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.

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.

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.

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:

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
Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in NOD32 Gamer Mode Shortcut (?)
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 18.104.22.168?
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
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.
