    If you purchased it through the ESET US website and are indeed in Canada, what I would do is submit a support ticket.
    I don't know if you are a business or home user, so you can select at
     https://www.eset.com/us/support/contact/s3/?seg=home
    or you can call ESET

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in How Pepole try to use ESET without buy license- ridiculous   
    ESET develops and sells commercial products. Only a small portion of them is provided for free (such as ESET Online Scanner or ESET Mobile Security freemium). Otherwise it's possible to trial our products typically for 30 days and then the user must purchase a license or uninstall the software.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to TomFace in PC slow   
    Well the first thing you could do is update to the latest version (v12)  https://www.eset.com/us/home/antivirus/download/ as the newer version may be lighter than what you have and most likely has enhancements. If you have a current license, the update is free.
    You may want to review the End of Life schedule at https://support.eset.com/kb3678/#eav just to stay on top of things.
    Or you could upgrade to EIS https://www.eset.com/us/home/internet-security/download/ which has more features, but there would be an additional fee.
    As you give very little information, anyone would be hard pressed to give you an accurate diagnosis.

    It will appear in the list but it requires another module to be updated which is currently on the pre-release update servers.

    ESET is known for being light since the first version it was released when other AVs was plaguing and killing the machines like Norton in the XP days.
    I believe ESET is still doing the same thing , staying light till this day. that might be the decision of saving the "15-26MB" of RAM.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in You fully ruined the scanning system.   
    First of all, please respect the principles of etiquette and keep the tone of the discussion polite and civil as required by our forum's rules.
    Also please refrain from making conclusions without investigating the issue  first. Have you already raised a ticket for your local customer care and gave them a chance to check logs necessary for investigation?
    To start off, please provide:
    - ELC logs
    - A Procmon log from a scan
    - Step-by-step instructions of what you did, what was the actual and expected result. If possible, create a demonstration video too.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in ESET (12.0.31.0) - Removal of Security Alerts from GUI   
    You can disable the appropriate application status in the advanced setup -> user interface. You understand that you will take all responsibility for the security of your system since ESET won't be able to 100% protect you from Internet-borne threats, phishing, etc. By disabling Web access protection you won't gain any benefit but lose one of the most important protection layers.
    Even if one was very cautious and restrictive in what he or does on a machine (e.g. visits websites only with javascript disabled, checks every https certificate on visited websites, uses policies to prevent script interpreters from running, disables USB ports to prevent devices carrying data from attaching, etc.), I wouldn't recommend disabling a single protection layer.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in ESET (12.0.31.0) - Removal of Security Alerts from GUI   
    It is actually a very bad idea to disable Web access protection. I would understand that if a computer was not connected to the Internet at all, however, even in such case you wouldn't gain any benefits from disabling the protection.
    You wrote that you have firewall rules created but how a firewall could protect you from malware injected in a legitimate site for instance? Firewall is just one protection layer but then there are many others that are there to protect you if an attacker or malware gets through other protection layers.
    Moreover, you have ESET NOD32 Antivirus installed which doesn't include firewall and network protection (includes also Botnet protection) that can protect the machine from exploits in network protocols. If you had an unpatched machine, you would be protected only with ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium against the infamous WannaCry for instance. A firewall might not help if there was a compromised machine in the trusted zone.

    We've recently made 12.1.30.0 available for users in the ESET Insider program.
    Also it is not clear what you meant by " I miss the success of ESET 2002 - 2007". Please clarify as to what you meant because ESET is a successful company with products being enriched with new protection and technology features on a regular basis.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Rami in ESET disables GlassWire Firewall   
    ESET Internet Security does have a firewall included so that's why GlassWire firewall is disabled , so they won't conflict with eachother , you need to remove GlassWire firewall , If you would like to keep using it , then you will need to switch Internet Security for Antivirus.

    Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from RB fashion in Future changes to ESET NOD32 Antivirus   
    Hello,
     
    Not every requested feature can be added at once.  ESET's project managers have to carefully look at the technical and market requirements for each request.  Sometimes, the amount of work required to implement a requested feature may mean that it needs to be put off for a few version releases until enough engineering time can be budgeted to implement, test and maintain the feature.  And sometimes, a feature might be requested that is just out of scope, offers little real-world benefit to customers or may even be against ESET's business practices.
     
    In any case, what I would suggest is to provide as detailed a description as possible of the feature you are requesting, in order for ESET's project managers to make better sense of it, and a little patience, as not everything can be done at once.
     
    Regards,

    It's not that big deal in my opinion @nonamelab, It's a way to bring more people to use ESET and in the same time giving the person who invited the other person who doesn't use ESET , a month of usage or more I don't remember exactly.

    Welcome to the ESET Security Forum!
     
    ESET is pleased to provide you with this resource in order to make it easy for you to ask questions and receive answers about ESET's products and services.  Understand that the ESET Security Forum is a private community for existing customers of ESET, prospective customers who are interested in ESET's software, ESET employees and business partners.  Because of this focus, it is not like a general public forum, where conversations take place on a variety of non-ESET and non-security related topics.
     
