    Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from Peter Randziak in Antivirus vs Internet Security, Disabling Features.   

    Here is a snippet of a post I made on Reddit discussing the differences between ESET NOD32 Antivirus, ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium:
    Feature Comparison
    NOTE: This section is updated from the post here discussing the ESET Version 13 consumer programs.
    Program► Feature▼ ESET NOD32 Antivirus1 ESET Internet Security ESET Smart Security Premium Advanced Machine Learning ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Advanced Memory Scanner ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Anti-Malware1 ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Anti-Phishing ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Anti-Spam 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Anti-Theft 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Banking & Payment Protection 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Botnet Protection 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Cloud-based protection2 ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Connected Home Monitor ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Deep Behavioral Detection ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Exploit Blocker ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ File encryption 🚫 🚫 ✔️ Firewall 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Native 64-bit Support ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Network Attack Protection 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Gamer Mode3 ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Offline Updates4 🚫 🚫 🚫 Parental Control5 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Password Manager 🚫 🚫 ✔️ Remote Management4 🚫 🚫 🚫 Removable Media Device Control ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Router Vulnerability Scanner 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Script-based Attack Protection ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ System Registry Scanner ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ System Settings Restorer ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ UEFI Scanner ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Vulnerability Shield 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ Webcam Protection 🚫 ✔️ ✔️ WMI Scanner ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ [I'll point out that this is very much a "best effort" by me, and it's possible I got some things wrong. Check with an actual ESET sales person if you have a question about supported features.]
    1 Although this program contains the word 'Antivirus' in its name, this is strictly for marketing purposes because that's what most people use as a search term. These programs are all actually beter described as anti-malware programs, and detect adware, agents, bootkits, droppers, injectors, password stealers, potentially unsafe applications, potentially unwanted applications, ransomware, rootkits, spyware, trojans, viruses and worms, just to name a few of the things caught by the software. Today, actual computer viruses account for less than 10% of malware detected on a day-to-day basis.
    2 Also known as ESET LiveGrid (and previously called ThreatSense.Net), this provides real-time threat telemetry as well as assists in blocking certain kinds of malicious software such as ransomware, dangerous web sites, and so forth.
    3 Prevents pop-ups and messages from being disabled while running full-screen applications. Called Gamer Mode in home versions and Presentation Mode in business versions.
    4 This feature is only available in business editions. See this post fore more information.
    5 Blocking of undesirable web sites. Called Parental Control in home versions and Web Control in business versions.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Eset Internet Security Failed to deal with Ransomware !!   
    Closing this topic due to trolling. The OP obviously also lyed, initially pretending to be a user who accidentally felt a victim of ransomare and then he turned out to deliberately perform amateurish tests by skewing the reality to bash ESET in favor of his favorite AVs

    I recommend contacting your local ESET distributor and asking for the feature while providing more information on the use case. The more users will request it, the higher chance we will consider adding it providing that the feature would be useful for many of our users.
    Since everything has been said and explained, we'll draw this topic to a close.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to MichalJ in Is there a screenshot of ESET Endpoint Antivirus 8 GUI for Linux   
    Hello, for what purpose you would need that? 
    I was checking the official documentation, and it does not include screenshots. We might ask our QA / PM to get some, but I am interested in understanding the purpose. 
    But as a sneak peek:

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in For how long exactly is ESET Security for Kerio still supported?   
    Products that have already reached EOL will stop receiving module updates in approximately 3 months. However, it will be possible to purchase extended update support. More information should be available soon.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Scanning UEFI and other places outside OS   
    You can consider the machine safe if no malware is found. Just theoretically if it was a government machine with highly confidential data for instance and you would suspect that somebody tampered with hardware to eavesdrop you, in such case you should consider buying a new machine made by a certificated manufacturer through a trusted authorized seller. In a nutshell, there is no need for overreaction and being paranoid.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Is ESET File Security for Windows Server scanning archives in real-time?   
    Scanning archives by real-time protection doesn't make sense regardless of the AV, it would render the machine unusable. Just imagine that archives would be locked for several minutes or hours during the scan on each access.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in What is the difference between an original ESET license and a pirated ESET license?   
    Either a pirated license cannot be used for activation or it will be cancelled soon and ESET will stop providing protection.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to peteyt in What is the difference between an original ESET license and a pirated ESET license?   
    One thing that happens on this forum is a lot of users post that their license has been flagged. This normally happens when someone or some site sells a license to more people than the license is designed for.
    What seems to happen is the seller will buy a license for 1 single user and resell it to multiple users but as the license is for one user eset's systems will automatically detect it is being used on multiple devices and block it. For this reason eset always recommends users buy directly from their website and not other sites Including the likes of Amazon and Ebay who have users selling things.
    In general a lot of software can be obtained illegally via cracks but this is very risky as cracks are a popular method for distributing malware. The problem is you don't know what they have added to the program

