  1. haha, just hoping having it running doesn't drain the battery too much
  2. It's to do with User permissions and ability to run MSI files. I do know away around it however I don't deem it very safe so wouldn't like to instruct you as someone might have a safer way of doing it. You other option is to contact customer support and they should be able to help you. If you just Google the error codes although not specifically to do with ESS you should be able to find the answer but do so at your own risk. I did notice on someone's video about it they were running Norton so it might be related to some security settings it changes. Have you run the full uninstaller to make sure that Norton is fully removed if not this link should help as well. hxxp://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN146 Sorry didn't post the fix I would use but I wouldn't want you doing something that might not work.
  3. Although I feel like I don't really need it did take them up the sale of their Mobile Security
  4. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. (I feel like braking out into song here but I'll save you all)
  5. Think I would trust ESET over most companies and also I would like to point out that it's not ESET's fault as such because it's classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program so there for its not classifying it as malware so its up to the user. It's just making the user aware that this software might cause a problem
  6. I don't know where your from however you might be better off phoning the Tech Support. I know that there is a phone number in the UK at least. However could you possibly tell us what version of NOD 32 you are using and what operating system as we might be able to help you here.
  7. I personally disable the built in filter in Outlook. Comes down to personal preference I would of thought
  8. Glad to have helped I am sure if you have any problems there will be others and myself able to help.
  9. While doing a Smart Scan and leaving my PC to do its thing I noticed that Eset has found some a threat or two (Which are PUPs so I am not to worried). However because I was away from my PC the options to clean had already disappeared. So my question is with Strict Cleaning would that stop this? Also even if Strict Cleaning deletes a file will it still end up in Quarantine so can be restored if ESET gets it wrong?
  10. @Utini I have like you used both the above suites over the years and found the same issues as you have highlighted and while it might not feel as secure having all the rule bases the only thing I do with Smart Security is switch HIPS to Smart Mode and enable Potentially Unsafe Programs. I have found the program to be very light weight and haven't really felt the need for the firewall or hips to be interactive mode to set the rules. It is also the only suite that I have used for consecutive years so it must be doing something right. There is my two pence worth, I know in some respects it doesn't answer your question but the beauty of a trial you can make the software do what you want and see how it handles.
  11. Also have you got Potentially Unsafe Applications and Potentially Unwanted Programs enabled? As the first option isn't enabled or asked about. The program might fit into those categories as it seems like its a crack.
  12. First and foremost welcome to the Eset Community and I hope you enjoy your stay. I would recommend keeping Mcaffee on your machine until you have downloaded Eset Smart Security from here: hxxp://www.eset.co.uk/Download/Software/Home after you've downloaded it then you can uninstall it and run the install of which you could just activate the trial. Although like many others here I wouldn't talk you out of using Smart Security but it gives you a chance to make sure the product is for you. (Although realistically you could uninstall Mcafee first as long as you knew you were only going to the eset website and downloading the set up, however I couldn't recommend this completely because there is the small chance of an accident). As for the Dell Protected Workspace I haven't used it myself but I know that the set up for smart security does have a compatibility conflict scanner in it so if it does conflict I am sure it will let you know or remove it for you. Maybe someone else can definitely answer that question for you. Malwarebytes is another great bit of software but I would honestly recommend saving your money and downloading it but keeping to the free version because I would just scan with Malwarebytes if you think you've downloaded something dodgy or just once a week or so just for a second opinion. As I feel Smart Security has all the layers you really need and Malwarebytes real time is just overkill however the on demand is a valuable tool. Hope that helps and good luck. I've been a happy Eset user for over a year now and it will be the only one I have consecutively renewed
  13. Ah I would of thought the maximum the software would be waiting for a restart would be a couple of hours education would be a little wasted in this case I am afraid.
  14. I wouldn't disable any features if it was me. The only other thing is I have set a PC that I can't maintain myself to automatically download component updates but to never restart due to the fact the user would panic if something came up saying that they needed to restart. My main question is that it will install the update and then take effect the next restart? Not causing an issues with protection?
