  1. 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. Seems a bug has been introduced with this build.
  2. 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
  3. I've noticed the same issue, I just haven't got around to investigating it. BTW, hourly update also wakes my additional HDD. To run WPR you need to install the WPT (Windows Performance Toolkit) by downloading ADK from hxxp://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=39982 Edit: attached trace trace.zip
  4. In windows 7, any attempt to terminate an ESET process from task manager fails and displays the following message box
  5. If you have a master password set for firefox logins and passwords, then this is what worked for me. Disable SSL scanning in Eset, then temporarily disable the master password in firefox. Enable SSL scanning and check whether you still get the error notification. Hopefully it is now fixed. Finally, set your firefox master password.
  6. Having read restriction capability in the files section is a feature I suggested long ago. Hopefully ESET will finally see the merits of this.
  7. 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.
  8. In HIPS File Operations - the ability to Block file read for specific applications like cmd.exe, rundll32.exe, regsvr32.exe etc
