  1. Here's the download link for ESS v10: https://www.eset.com/us/home/smart-security/download/ On the right side under "Download Options" click "Advance Download" to get an offline installer
  2. It should be fine else Eset v9.x wouldn't offer to do the install. However, between major version changes I like to do a clean install. It's a personal choice unless directed otherwise. For me, I have the opportunity to start with fresh rules and settings.
  3. 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.
  4. I just completed my update to EIS with v10.1.204 and I find the system tray icon right click menu to be the same as v10.0.390. Ooops My bad I don't have it either....
  5. I would suggest that you follow Marcos suggestion and submit the requested files to him in a PM
  6. Actually you can view a sorted list but not permanently sort it.
  7. I agree about a second, even a third, opinion but I'm not sure that Malwarebytes is the one to use. I've been using Hitman Pro on demand in lieu of Malwarebytes. for a second opinion scan. It's easy on system resouces and free to scan but a license is required for it to clean what it finds. I use Super Anti-Spyware on demand as well. For the paronid days I have several other titles to do on demand scans Aside from an occasional warning from EIS regarding a suspicious/blocked website, I'm happy to say that nothing has been found, ever. I attribute that to the fine Eset products I've used over the years. Of course an on demand scan is way different then running Malwarebytes Premium along side EIS. This I find to be rather cumbersome and question the need. .
  8. I'd like to know if there is any real advantage to having Malwarebytes installed along side EIS. Most all of the my searches on the subject refer to Malwarebytes in it's previous form and to Eset v9.x or earlier. I have not reinstalled MBAM nor do I want to unless there is clearly an increase in the protection to my excellent running Win7 Pro x64 system.
  9. I have been using Eset for quite a number of years in Interactive mode and have never had the issue you describe. My apologies, my response was to assist with a rapid response to mitigate damages caused by an operator error.
  10. The purpose of "interactive mode" is to allow "you" to decide about connections. If you feel that you have accidentally allowed any incoming or outgoing connections the easiest and fastest solution would be to edit the rule and either block, disable or delete the rule you created. If you want to stop the connection immediately right click on the Eset Icon in the system tray and select "Block all Network Traffic" until you get things sorted out remembering to once again allow network traffic once you have finished. Turning off the ability to create a rule pretty much negates the purpose of interactive mode.
  11. itman, Thanks for the link. Interesting read and a interesting site.
  12. I am not a Hybrid OS user. Simply Windows 7 Pro and Premium both x64, separate systems of course. I'm not having any issues with EIS on either system. Based on my own personal use I must disagree. While I will admit that there is a bit of an up hill learning curve if you are using anything but "Automatic" mode. I use Interactive mode on the Pro machine and Automatic on the Premium. I used both ESS and ESSP without issues as well. However both provided options that were either duplicates to programs already installed or simply not necessary for my use @cyberhash: I agree regarding "lack of experience and knowledge." However that's why Eset provides the Automatic mode. I consider the running of two AV's or duplicate real time protections a self induced issue. While I have several second opinion titles installed they are on demand only. It is unfortunately the common thought that more is better when it comes to protection when in fact it isn't.
  13. .I have EIS v10.0.390.0 On my Windows 7 x64 Pro system and a lifetime licensed user of MBAM I tried several v3 releases but because of the problems, which were many, I have removed it. I found it to be to much of a hassle for the reward of using it. I'll wait till they get the kinks out to see if it works. If it does, great. This is not to say that you may install it and be on your way. At the very least I would strongly recommend that you make an image of your drive prior to installing v3
  14. Eset has Internet Security for those that do not need the latest additions for whatever reason. Mine is that I already have those items covered with other licensed software. I prefer EIS over my two system licensed ESS which I renewed for two years last July. I could have used ESS if I wanted to on both machines but both are desk tops so anti theft was not really needed. My other system ran Eset v8 until the final EIS v10 was released. It's my wife's computer and she does not have any patience for learning the inner workings of the computer. The simpler the better as far as she is concerned. (Thank you Eset for Automatic Mode.) By the way she was not happy about the reminder either. As for me I like to tinker with the computer and have a curiosity about what's making it work, I use interactive mode . The point being I used v8 till it was my choice to update and to which version. It didn't cost me anything when I made the decision to do so. In fact from what I understand Eset has offered a rather favorable path to upgrade to ESSP. I also had the choice to use any mode I wanted learning, automatic, interactive or policy. As to clicking the button and send more money. I doubt seriously that it would cost you anything to update your licensed v8.x to a comparable v10.x. I like having choices and I believe Eset 's offerings provide those choices very well.
