  1. I'm not having any issues. I'm wondering why it is connecting to the spotify domain. Is this caused by a Firefox add-on? That said I had to post this from Edge as Firefox would not let me post to this site.
  2. I don't think going back to regular updates will take you back to v13 if that's what you were expecting. It likely just re-downloaded the modules from the regular updates channel. I guess time will tell if this was a one off or a major issue.
  3. I don't use those features. Probably why I didn't notice. Thanks for the info. Who knows, maybe it will evolve into something I do use.
  4. I installed v14 on my desktop last night to test it out. No issues so far. There actually does not seem to be anything noticeably different about it. I'm not complaining, but it would be nice if there was a more visual indicator of what version is currently installed without having to dig for it.
  5. I don't understand why this is even a conversation. The Kaspersky UI has changed very little since 2012 and I would take the ESET UI over it any day. That said it wouldn't hurt my feeling if they added a little more color to it but it is perfectly functional as is. I remember when all vendors used to replace the UI every year and it took another half year to work out the bugs.
  6. I'm not sure where to go with this at the moment. While I was waiting for a response I did some other testing. I ran an internet speed test. It wouldn't even run on Firefox and on Chrome I got about 400 Mbps down and 40 Mbps up. If I disabled protocol scanning I got 845 Mbps down and 785 Mbps up (gigabit fiber) on any browser. I uninstalled EIS to do some testing. The file transfer it still slow despite the fact that it is using Windows Defender now, even if I disable it. When I had EIS last week but disabled it I was getting over 100 Mbps transfer rates. The file server the file is being copied from is just a NAS and it reliably copies at 100+ Mbps to other PCs. I guess I'll do some more tests and if I can figure out anything useful I will post back.
  7. Gonna have to wait until next week. I'm off for the weekend and this is a work server.
  8. Yes, the issue disappears entirely if I disable real-time protection. This exact file is one I copied (it's NVIDIA, the link should be clean). https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/456.38/456.38-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql.exe
  9. As I copied a graphics driver from a file server on the local network to my laptop it got my attention that I was able to copy to the file server at 100 Mbps from my desktop (Windows Defender) but when I copied it from the server to my laptop (EIS It copied at 5 Mbps. When I disable protection on EIS it also then copied at 100 Mbps. Why the 95% loss of transfer rate? This happens both on the wireless and the gigabit wired connections. Windows 10, 64 bit, new laptop.
  10. I don't know if it makes a difference but out of curiosity, what kind of encryption are you using with your IMAP connection? None, SSL, TLS, Auto? I haven't seen it mentioned yet. Might be worth exploring. I have mine set to auto and I have no issues.
  11. I don't seem to be having the issue with v12 so far. I did have it a lot with v10. In any case, I don't want to seem like I'm badmouthing the product. Just suggesting why tests may have ranked it as they did. It's far better than waiting for Windows Defender to do what it does.
  12. It depends on what part of it you are testing. In general usage the performance if pretty good. There are situations where it could be faster, and maybe these tests weigh those things too heavily. Often when I open a folder if there are a lot of files the PC is unresponsive for a few seconds. I am assuming it is scanning the files. But I'm into my second day of testing v12. So far I haven't noticed it. I liked it enough to buy a license. It looks like a lot of people are complaining about the lack of new features. I'm good with that if the time is spent making the fastest, most stable product possible instead of following trends for the sake of doing so.
  13. You can download addons as a file, but it is easiest to do it from another browser. Then you can try to drop it into Firefox.
