Description: Add autorun protection - default block/delete of any autorun.inf files Detail: AVIRA program automatically blocks any autorun.inf file and this is very successful of preventing malware from removable media. I favor also Autorun Eater which can block and delete autorun.inf files which spread malware. If you create an option for ESET to automatically block and/or delete any autorun.inf file, this would help against malware from removable media. Do not worry about false positives - you can create an option with a pop-up to ask the user, you can also make this function non-default, you can make it user dependant (like yellow PUP screen)
Description: Dump firewall in ESET Smart Security and ESET Endpoint Security - replace with Windows Firewall Control and integration Detail: Microsoft ends support of outdated Windows XP. Windows Firewall in Windows Vista SP1, 7 and 8 is based on WFP. Windows Firewall is fairly easy and simple. Microsoft allows way to integrate 3rd parties with it. I also believe that this integration would be better of program side and would cause less issues than 3rd party own drivers and architecture. Instead of own firewall, rely on Windows Firewall and enhance it with something like Windows Firewall Control.
Since the new forum came live and since now we have a lot better differentiation of products and topic (than the previous forum), one can notice than this subforum Malware Finding and Cleaning is quite empty. Actually, if you think, you will notice than even Wilderssecurity was not that full of malware complaints (compared to previous time or some other vendors' forums). Does this mean that ESET products are really that good and they do their job perfectly, and do not need any manual additional assistance. Good job ESET ! When you do your job the right way you should be praised
