ESET Endpoint Anti-Virus & SAS 9.4 Exclusions

Recommended Posts



I'm just wondering if someone can help me get the correct settings and exclusions in place so that SAS 9.4 can function correctly for our end users.  We have about a dozen users who use it.


We're using version 6.3.2016.0 of the ESET Endpoint Antivirus client on Windows 7 Enterprise x64 with a current set of Windows Updates applied.


Here's a link to what SAS recommends and here are the exclusions I've got entered in....




Exclusions in place...













%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\SAS Temporary Files\*






In addition to all of this, I've got


Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications OFF

Enable detection of potentially unsafe applications OFF

Enable detection of suspicious applications OFF

Enable Anti-Stealth technology OFF


Under the "Real-time file system protection" area under ANTIVIRUS I have Advanced heuristics/DNA/Smart signatures OFF as well as High sensitivity heuristics OFF.


I'm just trying to find a happy medium at this point.  I don't really know what to try anymore.


Attached is a capture of the errors our end users get.

You should wait for some of the moderators or technical experts, or contact

your local ESET Support.


With the right exclusions you shouldn't have to deactivate those security protections.


I think you can check the exclusions by downloading "Eicar" file to that folders,

with disable first the http scan.
