    itman received kudos from peteyt in False positives?   
    Tip: When it comes to freeware, always opt for the "portable" version. As such, no software installation is performed.
    If the freeware does not offer a "portable" version in the form of a zipped download, consider that "a big red flag" that something is suspicious about the software.
    Note that LightShot is not offered in a portable version. Now the following I find hilarious. There is a web site that supposedly offers a portable version of LightShot here: https://karanpc.com/lightshot-free-download/ . When you select the DirectLink download, you are greeted with the below screenshot. If you proceed further, you are indeed a fool.

    My own opinion is your posting is inappropriate for this forum. You should be soliciting Eset user comments on your web site.
    Also security web sites such as wilderssecurity.com and malwaretips.com have sections for inquiries like this.

    Purchase a new license from the Eset web site or an authorized Eset retailer. Places like Amazon, eBay, etc.. are not authorized Eset retailers. If you have made customized changes within the Eset GUI, export those. Uninstall your existing Eset version. Reboot if not specifically requested to do so after uninstall. Install the Eset version you just purchased and activate it with the provided license key. If Eset previous settings were exported, import those into the newly installed Eset verion.
    Neither MBAM or SuperAntiSpyware are needed. If MBAM is installed, its real-time protection should be disabled since it can conflict with Eset's like real-time protection.

    What I will note is that it is virtually impossible via web search to find an authorized Eset reseller. A search for U.S sellers will point you to Eset U.S. web site in San Diego, CA.
    I have always made it a point to purchase sealed box versions of whatever Eset product I was purchasing from whatever source in the U.S., and never had a licensing issue.

    itman received kudos from n0zkl3r in EIS firewall question   
    For some odd and unknown reason, the Eset firewall will often throw an alert about an insecure firewall rule in reference to the built-in equi rule. It usually occurs after an in-place Eset upgrade to a new version. You possibly answered one of those alerts as a block action which resulted in the rule being disabled.
    What appears to be triggering this activity is Eset's Application Modification detection which is only applicable if the firewall is set to Interactive mode. Bottom line - this activity appears to be a long running bug in Eset firewall processing.

    Save yourself some time and stop looking. There is no option in the Eset GUI for 12.2.30 in regards to enabling AML. That won't exist until ver. 13.
    The scenario here is the same prior to when advanced behavior blocking was implemented. That is the feature in the form of the module being present is fully functional as far as I am aware of.

    itman gave kudos to BaldNerd in Switching on/off VPN causes lengthy ESET checks   
    Do you have any network shares mounted to your computer as a drive letter which are accessed through the VPN? If yes, you might consider turning off scanning of Network Drives in the Real-Time Protection settings. This feature is on by default, and in many scenarios can be helpful, but over a VPN it'd be devilishly slow and could account for the strange scanner behavior.

    itman received kudos from elquenunca in EIS - I got the update 12.2.30.0   
    Nothing strange about it. The Eset off-line installer web site is always updated somewhat after the release hits the Eset update servers. Also the situation is identical to the current status, the ver. update is offered prior to an official announcement in the forum. More so currently in that it appears all the Eset support personnel at some conference this week.

    No because virtually all third party firewalls are part of integrated AV security suites these days. The only full-featured stand-alone firewall actively supported is Comodo's. The rest are old Win 7 versions with kludges applied to get them to function on later OS versions.

    itman received kudos from Rose in import and Export XML in ESET 8   
    Elaborating, Eset switched the GUI to the Win Metro interface on vers. 9+. As such, all ver. 8 custom rules and the like will have to be re-entered from scratch. This does bring back painful memories ..........................

    itman received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in ESET and piracy   
    I believe that this article sums up nicely why pirated software should not be used: https://www.maketecheasier.com/dangers-of-using-pirated-software/ .
    Also some security software does scan for pirated software. MalwareBytes is one of them. Also a number of the web sites that assist in free malware removal will refuse to provide help if they detect cracked software on a device.

    itman received kudos from Rami in Mouse Clicker EXE undetected   
    Here's an analysis of what appears to be a later version: https://any.run/report/c77cf8ebd52d044362c7f5d1a8e3fc444488371985a8c0f2902420b93bc44001/2bdc9ed2-5ebe-42a9-beb4-f35fa778bd37#registry
    In this case, the determination was suspicious.

    The alerts still show in ver. 12.2.29. The only difference from prior Eset versions is they are now full screen alerts.
    Using the wicar.org coin miner test, Eset will first throw a PUA alert. When one selects "Disconnect," the below screen shot alert is displayed:

    I was going to post this might be a way to fix the issue. However, you would have to import settings from a prior export where the Eset GUI was properly configured. And of course, you will lose any GUI changes such as new rules created and the like that occurred subsequent to when the export was performed.

    I am using 12.2.29. But there should be no change in regards to that section from 12.2.23.
    Also your screen shot shows "Email notifications." In that slot should be "Notifications." So it appears to me there is something not right with your Eset GUI setup. Click on Email notifications and see if that brings up the screen @Marcos posted.

    itman received kudos from heyyahblah in 12.2.29.0 bug...   
    Personally, I believe something else is involved in these instances when Win 10 displays this Windows event notification.
    The way it is supposed to work is at boot time, the following two events are logged in the Security Center event log:
    The Windows Security Center Service was unable to load instances of FirewallProduct from datastore.
    The Windows Security Center Service was unable to load instances of AntiVirusProduct from datastore.
    Assumed is Eset is the cause of the above event log activity. However the Security Center is still in the process of initializing itself. As such, the Windows event notification should not appear. While this initialization activity is ongoing, Eset briefly allows Windows Defender to start and then terminates it. Security Center initialization completes with the result being Eset is registered as both the firewall and anti-virus provider.
