  1. First, we are talking about connection-specific DNS suffice versus domain DNS suffix. Connection-specific DNS suffix is assigned via the DHCP initialization processing and really should never change. Also Eset uses connection-specific DNS suffice to actually name the network connection. I would talk to Comcast tech support as to why your connection-specific DNS suffix name is changing. Might be a problem with your ISP issued router. Or, there is a router configuration option to prevent this from happening.
  2. More info on the use of APIPA in Windows and when it is invoked is given here: https://www.lifewire.com/automatic-private-internet-protocol-addressing-816437
  3. Since you state this issue is intermittent in nature, another possibility is the use of APIPA address DNS server assignment. APIPA IPv4 DNS server addresses start with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx and are used when DHCP initialization processing cannot establish a valid IPv4 DNS server connection Unfortunately Eset network processing doesn't handle this situation at all and will indeed try to great a new network connection when it occurs.
  4. If the IPv4 DNS server addresses shown in this screen shot; i.e. and, are your actual router assigned IP addresses, I question their validity. IPv4 DNS server addresses on a device almost always are within the assigned local subnet range; 192.xxx.xxx.xxxx or 10.xxx.xxx.xxx.
  5. I would suggest you open a command prompt window and enter the following: ipconfig /all The output shown will give details as to DNS server, DHCP server, and gateway IP addresses in use by Win 10. Eset Network Identification parameters should match that shown in the ipconfig output in regards to the above noted IP addresses.
  6. What usually causes this is the parameters assigned to the Eset network profile for the device are too restrictive. Refer the below screen shot. The clause to note is: What this means is if your device and local network parameters do not match all the data shown in the Network Identification section, Eset will not recognize the existing network adapter connection and attempt to create a new one. You might have to experiment with different settings in this section; notably DNS and DHCP server IP addresses.
  7. Something is not right here. When Eset established the initial network adapter profile for this device, assumed it was the trusted Home/Office profile. This would have set the the Trusted zone for example to In other words, all devices connected to the local subnet assigned by your router. How are you doing file sharing with the other devices on the network? Via recommended Win 10 folder sharing method?
  8. Here's an article that lists ports used by Steam: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8571-GLVN-8711 I don't see anything listed there that would conflict with protocol/ports used by LiveGrid.
  9. Based on what is shown here: https://support.eset.com/en/kb6209-set-up-security-tools-in-eset-smart-security-premium and here: https://support.eset.com/en/kb6266-eset-secure-data-faq , there is no way to change the password.
  10. Exactly.👍 Again, Eset created the secure all browsers mode to eliminate the complaint of the Win default browser in B&PP mode when another browser was used for daily browsing use. Personally, I believe Eset should just revert B&PP options back to the previous settings. All the new settings are just creating a lot of confusion.
  11. If you have no need for the parental control option in Eset; e.g. no children use this computer, etc., disable the option per the below screen shot. Note that this option is not enabled by default. Disabling the parental control option will eliminate the need to create any Eset web site exclusions in this regard.
  12. The answer is any web site can be compromised. This is why Eset is scanning HTTPS incoming Internet traffic.
  13. Refer to this: https://support.eset.com/en/kb6408-banking-and-payment-protection-browser-not-working . Scroll down to this section in the article:
  14. In ThreatSense parameters for Idle-Scan option, verify that the scan is set to low priority. See if this helps with the logon issues:
  15. Position your mouse pointer over "Marcos" in one of his forum replies as shown in the below screen shot. Then mouse click on "Message."
  16. I have no issues using B&PP with Firefox. What browser are you using?
  17. As far as a safe way or more specifically a tool that would work on all Win OS versions and different device hardware configurations, the answer is no, Knowledgeable security sources recommend the first thing to be done after the OS is installed is to backup the MBR. This is done not only for potential malware infection but in the instance the MBR becomes corrupted for other reasons. There are a number of third party tools that can backup and restore the MBR. What I recommend Eset explore is backing up the MBR at Eset product installation time. Eset would also provide a MBR restore u
  18. Look for shutdown events and note any that reference equi.exe.
  19. Assuming you're accessing the French language Google drive web site, you can add this domain; www.google.com/intl/fr/drive/* to Eset Web access protection -> URL Address Management -> Address list -> List of allowed addresses -> Edit -> Add. Note: doing so will prevent all Eset scanning for this domain/sub-domains. That includes not only uploads but also any downloads. This also applies to the Google certificate exclusion you added. This URL method is preferable to the Google cert. exclusion since it appears that cert. is used for multiple Google web sites. Theref
  20. Eset SSL/TLS protocol filtering uses an internal whitelist to exclude web sites from scanning. I believe it is URL/domain name based although EV certificate status might play a factor. Unfortunately, the only exclusion method other than by certificate is by IP address which is not suitable to most. Note: unless the Google certificate you excluded is specific to the Google drive web site, this exclusion would apply to any other web site using the same cert..
  21. How are you performing file uploads? Via a browser or outside of a browser?
  22. My advice is to use Process Explorer versus Win Task Manager to get a full picture of what is going on in regards to equi.exe. When the Eset GUI interface is not open, the following should be observed: Once the Eset GUI interface is opened, the following is observed: Once the Eset GUI interface is closed and approximately 10 secs or so thereafter, equi.exe will terminate itself with the result being what is shown in the first screen shot. In other words, equi.exe should never be running as a stand-alone process but always as a child process to the parent ekrn.ex
  23. Links appear to be fixed now. Or possibly, there was a redirection issue from forum servers.
  24. The invoice also has discrepancies. Order subtotal is shown in U.S. $, but tax and total amount are shown in Turkish currency amounts. The 4446 Visa card prefix is associated with Ziraat Bankasi: https://www.creditcardvalidator.org/visa/ziraat-bankasi/444677 . However the invoice shows bank name of card issuer as İşbank. Additionally, İşbank is a commercial bank; i.e. does not offer accounts to the general public.
