ESET Smart Security 7 Beta & ESET NOD32 Antivirus 7 Beta Released – Give Feedback and win

Recommended Posts

 

Hi Devs,

A few words on ESS v7 beta

- the installation process (in my case - an upgrade from v6) took something like 10 minutes, on my i3 Thinkpad with 6 GB of RAM (Win7 x64), which is quite unacceptable; It should be a lot less, somewhere around 90 seconds.

On the install screens, it might worth explaining what Automatic / Interactive / Policy-based / Learning modes mean, maybe have them as radio buttons with comments

Bugs

In the Help and support section

 Specialized cleaner - nothing happens when clicking on "Yes" and the link to the knowledge base (hxxp://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=3322&viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US) leads to "Article not found"

In the Scan window

Percentage is not accurately computed - it remained at 99% for minutes and minutes, before it ended

 

 

In the Updates section

After resume from hibernate, it's stuck on signature updates

 

Cheers,

 

Bogdan

90 second installs? I have an MSI with an i5 & 8GB RAM, the install took about 3 minutes. Still, this is an improvement over previous versions. Plus no reboot was required. When there is improvement, no matter how slight, I'll take it. Install times also depends on the ISP speed, which if a cable one, may vary during peak times.

 

The "99%" complete even shows as such with the ESET Online Scanner, even though it may still scan for another 30 minutes or so, & also shows for a bit on V6. Kind of like a gas gauge on an auto, it's not an exact science. Ever notice how long it stays on Full, then once it begins to drop, it does so as a rock? That bugs me more than the "99%' complete does, as I know that I'm soon going to pay for more fuel. No one year subscriptions there.

Mine was 90 seconds or less.

Try thinking in terms of what the program is doing and how fast your components are vs what components you have.

The i3 (1.7-2.0) and i5 (1.3 /w 3.0Max) doesnt compare to an overclocked processor running at 4ghz+

Having 8GB of ram isnt going to speed up your install, but having Ram running at 1600+ or 2200+if ddr3 throughput, will show an improvement with installs.

Then, the writing the install data to program files and organizing all the files will be determined by HD speed. SSD's will show more improvement on install times.

Most people now days on average are downloading at 3-6megabits, with high performance users 20-60. Can safely say that is enough on download bandwidth.

 

With all this being said. Only having the up-to-date virus definitions already prior to starting the install will achieve the said install times.

 

What i have to agree on most is the Progress Bar coding on the scanner. Is the dev team using a Timer ? or a Loop ? It shouldnt sit at 98-99% and have Gigabytes of data left to scan through.

Good luck, and as always , Thanks ESET & Staff for one excellent AV Program.

In the IT industry myself, i know without a doubt, NOD32 engine and its addons destroy the competition !!

I would assume they are counting the number of files, but not all files are the same size. A 500 GB archive would take longer to unpack and scan than a 1 kb text file. I'd rather it works like it does than for them to dumb it down like some vendors that just have a bar that scrolls by repeatedly and gives no real indication of progress.

There seem to be some problem with the update. Most of the time, Virus Signature update in progress is being shown at the taskbar, when there is no update available, it keeps on rotating and the message stays forever, unless an update is released and it is downloaded and installed by Smart Security, the rotation doesn't stop.

I tried Smart Security Beta 7, on Windows XP.
Hmmmmmmmm
The firewall killed the ethernet adapter. I could not enable / disable.
I tried to uninstall. The removal was interrupted.
The program is not in the installed programs, but it is still running.

This version is in the beta? I think it is still alpha :)

My feedback on NOD32 x64 beta 7. My apologies if any of these things have already been suggested or are a result of me missing an option already available.

 

Likes:

01) Alert popup dialogs are very aesthetically appealing and well designed. I would say that they are the most beautiful dialogs of any AV I've used before.

02) The HIPS popup dialogs are very easy to manage. I like the wildcard selections that are offered in the drop-down menu.

03) Advanced settings are very useful. I love the amount of settings available to the end-user.

04) The GUI isn't cluttered up with a bunch of marketing stuff. I could do without the Social scanner, but at least it is implemented in a non-obtrusive way.

05) I can't run this on my real system yet (noted below), but in my virtual machine it has been very light memory and I/O wise.

