    peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in What is the difference between an original ESET license and a pirated ESET license?   
    One thing that happens on this forum is a lot of users post that their license has been flagged. This normally happens when someone or some site sells a license to more people than the license is designed for.
    What seems to happen is the seller will buy a license for 1 single user and resell it to multiple users but as the license is for one user eset's systems will automatically detect it is being used on multiple devices and block it. For this reason eset always recommends users buy directly from their website and not other sites Including the likes of Amazon and Ebay who have users selling things.
    In general a lot of software can be obtained illegally via cracks but this is very risky as cracks are a popular method for distributing malware. The problem is you don't know what they have added to the program

    peteyt received kudos from Prayer1 in YEARS Of Eset Internet Security, will I have to move on? HELP APPRECIATED!   
    As mentioned i don't use the password manager as I have a lifetime license with another one. You could always download a trial of the premium version and see if you prefer it. Same with eset mobile. I belive it can be purchased possibly through the play store but as a customer you could contact sales and maybe they'd be able to sort a deal with premium to.
    As for chrome as I mentioned last time best thing to do is download and give it a try and see if you prefer it over Firefox. Everyone has their own favourites and some people don't trust Google. At least by trying you can choose what works best for you

    Eset gives you "the most bang for your bucks" in this category.
    Interesting to see how fast someone filled the void by NSS Labs demise which used to do like analysis for $$$$$:

    peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in suggestion for all eset products   
    The only UI change I wouldn't say no to and I've brought up before, is allowing some customisation e.g. when you right click the eset icon e.g. allowing for gamer mode or other frequently used options to be there.
    While off topic I've also been wondering lately if there would be a better way to troubleshoot eset issues. Currently when eset doesn't work and people post on here a mod will often ask to try and disable a certain feature and if that doesn't work possibly ask to disable something else. I was wondering if a kind of troubleshoot wizard could help where the user could use this and the wizard would try different things e.g. disable different things, and at least find a possible feature that is causing the issue although I don't know if this would work and probably be too complicated

    peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in Cit0Day Breach   
    Just thought I'd share this. Troy Hunt via his Have I been pwned site has shared a large breach, which appears to be a collection of multiple breaches, collected together. He appears to have tested some, which appear correct, but due to the large size of the data he cannot confirm all. There's also the possibility that some are from previous known breaches, and he does note some of the websites involved no longer exist.
    It's also good to know the latest version of Eset with the version 2 password manager can notify you of breaches in regards to accounts you have saved on there. This is something I can see happening more and more.

    Hello,

    A dark mode option is in consideration for a subsequent release of the software, however, there is no specific time associated with the request. 

    Keep in mind that this type of change is not a matter of simply changing the background colors.  Color choices and design of icons and other imagery along UI components and even text layout (size, positioning, typeface choice, etc.).  All of these have to be carefully reviewed and, if needed, adjusted for compatibility as well as for any impact to the supportability of  the programs (for example, what happens when a blurry or low-res screenshot is sent in with a ticket).

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky

    Yes I agree. I have no issue with eset implanting a dark mode if they decide to. However I presume it wouldn't be as simple as it sounds. If it's something that would take a while I'd rather they used that time on the product itself rather than how it looked

    Hi @itman
    While I can't speak for the sales offers of our US office (@CB530 explained those, as he works in that office), you will be glad to know that for the past few weeks, we have actually been planning to launch a program for our most valued forum members that includes a free license!
    I am sorry it was not launched before you had this experience, but as it was said, you can choose to refund the renewal and opt to purchase a new discounted license at this time.
    You will hear from us regarding the most valued members program.

    peteyt gave kudos to Marcos in Updated programs - Keep Rules   
    We are aware of the problem with Windows applications and the changing path with each update. There is a plan to come with up a solution to this in long term. Also I can assure you that we value any constructive feedback or suggestion and it's discussed with product managers and developers.

