Nightowl gave kudos to Marcos in ESET to support development of a Coronavirus PCR test in Slovakia, donates the first 100,000 samples
Scientists from Slovak companies MultiplexDX, Lambda Life and ProScience Tech have joined forces with virologists from the Biomedical Center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (BMC SAV) to build a reagent kit according to the World Health Organization (WHO) protocol for reliable detection of SARS-CoV-2. In the first phase they plan to produce and make available 100,000 PCR tests. The ESET Foundation supported the development of the test and finances the first 100,000 pieces to be offered as a gift to the Slovak Republic.
Key components have been developed and manufactured by MultiplexDX, a company dedicated to developing and manufacturing innovative reagents for various molecular diagnostic methods. The Slovak PCR test is currently being validated in cooperation with a team of scientists from the BMC SAS. Preliminary results show not only the functionality but also the good sensitivity of the new test, comparable to the currently used diagnostics. “This means that our test is reliable and accurate and can help diagnose early-stage patients. We can produce key components for 100,000 PCR tests in two weeks, ”explains Pavol Čekan, founder of MultiplexDX.
“In the process of validation and subsequent registration of the resulting report we cooperate with the non-profit organization CCCT SK. It will be estimated to take about three weeks, ”said Adam Andráško of ProScience Tech. "Virus detection consists of sample collection, RNA isolation and PCR diagnostics itself, with our joint efforts focused on the last step," said Ivan Juráš of Lambda Life. “I believe that the efforts of our scientists will be crowned with success, and we will have enough PCR tests from our own resources as important as coronavirus detection. This will help Slovakia not only in continuous testing, but we will also create a reserve in case there is a shortage of tests in the world, ”notes Robert Mistrík from the permanent crisis staff.
The ESET Foundation supported the development of the test and provided funding for the first 100,000 units from the COVID-19 Effective Diagnosis and Prevention Fund. These tests will be offered as a gift to Slovak state institutions. “When creating the Fund, it was important for us to ensure effective mass-scale diagnostics, which can only be achieved through science. Even in such a critical situation, the importance of supporting science in Slovakia, which we have been dedicated to for a long time, thus proves important, ”says Richard Marko, CEO of ESET.
Production capacities will primarily be available to diagnostic laboratories in Slovakia after the first 100,000 tests have been used. “We are ready to cooperate with state laboratories, flexibly respond to their needs and supply them efficiently. After meeting the needs of Slovak Laboratories, we can direct our capacities to other countries that would need our products, ”explains the authors of the test.

The team responsible was able to determine the root cause of the issue.
Fix will be prepared, tested on test environment and deployed to production.
Consoles has been restarted to resolve the issue until permanently fixed, so you should be able to access your ECA right now.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused,

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 :
Nightowl received kudos from peteyt in ESET to create a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus
This is very nice of ESET
Also for people who are interested to give their computer power to help solve the problem you can do this using Folding@Home , https://foldingathome.org/2020/03/15/coronavirus-what-were-doing-and-how-you-can-help-in-simple-terms/
But that will use most of the CPU and GPU if it's running on your computer , it will help scientists find a formula against the Corona.
I hope it will be good and peaceful all over the world.
Nightowl gave kudos to Marcos in ESET to create a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus
ESET has been protecting users worldwide for decades already and have always provided state-of-the-art protection. While it was always our digital worlds that ESET has been protecting, now with the epidemic of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus the need to protect also users themselves became inevitable. Besides supporting various scientific and charity events, we are now creating a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, giving 300,000 EUR to support the purchase of a diagnostic system capable of analyzing 4000 samples per day.
By purchasing ESET's products you can be sure that you also support science and charity.
Recognizing the seriousness of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus spread, ESET has decided to engage in the fight against the epidemic in Slovakia. The ESET Foundation has therefore set up a COVID-19 Effective Diagnosis and Prevention Fund, to which ESET will contribute EUR 300,000. The amount will be increased later if necessary. The aim of the newly established fund is to provide, in the first phase, the necessary equipment for improving the quality of diagnostics and introducing comprehensive testing in Slovakia.
Since its inception, ESET has dedicated itself to the diagnosis of computer viruses and is symbolic to support the diagnosis of biological viruses in this situation. Even at such moments, the importance of science, which can make a significant contribution to solving the situation, has been shown. ESET Foundation supports science and research and is the organizer of the ESET Science Award.
“We have set up a fund to support the effective diagnosis and prevention of coronavirus because we believe that only a systematic scientific approach will help us manage this epidemic. At the same time, it is essential that we think ahead today and take steps to relaunch the economy. General and systematic testing of the population will help in returning the employees to the work process and thus also help the Slovak economy, ” explains Richard Marko, CEO of ESET.
Through the Fund, ESET will support the purchase of high-performance diagnostic equipment, the development of systems for more efficient online diagnostics, or contribute to the cost of operating or collecting and transporting samples. Public and private medical diagnostic institutions and laboratories operating in Slovakia that are authorized to diagnose this type or to take and transport SARS-CoV-2 related samples may receive financial support. These institutions can contact the ESET Foundation at nadacia[at]eset.sk . The expert guarantor in the evaluation of the use of the fund's resources is the recognized Slovak chemist Robert Mistrík.
“After the first discussions, we are considering co-financing the purchase of the Roche cobas 8800 System, or co-financing its operation. This device is able to do real-time RT-PCR tests at lower unit cost and shorter time in automatic mode. It can evaluate up to 4,000 samples in a single day. We will look for a partner to operate this device. Of course, the fund will also be open to other solutions supporting its goal, ” concludes Robert Mistrík, the fund's expert guarantor.

