  1. I am eagerly anticipating this. Regaining some of this loss of functionality from the old editor is welcome.
  2. And that, sir, just might be the deal-breaker. But I guess it's our choice to stay or go... this is a business, after all. Users don't have too much say in the costs of development. 15 years is a long time to stay with a software, after all. It's probably time to move on, and take my suggestions elsewhere.
  3. That would be great, but it's actually overkill for what I'm talking about. A simple 'expert mode' that could be toggled wherein someone who knows what he is doing can move the rules where they want would be fine. It shouldn't be 'on' by default for less experienced users, but for those of us who want it, it's invaluable. peteyt's idea about allowing the search function to access ALL of the pages of rules would also be an acceptable measure; that way we could search for say, all rules that contain 'foo' and have it return ALL of them, no matter where they are located in the ruleset
  4. I wanted to add this to my last post, but apparently I do not have permission to edit my own posts. Another thing that is a problem related to all this is when writing a new rule from scratch, using the 'add' button, the new rule always descends to the bottom of the page you are on in the rule editor. Of course, that means continually getting a finger sprain from clicking the 'up' button to locate it after writing it. I feel that when I highlight a rule and push the 'add' button, the rule I write should be generated in that location, under the rule I have highlighted, not at the bot
  5. It has always been set in Interactive mode. I have tried Learning mode and it exhibits the same behavior. Hard limit of 200 rules per page, and no way to move a rule from one page to another without my workaround. I'd love to hear from a dev who would like to move a rule from page 2 to page 1. How would he do it? Maybe it's like that silly rumor that Bill Gates once said that '640K is more memory than anyone will ever need.' Are 200 rules all anyone would ever need?
  6. Yes, and this is the problem. If a rule is #205 and you want to move it to be #190, you can't simply use the ^ button. You can only move the rule to position 201 [the first rule on the second page]. It is mind-boggling that the editor does not have the capability to move it to any position in the ruleset. So you have to work around it by using a bunch of user shenanigans: 1)move the rule to the top of the second page[#201], 2) delete rule #200, so that #201 moves onto the first page, replacing #200, 3)move it to the position on the first page where you want it, 4)manually create and ad
  7. Is there some 'hidden' option to allow all the rules to be placed on the same single page? I find it is extremely difficult and inconvenient that I can only see 200 rules; it creates problems when moving rules on the 2nd page to the 1st and vice-versa. It is also impossible to search the entire set of rules for a string. The search function only sees the current page. For example, I install a new Nvidia driver, and I add rules for the nvcontainer and etc. These rules go to the bottom of the list. Then, I use the search function when on the 2nd page, and see only the new rules. It do
  8. Hello, I am at the end of my rope. I have opened tickets, contacted the nearest ESET office by email, and still can not get a satisfactory solution/ I have been an ESET user for a decade. I lived in Thailand, and renewed my license yearly online. This year, I moved to a neighboring country [Laos]. I am unable to renew by the online process in this country. OK, that is not a problem. I bought a packaged CD and license from a large distributor here, which has branches in both countries [ADVICE.com]. When attempting to activate the license on my computer I repeatedly get the error *AC
  9. OK, I've uninstalled and reinstalled and after importing my established ruleset everything seems to have gone back to the correct behavior. The notifications window is back to normal, and the Allow/Deny notifications are back. I suspect something must have gone sideways in the automatic update routine regarding the notifications themselves. I did not check the programs you mentioned - I'm pretty sure nothing there was the culprit as they have been running through years of updates with no adverse effect. Thanks for the advice, maybe keep this thread open for a week in case something
  10. Hi Marcos, This is the only problem screen that I see so far. 'List modules' shows correctly. It was not a clean install, as I said, the system was up to date with the previous version before I went away, and returned to find it updated to .23. Yes, it has been rebooted, although not immediately after the update. eis_logs.zip
  11. Hi, I was away for a few days, and when I returned home I find that I am longer asked to allow or deny through the popup windows normally seen in interactive mode. Automatic mode seems to work, but of course removes the ability to decide myself. I am assuming that the software updated itself while I was away, and that is why I'm seeing this behavior. Also, possibly related; this area is completely blank now, meaning it shows a blank white page: ADVANCED-TOOLS-NOTIFICATIONS This reminds me of the problem a few years ago when the popup windows were actually there, bu
  12. Err, thank you for the approval. Do you think you could now approve the post that is the motivator for this message? I actually thought you would approve both at the same time, but I guess that was asking for too much. https://forum.eset.com/topic/9625-eset-9x-ui-is-a-total-disappointment-much-worse-than-before/
  13. Guys@ESET, if you are going to continue to require a moderator's approval for new posters, PLEASE issue it in a timely manner. It is extremely disappointing for a company of this size and reputation for a user to have to wait days, or even weeks [as I see in reading old complaints about the same thing] for moderation. I understand fully the reasons for the moderation, I just cannot agree at all with the long time frames required to receive it. To be honest, 24 hours is far too long in my opinion, but it would be agreeable if it were adhered to consistently. What is happening now is that
  14. I'd like to take this chance to weigh in on the OP's comments. I have to say, I agree 100% with his analysis. I've been a SS user for 8 years, and before that an NOD user for several more; I'm not a novice. I have to say that I believe version 9 to be a serious regression in usability, especially in the rules/firewall/HIPS areas. I received this update in July, and have consciously held back from commenting, thinking that because it's new, some updates would be forthcoming. They haven't. I usually give myself time to 'grow into' a new product or interface, allowing myself to form a so