 

Dislikes:

01) Doesn't remember the size of HIPS rules window. It is tedious to have to resize this window all the time.

02) No way to make alerts open the advanced options drop-down as default. A setting for this would be nice.

03) Incompatible with Jetico Personal Firewall x64. This might be a minor issue for most users, but it is a major issue for me. An antivirus is useless if the only place you can trial it is in a virtual machine. Programs need to be compatible with other programs to have any value for the end-user.

 

I hope this feedback is of some use to ESET. I'm also hoping that the compatibility I mentioned will be fixed so that I can use this version on my real system. :)

 

EDIT: Updated to specify the x64 versions.

I've installed JPF in tandem with EAV v7 beta fine, simply created allowing rules for all operations during installation and both apps seem to be running just fine. If you created allowing rules during installation, too and it doesn't work for you, please create a new topic where we could try to help you troubleshoot the issue. Also post some screen shots to illustrate the issue or give us more details about the issue you encountered,

I would like to say that eset should do something to improve the cpu performance

The load on my laptop was quite high during scans but it was better than eset 6

Eset 7 is way faster 

IMHO Eset should consider speeding up during scans to have a lesser system impact

I feel that the GUI is a bit outdated and if not anything atleast the Icons should be changed

Moreover the eset taskbar icon looks horrible I still prefer the icons of eset 4/5/6

Consider ...

 

Also the HIPS is still pretty weak and the default rules are not so strong 

and we have to make rules using the interactive mode which is tiresome and complicated for

the ordinary pc user

 

Additionally, the firewall should also scan outgoing traffic alongwith the inbound traffic 

Scans could be faster 

The GUI could be a lot more zippier

 

Also , during scans it shows that it is scanning files but the percentage bar remains at 0% and then immediately

jumps to ~50%

Weird 

Also, the percentage bar should show the progress of overall scan not of the folder it is scanning

 

 

Alerts do get annoying sometimes as in if i have excluded a file from detection , why does eset have to detect it always 

even when i have asked it not to

The popups are very good but they could be improved - like the colour scheme etc

Please make a video demonstrating the issue and post the link to it here then.

Both on-access and on-demand scan detections are good; URL detection is excellent.

I submitted about a dozen files and a couple of urls, and they were quickly integrated into the signature database.

Wonderful job, ESET!

Forgot to mention: no conflict with EMET 4, COMODO Firewall, KeyScrambler or Sandboxie; all popular browsers (Chrome, Dragon, Firefox, Opera, IE) are behaving well and protected as before.

WishList: Memory Flash.

 

Though very light even in low specification machines, ESET memory usage could further be limited by using integrated memory flashing. On experimental basis, for example, when I use CleanMem (XP SP3), erkn.exe shows an average memory usage of about 7MB, down from  90MB.

After installing ESET Smart Security 7 Beta in Windows 8.1 Preview, BSOD came out after some time.

ESET Smart Security 6 seems to be working fine on Windows 8.1 Preview.

This is a known v7 issue with Windows 8.1 which will be addressed in the next beta build.

Marcos, did you use the x64 versions? I should have specified that in my original post, which I have updated. The x86 versions do not conflict, only the x64 versions. I just tried again and the conflict remains. I did create a topic located here. I'm not sure how you created allowing rules during installation. NOD32 doesn't prompt for any rules during install. Jetico Personal Firewall only prompts for trusted and blocked network IP addresses. The application rules it creates during install are via the template wizard and I did allow all of the rules it created. I have also completely bypassed all rules in the firewall without success. Unfortunately, the issue goes deeper than a simple misconfiguration of the rules by the end user. Thanks for the reply.

I was surprised to see the message to uninstall anti-spyware and firewall programs as I was about it install the beta. Was there a warning somewhere else? I guess I missed it. :(

Hi

 

I would like ESET to have a powerfull antispam addon for latest thunderbird, maybe clouded. A better way to go to the advanced tool settings. Another UI color.

Win7Pro, SP1, 64bit, ENG

NOD32 v6 ENG (up-to-date!)

 

Upgrade to ESS7Beta results with protection disabled

Restart solves the problem

BUT - ESS message only *suggests* restart, it's not an obligation, and I believe it should be
