  1. @Marcos Why do you want EIS to have an inconsistent user interface? A user without administrator rights can edit a scheduled scan if he knows the administrator password, but when such a scheduled scan is running, then that same user can't interrupt it. That is very inconsistent. It doesn't make sense. Nowadays most administrators use an unpriviledged account for normal work and make use of UAC to do things that require administrator rights. Please support that, ESET.
  2. Why? egui.exe has many buttons that are visible for all users, but that are only useful for those who know the administrator password. Why make an exception for stopping active scans? The behavior was certainly like that. I'm not saying the button disappeared with v12.1.31.0. That may have happened with an earlier update. I just noticed the absense with that version. In the past the button disappeared once more with an update. At that time it was reported at this forum and with a later update it reapppeared. (For some odd reason old posts seem to have disappeared from the forum.) However, there is a work-around. Normal users can stop an active scan. They can start egui.exe as administrator. However, if they close that egui.exe, then the normal one doesn't open anymore. That is a bug. Showing a useful button isn't though.
  3. Description: Button to stop active scan also visible for users without administrator rights. Detail: In the past the button to stop an active scan was also visible for users without administrator rights. When such users pressed the button, they had to enter the administrator password. In my opinion that is how it should be. Unfortunately in v12.1.31.0 the button is not visible for users without administrator rights.
  4. It is very simple. Use SetThreadExecutionState. See: link to Microsoft Windows Dev Center.
  5. Description: Prevent sleep during scan. Detail: Windows can put the computer to sleep before the scan is finished. That is very annoying. There should be an option to prevent that from happening. Oops, it's a coincidence that @zeromido asked someting similar here right above. Before I started typing, I first searched the forum for "scan prevent sleep".
  6. A cleanup option for firewall rules when using the interactive mode, that deletes all rules that are pointing to applications that no longer exist on the computer, would be very helpful indeed. (I fully agree with JoMos here above.) Especially now more and more applications move to a new folder with every update, the number of useless firewall rules grows rapidly. Deleting them manually isn't a pleasant job and keeping them might slow the firewall after some time.
