    There are several executive files listed in C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus folder:
    callmsi.exe
    ecls.exe
    eeclnt.exe
    egui.exe
    eh64.exe
    EHttpSrv.exe
    SysInspector.exe
    SysRescue.exe
    Which .exe file should I choose to enable auto virus scan in my download manager?
    I run Windows 7 64 bit.
    Thanks!

    I wondered why majority of antivirus programs treat ALL key generators as malware?
    Why those anti malware programs are not ANALYZING them to determine whether they are malware or possibly not?

    As for ESET, we don't detect keygens intentionally. Another thing is if they are packed with a packer that prevents seeing the real code, which may trigger heuristic detection. However, this should be rather an exception in comparison with some other AVs.

    ESET is giving this message:
    "variant of Win32/Keygen.AI potentially unwanted application"
    The key word here is: potentially.
    I would prefer it did a little better analysis.

    ESET has an advanced classification of threats according to risk levels:

    *Malware --> this is what is considered harmful
    *Potentially Unwanted Applications
    *Potentially Unsafe Applications

    --> PUA are programs that may not be intentionally malicious.

    Yes, you are right.

    Advanced heuristics detected the file even before ESET release a specific signature!!! :)

    Files detected by Heuristics are sent to ESET for exhaustive analysis.

    That is the reason that ESET's heuristics is one of the best
