New Network Connection Prompts Uac Dialogue


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I've had a quick search but I can't find anything related to this issue.

We have smart security installed on several machines.

The latest installation presented a post-installation problem unseen before.

 

OS = Windows 8.1 Pro

Installed product=ESSH-N2-4, ESET Smart Security 7

 

When running as a standard user, connecting to a new network, such as a new wireless network when out and about, the UAC dialogue box pops up asking for an administrator password. This is, it seems, something to do with ESET as ESET is doing something (to secure the new network?) when we try to connect. The dialogue box mentions that the programme trying to change settings (and thus driving the UAC dialogue box) is ESET.

 

This is a problem as we obviously do not want to give standard users the administrator password.

 

How can we change the settings to prevent this behaviour?

ESS v7 is available for home users and small offices up to 5 computers. Do you actually have so few users in your company? Business users should use Endpoint which can be managed by ESET Remote Administrator and network administrators can define trusted subnets remotely or before pushing Endpoint to computers.

Defining trusted subnets is something that standard users shouldn't be able to do without a password.

Just FYI this depends on the distributor in your country. Some distributors also offer the real business packages (with ERA) for less than 5 users.

Yes, and because of this it won't prompt if you when you select "public network".

 

And AFAIK ESS also remembers the networks that were already defined, so if you don't change your networks very often and they can be recognized as the same network you only have to configure it for every network one time.
