Now that there's been a sufficient amount of exposure about Windows 10 sending information back to Microsoft (even when the user has adjusted the privacy controls), I'm wondering if this is where Eset will be able to shine.

 

In other words, does Eset flag via popup alerts any of the surreptitious transfers of information Windows 10 performs---and if so, what should we be looking for as they're detected and brought to our attention? Has anyone started listing them somewhere?

 

Thanks, in advance!

That sounds a LOT easier than simply unplugging the cable. :P

 

Personally, I'm looking for something a little more fine-tuned, with surgical precision, rather than a full-on sledgehammer.

The question is: What does ESET-Firewall do over Windows-Firewall in security perspectives?

The main enhancements Eset's firewall provides are in addition to what is said in the ref. link are an intrustion detection system(IDS). Also the ability to run in learning mode to create rules automatically and/or interactive mode to receive alerts for undefined inbound and outbound connections with the option to create a rule for same. Also an easy to access and read log of firewall events. Finally the ability to receive alerts for any modifications of applications for which a monitoring firewall rule has been created.
