This is a known issue on Windows 7 and Windows 8 OS after upgrade to v14.1. The issue occurs while fixing setup classes, the reason is not yet known; the issue doesn't occur on Windows 10.

Please try uninstalling ESET and installing v14.1 from scratch.

My OS is windows 8.1 and I have the same problem after updating to version

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling eset and it did not solve the problem.

What should I do next?

Please sign up for the forum and then create a new topic in the appropriate product forum.

Also provide:
- logs collected with ESET Log Collector
- a Procmon log from installation or a Procmon boot log from a system boot if ESET is already installed.

Please carry on as follows:

- save the following to a plain text file fix.reg:



Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



- open the reg file and import it to the registry
- reboot the machine

I have the same problem with Windows 10. Apparently updated yesterday and now I have both "webcam protection" and "device control" listed as non-functional. Tried to paste the screen, but this doesn't seem to allow that.

Please open a support ticket with your local ESET distributor since advanced logs will be necessary for troubleshooting. Moreover, reporting issues is only possible after signing up for this forum. Guests are entitled to post only quick questions without registration.
