Useless Scan Info Shall Not Be Display In The Scan Log


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I receive tons of blue warning information when I running a scan without any filter. If I need to read the critical info I need to run filter every time I scan my PC.

I suggest eset shall not display such information any more. The version 2.7 is much more simple and useful. It only showed the critical warning info in the log, such as trojan files.

 

Can you please improve this in version 8?

 

Thank you and best regards.

It is important to list files that couldn't be scanned likely due to being locked. If malware locks its malicious files, it'd be easy for it to hide unnoticed at all. However, you can apply a filter and filter out these warnings if you want.

This is not true, all versions from v1 up to now have shown warnings about locked files by default. What's more, v1 and v2 didn't support log filters.

Thank you for the reply. Maybe I forget something.

But my suggestion is to put the highest alert at the very glance place. for now, if it says there's a threat, I need to run the filter. that is a few-more-steps option. I just want to make things more simple.

Or maybe a technique similar to this :

 

(...)

:D

 

But I can also agree that you might want to see the really important things at a glance. Maybe also a summary at the end of the scan log would be useful, like this:

Found treats in these files:

C:\example\file1.exm - XY virus - (...)

C:\example\file2.exm - XY worm - (...)

C:\example\file3.exm - XY trojan- (...)

and so on...

 

BTW: I also don't know how to filter the threat detections out. Are threat detections Informations, Warnings, Errors or Critical? If I select critical nothing is displayed and if I select errors also the errors when opening a encrypted or destroyed compressed (ZIP/RAR/...) file are displayed. So what should I select?
