  3. ESET and KB4056892

    Hello, Microsoft rolls out big updates in stages, so you may have to wait a bit. You might want to check with Microsoft support to see if there are any additional prerequisites or blockers other than security software which might be affecting your deployment. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
  4. How does ESET Nod 32 search for windows updates?

    Hello, I believe the information is obtained through WMI repository, which is local to the computer. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky

  9. A Holiday Message from ESET

    Greetings, On behalf of ESET, I’d like to wish each and every one of you holiday greetings. Whether it's Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Yule, something else, or simply best wishes, all of us wish you a joyous season and hope that 2018 brings you and your loved ones peace and prosperity in the forthcoming new year. On a more personal note, I just started my twelfth year at ESET a few weeks ago, and I have to say I am amazed at how much we've grown from being a small anti-virus company to a global security provider doing things like encryption and 2FA. One thing I'd like to think, though, is that we haven't forgotten our roots, and have continued to provide you with the high-performing protection that defines ESET. The reason for all that hard work is to protect you, our users, and I want all of you to know that we appreciate your trusting us, and that we'll continue to do our best in keeping your systems safe and secure in the weeks, months, years and decades ahead. Thank you for being a part of the ESET family. Best regards, Aryeh Goretsky
  10. Hello, You mentioned that the blue Ethernet cable goes into what sounds like a wall-mounted Ethernet jack, but also that it has a connection to a powerboard. Does the jack in the wall have a second cable coming out of it to get power from the powerboard? Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
  11. Hello, Version was released a while ago, but I just noticed you had a question about UEFI and FAT32, which I'll try to explain: In a nutshell, the UEFI forum needed to select a file system for use by the EFI partition on the disk where additional files are stored (unlike BIOS, not all of the firmware has to be stored on an EEPROM; parts of it can reside on disk as well). Microsoft granted rights to the FAT32 file system for the purpose of developing and implementing EFI. I don't necessarily think this is a bad thing, though. FAT32 support is widely-understood in the industry and would be much easier to implement. Microsoft isn't the only UEFI Forum Promoter (the top level of membership) who has its own filesystem. For example, Apple has HFS, HFS+ and APFS, and IBM has HPFS, JFS, zFS (just to name a few), however all of these are more complex than FAT32 and would require far more work to implement. And that doesn't begin to account for testing, troubleshooting, system overhead, etc. It's relatively easy to repair a FAT32 partition if it is corrupt. And then there's licensing, which Microsoft was probably more than willing to provide on a royalty-free basis to the UEFI Forum. Anyways, that's my guess as to why FAT32 was selected. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
  12. Hello, You mentioned that your computer is connected directly to NBN via a blue Ethernet cable. I'm guessing that NBN means Australia's National Broadband Network. Is that correct? I have seen it mentioned in the news here in the U.S., but am not tremendously familiar with it. There may be some ways to resolve this, but without having a better understanding of how things are wired together it is difficult to say for certain. So, my first question to you in order to figure out how this works is as follows: What's the blue ethernet cable plugged into at the opposite end from your Windows XP computer's Ethernet port? Does it go into some sort of device like a modem, or is just a receptacle in the wall similar to a power outlet? Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
  13. Extremely New to ESET

    Hello, The "NOD32" name dates back to the Windows 95 days, when companies would add a "-32" suffix to a program to denote that it worked with 32-bit versions of Windows. This branding became so popular that for years more people recognized the NOD32 name than the ESET one, so it has stayed around. These days, though, it has lost that original meaning and there are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of ESET NOD32 Antivirus available, as well as other programs like ESET Internet Security, ESET Smart Security Premium, etc. The 32-bit version of NOD32 will not install on a 64-bit version of Windows, or vice-versa, so you're not likely to run into any problems installing the "wrong" version of NOD32 on your computer. The ESET Knowledgebase has lots of articles about NOD32 at Also, there's a very big video library on YouTube (currently over 200). ESET is always adding more articles and videos, so be sure to check each frequently for the latest stuff. Once you have ESET NOD32 Antivirus installed, you can plug your USB flash drive into the computer. ESET NOD32 Antivirus will see it and prompt you to scan it. When it finds malware (malicious software), it will either remove it automatically or prompt you to remove it, depending upon how ESET NOD32 Antivirus was configured. If you need help over the phone, you can always contact tech support and they can walk you through the process. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
