    peteyt received kudos from Peter Randziak in anti virus best software   
    I've tried many AVs and kept moving in the past unhappy with them but once I switched to eset I've never looked back. Doesn't hog the system, good detection and good support

    peteyt received kudos from lowlanda in Gamer Mode: Why there's no shortcut/hotkey way to activate it?   
    Yeah, I know they have seen it so don't really want to post on here, but being able to change what you see when you right click the eset icon would be handy. E.G. You could add gamer mode, firewall troubleshooter etc.

    I think you should be fine but if your unsure you could try it.

    That is exactly running the troubleshooter wizard. Sometimes I've seen stuff blocked but what Marcos is saying is if you've had no issues its best not to go in there and unblock anything. That area is designed so if you find your having problems with something not working you can go in there and see if anything if maybe being blocked and unblock it.
    You should be fine but it's hard to know exactly why something is being  blocked. 
    I did find at one point when using the public network setting in Eset a lot of stuff was blocked in the network troubleshooter that wasn't when switched to home but some do recommend using public. The link below explains how to check and change this setting

    As for the browser control part unsure about this. If it happens again see if you can get a screenshot of the actual message

    You really have to ask Microsoft "the rhyme an reasoning" behind this. My best guess is to make it difficult for malware to drop a bogus Store app there.

    peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in ESET Internet Security uses almost 1GB of RAM. What's going on?   
    Also does version 13 have the same issues?

    Eset should be fine without any other security program. Some people may use other AVs as a second opinion scanner but it is important that these don't have real time protection features or if they do they are disabled as running more than one real time AV can cause a lot of compatibility issues

    peteyt received kudos from mallard65 in Is ESET antivirus a good choice?   
    Just a heads up to let you know the user appears to be a spam bot. I've reported them as well. Seems to be the same as usual, user posts something  to then later on edit the posts to add links probably hoping no mods will look back it at.
    Just wondering if there would be a way to have it so new users can't post links or would this cause problems for genuine users?

    Gaming mode could be easier to activate, some time on the past it was present on the context menu on system tray icon. I would really like to have it back there, at lest a option to do it faster. Also, could implement a way of customizing the context menu with what you actually use.
     Also, could implement a black/dark theme to the UI. 
     I've been using it for so long, I actually love the Smart Security Premium, but, this little things, sometimes are really boring to set up every single time you want to play a game.
    -I thought, there could be a "White List" where you put the programs you'd like, and then Eset's SSP auto enter "Gaming Mode" when it detects the process running.

    Eset doesn't have a way for users to directly test programs in a way for example like Sandboxie does. However Eset does use sandbox technologies. This link talks briefly about the technologies used by Eset https://www.eset.com/uk/about/technology/
     
    As mentioned by Azure Phoenix Eset does use machine learning. Like he said they have done articles about the issues of ML and AI - Right now it seems to be a buzzword and often spoken about as something new yet it's not. I'm sure a group of people released a new ML/AI product that just used buzzwords and was fake and everyone jumped on the bandwagon - it was done to show how easily it is to hype something up as something it isn't with a few words

    Description: More information in system cleaner
    Detail: I have mentioned this previously. System cleaner is the new tool in version 11 that alerts you to system settings that have been changed from default the idea being that they could have been changed by malware.
    The issue is they give no information on the actual setting just the type of setting. I tested this feature by clicking to change settings hoping I would be shown the changes and able to make a decision.
    What would make more sense is having a way to see the actual changes and a way to ignore certain changes that the user wants to keep. Many people change things themselves e.g Windows tweakers and this feature could cause issues if they change things without realising. This could always be a more advanced option disabled by default.
    If this cannot happen at least have a lot for this feature so that advanced users can see the changes made. If eset is changing a Windows option it shouldn't be too hard to log the change somewhere. Also an undo feature might be handy as when I tried it out hoping i would be given options eset just changed them and with no lot I have no idea what got changed
