Thank you for getting in touch, here is the KB that you requested regarding the ESET Windows Updater Utility: https://support.eset.com/en/kb7148-manually-install-windows-10-feature-updates-on-a-full-disk-encrypted-fde-system
The error you are running into is due to the disk not being accessible during the update as it is Encrypted and Windows has not been told to use the Encryption Drivers in order to access the disk, this utility solves that problem by passing the required switches to allow Windows to use the Encryption Drivers and thus be able to access the disk.
Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from JozefCh in Mail Security EOL
ESET Mail Security for Linux is based on the v4 engine which is quite old, and has been in Limited Support for quite a while (continues to receive module updates, only fixes for critical bugs and vulnerabilities, support for existing customers, etc.). It has not been offered for download for quite some time now.
There are no plans for a successor product at the current time, but that could change given market opportunity. It is best that you contact your local ESET office or distributor to discuss further, as this forum is primarily for user-to-user peer support.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Peter Randziak in ESET Endpoint Security 9 & ESET Endpoint Antivirus 9 BETA
Hello ESET Endpoint Security / Antivirus users,
We are pleased to announce the availability of ESET Endpoint Security / Antivirus 9 BETA for public testing.
The new generation of ESET Endpoint products for Windows brings new features and improvements, let us briefly describe the most visible ones.
Auto-update – This feature improves the upgrade experience for administrators and makes keeping ESET products on latest version easier. It is enabled by default and works out of the box. Technology was present in Windows Endpoint version already 8.0, EULA approval was replaced with EULA notifications. Brute-force attack protection - Evolution of reputation and blacklist-based password-guessing defense technology, providing further protection for RDP and SMB protocols in business networks. Official ARM64 support for both EES and EEA for Windows on ARM ( Secure Browser, Machine learning protection and Deep behavioral inspection features are not available for ARM64 platform in this version) The new features mentioned are not manageable by ESET PROTECT management console as of now.
Please check also the list of Known issues for the first public BETA build, we believe the severity of those is very low so they should not affect your user experience much
Device Control: Printing task stays in printing queue when printer is blocked Audit logs contain strings "FeatureId", "OldState", "NewState" Web control: Warn action does not work properly for some websites Secure Browser: Ask me option available for websites in list Secure Browser: Some websites are not loaded correctly in secured browser instance Device Control: Some bluetooth devices are not listed in Populate of Device control
The ESET Endpoint Security 9 BETA and ESET Endpoint Antivirus 9 BETA builds are available for download at https://forum.eset.com/files/category/4-ees-eea-9-beta/
Both .msi and .exe installers are available and the ARM64 version for Windows on ARM too.
We are looking forward to hearing your feedback and experience with the 9th generation of ESET Endpoint products.
For your questions and issue reports, please use this forum directly.
As usually the build is in BETA quality so by downloading and using it, you agree with our BETA program agreement, which is available at https://forum.eset.com/files/file/31-eset-beta-program-agreement/
After a week or so of BETA testing, please fill out this short survey for us https://survey.eset.com/index.php?r=survey/index&sid=798153&lang=en so we can evaluate the BETA program and make our offering even better for you. Thank you in advance.

Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in ESET Internet Security Internal Error message when trying to install
The issue has been fixed. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Windows 11 and ESET Full Disk Encryption // EEE
We are testing Windows 11 and EEE/EFDE currently.
So far there are no major problems at all. Upgrades from Windows 10 while encrypted work just like any other Windows 10 Feature Update. It’s seamless when performed through the Windows Update setting. In the event where you need to use the Win 11 ISO to perform the upgrade, then our updater utility works too.
Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from Nightowl in CVE-2021-40444 are ESET user protected?
Just to follow up since I've been out of the office, CVE-2021-40444 is currently detected as DOC/TrojanDownloader.Agent.DIC and DOC/TrojanDownloader.Agent.DHY.
For more information, please see ESET Knowledgebase Article # 8122, Does ESET protect me from the Microsoft Windows remote code execution vulnerability CVE-2021-40444?
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to fish in Why does a shutdown-startup not count as a reboot for after a ESET Endpoint Security update
As Marcos said above, it's more of a hibernation/deep sleep with default Windows settings.
Control Panel>Change to Large/Small Icons>Power Options>Choose What Power Buttons Do
From here change the Power Button to Shut Down if not already, then as Marcos said Turn off Fast Startup.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Why does a shutdown-startup not count as a reboot for after a ESET Endpoint Security update
That's because you probably have fast startup enabled. If so, shutdown in the Start menu is not a real shutddown but rather a kind of hibernation. That said, the OS doesn't start loading from scratch.
Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from SirMatthew in Taskbar icon shows "product update in progress" continually
Please check to see if there are pending (or missing) Windows Updates. Allow those to run, restart the computer to apply them, and then see if ESET NOD32 Antivirus completes its updates.
Pending Windows updates can block the installation of other software programs.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Few important suggestions for making ESET more powerful
1. Suggestions should be posted in the appropriate topic in the appropriate roduct subforums.
2. Most of the things you've mentioned is already there.
3. Suggestions must not be general like I want a better firewall, better antiphishing etc. but should be focused on a particular feature with as many details as possible provided.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Trojan Detected in RealPlayer
It's a potentially unwanted application (PUA), not a trojan or malware. The detection is optional and correct; the application fulfills criteria for potentially unwanted applications. For more information what PUAs are, please refer to https://support.eset.com/en/kb2629.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in how to install "ESET NOD32 Antivirus" only in Trial version.
I've downloaded the live installer from the above link and chose to activate a trial version. I was was offered EAV to activate:
Was the name of the installer eset_nod32_antivirus_live_installer.exe ?
Anyways, I'd recommend using ESET Internet Security which can protect your machine against exploits targeting vulnerabilities in network protocols like it was in the case of the infamous ransomware WannaCry.
Moreover, the next version of ESET Smart Security Premium will bring a new important protection feature which won't be included in EAV / EIS.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to nabeelmansoor in Future changes to ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium
Idea: Move "More Tools" items into Tools
Reason: Moving "More Tools" items into Tools would simplify the process and make all Tools visible in a single pane. This would be a better way in accessing any of them within a single click without the need of clicking on a button called "More Tools"
Idea: Rename ESET Internet Security to ESET Smart Security
Reason: It would bring about uniformity in product range naming. For example Nod32 AV, ESET Smart Security, ESET Smart Security Premium - In my humble opinion EIS sounds out of place compared to ESS and ESSP.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in ESET block my WSL
Firewall rules are not automatically created in Automatic mode but only in Learning mode.
In Automatic mode, the Network Trouble-shooting Wizard will record all blocked firewall traffic and the user then must manually select what blocked activity to allow.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in Brave Browser Compatibility
Refer to this posting: https://forum.eset.com/topic/19969-brave-browser-not-protected-by-anti-phishing/?do=findComment&comment=97520 .
In Eset List of SSL/TLS filtered applications, set the executable for Brave browser from Auto to Scan and save your settings. Now retest at AMTSO web site.
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in Does anyone know how to get an invoice/receipt out of these people?
Assuming you purchased your Eset license from Eset N.A. eStore, you should have received via e-mail two e-mails. One e-mail contains your license key data and the second e-mail is a purchase receipt.
Note that Eset N.A. which is located in San Diego, CA handles all Eset North America sales and support activity.
