  1. Try collecting logs and share here. Then uninstall ESET. 150 PB in a week? This is really hurting your HDD. On the forum I see another user also having similar high ram usage issue. Wait for ESET to find out the root of the problem, fix it and then install ESET again.
  2. I think he wouldn't want to change the number of maximum connection as changing this in a way makes the use of IDM obsolete.
  3. Try collecting logs and share here. It may help ESET troubleshoot the issue even though it may have been fixed on your PC.
  4. Off topic maybe, please consider ditching utorrent for something like qBittorrent. utorrent installer usually comes bundled with pup and has other risks also and as you can see it's detected by ESET too.
  5. So what does this new registry scanner look for? Potential malicious changes made by malwares like Malwarebytes or less effective than that? Will this also be integrated into ESET's removal engine? As of now, ESET's real time protection don't look for registry modifications made by malwares at the time of removal.
  6. Try blocking all inbound connection in ESET firewall by creating a rule. Does that help?
  7. ESET is unlikely to be the villain here. If you want to be sure then you should check the logs like this. Also you may check other logs like detections and HIPS.
  8. Maybe he should scan his system by Norton Power Eraser and Malwarebytes. These are very good at finding leftovers and potentially malicious registry modifications. Scan with this: https://support.norton.com/sp/static/external/tools/npe.html https://www.malwarebytes.com/ Make sure to disable the trial Pro version of Malwarebytes. Only use it as a scanner.
  9. I used it before. It's also available on Linux. If he downloaded from the original source then it's safe. He got the malicious script from cracked Adobe installer. Right, I also think there maybe something in the Startup directory.
  10. Scroll down and post more pictures here. Your startup folder is not fully visible here. Also, beore sharing enable from Options > Scan Option > Check VirusTotal.com.
  11. I think FDM is not the likely source of it. It's a malware/adware free trusted app used by many people.
  12. Sorry, missed that. Nod32 doesn't have this problem btw. Maybe you guys should try to reproduce this issue on your end with ESET IS. I can confirm Nod32 version doesn't have any issue with GTA V Online mode. I also had every ML related option set to aggressive so those are unlikely to cause any trouble. So surely something with Network protection component. If you want to keep using ESET then you may use ESET Nod32 for the time being.
  13. A vast amount of new players are playing GTA V online now because it was given away for free 2 weeks ago on Epic Games Store. So, if the issue is related to ESET's protocol filtering then it must be fixed ASAP.
  14. Ok Live installer it is. Just a synonym but the meaning should be the same. The live installer can still determine the OS and install the full product from online and then install it. Maybe it would be even possible to implement something like multi-threaded download so that the download speed should be fast unlike the in product download speed which is terribly slow for me which is also I mentioned above. Is 85 mb would be the size of the installer for the whole package? I see that ESET currently downloads around 150 mb during the first update. So if the compressed version in an offline installer is only 85 mb then I think that's not big at all. That's probably the smallest I've seen. Even with my not so good internet it would only take over a minute to download that. Even a 150 mb installer shouldn't be considered huge and many other AVs have a lot larger ones. Also like you said, the live installer's job is to download the product without worrying about OS versions, etc so most people are likely to download the live installer anyway so a 85 mb or even a bit larger optional offline installer is fine and seems more appropriate than the current one.
  15. I'm stating two issues here in one topic. First, ESET has two types of installers, one is an online installer and the other is offline. But both are totally misleading. The offline installer is merely a 53 mb file which only installs the product but the all the modules data is downloaded after installing. Then the online installer which should do what the name suggests but it doesn't. All it does is downloads that 53 mb installer and install and of course downloads all the modules data after installing. Why even say it an online installer while it's definitely not! Highly misleading. Literally every AV I ever tried, all of their online installer download the whole product including modules and signatures, etc. ESET is the only exceptional one. Same goes for which is supposed to be ESET's offline installer. Almost all AV who still provides an offline installer installs the full product and only download the required new updates after installing unlike ESET. I don't understand! If you want to give users the option for an offline installer then that should contain every modules, updates till the day of creation and for the online installer it must download everything first then install the product. The second issue is, ESET update downloading speed right after installing is always very slow for me. Most of the time it only use 10-20% of my bandwidth even when there is no other internet activity. I started using ESET when version 12 came out and so far it has always been this way. My internet is already pretty slow so only using 10-20% bandwidth makes the process extremely annoying. Update download speed is always slow I guess but since the daily signature updates are only a few kilobytes, those are not noticeable but the first update is. Why does this happen? Why can't ESET make use of the rest of the free internet bandwidth?
  16. Description: Logging of dropped packets/blocked connections in Interactive Firewall mode Detail: When I deny access to something in Interactive firewall mode there's no way to later check what site that particular app tried to connect. It would be very useful if all the dropped packets can be log so that one can later check everything and do the research if required. This logging shouldn't be enabled by default but there should be an option to enable that when the user activate Interactive mode from advanced settings. Discussion moved to https://forum.eset.com/topic/23153-logging-of-dropped-packetsblocked-connections-in-interactive-firewall-mode/
  17. Description: A Manage application section like Kaspersky or an Application network rules section like Kaspersky or maybe both. Details: Currently there is no way to know which programs I ran on my PC that was trusted by Eset or not. By having an Application manager it would make really easy give a detailed representation. Eset already kind of has this but that's for running processes only but not for all the products and also this window just shows information but I can't interact with it like it's possible in Kaspersky. And for Firewall, it's possible to add rules for specific programs of course but it would be better if there was list of all applications to show what is set to allowed by Eset and what not. This should be interactive too so if a user want to deny let's say "Cleaner" internet connection then the he/she would select Ccleaner from the list and deny it internet access instead of the current situation where user need to manually browser the program to block it in Firewall. The current implementation should always be there of course but my proposed interface would make everything much easier. Also a program can have multiple files that access to the internet. From this list it would be much easier to find that out. So, overall user experience would improve a lot. To have a closer look you may try installing Kaspersky to understand how this two mode works on their product. I don't want Eset to have the exact same to same that Kaspersky has but the basic idea should be the same. I love Eset because it's great product and super lite. But I want Eset to have these features. I'm sure it's not just me but everybody would appreciate it and it will make the product even better. Examples:
