    This article should explain how to enable it. You can also set it up to automatically enable if it detects a full screen app

    FYI in regards to anyone using Win 10 Insider builds:
    https://www.onmsft.com/news/kaspersky-declines-support-windows-insider-builds-windows-10
    To the above, I add that just because Eset runs w/o issue on a Win 10 Insider build does not imply it is working properly. In other words, it is "user beware" in this regard.

    I gather amon is just a part of eset? Interesting to see how the GUI and GUIs in general have changed over the years

    This is very nice of ESET
    Also for people who are interested to give their computer power to help solve the problem you can do this using Folding@Home , https://foldingathome.org/2020/03/15/coronavirus-what-were-doing-and-how-you-can-help-in-simple-terms/
    But that will use most of the CPU and GPU if it's running on your computer , it will help scientists find a formula against the Corona.
    I hope it will be good and peaceful all over the world.

    peteyt gave kudos to Marcos in ESET to create a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus   
    ESET has been protecting users worldwide for decades already and have always provided state-of-the-art protection. While it was always our digital worlds that ESET has been protecting, now with the epidemic of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus the need to protect also users themselves became inevitable. Besides supporting various scientific and charity events, we are now creating a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, giving 300,000 EUR to support the purchase of a diagnostic system capable of analyzing 4000 samples per day.
    By purchasing ESET's products you can be sure that you also support science and charity.

    Recognizing the seriousness of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus spread, ESET has decided to engage in the fight against the epidemic in Slovakia. The ESET Foundation has therefore set up a COVID-19 Effective Diagnosis and Prevention Fund, to which ESET will contribute EUR 300,000. The amount will be increased later if necessary. The aim of the newly established fund is to provide, in the first phase, the necessary equipment for improving the quality of diagnostics and introducing comprehensive testing in Slovakia.
    Since its inception, ESET has dedicated itself to the diagnosis of computer viruses and is symbolic to support the diagnosis of biological viruses in this situation. Even at such moments, the importance of science, which can make a significant contribution to solving the situation, has been shown. ESET Foundation supports science and research and is the organizer of the ESET Science Award.
    “We have set up a fund to support the effective diagnosis and prevention of coronavirus because we believe that only a systematic scientific approach will help us manage this epidemic. At the same time, it is essential that we think ahead today and take steps to relaunch the economy. General and systematic testing of the population will help in returning the employees to the work process and thus also help the Slovak economy, ” explains Richard Marko, CEO of ESET.
    Through the Fund, ESET will support the purchase of high-performance diagnostic equipment, the development of systems for more efficient online diagnostics, or contribute to the cost of operating or collecting and transporting samples. Public and private medical diagnostic institutions and laboratories operating in Slovakia that are authorized to diagnose this type or to take and transport SARS-CoV-2 related samples may receive financial support. These institutions can contact the ESET Foundation at nadacia[at]eset.sk . The expert guarantor in the evaluation of the use of the fund's resources is the recognized Slovak chemist Robert Mistrík.
    “After the first discussions, we are considering co-financing the purchase of the Roche cobas 8800 System, or co-financing its operation. This device is able to do real-time RT-PCR tests at lower unit cost and shorter time in automatic mode. It can evaluate up to 4,000 samples in a single day. We will look for a partner to operate this device. Of course, the fund will also be open to other solutions supporting its goal, ” concludes Robert Mistrík, the fund's expert guarantor.
    More information about the Fund for the Support of Effective Diagnosis and Prevention of COVID-19 can be found at www.nadaciaeset.sk .

    peteyt received kudos from BeanSlappers in Whats with the WIN7 o/s out of support nag   
    From what I gather it should popup for people using windows 7 because it is no longer supported by Microsoft - while eset can still protect windows 7 any security program becomes limited when an OS stops receiving patches. However there was a bug that meant if people had upgraded from windows 7 to 10, eset didn't realise and so alerted the user as it still thought they were using 7.

