How to enable sound (notifications) when Scans are completed?


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks! ?

Apologies in advance if this has been asked/answered elsewhere, I could not find the info.

(Running ESET Internet Security 12.0.27.0 (fully updated) on Win 10 Home PC, 16GB RAM)

I'm trying to have a sound (.WAV file) play when certain events are triggered. For example, completion of a Scan, or problems found, etc.

I know where to look to see if this feature is available, and it is under Setup / Advanced Setup / User Interface and "Use Sound Signal" is already checked/enabled.

I guess I'm confused because I have NO idea *where* these sounds are located and/or how to change them.

 

Any Info, tips, advice, etc. will be very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance! ?

Hi Marcos! ?

Thanks for the quick reply!

Unfortunately, I do not hear the "Asterisk" or any other sound after a Scan is completed.

Any other thoughts, suggestions?

Does *anyone* running Internet Security version 12.0.27.0 hear a sound played when a Scan is finished or interrupted?

(If so, can you please explain [1] how you did it, and [2] where your sounds are coming from?)

Thanks in advance! 🙂

I also don't get any audio sound notification when a scan completes on IS 12.0.27. Can't recollect if I did on prior Eset versions or not.

This feature has never been a big deal for me since the Eset desktop toolbar icon shows graphically that a scan is underway. When that stops, I know the scan completed.

Same here , never heard sounds from ESET.

I will get an audible on Eset firewall, HIPS, etc.. alerts. But never as I recollect on scan completions.

My best guess is the Windows sound event Eset is using for scan completions is not "*" which is indeed assigned a default audible; i.e. Windows.Background.wav.

I think that explains it , I mute all of the Windows sounds.

There was a bug with the sound signal not being generated at the end of a scan which has been fixed recently. The fix will be included in the next v12 service release.
