  1. I wanted to follow up to my original post, dated July 1, about focus stealing. I updated to the new release a week or so ago and have not experienced any focus stealing since. Thank you for the solution! --Tim
  2. Since the recent Eset core update some months ago, I've been experiencing frustration with Eset's stealing focus from whatever program I happen to be working in when a scan starts up (no scheduled scans). I can be working in Microsoft Word, typing along on a document, and suddenly realize that nothing's appearing because focus was stolen. Same with email compositions, spreadsheets, Adobe applications, web browsing, browsing files... pretty much ANY activity! I thought I'd read on this site that this is a known issue which will be corrected in a future Eset update, but there has been no information as to when that will be. The workaround solution, I discovered, is to enable Gamer Mode; I have not experienced an instance of stolen focus for the past week, although seeing the orange exclamation mark atop the Eset icon in the toolbar still has me rolling my eyes. Disabling the Gamer Mode resumes the stolen focus issue, of course, so for now I guess this is a "permanent" new setting Eset users will need to simply accept? --Timothy Kline ================================== Eset Internet Security, Version, Running on Windows 8.1 with latest Microsoft updates Detection Engine: 19603 (20190629) Rapid Response module: 14460 (20190629) Update module: 1014 (20180123) Antivirus and antispyware scanner module: 1552.4 (20190613) Advanced heuristics module: 1192 (20190204) Archive support module: 1288 (20190606) Cleaner module: 1194 (20190522) Anti-Stealth support module: 1151 (20190326) Firewall module: 1389 (20190510) ESET SysInspector module: 1275 (20181220) Translation support module: 1747 (20190612) HIPS support module: 1358 (20190429) Internet protection module: 1367 (20190521) Web content filter module: 1071 (20190605) Advanced antispam module: 7807 (20190625) Database module: 1106 (20190605) Configuration module (33): 1745.7 (20190326) LiveGrid communication module: 1053 (20190321) Specialized cleaner module: 1012 (20160405) Banking & payment protection module: 1153 (20190618) Rootkit detection and cleaning module: 1019 (20170825) Network protection module: 1680 (20190403) Router vulnerability scanner module: 1062 (20190515) Script scanner module: 1052 (20190618) Connected Home Network module: 1030.2 (20190424) Cryptographic protocol support module: 1028.1 (20190327) Databases for advanced antispam module: 3007 (20190629) Deep behavioral inspection support module: 1078 (20190530)
  3. I've run ESS in tandem with Malwarebytes (Pro version) as my defense against nonsense since... well, for a very long time now, and never had any problems with either program--or any infections, for that matter. It's a brilliant duo, in my experience. MBAM doesn't offer a real-time scanner in their free version, however, unless you are still within the 14-day trial period where you get to enjoy the perks of the full (paid) version. --Tim
  4. That sounds a LOT easier than simply unplugging the cable. Personally, I'm looking for something a little more fine-tuned, with surgical precision, rather than a full-on sledgehammer. --Tim
  5. Now that there's been a sufficient amount of exposure about Windows 10 sending information back to Microsoft (even when the user has adjusted the privacy controls), I'm wondering if this is where Eset will be able to shine. In other words, does Eset flag via popup alerts any of the surreptitious transfers of information Windows 10 performs---and if so, what should we be looking for as they're detected and brought to our attention? Has anyone started listing them somewhere? Thanks, in advance! --Timothy Kline
  6. I've upgraded four systems now to Windows 10, three of which had/have eset Smart Security installed. On my main PC, which I upgraded first, the upgrade process seemed to go well (albeit it took a lot longer than I expected it to). However, on the first reboot following the completion of the upgrade, I had a bsod but the error flashed too quickly and the system rebooted, and subsequently went into the desktop without any additional issues. At least it seemed so. I seemed to have *no* internet access, even though the taskbar's network icon showed I was connected just fine. Then I noticed most of the usual icons that appear down in the taskbar clock area were not there, either. It was only on a hunch that I went to the Start menu to load up eset, and I was shown the new network detected window, and I set it for the right access type, and suddenly all of the icons started loading like I'm used to. Something that happens during the changeover to Windows 10 *must* include the networking feature, because not only did this quirk with eset appear, but my VMWare Workstation network also stopped working and telling me that I had no connection, even though everything seemed to be correct in the virtual adapters and VM settings. After a few hours of deep Googling, I finally located a how-to that got the VMWare network going again, but it was the first confirmation I found that Windows 10 either changes or reconfigures the network settings. Others' mileage may vary, of course, and this experience may have been specific to my systems (on the second system upgrade, I was already prepared to start up eset from the Start menu to "activate" its core functions and identify the so-called "New Network Found."), but if this helps anyone who upgrades to Windows 10 and IS running the latest eSet Smart Security like I was, yet has internet issues or their system seems to be hanging---it's something worth trying. For what it's worth, Timothy Kline / ENVISIONocity
