    Nightowl gave kudos to Marcos in Move my product to a new pc   
    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.

    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.

    I might be mistaken , but all these software are useless and they provide headache more than they provide calmness.

    We detect spying and other malware regardless of its origin. If I recall correctly, the CEO of ESET stated this publicly in the past.

    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.

    Most usually people who pay their ransom get the decryption key back without any problem, but whatever if you try to decrypt with a decryptor that isn't supported , data could get damaged as far as I know.

    It might just be a coincidence, but I just restarted the router and all of my devices and Eset is just fine now. Updates and LiveGrid connect okay. 😀

    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

    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.

    Nightowl gave kudos to Marcos in ESET to support development of a Coronavirus PCR test in Slovakia, donates the first 100,000 samples   
    Machine translation:
    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.