    It is not true that ESET monitors keystrokes. Accessibility must be allowed for anti-phishing to work and filter websites.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to gbzm in 404 error when trying to access EEE Dashboard on server.   
    Problem fixed. Windows server updates had reactivated a couple of services which had nabbed port 80. Simply disabling them negated the issue. I'm now planning on moving the EEE server onto a different port to resolve the issue permanently during the downtime over the weekend.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Eset Internet security blocks too many good and safe websites!!!   
    We kindly ask you to provide a handful of examples of websites that are blocked by ESET and you think they are clean. It is as simple as that.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in If You Use Licensing Cracking Software, You Need To Read This   
    It appears that a number of Eset users employ license "crackers." It also appears that a number of Eset forum participants feel that the most widely used , the KMS software family of crackers, are safe. As noted in this recent analysis of KMS based software by AVLabs in Poland, they are definitely not safe to use.
    KMSAuto and KMSpico are the most commonly installed hacktool on computers in Poland

    Currently we do not have a product for Windows 10 on ARM64 systems. However, please stay tuned for latest news on this which we will announce here and through our website www.eset.com some time soon.

    Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from Abdulkadirozbudak42 in Future changes to ESET NOD32 Antivirus   
    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.

    The reason the behavior was changed because of complaints that the yellow "warning color" was too severe an action to perform on messages which were supposed to be more informational in nature.  I'm not really sure what can be done here, though, as different customers have different preferences, and trying to allow the icon to be customized would result in all sorts of problems, ranging from support issues to attacks by malware (in order to hide it/change it to normal).

    The default behavior of the software is to check for updates every 60 minutes.  ESET releases an update every seven hours or so (rough estimate on my part).

    The goal of this message thread is to provide ESET with feedback on changes and new features you would like to see in future versions of ESET NOD32 Antivirus. Please use the following format when providing feedback:

    Description: A very specific one line description of your feedback.
    Detail: A more detailed explanation of your feedback. Please feel free to make this any length, but be sure to use terms everyone can understand. If your suggestion is an extension or update to an existing discussion, please include a link to it in your message.
    Here is an example:
    Description:  Raspberry Pi support
    Detail: The Raspberry Pi is a small ARM-based single-board computer popular
    with hobbyists.  I think ESET should make a version of ESET NOD32 Antiivirus for it.
    You are welcome to discuss the merits of each and every suggestion, but keep your comments on topic, concise and thoughtful.  There are other parts of the forum to discuss issues.
    NOTE:  When making your requests do not make general statements such as "better detection, HIPS, firewall, cleaning, and so forth."  ESET's threat researchers constantly examine new threats and release updates to the virus signature database and to the modules in order to improve these functions.  If you have a specific feature or functionality you would like to see added (or improved) please post it here, but general requests to "make things better" are not helpful because they do not give ESET detailed enough information.  Thank you for your understanding.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to AzJazz in ESET SysRescue Live hangs during boot   
    I tried Legacy BIOS and UEFI, both instances hang during the boot process. The Legacy BIOS did bring up a text menu momentarily before it hung with a black screen with a flashing cursor.
    I have had luck getting Ubuntu and other Linux distros running on my PC - but there has sometimes been an issue with some of my more modern Nvidia RTX GPUs where the open-source nouveau drivers don't recognize the Nvidia GPU. This feels similar.
    I have been able to get past this by being able to modify the grub boot options with a nomodeset option to keep the distro from scanning for the graphics configuration, but I couldn't find an way with ESET SysRescue to modify the boot options.
    There are a lot of folks out there with Nvidia RTX GPUs that will face this same issue, so it would be nice if there was a solution available.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Win32/Tofsee   
    Please delete c:\users\aseno\dbkluqfb.exe in safe mode. The file would be detected if the machine was connected to the Internet. Let us know should the malware be still detected in memory.
    It appears that it's connected to C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-1416434526-3052328013-949319557-1001\$RQ4M581\Debut-Video-Capture-660-Crack---Registration-Code-Free-Download\5fdf7dade09165f-files\setup_x86_x64_install.exe which is also detected. We strongly recommend to avoid using cracks which often contain malware.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to peteyt in suggestion for all eset products   
    The only UI change I wouldn't say no to and I've brought up before, is allowing some customisation e.g. when you right click the eset icon e.g. allowing for gamer mode or other frequently used options to be there.
    While off topic I've also been wondering lately if there would be a better way to troubleshoot eset issues. Currently when eset doesn't work and people post on here a mod will often ask to try and disable a certain feature and if that doesn't work possibly ask to disable something else. I was wondering if a kind of troubleshoot wizard could help where the user could use this and the wizard would try different things e.g. disable different things, and at least find a possible feature that is causing the issue although I don't know if this would work and probably be too complicated