    Turn it on. It's not related to ESET, it's smartscreen that's built into the system. It doesn't usually turn off automatically so not sure what happened there.

    peteyt received kudos from Vilket Namn in Recovery of password manager account.   
    I think normally when you create your account for the first time it'll give you a recovery key to copy down. I had to create a new account because I had lost where I'd put it

    peteyt received kudos from camelia in What I should do with the duplicates rules?   
    I belive you can delete them but don't think leaving them will cause any issues such as space etc. As you can see from the folder path each location has a slightly different version name.
    The problem with Windows Store apps is their folder location and I believe exe. name changes with each version number. For example is the folder name was app 1.0 the new folder might be app 1.5 and so on. As the location and so on change eset treats it like a new app and a new rule gets made.

    peteyt received kudos from fabioquadros_ in Your LiveGrid system needs tweaking   
    While I completely agree with your statement, nothing can be 100 percent, but does that mean we shouldn't put in things to try and stop it? By that logic couldn't we argue that why bother with protection if some kind of malware could theoretically be designed to bypass or disable an AV (yes I know my comparison is slightly different to the issue we are talking about and AVs have tech to stop these).
    I do think we will see a lot more people requesting a folder system for ransomware protection. As mentioned before I'd love to see a better system for advanced users for warning them about files with no to low reputation. I get that eset doesn't want to cause issues and confusion for average users but surely that shouldn't mean the more advanced users should go without. Just make it harder to find and enable these things and make it clear when enabling the risks.

    peteyt received kudos from LesRMed in zippyshare.com - HTML/ScrInject.B Trojaner   
    The fact is the site is running dodgy adverts. Whether or not you agree with with eset blocking these does not change that fact.
    I myself would rather eset blocked these things and then leave it up to the user to decide if they want to add it as an exception. Users wouldn't be happy if they didn't have an adblocker and got infected because eset didn't block them.

    peteyt received kudos from LesRMed in Rude and unhelpful customer support   
    In reality though most companies will not help people who have bought their products from an illegal reseller.
    Again though I do agree that the person on the chat should have explained things more rather than saying that is not your license which you could read as you stole it.
    I think maybe there should be a script for future when this happens to avoid any misunderstandings e.g. with the eset rep explaining that the license has been miss sold and the seller was a scammer. This should stop the victim feeling at fault or feeling they are being accused of something

    peteyt received kudos from ebill in Why ESET firewall rules don't work for ESET's own traffic?   
    Surely blocking eset rules will in turn block things such as updating meaning you won't have the latest signatures and bug fixes.
    I get people want to be in control of their computer and connections and privacy etc. But surely with an AV you give them access to all your files technically anyways so you should trust them. Yes I know some AVs have had issues in the past but Eset have always been very transparent and also give you clear options to disable things e.g. marketing and usage collection etc.

    peteyt gave kudos to thunderrd in Can I place all firewall rules on a single page, rather than only 200?   
    Yes, and this is the problem.  If a rule is #205 and you want to move it to be #190, you can't simply use the ^ button.  You can only move the rule to position 201 [the first rule on the second page].  It is mind-boggling that the editor does not have the capability to move it to any position in the ruleset.
    So you have to work around it by using a bunch of user shenanigans: 1)move the rule to the top of the second page[#201], 2) delete rule #200, so that #201 moves onto the first page, replacing #200, 3)move it to the position on the first page where you want it, 4)manually create and add the rule that used to be #200, now it will be #201, at the top of the second page.
    It's a mess, and I see no other way to do it.  The editor is simply not built to correctly handle rule order manipulation, especially if there are more than 200 rules.  Why not simply have a selection button at the bottom of the list that selects how many rules are to be visible on a page?  Like Google: How many results to be shown on one page? 20/50/100/200/300
    But it doesn't stop there.  It isn't even convenient to re-order rules when there are only 200 of them, either.
    The capability to order the rules in the rules editor is sorely lacking in features that the old interface had.  A glaring one is the inability to drag/drop the rules into position; this we were able to do before this inferior ruleset editor replaced the old one.  So, if a rule is say, #190 and you want it to be #60, you have to hit the little ^ button 130 times to get it there.  What dev in their right mind made that decision?
    Couple that shortcoming with the inability to move rules between pages of the list and it is a big fail.  Don't get me wrong; I have been an ESET user for more than 15 years and have complete faith in the function of the software, but to be honest, it isn't particularly user-friendly anymore.
    I complained about the lack of drag/drop and other regressions 4 YEARS AGO, in this thread: https://forum.eset.com/topic/9625-eset-9x-ui-is-a-total-disappointment-much-worse-than-before/
    And itman, you were a contributor to that thread as well.
    That was when it was version 9.x.  It's now at 13.x and NOTHING has been done.  Marcos reported it to the devs then.  Apparently it is not an important enough feature to be worked on.
