Description: Remodel the Interface
Detail: Modify the appearance of antivirus a little, because it has been the same for years.

I can see why some may like this but having the interface the same means people know what they are using. I remember using an AV that changed its interface every year at one point but people never knew where things where anymore

Actually advanced users love the ability to customize numerous settings. Common users don't need to go to the advanced setup at all since ESET products provide well-balanced protection out of the box.

Add option to realtime scanner to block obfuscated Powershell scripts. Option would be dependent upon Win 10 AMSI option enabled in the Eset GUI. Justification Microsoft added a like mitigat

It is very simple. Use SetThreadExecutionState. See: link to Microsoft Windows Dev Center.

 Gaming mode could be easier to activate, some time on the past it was present on the context menu on system tray icon. I would really like to have it back there, at lest a option to do it faster. Also, could implement a way of customizing the context menu with what you actually use.

 Also, could implement a black/dark theme to the UI. 

 I've been using it for so long, I actually love the Smart Security Premium, but, this little things, sometimes are really boring to set up every single time you want to play a game.

-I thought, there could be a "White List" where you put the programs you'd like, and then Eset's SSP auto enter "Gaming Mode" when it detects the process running.

Please elaborate more on what benefits using gamer mode has for you. If you disable automatic gamer mode activation for applications running in full-screen mode, what issues do you observe while playing games?

I've been asking for the ability to customise the content menu for a while now so that users can add stuff they'd prefer to see e.g. firewall troubleshoot wizard

This topic is checked by product managers and staff responsible for decision about new features to implement so posts from you never go unnoticed. Unfortunately, customization of the tray icon menu is not an easy task and since it would cost too much in terms of resources, it's not on top of the to-do list.

Oh yeah sorry if I sounded rude as I do get it's not a priority

Description: PLUGINS for the browser.
Details: Develop plugins to block dangerous and pop-up blocker sites such as Kaspersky, Avast and Bitedefender. These companies already have this kind of security.

This has been asked before a few times I believe but a lot of people are against it as toolbars, plugins etc. can often cause more problems.  For example you mentioned Avast - I posted something in the general forum a week or so ago about Avast having its browser addons removed as it was actually tracking users - something that people not only find shady, but something people might expect an AV to prevent not actually to take part in. I will paste the link of that post bellow. 

As for ad blockers eset has often been popular because it doesn't include stuff that could be classed as non security. For example many AVs these days include features similar to CCleaner e.g. removing unneeded junk files. While this may come under privacy, eset has always focused more on actual security e.g. preventing viruses, hackers etc. This is probably the reason eset doesn't include an ad blocker because while adverts can be annoying, they do not fall under security.

However it is important to note, that while eset doesn't include a popup blocker it has features, technologies etc. designed to protect you while browsing. Its web protection and other tools are designed to block malware online including those via adverts so while it may not be able to block adverts it should prevent any from infecting you. 

I don't actually work for eset - so I don't know eset's exact stance on these things, but I don't expect eset would go down the route you mentioned.

Description: Ad blocker.
Details: I hope Eset has a ad blocker function similar uBlock Origin with built-in rules and allowing import custom rules (EasyList, EasyPrivacy,...) without any browser extension.

Sadly eset hasn't got an adblocker. As mentioned in my above post I cannot see them adding one but I don't work for eset so could be wrong. Eset does protect you however from adverts containing malware

I am back with Eset because i trust it. 

Suggestion - better User Interface - Kaspersky has a good one.  Makes decisions for me - i can run the optimize settings when i want to.

Kaspersky allowed me to stop any updates or scans starting when i am doing a Power-Point presentation.

Thanks. :)

For this there is gamer mode which activates automatically when an application is running in full-screen mode.

When a full program update is installed you are given the option to restart eset to finish the update.

I would love it if there was also a shutdown option so the user could shutdown the computer when finished and when booting back up the update would be properly installed.

The problem is doing a standard windows shutdown doesn't work - so if for example a user doesn't have time to do a reboot and shuts the computer down via the standard windows way and then boots back up later they would then have to go to eset and click the restart option. Not sure if this method would be hard to implement and I know it's not really an important feature or priority but it could be handy

Description: Searchable list of recent changes
Detail: Provide us with list of all recent changes in rules / settings, so we can find what we broke and correct it. Selected item could open in it's real location (i.e. recently added firewall rule will open in firewall settings, selected).

Why: While installing new GeForce Experience I miss-clicked application change dialog, effectively blocking it. And I couldn't find, where the rule was. It wasn't on the firewall list, adding it there in learning mode didn't helped,... while disabling firewall made application working. Only through interactive mode I was able to resolve it. I would like way more control over the process by having all those changes in one place.

Did you check the firewall troubleshooter wizard?

Not at that moment (had no idea it's there and now it's empty) but it could be step in good direction (thanks for pointing me to it).

So I would change my FR to troubleshooter wizard to include all other rules and settings changes and allow longer time periods for filtering (at least up to a week - some changes might take time to be noticed).

An IP country blocker. Like OA Armor, developed by Australian company (Tall Emu), until the program was sold to Emsi Software GmbH .

Description: Logging of dropped packets/blocked connections in Interactive Firewall mode

Detail: When I deny access to something in Interactive firewall mode there's no way to later check what site that particular app tried to connect. It would be very useful if all the dropped packets can be log so that one can later check everything and do the research if required. This logging shouldn't be enabled by default but there should be an option to enable that when the user activate Interactive mode from advanced settings.

Forgive me if this has already been mentioned, I did not read through all 36 pages of this thread. The Tools tab could be better designed. The first page in EIS  shows only three Tools. Connected Home, Banking Protection and Anti-Theft. You must then click at the bottom to get to the second screen of more tools. Anti Theft is typically something that once it's set up, it's rarely accessed. Same with Banking, typically I click the shortcut on the desktop. So this entire first page is essentially useless, whereas Live Grid, Logs, System Inspector and Network Connections  are things I tend to check more frequently. Perhaps add more functions on the first page and/or move functions not frequently used to the second page.

I can't answer for eset but wonder if they have those stuff shown by default as they are less technical while as the ones hidden by default are for more advanced users e.g. system inspector.

I have mentioned it would be handy for more customisation. For example allowing you to choose what you see when you right click on the eset tray notification e.g. if your a gamer and use gamer mode a lot it would be handy. Same with the firewall troubleshooter which I find is quite hidden. I do know however customisation is not a priority which I do understand

Thanks, I thought of suggesting customization lol. But it would be somewhat complicated and obviously not something worth the overall effort and not worth making it a priority. And yes, it probably is designed that way for ease of use. I've read a number of reviews complaining about the "myriad of settings" available. Seems most people just want a "protect me" button lol.

I don't know about you, but I personally am already fed up with the ads that always appear on the internet. Because my service is related to computers and websites, I always have to endure these stupid ads. Good thing that 3 weeks ago a friend recommended some AdBlockers chrome and with their help I got rid of the annoying ads.
Before installing the programs I had a very hard time, full of nerves and because of this, I almost break up with my loved one. Look what nonsense can come out of simple ads on the internet.
I was tired of them.

Description: Program/application auto update

Details: the option which allows ESET to update windows applications with one click saving time and effort from updating each application individually and help in securing these programmes with their regular updates

I can't see eset doing this myself  and i can see some users finding it an unwanted extra but I have wondered if this could be a good idea before.

Hackers will look for vulnerabilities to abuse to get access to a computer and one way would be out of date software so I do see some merit in this idea.
