"Failed to Change Settings" after update

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone,


My version of ESET Smart Security 8 updated last night and since the update, I have been getting this error when I try to change anything:


"Failed to Change Settings"


Every setting I try and change (Firewall Mode, Anti-Stealth, anything) comes up with this error. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling ESS multipul times, have run the automatic ESS remover, all to no avail. I have also attempted to disable anti-tampering to no avail.


It seems, however, that when it comes up with that error, it does actually make the change except for when creating a firewall rule.


OS: Windows 8.1 x64

Account Type: Single Account connected to a Microsoft Account. Do connect remotly to the computer via teamviewer.


Any idea what could be causing it?

We'd need to check a Process monitor log from that situation. Perhaps the best course of action would be contacting Customer care.
