eset not working after reboot

Recommended Posts



after I contacted the support weeks ago without response I hope I get feedback and hopefully solution here.


The Problem occurs on restart my MacBook Pro (OSX 10.8.5) and latest ESET Cyber Security ( Normally eset starts normal when I boot my mac but sometimes (I think 10%) it won't run. I recognized it sometimes later when I didn't saw the icon on the the top bar.


In the Logs in Eset I could not get any useful infos. I read system logs and the only thing I get is:

I can only get eset run by running from terminal:

sudo /Applications/ESET\ Cyber\ Security.app/Contents/MacOS/esets_daemon &

sudo /Applications/ESET\ Cyber\ Security.app/Contents/MacOS/esets_gui &



In the logs in eset there is nothing listed! I had deinstall and reinstall the app completely without effect.


Can someone help me out or had similarly problems?

no I haven't get any response from support. In the meantime updated to Mac OSX 10.9.1 and use ESET Cybersecurity I had reinstalled ESET but same problems.


Last 5 fresh boot periods ESET wasn't working in 3 boots. One problem was that I didn't always realize that it don't work so my system is not unprotected.  I had to manually start ESET daemon by terminal via 

sudo /Applications/ESET\ Cyber\ Security.app/Contents/MacOS/esets_daemon

Then I could start the ESET Cybersecurity App. Before this it will not start. In the Tools->Log there are no details about that.


Please help me out.

If you are still having this issue, it is likely due to your Mac having a Permissions problem with your user profile.  To fix this you can run the following command to resolve the issue.


sudo chown -R "$USER" "$HOME"


There is also another method of correcting Permission issues using Mac OS X's GUI which is fully detailed in ESET's KB Article here: hxxp://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN2835