    Ubuntu is good for starting and also for advanced , but for GUIs take a look at :
    Ubuntu KDE
    Ubuntu MATE
    Ubuntu GNOME
    LinuxMINT Cinammon looks a bit like W7 if you are interested
    For me I use MATE , It's great.
    You can also download the LTS edition , which will make your upgrades every few years(major operating system upgrade) , and also LTS is considered to be more stable , but the newer versions have newer features but I would go with LTS for sure
     
    Put it on a USB and run it as a live image , and test the linux as much as you want , when you will restart you will go back to your Windows normally , so that way you can give Linux a try , or fire it up in a virtual machine

    I have a local account. I do not use online anytihng for this win10 debacle.  I have SHUTUP switch off almost everything. I have no one drive, I have no microsoft accounts.
    microspasm have, over the years, clearly demonstrated their mistrust, disgust and lack of customer service for the very people who made them the global garbage patch they now are.
    As for a Linux recommendation, clearly, the front runner for new folk is Ubuntu.  The GUI has evolved vastly over the years, it is stable, useful and easy to get to grips with.  The standard desktop version contains all the workable software you would likely need. Installing more software is a doddle and there is a world of passionate, dedicated expert-like folk who will gladly offer any free assistance.
    There is NO activating online. There is (almost) no snooping - firefox, etc will have crash report info sent off but these things can easily be disabled. Almost everything you could want will be available as Open Source or GPL, etc so no worries about purchasing things.
    Virtualisation runs far better on the Linux platform than windows via KVM/QEMU. The only caveat that I have encountered is that cut/paste between host/guest and shared folders are a bit trickier to set up than would be the case with a windows setup. However, if you don't want a more hardware-centric virtualisation then you can still employ virtualbox which operates as well as virtualbox does anywhere.
    Software development tools do NOT require 10Gb or more of install as one gets with visual studio. By the same token, no registration is required such as microspasm force one into so they can spy on more of your activities.
    If one is a non-gaming user, Linux is ideal. If one is a business user, it could also be ideal but for the fact that the bulk of businesses use BackOffice tools - especially exchange/outlook; the latter of which has been altered so it is not so user-friendly any longer.
    I was weaned on UNIX (SYSV) and have been a ms/windows tech-type since MSDOS 3.x and windows 3. With every subsequent release, I have disliked windows less and UNIX-like more.
    The day windows is history will be a glorious day for the whole world!
    P.S. Once you feel confident enough you can even recompile your Linux kernel to streamline it to your tastes and speed-up your boot times.  Personally, I have not recompiled a kernel since using Slakware but it is fun to try and would take far less time today than the 4-7 hours it used to take using pre-pentium intel chips back in 1993.

    peteyt gave kudos to itman in Web Site Magecart Attacks - Kudos to Eset Again!   
    First a recent reference article:
    Credit Card Skimmer Found on Nine Sites, Researchers Ignored
    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/credit-card-skimmer-found-on-nine-sites-researchers-ignored/
    So I decided to test Eset on detection capability. Per the linked article, picked one of the infected sites - Bahimi swimwear shop - first infected in November, 2019, the skimmer is still there today.

    Attempted to order something here: https://bahimi.com/gbp/checkout/onepage/ .

    Eset immediately detected the card skimmer:

    peteyt gave kudos to itman in Realtek Fixes DLL Hijacking Flaw in HD Audio Driver for Windows   
    To begin, anyone who hasn't updated their Realtek audio driver in the last few months is most likely vulnerable. All audio drivers prior to version 8857 are vulnerable.
    I am posting this because:
    1. This is a kernel mode device driver vulnerability.
    2. The outfit, SafeBreach Labs, who developed the POC: https://safebreach.com/Post/Realtek-HD-Audio-Driver-Package-DLL-Preloading-and-Potential-Abuses-CVE-2019-19705 , has a penchant for later using their POC's to show how AV protections can be bypassed using these vulnerabilities.

    peteyt gave kudos to FredRaylander in Future changes to ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium   
    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.

    peteyt received kudos from Azure Phoenix in Future changes to ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium   
    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
