Ver. 10 HIPS bugs in ESET Internet Security & ESET Smart Security Premium Posted December 12, 2016 Interesting - I think I ran into the same situation. After a couple of weeks on HIPS learning mode and seeing over a thousand rules created by very active use (many of which did, indeed, look like duplicates), I reverted to interactive mode and immediately started getting lots of notifications. Needless to say, I reverted to smart mode quickly. Hopefully, fixing this bug will allow learning mode to serve its purpose.
