  1. From looking at the picture in the initial post, EIS v12.2.23.0 should not have the directory branch "C:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET Smart Security". The correct branch is "C:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET Security". It seems you may have leftovers from a much older installation.
  2. You'll now find it in Advanced setup under Tools -> Notifications -> BASIC -> Display notification about successful update
  3. I had the same problem as you some time back. A complete uninstall and install from scratch resolved it.
  4. I've finally got everything up and running. There was an old epfwlwf driver package in the driverstore's file repository. Once this package was removed, EIS installed successfully.
  5. I tried that and I'm back where I started with no firewall. Personal firewall: An error occurred during installation of the epfwlwf driver.
  6. It would seem from my findings that it is Ekrn that initiates the loading of epfwlwf.sys and not the Service Control Manager. If I remove the directory tree that I created - "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Drivers\epfwlwf\EpfwLwf.sys" then epfwlwf is never loaded.
  7. Unfortunately this results in an install error: The INF file you selected does not support this method of installation
  8. I may have spoken to soon. Even though Process Explorer shows epfwlwf.sys loaded under System, Windows event logs show the following error: Service Control Manager EventID 7026 The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: EpfwLWF
  9. I think I've found the problem through using a process monitor bootlog. Ekrn.exe first looks for epfwlwf.sys in the directory C:\Windows\System32\Drivers If the driver is not found, Ekrn then (and finally) looks for the driver in "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Drivers\epfwlwf\EpfwLwf.sys". Obviously this path does not exist, hence installation fails. I created the path "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Drivers\epfwlwf\EpfwLwf.sys" then rebooted and installation of epfwlwf succeeded.
  10. Win 7x64 EIS I'm having a problem with getting the firewall and associated network protections to function. An error is logged: An error occurred during installation of the epfwlwf driver. I've tried (twice) removing EIS in safe mode using the ESET uninstaller and installing from scratch, but still the error remains. Any feedback to troubleshoot the problem would be appreciated. I enabled advanced logging, rebooted, disabled logging and ran ESET Log Collector. Logs attached. eis_logs.zip
  11. Having read restriction capability in the files section is a feature I suggested long ago. Hopefully ESET will finally see the merits of this.
  12. This is about being able to block selected applications reading data from folders that I select. i.e. being able to prevent batch file, js, vbs execution from typical malware user space folders.
  13. In HIPS File Operations - the ability to Block file read for specific applications like cmd.exe, rundll32.exe, regsvr32.exe etc
