  1. Yes, that Process Hacker. It's under View->Windows. Look for the ESET ALERT one. Just right click, check visible/bring to front/enabled/always on top until it shows up. I'd take a screenshot but I have the Firewall disabled now and I'm just sick of fiddling with it due to this. Once I did this there were dozens hidden and showing up.
  2. I've experienced a somewhat related bug in Interactive mode. It tends to get processes (Everything from game launchers, DRM solutions to browsers) "stuck" in limbo for a random amount of time. It only occurs if it blocks the network activity of the first execution of the process, I can reproduce it reliably and prevent it from happening, but it's very tiresome. I.e Install a game, or web browser that uses a launcher or similar. Execute the new program, program tries to access DNS or a website, ESET prompts, I create a rule for allowing it via the prompt. Then the process just hangs in memory and does nothing until it's relaunched. It never actually allows traffic for a new process if I create a permanent rule for it via the prompt on first execution, it usually works on the second or third launch, never immediately as it should. The first network activity request is apparently hosed until relaunch no matter what, which wouldn't be a huge deal but I can't even kill the zombie with ProcessHacker, and some games for example will detect themselves running. (For example, Steam based) and prevent another from being launched while that one is in memory. I use interactive mode as I don't want it to blindly allow everything I run. Edit: Related to the hidden/missing/overlapping prompts? ESET locks the "Zombie" until the prompt is answered again? Speed at which network requests are sent out by the unknown/undefined application leading to it? First Execution->Prompt->Application sends more network requests, ESET more prompts while first prompt is being answered->Extra prompts "missing" (Due to first prompt being interacted with?) prompts go unanswered so application just drools in the background? Found it with ProcessHacker, some prompts are just being hidden. I can bring them forward and go through the normal shenanigans of setting up another rule, blocking it or whatever for the additional, extra prompts once I force it to be visible and bring it to the front. (Though I already did one set for the same application at the sametime.) Once done it allows the other, "zombie" process to die out peacefully.
  3. I had a crash or two with the ESO beta client, but after whitelisting it's folder and executeables everything was stable once more. This must be something special about their client or built in protection for the game itself, as it's the ONLY thing I've ever had trouble with in combination of ESET.
  4. Why does everyone fall back to the one that everyone already knows about as an example?
  5. Chromium 64 + ScriptSafe ESET Smart Security No imaging, I like managing backups and restoring manually. Lastpass+VPN (PIA)+OpenDNS+DNSCrypt I used to go all out, but I realized if I was going to "go all out" doing it under windows was hilarious at best, and I have far too many games on Steam to fool with *Nix video card driver shenanigans anymore. I don't mind nuking everything and starting over from a bare drive, I like reinstalling anyway. Though I've not had anything in several years, the last was a keylogger from some gaming related site for WoW. (Which, I've found, blocking connections to ad networks, all third party scripts and using Lastpass so I don't even type passwords, let alone am I anywhere near capable of remembering them, stops.)
  6. A night mode would be nice. Basically, colour inversion. It's kind of jarring how bright it is like this. I'm not complaining, mind you, just saying. It's overall aesthetically pleasing and feels "neat" and "professional" like this, though.
  7. That's nice, some software ties it's security to the hardware, or computer name for example so closely that re-installing the OS can lead to problems. I ended up giving in and just buying another IDM license for example after using the first one on half a dozen different motherboards/systems over the course of ten years or so, as after so many installs it just locks it, which, as someone who will randomly format, go *Nix for three months, then re-install Windows three times in a day (Tinkering with streamlining) can be an issue.
  8. Hello! I'm Nizrax, just your run of the mill computer nerd/reddit lurker/gamer. I've used ESET trials in the past on different systems, but finally got around to buying a two year license for the Smart Security product a few days ago. (I believe I convinced a friend to buy it when her trial is up, as well. We had some trouble with her system awhile back which got us both on to ESET due to my past experiences with it, and her needing something fool proof.) So far it's a very solid all around, it's a shame they're not all this non-intrusive, stable, yet configurable while being new-user friendly. I followed the forums from the main site, I received a billing fraud email actually a day after my new purchase(?!) and decided to come dig around on the forums for more information, which I didn't find. Woops. Win7 x64 Sp1 ESET Smart Security 7.0.302.26 To be honest, I've no "interesting" facts to share. I'm a generally boring person.
  9. Call me silly, but something like Lastpass built into ESET with the master key tied to a USB-dongle would be neat.
  10. The only things I've saw run commands like this were script kiddie style trojan droppers.
