  1. This is common for Windscribe VPN to do this. You have to allow it if you want to keep using Windscribe. They use IKEv2 protocol by default, and it needs to temporarily modify the host file for that reason. It restores to the previous state when you disconnect. Also, this must be new for HIPS smart mode. I have never seen this before. Instead, I had to create my own rule to monitor host file modification. So I don't think this happened cause the VPN was updated recently. It's probably because ESET updated their HIPS Smart mode rule.
  2. You are right, but that didn't happen anymore when I reinstalled again a month later. The error logging issue is still common though for everybody if WMI is scanned. I also saw ESET's initial scan is scanning WMI. It shouldn't do this until something can be done to fix it.
  3. Can't something be done about this WMI error? I have been waiting for a few months for an update for ESET to fix it, but it hasn't happened yet.
  4. Nice one ESET 👍 Well said. I shared this in another forum and used this line.
  5. The forum has an option to enable dark theme? Where is it?
  6. No not this one. I mean ESET Endpoint product has full offline installer (160mb+ in size) containing all the modules till the day the installer was released.
  7. Is there anything wrong with ESET or its servers in general? In virustotal all ESET scans are resulting in "Timeout" https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/b3f6fbb4f049d0a99d882495ebc6b0086936daffa4275f1d4e36927e6e8dc8c2/detection
  8. I did, but it's downloading the initial update extremely slowly. 3 megabytes in 45 mins, so I had to uninstall again. Maybe something is wrong from my ISP's side. Everything else is running fine though. I don't know what's the problem. This is why I always wanted a full offline installer containing all modules. It would make the initial update smaller. ESET have such installer for business products but not for home.
  9. Hi, sorry I don't have ESET installed at the moment because I was having trouble connecting to internet because of it. As I said, I tried to switch to pre-release channel but the download never started even after restarting the system and triggering a manual update. Maybe @itmancan help.
  10. ESET need to get their act together with the WSC integration. I haven't seen other products who still have this problem but ESET is having issues quite regularly randomly for some users. Every few months we see there's a new WSC integration module update for ESET. Hopefully they finally fix everything.
  11. Well tonight I had a problem. Suddenly I saw WD is also running on the system along with ESET. Windows Security was showing WD as the AV as if I don't have ESET installed. Restarted the system but same. Tried to switch to pre-release channel and the updating windows was showing updating product with the usual animation but the download process never began. Restarted the system but same problem. Tried to download the ESET log application but that wasn't downloading either. No idea why! There were some internet connectivity issue due to WD vs ESET scenario maybe? So couldn't collect log and had
