  1. Hi, I have the following problem I cannot fix. I have a small Volumio-based computer as an audio server, which has a samba share setup. I can access this samba share without problems from Ubuntu-based computers. My Windows 10 Home computer however, can only see and access this share only if I disable the Eset Internet Security Firewall. So it is obvious the firewall is blocking access to the remote share. I have tried the following things without success: 1. delete all rules in the firewall, for a fresh start 2. deleted the known network and configured it as a trusted network when asked by Eset IS 3. added the ip addres of the remore system to the Trusted zone 4. added and to the trusted zone 5. disabled services "allow file and printer sharing in the trusted zone" and "windows homegroup support", and enabled them again Not one of these has helped. What am I missing here? Note: that particular Volumio server does show up in the Windows Explorer as a media device, and I can access its web server without any problem through its IP address.
  2. For additional info,I would liek to share my expertience: On two different computers with Ubuntu 16.04, Chrome and Chromium version 79.x crash, with or without Nod32. Also after uninstalling and reinstalling all products and rebooting in between. On pone of these computers I have removed chrome and chromium, and installed the snap version of chromium version 79. This runs without issue, also when Nod32 ins running! On Windows 10 (10.0.14393) With Eset Internet Security I experience no problem with Chrome 79.x. Hope this helps.
  3. I run my first smart scan of Nod32 on Ubuntu 16.04LTS. As far as I can tell with the 1 million + files in the log, all of them could not be opened by NOD32, giving an "unable to open" error. What could be wrong with it? Do I need to change permissions, and if so, how? Running version, Virus sig db 18180. Thanks, Pieter
  4. Like I explained in my first post, I did: I received a copy of the original license email with just the license code and public key, that's it.
  5. Well, this is a big bummer. So my Internet Security license was about to expire, and instead of renewing my license, I bought a complete new one, which was a hell of a lot cheaper. In this case, a Multi-Device Security license for 3 devices. Received a nice email with a license code, WHICH I CAN NOT USE TO ACTIVATE NOD32 For Linux, FCOL!, This product requires a user name and a password, but since I have a completely new license, it also has a new user name and password. No mention is made in the email I received for this new license of user name or password, only a license key and public key. Searching the internet and various Eset websites only keeps me running around in circles. By now I have found the corresponding EAV user name for this new license, but there seems to be no way of getting the password for that user name. Using the web pages to request this info only sends me a copy of the license email I already received. THIS IS REALLY ME OFF! No way to contact the ESET helpdesk, since it is weekend and X-mas as well. Anyone knows a way of recovering that password for the EAV user name, perhaps some hidden web page that doesn't turn up in searches?
  6. I tried to make a dump file, but it terminates with an error message: "The operation could not be completed. The data is invalid". It seems this has to do with ekrn.exe being 32 bits on a 64 bit Windows 7. How can I make a dump file that the Eset people succesfully can work with? Btw, creating the dump file increased the memory used by ekrn.exe from 600MB to 1GB!!
  7. I usually do not restart my computer, but prefer to hybernate it. I only restart it about twice a month (e.g. after windows update). I will reboot and see what happens. If the problem returns, I will post again.
  8. In the windows task manager, ekrn.exe is using 615 MB of memory. All program modules are up to date. Is such an amount of memory usage normal for ESS 8?
  9. P.S. when I change the time and then synchronize again, I do not get any requests from the ESS firewall.
  10. Using process explorer, I found the following process tree: wininit.exe -> svchost.exe -> sdiagnhost.exe -> ping.exe Does this mean anything? Perhaps anything malicious?
  11. All of a sudden, ESS firewall is asking permision for the PING command. It requests access to the two DNS servers of my ISP. When I look in task manager, I see the command: c:\windows\system32\ping.exe time.windows.com /n 2 Anyone any ideas what is happening here, is it safe?