Ubuntu is good for starting and also for advanced , but for GUIs take a look at :
LinuxMINT Cinammon looks a bit like W7 if you are interested
For me I use MATE , It's great.
You can also download the LTS edition , which will make your upgrades every few years(major operating system upgrade) , and also LTS is considered to be more stable , but the newer versions have newer features but I would go with LTS for sure
Put it on a USB and run it as a live image , and test the linux as much as you want , when you will restart you will go back to your Windows normally , so that way you can give Linux a try , or fire it up in a virtual machine

I have a local account. I do not use online anytihng for this win10 debacle. I have SHUTUP switch off almost everything. I have no one drive, I have no microsoft accounts.
microspasm have, over the years, clearly demonstrated their mistrust, disgust and lack of customer service for the very people who made them the global garbage patch they now are.
As for a Linux recommendation, clearly, the front runner for new folk is Ubuntu. The GUI has evolved vastly over the years, it is stable, useful and easy to get to grips with. The standard desktop version contains all the workable software you would likely need. Installing more software is a doddle and there is a world of passionate, dedicated expert-like folk who will gladly offer any free assistance.
There is NO activating online. There is (almost) no snooping - firefox, etc will have crash report info sent off but these things can easily be disabled. Almost everything you could want will be available as Open Source or GPL, etc so no worries about purchasing things.
Virtualisation runs far better on the Linux platform than windows via KVM/QEMU. The only caveat that I have encountered is that cut/paste between host/guest and shared folders are a bit trickier to set up than would be the case with a windows setup. However, if you don't want a more hardware-centric virtualisation then you can still employ virtualbox which operates as well as virtualbox does anywhere.
Software development tools do NOT require 10Gb or more of install as one gets with visual studio. By the same token, no registration is required such as microspasm force one into so they can spy on more of your activities.
If one is a non-gaming user, Linux is ideal. If one is a business user, it could also be ideal but for the fact that the bulk of businesses use BackOffice tools - especially exchange/outlook; the latter of which has been altered so it is not so user-friendly any longer.
I was weaned on UNIX (SYSV) and have been a ms/windows tech-type since MSDOS 3.x and windows 3. With every subsequent release, I have disliked windows less and UNIX-like more.
The day windows is history will be a glorious day for the whole world!
P.S. Once you feel confident enough you can even recompile your Linux kernel to streamline it to your tastes and speed-up your boot times. Personally, I have not recompiled a kernel since using Slakware but it is fun to try and would take far less time today than the 4-7 hours it used to take using pre-pentium intel chips back in 1993.
Nightowl gave kudos to Steelskin in Chrome 79 always starts a core dump and crashes
Any news on a fix for us Linux users who use Chrome, Chromium etc 😕 I see there is no mention on the Eset website. Is it too much to ask of Eset that they actually 'officially' acknowledge that there is a problem and they have a plan of action. I really do detest companies that don't keep their customers in the loop about progress (if any).

A few final comments:
1. Never ever install a browser extension/add-on from a web site request. Always install the extension from the Store associated with that particular browser.
2. Never ever absolutely assume that a browser Store extension/add-on is 100% safe. Google notoriously and Firefox to a lesser extent do not test their Store extensions for malware prior to being placed in the Store. Apps are usually removed only after someone has discovered one is malicious or potentially unwanted status.
3. Configure your browser such that extensions/add-on's are not automatically added. In other words, you must manually allow the request.
4. AV solutions are as a rule are quite poor in detecting browser extension/add-on malware. This is because the app is not a stand-alone executable but running as a processing extension to the browser.

Buy through your browser , not the software , you may or may not receive a username among the cd-key , if you only received a cd-key , you will need to convert it to username and password , an ESET staff can help you with this

We have recently discovered a problem sending customer care requests from the built-in form in ESET NOD32 for Linux desktop. I would recommend contacting ESET LLL via the web form or phone. We are working on a resolution to make the internal form work.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Nightowl received kudos from Agathon in Using eset authentication server (with eset firewall as default)
Unfortunately there is no courses for ESET as far as I know
But your ideal way for this is to install one of the either , ESS or EIS , you can firewall your RDP port which is TCP port 3389 to your IP Addresses so that will rest your mind that only yourself can connect
but probably your provider has some built in firewall in your c-panel which can help you protect your VS
If you can create Virtual Machines like in Google Cloud , it's fun to try OPNSENSE if you like to make some projects.
Nightowl received kudos from santoso in How To Know Infected PC
The worm is replicating itself from one of the computers or shares in the Network , ESET won't be able to remove it from the remote location , it will only be able to protect the computer that it's installed on
You need to clean the worm from the infected PC/share , first of all you should disconnect it from the network to prevent it from keep trying replicate itself to others, then you try to clean it off and make sure the machine is fine and then you put it back to the network.

Nightowl received kudos from Peter282 in Check of update status of all network computers.
Your current license should cover you to upgrade your Endpoints and your current server to the current versions
As also Marcos said the File Server license will be included among the Endpoints.
You also need to watch out while using Windows 7 , it left the support , unless you buy support from Microsoft.
Nightowl gave kudos to M.K. in Remove any macro in Microsoft Office documents
in Mail Security there is an option to define a custom rule to move all emails containing macro-enabled office documents to quarantine. You need to define an Attachment type condition and mark "Microsoft Office Macro-Enabled Document (97-2003)", "Microsoft Word Macro-Enabled (2007+) (*docm, *dotm)", etc...
