  1. "When we see men of worth, we should think of equaling them; when we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves."... Confucius Needless to say, I am reflecting inwards. Best regards, Tom
  2. Why am I hesitant to accept your "apology" when all one has to do is look at your post history? ************************ I see 1 person consistently complaining...others may be asking but they are also new...they haven't been around since 2013. If it's that bad, why are you still here? Since 2013 a 3 year license would have expired once by now. But you are still here. ************************ Labeled as a troll? Everyone can just look it up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_troll *********************** A child? None of us are that stupid. ******************************** novice, unlike you, I take no pleasure in having these exchanges. As a matter of fact, they cause me quite a bit of pain. There is no joy in TomFaceville in writing this. As TomasP posted, you (for the moment) are not being censored. Knowing that, I will not partake in the Forum as I once did. My rubber boots are only so high. So unless someone else reins you in, I guess you have free range. TTFN Tom P.S... Happy ITLAPD to everyone! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Talk_Like_a_Pirate_Day
  3. That's great....Folks, like you, need to chase the ideal of making things better for all. If you have the knowledge, please share it! Best regards Hands and take care! Tom P.S...By the way, I have referred this entire thread to the ESET Mods as it may be a violation of the Forum rules, specifically #15 https://forum.eset.com/topic/76-rules-of-the-eset-security-forum/ It's their call....not mine. I'm just a User.
  4. Have you considered contacting the ESET folks directly via their official channels? see https://www.eset.com/us/about/contact/ And if I were ESET, I am not sure how I would rate the creditability of other videos that you "obtained from other sources". All one has to do is go to the Youtube website to question the validity of ANY videos. That being said, I am sure if you have useful suggestions for ESET contact them directly or go to https://forum.eset.com/topic/51-future-changes-to-eset-internet-security-and-eset-smart-security-premium/ and post your suggestions. In the meanwhile, please don't feed the trolls. It's just a suggestion.
  5. novice is just a troll. Keep that in mind. Knowing that, value it's input accordingly.
  6. I run EIS on a Win 7 X64 machine. The only other A/V programs I have are on demand EEK and HitmanPro. I also run regular in-depth scan. In the past month or so, my scan times have increased from about 2.25 hours to over 3 hours. I have a current scan still running now passing 6.5 hours. This (the over 4 hour threshold seems to happen every few days). What gives? The scan count has not significantly changed (always about 2.2M). Could someone (a Mod preferable) please assist? I have not opened a ticket as of yet. Best regards, Tom
  7. One place to start are the WeLiveSecurity and ESET Technologies tabs at the top of the Forum pages.

    Introduce yourself

    Hello Richard and welcome to the Forum. We are glad you are here. I don't know what Trance music is , but if you enjoy it, more power to you. This Forum is a nice place to visit and learn things. My goal is to learn something new every day. ESET is a top notch A/V offering. I hope you enjoy your visits. Best regards.

    Firewall cannot prevent ...

    Thank you Marcos. I was wondering when NOD32 grew a firewall.
  10. Doesn't ALT + F4 also close pop up windows? And of course, do not click anywhere on the pop up window.
  11. You're probably OK. But as nothing in this world is 100% (including all A/V programs), you could always do a 2nd opinion scan. HitmanPro does offer a 30 day free trial (don't get the HitmanPro.Alert as it conflicts with ESET in my experience) or you could always try Emsisoft Emergency Kit (again another freebie).
  12. It works for me. Even though I have noticed of late (the past 30 days or so), the scan times increasing. It went from about 2.25 hours to about 3 (or so) hours for an in-depth scan. But I'll save that for another thread or trouble ticket.
  13. Looking at my scan logs, the "Initial scan" after installation looks to be equivalent to a "smart scan" as far as the items scanned count. For my PC that is about 240,000 (or so) "items". I have full "in-depth" scans (no smart optimization enabled) scheduled which yield a scan count of about 2.2M "items". So it appears the safest way to go is with a regular "in-depth" full scan that is regularly scheduled. Especially if you are doing "testing".
  14. Welcome to "The Forum" Mike...glad you are here. Might I ask what OS and ESET product you are using? I use EIS and Win 7x64 and I have/had the same situation (for quite sometime now)...takes about 1.5-2 minutes for Win Security Center to fully realize ESET is on board and functioning. What I have done is to adjust my Network settings to NOT automatically connect. After I see everything is registered properly (via Action Center>Security) , I then manually connect. Not a big deal for me. This also allows me to be disconnected (from the Net) when I choose to. Is that the way it should be? I'm not sure, but (again) it's not a big deal for me. Best regards.
