  1. How much time do you spend looking at Eset after you set it up? For me I see it occasionally but not that often to get bored. Actually just the opposite. I know the interface and new colors would just make doing what I need to do take longer until I adjust to it. Which means a longer time before I can get back to using my computer. Besides I would much rather have Eset spend it's time and effort under the hood then on a new paint job. But that's just me.
  2. Just checked and I'm not seeing a problem.. I'm on regular updates. Installed components: Detection Engine: 18132 (20180929) Rapid Response module: 12919 (20180929) Update module: 1014 (20180123) Antivirus and antispyware scanner module: 1542.1 (20180821) Advanced heuristics module: 1189 (20180806) Archive support module: 1277 (20180727) Cleaner module: 1166 (20180911) Anti-Stealth support module: 1141 (20180917) Firewall module: 1380 (20180813) ESET SysInspector module: 1273 (20180523) Translation support module: 1706 (20180822) HIPS support module: 1328 (20180917) Internet protection module: 1334 (20180522) Web content filter module: 1058 (20170406) Advanced antispam module: 7774 (20180919) Database module: 1103 (20180629) Configuration module (33): 1706.2 (20180925) LiveGrid communication module: 1047 (20180717) Specialized cleaner module: 1012 (20160405) Banking & payment protection module: 1138 (20180921) Rootkit detection and cleaning module: 1019 (20170825) Network protection module: 1676 (20180710) Router vulnerability scanner module: 1052 (20180816) Script scanner module: 1043 (20180820) Connected Home Network module: 1021 (20180907) Cryptographic protocol support module: 1028 (20180626)
  3. I apologize. I was not clear on exactly what was restarting egui.exe or ekrn.exe or both. That's pretty much describes my finding, as I previously stated, when I click the Start Menu entry for Eset, including the Icon closing and reopening. If I had to guess I'd say it's just replacing one instance with a new one. I must admit that I have never used the Start Menu entry for Eset in all the years I've been using it. I use the System Tray Icon to open the GUI. Having said that I don't see any issue caused by the Start Menu except it closes the existing GUI instance and opens a new one. Are you having issues as a result of the action described?
  4. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "EIS being restarted." Clicking the Eset entry in the start menu has the same effect as left clicking the icon in the system tray and the same effect as right clicking the Icon in the System Tray and left clicking "Home" on the Icon Menu, the GUI opens. I have monitored the exercise in Sysinternals Process Explorer and find that by clicking the start menu entry a second egui.exe process starts and then immediately closes if that's any help. However I do not see it having any effect on my system other then described. I have Windows 7 Professional on this system and Windows 7 Home Premium on the other, both SP1.
  5. I'm running EIS v11.2.49.0 on two Win 7 systems without issue since it's release. Did you install over the previous version or a clean install?
  6. The easiest way to determine when Eset updates and when it tries , at least for me, is shown below. It's found by clicking "update" from the home screen Updates can also be checked in the log files under "Events" Do you by any chance run full screen programs? I ask because I don't think Eset will notify you on full screen. If you've already been through all this please ignore. Just a guess on my part.
  7. I'm just guessing, it's probably because the public beta has not been released.
  8. Just in case Eset should consider this. I request that it be add it to a Premium type version and leave the Eset Internet Security version in it's present light weight state. It's hard to beat the protection and ease of use at under, right now, 55 MB of RAM and 0% CPU. That way if people want the additional tools they can support it by purchasing the "Super Premium" version at an additional cost. I have no interest in more bells and whistles. All I want Eset to do is protect my systems and it does that exceptionally well right now.
  9. I wouldn't have thought so as ESET ormally advise a clean install once the final release comes out. It could have changed though. It may work but I have found that the best practice is to do a clean install of the final release. Some changes between the last beta and final may cause some issues. I have every intention of doing that when the time comes. I'm not online all the time and I didn't want a surprise of non working protection system when I boot up. Eset will more then likely have a final release out by the expiration date or extend the expiration date as needed.
  10. It may have been a good idea to have a final release available before warning users that their protection was going to end and provide a link to v9 which is not Eset Internet Security. Just an opinion. On Edit: I entered my license key for v9.x and Eset registered it. No more warning.
  11. I have no doubt it will work until then. Seems that Eset got a bit ahead of itself by having the warning show up with a link back to a page containing v9 and nothing about "Eset Internet Security" at all let alone v10x.
  12. Yeah it is but as far as I know a final out of beta has not been released. There is the possibility that I am missing some news here.
  13. I received a warning from my install of Eset that the beta period is ending in 13 days and the protection of my system will end. I renewed last July but I have been beta testing since prior to the renewal. Should I enter the license information? If not, what should I do? Thanks.
  14. Eset Internet Security updated to v10.0.171.0 this morning. No issues or problems so far.
  15. Why would you want Eset to advise you of a third party program update? The third party program should be doing that. If it isn't then you should be addressing the author of that specific software about the issue. Personally I don't allow any programs, with the exception of Eset SS, to automatically update or even check for updates. It's the first thing I turn off on any new program install. The second thing I do is create a rule for that program to ask for permission to connect to the Internet for any reason. If I want to know if there is an update that may be necessary for security or a new feature I may want I check the website of the author. I really don't see a need for Eset to be combing the web to find updates to third party software. If Eset considers this idea please include an off switch to disable it. But hey, that's just me.
