Got it from VT. In fact, it's not detected because of the extension but with a correct extension it would be detected:
updatewins.js - JS/Kryptik.BPU trojan. The detection was created between Feb 17-20. We'll adjust it so that such files can be normally detected.

For me that's excellent for most of them .. so it depends only on your taste and opinion and experience with the software itself , I tend to like ESET more because it's been several years with it and I just don't want to move on to another product , even though I would like to try Kaspersky for a bit , but I still stay with ESET due to several years of using it and it's light.

V4 for Linux is a legacy product which doesn't support activation / deactivation. You simply enter a username and password for update and that's it. If update didn't work it must have been a glitch with your credentials that was subsequently resolved but definitely the issue could not be connected to activation.
Nightowl gave kudos to Marcos in Antivirus for mac: Kaspersky or eset?
Since you are in the official ESET forum, the answer is clear Anyways, it's a good practice also to try various products to find out if a particular AV works alright on your machine. It can happen that an AV with excellent results in tests causes performance issues in your environment and vice-versa. Should you encounter an issue while trialing ESET, you can ask here for assistance.
Nightowl gave kudos to M.K. in Remove any macro in Microsoft Office documents
a quick update to this older thread.
With the upcoming update of the Archive support module (v1303, currently on pre-release servers) it should be now possible to remove macros from office documents in incoming emails, even in previously released Mail security products.
If you define a custom rule with Attachment type condition, select "Office files/Generic OLE2 Compound Document", and choose Quarantine attachment (or Delete attachment) as an action, Office documents will be delivered without any macros.
Note: you can of course combine additional conditions in the rule to target it to specific groups or types of emails.

My Schools İT department recommended me to use İObit, nothing wrong has happened yet and hopefully never will. I dont have too many important things on my laptop so even if something does İll reset it and install windows again. Thanks again

Windows 10 can now do all of the jobs these softwares used to do when we were using XP or Vista times , like to find drivers , clean registry or whatever they do , while in the same time Microsoft recommends to never clean registry or touch it , well you can make your crazy changes while having no problems if you know what you are doing , but I believe they know their system very well
Same as drivers , it's better to take them from the manufacturer website or from Windows Update.

Moderators of this forum work either directly at the customer care in ESET HQ in Slovakia or ESET LLC in the US or they are experienced persons such as Aryeh who is a distinguished senior researcher from ESET LLC. Then there are users from the ESET staff group who help in this forum; they are typically developers who chime in to help especially with ESMC-related issues.
Nightowl gave kudos to MichalJ in Update Error?
Maybe a "Stupid" idea, but is the Windows time set correctly? There is by default a check in ESET application, that compares the date of the issue of the latest detection update, against the system time. If the system time is set in the future, it could trigger this notification, but it´s just a guess.
Nightowl gave kudos to zivkov in Eset onlines scanner new update bugged it, it is unusable
It is. We have a dispute with both of our neighbors, Bulgaria on the east and Greece on the south.
Bulgaria doesn't recognize our language/nationality, Greece doesn't recognize our country name/nationality
They both kinda think we don't exist and we are either Bulgarians or Greeks...
For things to be more interesting, we used to be a part of Yugoslavia until it got disbanded in 1990/1991 and Yugoslavia consisted of: Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Macedonia
Nightowl gave kudos to Marcos in Suggestions for ESET
Application Control is planned.
A research was already made, currently there are no plans to back up files. We focus on protection since letting malware run has always negative consequences and 100% remedy is often not possible. Not to say that backing up any files in the event of modification has adverse effect on performance and that could render the machine unusable if big files are modified.
ESET software is install-and-forget. End users use automatic mode in which they are not prompted for actions (firewall, HIPS, malware cleaning, etc.).
Patch management is not currently planned. If there is one day, it will be probably in business products. Most likely it would not be a part of ESET NOD32 Antivirus.
That is not planned. ESET uses a strong URL scanner which protects users from suspicious or malicious URLs.
Not planned. There are other add-ons and 3rd party applications for that, we make antimalware software.
Anti-keylogger is part of the secured browser used by Banking and payment protection.
Not sure if this is planned but there's a chance we'll have it in the future.
I have no clue what you mean. Both the peer and server would have to support it so SSL is best thing for securing connection.
Behavior Blocker as well as HIPS and other malware are constantly being improved.
ESET has always been able to clean malware, e.g. if infected by Virut or other file infecting virus. Cleaning is not possible if a virus rewrites vital data in files.
Again, we make antimalware software. There are other vendors that make hypervizors, such as VMware, Oracle, etc.

Oh this is very old! , I never had my hands on it , it would be awesome to have our hands on the installers again to make some fun with XP virtual machines , but I guess that is not possible
But I miss those days , golden time.
When you had to remove Norton because it's eating most of the 512MB of RAM and switching to ESET for it being light on the PC
v2 Control Panel I found it :

Update servers are currently under a higher load due to a bigger update of the Augur module. We are about to apply throttling in the next few minutes to mitigate the situation. We apologize for the inconvenience.
