    Thanks. I spend too much time juggling backups, changing passwords, updating drivers, and security -- didn't want more things.

    There will be no effect on 3rd party AVs. As long as another AV is registered in the system, Defender will stay disabled.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Stagefreight Not Detected   
    Applications on Android are quite limited in terms of functionality. Antivirus can detect malicious applications and files but it cannot access SMS/MMS or check network communication for instance. These are limitations of the operating system.
    As Wiki says: Stagefright is the name given to a group of software bugs that affect versions 2.2 "Froyo" of the Android operating system. It's hard to believe that you would have such an old version of Android. It's not even supported by ESET so you would not install EMS on it either.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Too many notifications   
    Please check the Detections logs which should provide more information about the email which was detected. There should be the time of receipt, subject and both the recipient and sender logged. If you receive email through IMAP(S) and the detection was called HTML/Fraud.something, it's most likely a known issue which will be addressed via an automatic module update soon. If you have a chance to log in via a web interface to the mail server and remove the troublesome email, please do so.

    Also does version 13 have the same issues?

    Even if you run a scan as an administrator, there will be dozens of files that cannot be scanned.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in eset not scanning certain areas   
    As the notice says, the files could not be scanned due to being exclusively used by the operating system or another application, or you don't have sufficient read permissions. Running a scan as an administrator should scan more files than if run as the current user without elevated permissions.

    Good news! I was able to look up my invoice on Newegg and it included the activation key.
    I'm good to go now.

    IDM supports scanning of downloaded files with a command-line on-demand scanner. It's possible to use ecls for this purpose:

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to JitzyJT in Eset not detecting drive by download   
    Thanks again @Marcos

    That did it. I changed the scan action of IDM from "auto" to "scan" and ESET blocked it straight way. Tried with Chrome, Firefox, Edge Chromium (with microsoft store idm extension) and Brave browser. 

    ESET blocked the download on all four browsers.

    As for limiting the connections which I didn't have to do anyway so  I'm leaving it as it is.

    I'll keep looking if it'll happen again after changing the setting.

    Thank you for now!!!

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in Notifies of optional windows updates as recommended   
    I believe this is a Microsoft "techno-babble" issue.
    These Win 10 non-security updates are classified in the Microsoft Update Catalog as Recommended updates versus Optional updates. However, Microsoft in its KB articles will note that they show under the Win 10 Update Settings section of Optional Updates.
    A true Optional update is Silverlight, etc..

    Thank you, Marcos. This was very helpful, I was able to find an alternative torrent client. Cheers.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Initial Scan Deleted My Files Without Confirming   
    The initial scan run after installation scans all files on local disks and cleans detected files. While malware, adware and riskware is cleaned automatically, potentially unwanted and unsafe applications require the user to select an action at the end of the scan.
    We've run a test and files were cleaned and quarantined alright. Please collect logs with ESET Log Collector and upload the generated archive here for perusal.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in Initial Scan Deleted My Files Without Confirming   
    To begin, Eset doesn't permanently delete files; it places them in Quarantine. They can always be restored from there after setting real-time scan exclusions for the files for whatever Eset detected. This is not recommended unless the files have also been verified by another malware scanning authority such as VirusTotal.
    Eset scans by default are set to "Remedy detection if safe, ask otherwise." Safe in this context means file removal would not adversely affect system operation. Refer to the below screen shot on how to modify default scan cleaning behavior:

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in How to get my site marked as safe   
    Eset has predefined categories a parent for example, could restrict a child household member from accessing. See the below screen shot for a few of them. The alert Eset is displaying is because and assumed the source that installed Eset on their household devices has restricted access to one or more of these categories. Obviously, your web site is classified in one of these parental control categories. I don't know what Eset uses to determine how a web site falls in one of the categories. But there are various web site rating concerns that do so.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to itman in Eset Internet security not detect adware   
    If you are referring to web site ads, Eset will detect malicious ones. It doesn't detect all ads. You need a browser based add-on/extension such as uBlockOrigin to prevent ads from showing on a webpage.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Eset Internet security not detect adware   
    Please submit any suspicious files you might have to samples[at]eset.com in an archive encrypted with the password "infected". ESET detects adware, potentially unwanted and unsafe applications, scam, phishing, malware as well as all other kind of threats.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Does ESET NOD32 ANTIVIRUS 4 detect malicious browser plugins?   
    Version 9 is an old one and is the latest one with support for Windows XP. On the other hand, v13.2 is the latest version for Windows. For Linux the latest is the legacy version 4.0.95.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Does ESET NOD32 ANTIVIRUS 4 detect malicious browser plugins?   
    I see, the latest version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux desktop is 4.0.95. While it's a legacy product, it can detect malware detected by the on-demand scanner in newer products for Windows. That said, if a detection was created for a malicious browser plug-in, it would be detected by EAV for Linux too.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Replacing one ESET NOD32 with a different one   
    I see that you have 2 licenses for ESET NOD32 Antivirus; one for 4 seats and the other one for 1 seat. Since you haven't changed the product with purchasing the renewal, you don't have to do anything but make sure that ESET is activated with the license key BCHP-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-4MDU on not more than 4 machines and with BCHP-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-4MDU on 1 machine at maximum. You can use the license manager at my.eset.com to manage your licenses.
    When either license is due for renewal, I'd contact the seller (ESET LLC) and ask to merge the two licenses into one for your convenience.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Support?   
    ESET LLC doesn't provide a phone support for home users but they offer a live chat. Anyways, the issue you have described will require a support ticket to be created for further investigation and troubleshooting; it doesn't sound like anything that could solved over chat or phone call.
    Regarding a comparison with MBAM, ESET detects all types of threats; from phishing through scam, adware, potentially unwanted and unsafe applications, suspicious applications to malware (worms, viruses, trojans which include also ransomware, backdoors, etc.). We just don't detect benign files, e.g. binary data files that might come with malware but can't be run and do not contain any recognizable data.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in AV is blocking loading webpages   
    1, Correct, the module will be downloaded automatically with engine and other module updates.
    2, Under Update -> Show all modules you can check the version of installed module. The version of the fixed Cleaner module will most be 1213.

    I would recommend collecting logs as per https://support.eset.com/en/kb6159-run-the-info-getcommand-on-a-linux-virtual-machine-and-send-the-logs-to-eset-technical-support and opening a ticket with your local ESET support.
