Hllo xxJackxx, Good points... I agree with your comments. I made a post in a different thread concerning these same thoughts... https://forum.eset.com/topic/9886-upgrading-to-version-10/ ESS is still available for purchase on the www.eset.com site, so not really sure what that means. What is the URL for the knowledgebase article that you quoted that from? It does not mean that you cannot get version 10. It seems that I may be wrong about this... Yesterday, when I was looking at the www.eset.com website, I was fairly sure I saw ESS still available for purchase, but today it does app
  22. Hello throwaway9, ESS is still available for purchase on the www.eset.com site, so not really sure what that means. What is the URL for the knowledgebase article that you quoted that from? It does not mean that you cannot get version 10. It seems that I may be wrong about this... Yesterday, when I was looking at the www.eset.com website, I was fairly sure I saw ESS still available for purchase, but today it does appear that it is only available for renewal and/or download, not as a new purchase. I also noticed that if you tried to purchase ESS, you were taken to the EIS page...
  23. Hello throwaway9, No, no need to uninstall ESS 9. It can take a few days to a few weeks for the update to become available through the program. If you do not want to wait, you can download the installer and install version 10 "over the top" without having to uninstall ESS 9. ESS is still available for purchase on the www.eset.com site, so not really sure what that means. What is the URL for the knowledgebase article that you quoted that from? It does not mean that you cannot get version 10. If you license is for Smart Security, you can use it for Smart Security, Internet Securit
  24. Hello Marcos, Thanks for confirming the issue and gathering logs for the developers !
  25. Hello, I see the same issue with ESSP 10.0.369.0 using pre-release updates. 24 modules downloaded at each update (approx. 85 MB), whether the update is done manually or scheduled/automatic.
