    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.

    Have full control over devices connected to the account, like remote updates, remote settings, remote scanning etc.

    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.

    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.

    No problems here. Does the issue persist? Are you unable to log in from another device either?

    I am interpreting this to be if DNS over HTTPS is implemented in the browser, Parental Control won't work?

    I have no problems blocking inappropriate websites with Parental Control in beta:
     
    I would recommend contacting customer care for further troubleshooting. The beta will become final some time soon. You can uninstall the beta and install the latest release version to see if it makes a difference, however, as far as I know there should be no changes in Parental Control in the beta.

    Microsoft are intent on relegating the desktop PC into a -poor child of their crappy surface tablet.  There is little or no point in promoting all this geoloating twaddle on a PC which is, for the most part, quite static in its movements.  Laptops are not that mobile really,  except for business types.
    Windows 10 is dire, intrusive, bland.  If Linux could offer me better gaming options I'd blow windows out the door and not waste a minute more on it.

    Actually, you should be receiving a PUA alert if not using Google Search. When using Google Search, no alert but no connection but access silently blocked and PUA log entry created.
    In any case, you should not be allowed access to the pcrisk web site unimpeded.

    If you are currently in Canada , you should buy from Canadian store
    Same as your credit card, you should buy from same country or you will get errors when you are trying to buy from ESET authorized stores.

    Another nice feature for network monitoring.
    Description: Ability to take actions such as block MAC/IP address etc...
    Detail: Right now the connected home monitor is pretty useless because it is like I know someone connected to my network (good or bad) but I can not do anything about it (like block his access to my computer or from my network).
    Description: AdBlock/Guard
    Detail: AdBlock is a vital feature for secure browsing and I think it is about the time ESET will add AdBlock features or even partner with AdGuard.

    I'm not sure if this is possible from technical point of view. Anyways, this topic is monitored by people responsible for making decisions about future features so it will be noted.

    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".

    Description: Prevent scheduled actions
    Detail: Prevent any scheduled actions that might interrupt a scan or any security related operation. For example, scheduled shutdowns, restarts, sleeps, log offs, hibernates, etc.
    I think this can be done using an option in settings. Maybe somebody got a better idea to do this?
