  1. Good morning, I have a weekly scan scheduled that begins at 01:00 on Saturday morning and used to take approximately an hour. in the last month or so I've noticed now twice that scans sometimes take an excessive amount of time e.g. today's has taken 10:41:50. I have attached a dump.
  2. I have been investigating issues with slow browsing using Chrome and MS (Chr)Edge primarily. I see messages such as: Resolving Host Waiting for 'www.example.com' Establishing Secure Connection There's a lot of discussion of similar issues on the Malwarebytes forums with no common denominator or solution at this time. As the only other security software I have on my computer is ESET I decided to have an investigation to see if anything I did improved the situation. It's only been a few hours but since going to: Setup | Advanced Setup | Web access protection | WEB PROTOCOLS and switching off 'Enable HTTP protocol checking' and 'Enable HTTPS checking' these issues have disappeared and browsing has not resulted in any of the messages being seen for more than a fraction of a second and the speed of rendering new pages/sites is extremely rapid. Clearly having these items disabled is far from ideal so I'd be grateful if you could look into this and advise on a way forward. Happy to provide logs and work with ESET staff to further investigate but it will have to be after 5pm UK time. The issue is not with my internet connection. I'm currently undertaking an online course using WebEx and have maintained a very good connection throughout from Monday morning until now.
  3. I've just rolled back a machine from Windows 10 v2004 to v1909 and was greeted on reboot with two ESET alerts: Detection Engine out of date ESET LiveGrid is not accessible Nothing I do updates them so I came here to read this thread. I can only assume that the servers are down. I'm in the UK.
  4. Marcos. ESET v12.0.27 very definitely DOES NOT address the annoyance of these webcam related messages. It's only slightly different to previously posted i.e. I now receive a message every time Windows boots, the first time the webcam software opens and the first time I use Skype after every reboot. You always receive a message that webcam access for (insert software name) was allowed. This despite having previously selected to remember the rule for that particular software. I don't receive the messages on subsequent uses of the various applications within the same boot of Windows.
  5. Your first three posts made no mention of the changelog; they didn't even hint at it. Comments like 'there are no great innovations' and 'Well, I'm not thrilled' add nothing. So, I ask again: what shortfalls do you believe ESET has and what 'great innovations' do you want to see? Aryeh Goretsky has stated in another thread: 'A lot of the changes in ESET V12 are either "under the hood" (e.g., not visible from within the GUI) or are refinements of the existing feature set.'
  6. Many thanks. The 'Advanced Options' don't appear when I manually navigate via https://www.eset.com/uk/home/smart-security-premium/download/ Clearly I should just ignore any UK region pages.
  7. How do you download the full installation file? Previously this was an option but it seems to have disappeared.
  8. I have just had another 'File corrupted' notification which occur quite frequently. I clicked on 'Check for Updates' and after a couple of minutes got the messages shown in the image. Any ideas?
  9. Marcos's solution works aside from the notification at boot that I still receive. I have Skype start (minimised) with Windows and it is a notification that Skype has been allowed access that I receive at boot up. ETA: My statement above was not correct. I am now receiving notifications whenever the webcam is accessed by either Skype or the Logitech software, (and at boot up from Skype).
  10. Hi Marcos, many thanks for the suggestion. That appears to have worked though I’ve not yet looked in detail at what that change in Windows settings really means and what implications it may have.
  11. The notification appears at boot and anytime the webcam is accessed by any program i.e. the Logitech software and Skype in my case. To my mind if the webcam is accessed by a program that has been granted permission and a rule created reflecting this, then the notification shouldn't be shown. It's not a big deal but is annoying.
  12. As far as I can see there's no facility to manually add a rule to the Webcam Protection. I only use Skype for Desktop and the executable is C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Skype for Desktop\Skype.exe (I have deleted the second Skype rule). The Logitech executable is C:\Program Files (x86)\Logitech\LWS\Webcam Software\Launcher_Main.exe
  13. To be clear, I have setup 3 rules permitting webcam access: 2 for Skype and 1 for the Logitech software - it's a Logitech HD webcam. Regardless of the rules, I receive an alert on every boot. At this point I choose to live with it rather than disabling Webcam Notifications but it needs correcting.
  14. Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (1803) Since the update to v11.2.63.0 everytime I boot my computer I receive a message stating that access was granted to my webcam; I know, I granted it! Is there a way to stop the notifications?
