  1. So basically in default mode ESET firewall behaves like Windows firewall.
  2. Seriously? What is a typical name for a malware? And, a typical malware is crafted to be detected? What would you expect, a malware with name virus.exe?
  3. Confused : All threads cleaned

    Exactly! Usually I cancel this scan, but this time I was busy An ESET finished the scan, scanning all my "Test" folders. 36 "potentially unwanted" were found, unfortunately I really want to keep them. Back to the subject in hand , I do not like the philosophy "You don't have to care what action was exactly performed". In fact I DO CARE very much about what action was exactly performed; that' why I spend time to set "Threat sense" in a hundred places. If a file was "disinfected" I would rather install it again as new, rather than having a "disinfected" one. So, if this is the idea, why not having a big red button on the end of the scan with a "FIX ALL" message????
  4. Confused : All threads cleaned

    Somebody who wants ESET because is highly customizable ( I count more than 120 parameters) most likely is interested to know WHAT EXACTELY HAS BEEN DONE.
  5. Confused : All threads cleaned

    Cleaning means "any" of 1,2,3 or all of them at the same time ?? In 2, there is "deleting the whole malicious file or cleaning the malicious code ... or sanitizing the file " . How an user is supposed to know which "or" happened? Wouldn't be more logical to know EXACTELY what happened????
  6. ESET 98.2%...

    Kaspersky, Avira, BitDefender and TrendMicro are consistently on top of 99.9% (most of the time 100%) There is no tweak which can improve security without affecting something else (like FP)
  7. Did a full computer scan and the final message is : Threads found 36 (Cleaned :All) So , in fact what happened? 1. all 36 threads were cleaned , the "malware component" has been removed and the files are still in place OR 2. all 36 threads were deleted permanently OR 3. all 36 threads were moved to Quarantine Wouldn't be much easier to have some sort of explanation ? Example: Threads found 36 (Deleted 6 ; Cleaned 22: Moved to Quarantine 8)
  8. ESET 98.2%...

    You are right about ESET having the lowest system impact, I ca feel it . It is disappointing though to see ESET not participating anymore in AVTest, in order to avoid criticism. I doubt Microsoft has a dedicated team to pass AV test or AV comparatives.
  9. ESET "product is outdated" nag

    Answer from "Suport": "If you're attempting to activate ESET NOD32 Antivirus Version 8, you will need to use your username and password instead of your license key. Whatever I buy today, has only licence key.
  10. OK then, that means 23 from 66 antiviruses on Virus Total must be stupid to classify this as "Trojan" when in fact doesn't pose any security risk. Well done, ESET!
  11. See what the OP is saying...
  12. Most detection are " Trojan" or "Trojan something" Definition of Trojan (by Kaspersky): A Trojan horse or Trojan is a type of malware that is often disguised as legitimate software. Trojans can be employed by cyber-thieves and hackers trying to gain access to users' systems. Users are typically tricked by some form of social engineering into loading and executing Trojans on their systems. Once activated, Trojans can enable cyber-criminals to spy on you, steal your sensitive data, and gain backdoor access to your system. These actions can include: Deleting data Blocking data Modifying data Copying data Disrupting the performance of computers or computer networks I do not understand how ESET classifies this as "unsafe application" which doesn't pose any security risk......
  13. ESET 98.2%...

    AV Test : Protection against 0-day ..................228 samples Detection of widespread and prevalent malware discovered in the last 4 weeks ..............4877 samples So it is not about 400 samples, is more about 4000 samples from the last 4 weeks; the samples are the same for each and every AV tested, so why ESET doesn't perform better? It is not like they will test ESET with a set of "difficult" samples and the rest of them with "regular" samples.
  14. ESET 98.2%...

    Out of curiosity! Compared with MSE , ESET seems to be over sophisticated, with literally hundreds of settings, shields, adjustments, etc. Somehow I hopped that , with sophistication , performance will come, but in the last 12 months (or more) ESET performed in the second league in AV Test and AV Comparatives. Moreover, recently ESET is no longer in AV Test. Compared with ESET, MSE seems to be a skeleton of antivirus, yet in the last year performed better and better, with the recent result of 100% (some user dependent) And is free. That's why.
  15. ESET 98.2%...

    ... in latest AV Comparatives /April 2018. MSE free, 100%. And everyone insists to update to the latest v11, which offers greater protection....
