    peteyt gave kudos to itman in ESET failed to protect against ZeroCrypt ransomware   
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/seccrypto/cryptoapi-system-architecture
    Additionally, applications use the Win crypto API to protect their own sensitive data.
    Using Process Explorer, display some app .dlls. One that you will find used extensively is crypt32.dll.

    It's great software. As an active user you could also request to join the insider beta version. Sorry mods if this is not my place to mention this (I never talk about updates out of the forum as I respect the nda)

    The public license isn't the same as your main one and can be shared. You can also drop a private message to a mod e.g Marcos if you are still unsure or create a support ticket. Response may be slower right now due to it being the weekend

    Probably you mean AppEsteem, however, as I said each vendor applies their own criteria. The fact that vendor A adds or removes a particular PUA detection doesn't mean that ESET must necessarily follow their decision.

    I'd say it's very light weight and good detection.

    Tip: When it comes to freeware, always opt for the "portable" version. As such, no software installation is performed.
    If the freeware does not offer a "portable" version in the form of a zipped download, consider that "a big red flag" that something is suspicious about the software.
    Note that LightShot is not offered in a portable version. Now the following I find hilarious. There is a web site that supposedly offers a portable version of LightShot here: https://karanpc.com/lightshot-free-download/ . When you select the DirectLink download, you are greeted with the below screenshot. If you proceed further, you are indeed a fool.

    @MarcosCan someone please ban this user. Reported another of his posts the other week. Noticed something strange as one of his post seemed to be exactly the same post I made. User is basically copying someones post and reposting and then editing at a later date to add a spam link. Possibly hopes users will not notice because the link is not originaly included but have been keeping an eye out

    peteyt received kudos from arsini in Firewall suggestions   
    Not sure if that was an error ha but thought id add that i never made that comment in regards to windows firewall.
    As i mentioned and have mentioned previously as shown by the image bellow by default you cannot see the app name because "allow communication for" is shown even though there is an action area.

    Also as seen bellow previous versions had icons to help see rules

    As you said this seems to have happened when they changed to the metro design. Wonder if there was a way to show the app names with icons with the metro style design

    You can just add another column for the priority number of each rule. You can then sort the rules without affecting the priority.

    peteyt gave kudos to Marcos in ESET and piracy   
    I've checked the VT links but there were only hacktools and cracks scanned. I would say that there's much more malware downloaded from Dropbox or One Drive with download links spammed by email, however, that wouldn't justify blocking the services and no AV will ever do so.

    It can prevent RDP bruteforce attacks which can be also accomplished by setting up an account lockout policy that has been supported by Windows for a long time.

    I thought I replied to this so hopefully I didn't - if my reply was deleted e.g. against rules I apologise. 
    Basically I agree - the main reason I began using Eset is because it didn't follow what other AVs did - it did its own thing but I'm wondering if this is causing issues now. I came to Eset from BitDefender which a few years back became far too unreliable due to bugs - I wanted something that didn't slow my PC. Too many other AVs did things that in my opinion should be done by separate programs e.g. I have ccleaner so don't need an AV to clean unneeded junk files. That's what sold me on eset - sticking to just security.
    However I do feel like it's behind in advanced stuff - by advanced I mean things for advanced users and not advanced technology. I get the whole thing about not wanting to confuse users. An average user should never be given a choice or at least this should be avoided e.g. is this safe or risky - the user will not know and could block something by mistake that could cause issues or even allow a dangerous file. However there should in my opinion be options to allow stuff for those with the knowledge and willing to take the risk. There is always the risk that if advanced features like this are not included in fear of how it will affect average users, those advanced users will end up going to a competitor.

    I use the daily "seat of my pants" results. I know what works for me.
    No A/V program is 100%...that's why they get updated and evolve.
    In my opinion, these A-V test results (no matter who publishes them) only provide the trolls with food (in addition to being (for me) worthless data). We all know (or at least should know) that you never feed a troll.
    Regards,

    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
