ESET free online scanner not installing.


Recommended Posts

Wanted to give ESET a try but I can't install this free one-time scanner. It launches briefly and I can sometimes get passed the "Get Started" button then it disappears. I see a tray icon and it to disappears. 

That's it. Any ideas? I ran a malware bytes scan.. everything seems to be fine there.

After clicking "Get started" a UAC dialog should appear. Does it? Next you accept Terms of use, configure detection settings and then you are presented with the main menu:

Anyways, if you want to see how ESET really performs and protects your machine and don't want to run a one-time scan, install ESET Smart Security Premium and activate a 30-day trial version.

i never see the UAC dialog, just shuts itself off.

Probably an UAC issue with your operating system. Try running the app from an elevated command prompt.