    With that in mind, we have the following rules in place:
     
    When registering for an account on the forum, please fill out the information accurately and correctly.
    Do not enter the Username and Password for your licensed ESET software, but instead choose a username (in Latin) unique to this forum.  You should also choose a suitably complex password unique to this forum as well. Do not create multiple accounts.  If a person is found creating multiple accounts, ESET reserves the right to take whatever actions it deems necessary, including banning, blocking, deleting and/or merging them.  The exception to this rule is ESET staff, who may create multiple accounts for testing purposes. No impersonating other forum users, ESET employees or other people. Use appropriate language in the forum.  No vulgar, obscene or rude language will be tolerated. No vulgar, obscene or otherwise offensive images or video will be tolerated. ESET staff have the right to move, edit or modify messages that you post.  This may be done for clarity, to move a message to more appropriate forum where it will receive more attention, or for other reasons outlined in these rules. All decisions by ESET staff are final, and not open to discussion. This list may be updated at any time.  Please periodically visit this page to review any updates. Do not post direct links to any executable files, malicious/suspicious software or web sites in public messages, even if you think the software or site is clean and incorrectly detected by ESET.  Break up the URL by inserting spaces into it, or replacing the protocol handler with an obfuscated one, like . Do not attach malicious or suspicious files to messages, even if you think they are clean.  Write a public message, and then use the "report this message" option to send a private message to ESET staff with a link. Do not post any personally identifiable information (PII) about yourself, such as an email or mailing address or phone number, in a public message. Do not post the username and password or license key for your ESET software in a public message. Do not post links to software cracking tools, license key generators, pirated copies of software or other illicit software in the forum.  If you wish to report a site, write a public message, and then use the "report this message" option to send a private message to ESET staff with a link. Do not post private correspondence (private messages, email, etc.) publicly within the forum. Do not post "A vs. B" or "Which product is best?" type messages in the forum. Do not post overtly commercial messages in the forum (this includes in your signature). Do not pre-announce releases.  Due to differences in scheduling, it may sometimes take several hours after a release has appeared on ESET's web site for the release announcement to appear here in the forum. Do not abuse the forum's rich text controls.  Messages and signatures with inappropriate font selection, including size, color and, for signatures, length, may be edited by forum staff to conform to standards of decency. Do not ask other users for logs, especially if they may contain sensitive or other personally identifiable information. Posts made on behalf of a 3rd party company may only be made from accounts registered with an email address from the company's domain (verifiable by ESET staff). Do not use the "Report post" function for other purposes than reporting inappropriate content requiring moderators' attention. Do not report possibly incorrect detections or blocks (false positives) in the forum unless they may affect a lot of users. If you think that your application or website is detected or blocked incorrectly, please report it to ESET as per the instructions at https://support.eset.com/kb141. Be civil, do not post sarcastic, offensive or mocking comments towards any person or entity. Do not post messages that are off-topic, keep the discussion to the point and do not lead it astray. To discuss a different, unrelated issue or question, always create a new topic. If you have any questions or comments, please contact one of ESET's moderators.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Cousin Vinny in Request for feedback on a plan to change handling of Potentially Unwanted & Unsafe Applications   
    Speaking as someone who is hands-on IT management rather than a reseller or MSP:  That is how I would expect it to behave and should.  My endpoints are configured for strict cleaning so I have not dealt with this issue, however if end users were greeted with option dialogs during an av scan without any way for the admin to suppress I would be quite aggravated with the product.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Request for feedback on a plan to change handling of Potentially Unwanted & Unsafe Applications   
    Dear forum members,
    We are considering a change in the product's behavior but before doing that, we would like to consult you, our field experts with regards to the problem and suggested change.
    We kindly ask you to:
    Read this message carefully Talk with other people of your support staff, whether they are aware of issues related to current behavior Provide any comments (supportive / negative) towards the proposed change As of now, one of the issues that our customers are facing is the behavior of products in managed environment, related to handling of detections and cleaning of Potentially Unwanted and Potentially Unsafe Applications (hereafter referenced as PUA)
    The following are prerequisites of the behavior:
    Default cleaning settings on the Endpoints (normal cleaning) Detection of PUA is enabled. With these settings we were reported the following problems by several customers and resellers / MSPs that we have interacted with directly during a customer research.
     
    Main problems are:
    End users on local machines are forced to respond to an „interactive window“ that is asking for action in case of a PUA detection, which can by triggered by protection modules or the on-demand scanner. They offer the „ignore & continue“ action even in managed environments where the end user should not make decision. Users can try to install a PUA which usually ends with multiple interactive windows appearing. If a PUA is already in the system and you schedule an on-demand scan, it will be reported to the user again and a dialog with action selection is shown to the user. If this happens on a server, it will be never resolved; the dialog eventually expires, and then will be reported again and again to the server upon re-scanning. The only solution currently is to set an exclusion or to set cleaning mode to strict which will automatically remove the PUA detection without asking.
     
    What are we planning to do:
    We are planning to change the product behavior in a way that our endpoints will automatically block / clean PUA detections in managed environments according to the option selected by an administrator, meaning that the end users will never see interactive windows. Alerts (only one) will be reported to the ERA, and it will be up to the security administrator to either set an exclusion or acknowledge such detection. After exclusion, reinstall of the affected PUA will be needed on the target system; restore from quarantine is not enough since „cleaning“ also removes references which are not restoreable (this is valid also now, when Exclusion is „cleaned“).  
    We would like to hear from you and ask for feedback whether you consider this change as risky from the perspective of customer expectations. We do perceive the problem as serious and would like to change the behavior even for existing users by means of a module update. An alternative approach is to change it only in new versions of our products, meaning Endpoint V7 and eventually backport it to a new 6.6 hotfix if that happens in the foreseeable future.
    How the interactive window looks:

    How it looks in the logs:

    How it looks in the ESET Remote Administrator:

    Please note that we are also bringing a lot of changes into the ESMC:
    Cleaned „threats“ are automatically going to be marked as resolved (once the behavior is implemented, you will automatically get the PUA cleaned at the „first detection“) and will be automatically „resolved“ in ESMC (no duplicated entries when one clicks „no action“) You will be able to set exclusions directly from the threats section, basically by „one click“; there will be also an option to set „exclusion by HASH“ in EES.  
    Thank you for your feedback & support.

    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
