Where are the "detections"????


Recommended Posts

After a computer scan we are presented with a list containing hundreds of item which ESET couldn't scan for a reason or another and a list with detected items ( not a list but a number)

Now the user has to comb through all items in the list (in yellow) to find what was detected.

 

Why is not presented in red the detected items????

Move the horizontal slider to the right so that you can see the end of incompletely displayed log lines.

I can see the "log lines" completely, but rather than combing line by line  to see which one is a "detection" , isn't easier to have detentions in RED ?

Or group them on the beginning or end of the log?

You can apply a filter. Red are unhandled / uncleaned detections, yellow are handled / cleaned detections.

See here for example ; the detection is buried in yellow in the log. I had to go line by line to figure-out which is the detection.

Simply , should have been in red or at the end of the log , after the message "Number of detection:1"

As already mentioned, you can apply a filter to hide unimportant records, e.g.:

Hello Marcos,

Thank you for your answer, but if the product is designed for "home users" shouldn't be such complicated to:

  • see what has been detected (apply filters, how many regular PC users know to "apply filters" ???)
  • see where the "exclusions" are ( in "advanced setup" , between "Real Time protection" and "Advanced Options"????)
  • see what is in Quarantine.
  • see when was the last update

ESET is a perfect example where over-engineering a product brings it to be borderline dysfunctional.

Maybe red should be for cleaned and uncleaned to make it easier or a separate colour?

Handled detections are printed in yellow across all ESET products, including business products, ESET PROTECT and ESET Inspect detections / alarms. In red are unhandled detections which require user's / admin's attention.
