    I'd like to add that that while I enjoy Eset and enjoy being part of the insider testing group, and have no plans myself in leaving, I've seen that some features missing are being offered by the competition and other users may decide to jump ship.
    For example a lot are offering more features to help with ransomware e.g. protected folders, rollback etc. While these can go wrong e.g. ransomware may break into the protected folders, surely it is better to have it as extra protection.
    Same goes with things like the ability to block things with no or low results. If disabled by default I can't see it causing too many issues if users are given a warning.

    This is planned for the android version but would be a lot of work for the desktop version. As also noted a good AV is often rarely opened by general users.

    I will add to what marcos has put above  by adding over the years, new features have been introduced e.g. ransomware protection, network device monitoring and just with the new version 15, ransomware shield.
    I have seen other AVs in the past change their UI each year and sometimes it felt like a way to hide there wasn't much new. While I always like to try new versions and see changes, changing the UI just because makes no sense. If it is for making things easier then fine but just to change the look could cause more issues. I'd much rather see Eset add more features over changing the interface

    I hate when things are changed for the sake of change. I like that ESET maintains the same interface throughout multiple versions and yearly updates. Antivirus isn't like an ide that you maybe staring at for a while. It should sit in the background and rarely be interacted with. Last thing anyone should want to do is waste 10 minutes looking for a setting because the interface has been updated.

    Yeah I think if there was more communication it would stop people posting on here. For example a lot of people post their own sites on here after emailing them and having no answer. Often there is malware but if Eset replied it would prevent then having to come here and break forum rules.
    I know this may be easier said than done as they probably receive a lot of emails

    As far as I'm aware the pre release version contains fixes to issues and eset recommend people use it to see if it works and if there are any other issues. However eset don't recommend activating it on work computers in case of any issues

    I can confirm 7 0.16 has just been released which fixes the issue

    I do not have an info on next planned BETA release, but it seems the new versions are being released in a fast pace as generation 7 has now version 7.0.15 available and before there was 7.0.14 and 7.0.12 and all of them were released in September...

    Hello @peteyt,
    the fix for the stuck notification has been committed so new builds should have it fixed.
    When it comes to e-mail notification in Slovak language it seems you submitted the ticket directly from the application and you have it activated with your Insider license (those are registered on ESET HQ, which is in Slovakia), thus you received the autoreply in Slovak language...

    Maybe I'm being a little stupid but if malwarebytes can remove the full extension why can't eset?

    Hello @peteyt
    I use the BETA version too and noticed the bug as well. The dev team has it tracked to fix it (P_EMSA-10346).
    I'm checking it. I guess the BETA tickets for EMSA are routed to HQ support, but the reply still should be in your language...

    I'm split. I wouldn't mind if Eset introduced it but there's the debate if AVs should basically focus on being AVs and leave the other stuff to other users.

    Well, there was one last thing I had to perform to get the router, Win 10, and Eset networking to play together nicely.
    I have long suspected that Win 10 Smart multiple-homed DNS name resolution was the source of most of my network issues. This was further amplified by Eset networking initialization. But since this feature was using my ISP DNS servers combined with the way the router establishes Win 10 network connectivity, I could never definitively nail it down.
    You can read about what Win 10 Smart multiple-homed DNS name resolution does here: https://www.ghacks.net/2017/08/14/turn-off-smart-multi-homed-name-resolution-in-windows/ . The gist of the what is does is:
    What I have been observing after my Win 10 networking "from hell" reconfiguration activities described previously is at Win 10 fast startup and/or startup from sleep mode predominately is multiple connections to IPv4 address 1.1.1 to port domain. Err what? Port domain turns out to be port 53 and of course, 1.1.1.1 is Cloudflare's IPv4 DNS address. First, I have never ever seen these domain connections before. Next is I shouldn't be using Cloudflare's IPv4 DNS server on an IPv6 network. Bottom line is here is a graphic example of my Win 10 network connection being borked by Smart multiple-homed DNS name resolution processing. As far as what this did to Eset's network connectivity processing can best described as a double-whammy bork from the deepest depths of networking hell.
    Anyway, I have disabled Win 10 Smart multiple-homed DNS name resolution and finally, all is well networking-wise.

    This sounds like the same issue I had, which I added to the posts on here 
     
    I had noticed the updates generally had been quicker as of lately, and didn't notice much system issue. However while this update occurred, the PC was very sluggish, with Google Chrome for example taking a while just to open, and browsing seemed very slow, like Eset was causing it to be slow. However I did download a test download from https://www.thinkbroadband.com/download, using the 512MB one which was a lot bigger than Eset's update. I was able to download that in about a 1-2 minutes while as Eset took well over half an hour and even crashed at the end and had to restart. 
    The thing is I can't remember any update issues before the updates where designed to use less resources. I don't know if this feature is any good because if anything it seems to be causing more resource issues/slowdowns, like everything is waiting for Eset to finish

    Appears there are multiple causes involved here. The ones mentioned are:
    1. Windows update cache issues.
    2. Eset update cache issues.
    3. You name it ...........
    Eset needs to provide built-in diagnostic capability for problems like this and other issues. Think along the line of Windows 10 "Fix-It" wizards. I for one am tired of the constant requests for Eset logs to diagnose product issues.

    peteyt received kudos from TUSCHWI in Taskbar icon shows "product update in progress" continually   
    As I've mention elsewhere the updates seem a lot quicker for me as of late. However right now I am seeing Eset is updating itself according to the icon (spinning disk and says so when hovering over it). However I watched the update myself and it finished fine with eset showing the correct update time for the last update. Running an update manually also shows there are no updates but the icon still shows as updating

    Done. Yes I goofed, but so did eset by allowing a signin that was detected as being suspicious to begin with. Also 2FA should be implemented by now, it's allegedly been on the to do list for 6 months now  almost to the day.

    Again as I've said while this could be an okay move there are plenty of VPNs out there compatible with Eset. A lot of people prefer their AV to only work as an AV

    peteyt received kudos from FranceBB in Linux Home User NOD32 EOL options.   
    What I've gotten from what I've seen from Eset is if costs too much to run the Linux home user version which is based on an older version. The cost issue is mainly due to lack of users e.g the amount of users is too small to justify the cost.
    I'm not a Linux user but from what I can see the business versions use a newer system not compatible with the old home version. What I wonder is if there was a way to basically use the business version but with the features of the home version in a way that wouldn't incur any additional costs as it is using the business version rather than its own separate version

    It seems some are seeing Eset scanning for updates in the taskbar icon but eset itself in the update area isn't looking for updates. I've had issues myself with updates taking a while but I've never seen the icon claiming to be looking and eset itself not, but I've seen screenshots showing that it can do this

    Description: MyEset with more tools.
    Detail: You could do as KASPERSKY does in her product, put more options for the user, giving the option of Scanning and other settings remotely.

    A simple test to determine the effect Eset has on your system at startup, disable the scheduled task to update at start up, restart your system. If start up time is drastically reduced than Eset may be the culprit. You can do the same with the scheduled start up scan.

    How long should it take though because generally speaking on bootup eset is taking often in the region of 20 minutes to update. I've supplied some logs and understand that it is using less resources but something under 1mb should be quick. I can imagine a lot of people thinking something was wrong with their AV due to this.
