    Please provide logs collected with ESET Log Collector. It could be that you have the unresolved category blocked and DNS requests are failing for whatever reason (firewall, router, ISP).

    I have setup Patental controls on my sons’ laptops (Windows 10) but even though I allowed specific sites we cannot access anything at all in the internet.  I have tried on both MS Edge and Firefox, the browser makes no difference.  I have to disable the Parental controls to restore  internet access. It blocks everything on both the parental account and the child account. 
    Please help.

    BeanSlappers received kudos from Peter Randziak in Can't update eset since being on 20H1   
    Hey everyone:
    UPDATE:
    I stand corrected,  it was because of my ISP messing up my freaking net again.  I am sorry I though it was to do with the software.  But I have had a go at them and now they have fixed it.  So everyone, if you AV doesn't want to update and you know that nothing else was wrong with your PC or connection normally,  then get on the blower to you ISP and get them to refresh your line and see if that works.

    Updated today to the stable version of build 2004 and haven't seen any issues. Seem to be slowly rolling it out now

    You should be able to find authorized partners at https://www.eset.com/uk/partner/finder/
    If you have a valid license, you can contact the seller from whom you purchase it and extend it to 3 devices. It should be cheaper than purchasing separate licenses for each device.

    The license you provided was canceled. It was issued to a person from Afghanistan and had been used for activation on thousands of machines before it was canceled. If you have paid for it, unfortunately you have fallen a victim of fraud. To prevent this, we strongly recommend purchasing a license from an authorized seller.

    What did your local ESET support tell when you called them?
    I was unable to find any license registered with your forum registration email address. Please provide your public license ID.

    Well i have to say i'm very miffed at ESET and it's so called support option, and have been forced to post here, ESET it would be nice is legal holders could get some decent support rather than having to post in open forums,
    I have an issue with both an email address to access an account with you 3 device, and also lic manager and constant errors, i'm not oing to post SN in open forum of course any chance andyone from ESET to reach out so i can find out what is goingon with Lic Manager etc

    Thank you for all your help.  I was still having problems with the license key, so I went ahead and purchased a two year subscription for two computers.  Can I have the days on the old subscription added to my new subscription?

    According to colleagues from ESET LLC, you should receive a response within today. I assume it should be possible to merge the two license so that you have just one license key that will be valid for the existing period extended by the remaining period of the other license.

    Marcos,
    Thank you for your help.  I was told that it was not possible to merge the two licenses.

    Specifically, echo reply is only allowed from devices in the Trusted Zone; i.e. local subnet.
    Alternatively, you can manually create an outbound firewall rule to block echo reply from a specific device. Then move that rule prior to any existing default ICMP rules.

    Refer to the below screen shots. Substitute the shown Local 192.168.0.0 address for the DHCP assigned IP address for the local device you wish to block outbound echo reply activity. If you want to be notified about block activity, check mark the "Notify user" setting. Move this rule above any existing Eset default ICMP rules that exist.

    BeanSlappers gave kudos to Marcos in This guys test a few days ago with Eset   
    Even if we forget the fact that it's a synthetic test with Web access protection ruled out which is an important 1st defense layer in real world, ESET still scored 100%. However, disabling also real-time protection makes the AV product even more crippled since real-time protection affects especially HIPS as already explained. In real world that would equal to a situation when an attacker managed to log in remotely or locally with administrator rights, disabled or uninstalled the AV and then the user wondered how come the AV hadn't protected him or her.

    You can see in the test that ESET detected 100% of the samples in that SYNTHETIC (ie. not a real-world) "test" so no better result could be achieved.
    We have already commented on it as follows:
    This test is completely wrong. First of all, you skip the very first layer of defense - Web access protection which is very strong in ESET and blocks download from malicious urls which could save users in many cases from new malware even entering the system. Secondly, by disabling real-time protection you prevent HIPS from receiving events on the file system level and thus make HIPS and all HIPS dependent components ineffective, such as: Ransomware shield, Exploit Blocker, Advanced Memory Scanner, Deep Behavior Inspection, Advanced Machine Learning, etc.
    Disabling real-time protection is not just disabling the use of signatures which are, by the way, typically smart DNA signatures in case of ESET, ie. they only describe the malicious behavior to be detected. Disabling RTP prevents other modules from working effectively since they won't receive information about file system events which have nothing to do with signature detection whatsoever.
    In real world users must not and do not disable particular protection modules. If they do, they must understand they do it at their own risk and expose the machine to malware attacks and infection.

    BeanSlappers gave kudos to itman in Site being incorrectly blocked with parental control.   
    Appears to me, Eset needs to do some serious QC in regards to their tech support infrastructure. I have seen previous moderators comments that in-country tech support is supposed to escalate the issue to Eset corp. tech support if the issue can't be resolved locally. Based on forum postings where local tech support was contacted, it appears this escalation is not being performed.

    I don't think this would affect Parental Control in any way since filtering is performed by ekrn and not by a browser extension.

    BeanSlappers gave kudos to peteyt in Whats with the WIN7 o/s out of support nag   
    From what I gather it should popup for people using windows 7 because it is no longer supported by Microsoft - while eset can still protect windows 7 any security program becomes limited when an OS stops receiving patches. However there was a bug that meant if people had upgraded from windows 7 to 10, eset didn't realise and so alerted the user as it still thought they were using 7.

    BeanSlappers gave kudos to itman in Very Strange Eset Behavior   
    Yesterday I was doing some system testing that caused hundreds of Eset desktop notifications. In my haste to stop those, I inadvertently and mistakenly turned off desktop notifications. No problem. Went into Eset GUI and re-enabled it.
    Now here is where it gets very strange. Afterwards all my Eset HIPS ask rules were suddenly auto allowing the activity. Additionally, I was no longer receiving any Eset confirmation for GUI setting changes.
    A system reboot returned everything back to normal. However, this behavior was a bit disturbing.

    What do you mean by "ESET nagging you about using Windows 7"? Where do you see the nag? Could you please post a screen shot?
    Regardless of this, Windows 10 provides better protection compared to Windows 7 and is fully supported, ie. vulnerabilities found in Windows 7 after it reached EOL may not be fixed which will increase possible attack surface for malware and attackers.

    For normal use (without heavy gaming) or business use Linux is excellent , I agree.

    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.
