    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.

    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.

    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.

    peteyt received kudos from LesRMed in Create and/or store MFA codes in ESET Password Manager   
    I believe what the user is meaning is using the password manager as an authenticator. Found this for 1Password https://support.1password.com/one-time-passwords/
    What this basically seems to suggest is with some password managers you can use the app to also show the 2FA codes, similar to the Google Authentication App. I myself use an app called Authy for this.
    This is an interesting idea but not sure what i think as having your passwords and the authentication tokens in the same place could also be risky

    The free version of ZoneAlarm definitely has been using  the Kaspersky engine for a while: https://www.pcmag.com/reviews/check-point-zonealarm-free-antivirus-plus .
    The paid consumer and enterprise versions use more Kaspersky components: http://svendsen.me/worried-checkpoints-use-kaspersky-products-heres-disable-remove/

    peteyt gave kudos to sanjay mehta in NSO and Pegasus back in the spotlight   
    the world is rocked by the horrifying news of how despotic authoritarian governments and their agencies have used the spyware pegasus made by NSO from israel to intrude the phones & privacy of journalists/opposition leaders/judges/activists etc.
    from all accounts, it is now becoming clear that the two primary operating systems on phones, android & ios by google & apple have intentional backdoors disguised as security bugs to allow the security agencies to snoop into any smart phone worldwide.
    my question is, as a responsible antivirus vendor, will eset ever be able to protect the users from such illegal intrusions ? is it ever possible, considering that the OS itself has been laid bare to such intrusions by incorporating "security bugs".
    phones, especially the smart phones are are no longer secure, but the stunning silence of all AV vendors is even more cause for concern.

    I see them the same as the passwordrevealor guy, designing something to hack, but NSO gets a pass because they do it for "law enforcement and national security"

    What I find funny is the people behind pegasus keep saying this person and this person etc. weren't being tracked by the software and the next thing they say they don't have access to customer data so can't see who/what their customers are spying on, which contradicts the previous statements

    peteyt received kudos from LesRMed in ESET Tech Support   
    My guess is that this is just included in case the user requires remote help, and it is just there to cover themselves i.e. it's made quicker by the fact the user has to already agree to it. I think they would still need to send the download, but it gets the legal stuff out the way ready. I could be wrong but I think this is probably most likely
