    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 Marcos in Cracked Antivirus Issue   
    Since malware often disguise as a crack, keygen, etc. you should avoid using them regardless of whether it's for antivirus or another application.

    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 itman in ESET reporting website cert revoked   
    Eset revoked cert. detection is correct - see below QUALS screen shot.
    Note! Chryslercaptia.com URL cert. is OK. It is the cert. used for myaccount.chryslercaptial.com URL that has been revoked.

    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 How can i do for use ClamWin into WinRAR   
    This is an ESET support forum, not a ClamWin one.
    If you want WinRAR to run ESET to scan archives for viruses, use the command-line scanner ecls as per https://support.eset.com/en/kb3417.

    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.

    This is a leaked license which was canceled. If you want to continue using ESET, please purchase a license via www.eset.com.

    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.

    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.

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

    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   
    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.
