    Kaspersky has a stand-alone product that can scan UEFI. It is not integrated with is retail/endpoint AV solutions.

    is there any way i can confirm that the UEFI scanner is active and doing its work? enabled everything in settings, was expecting a logo or some stuff like Kaspersky used to have with their HV, but i don't see any visual difference?
    fired up ESET on my PC to see what's up.

    what do you mean "1 year license giveaway"?

    Perhaps I'm not understanding what you're wanting - but I fail to understand why ESET would give away their new product.

    On the business side there are free time giveaways with purchase (extra time with purchase) - 2 months on 1 year, 4 months on 2 years and 6 months on 3 year licenses.

    Thanks a lot.
    I got it on two computers a few days ago but that was all.
    Finally, I am up to date. :)

    for the first time in history, NOD32 actually updated to the latest build without me having to do a manual installation over the top!

    First time? I know it hasn't always been smooth, but this is far from the first time I've done it - at least half a dozen times a week I upgrade in place using the upgrade option.

    Yes, I just got version 11.0.159.0 automatically offered; no pre-release enabled. Reboot required as usually.

    Changelog:
    At https://www.eset.com/int/home/antivirus/download/
    (Look at advanced download options)

    Version 11.0.159.0
    Changed: The user no longer needs to deselect a check box during installation to install the product to a custom folder
    Changed: Updated LiveGrid status reporting so that yellow status is now not shown until a network connection is unavailable for 10 minutes
    Fixed: The Update window does not refresh after downloading a 3rd party installer
    Fixed: Device Control does not activate
    Fixed: Exclusions are not accepted during the initial scan that is made after installing
    Fixed: The scrollbar does not display in the Update window
    Fixed: Banking & Payment Protection does not show "Protected by ESET" when using the latest Firefox browser
    Fixed: Various internal and localization bugs

    I guess that there is a typo at https://support.eset.com/news6628/
    It says at the moment 11.0.158.x
    And there is another typo there IMHO.
    That page is just very new, so I guess the ESET folks have to edit it a bit.

    This one there at https://support.eset.com/news6628/ :
    Do others see it there too, or is it just me?

    And, of course, the other typo there is the version number:
    It says 11.0.158.x
    And it should be IMHO 11.0.159.x

    You're welcome, Thankful, and thanks to you too!

    I had a look at the ESET forum now.
    The new version 11.0.159.x is announced at the "ESET Internet Security & ESET Smart Security Premium" subforum there:
    https://forum.eset.com/forum/23-eset-internet-security-eset-smart-security-premium/
    https://forum.eset.com/topic/14150-eset-windows-home-products-version-110159x-have-been-released/
    but not at the "ESET NOD32 Antivirus" subforum there:
    https://forum.eset.com/forum/24-eset-nod32-antivirus/
    I guess that they simply forgot to mention it there too.

    BTW, while you are at the ESET forum, don't forget to have a look at the "Holiday Message from ESET" by Aryeh Goretsky
    https://forum.eset.com/topic/14151-a-holiday-message-from-eset/
    A nice message from Aryeh on behalf of ESET, with a personal note of him being now twelve years at ESET. It is great to have you Aryeh at ESET!

    One of the things in version 11.0.159.0 that I noticed is that the colours in the logs have been changed. At one hand a change was needed, at the other hand the new light brown colour makes it harder for me to read them. I need big contrast and not those soft colours ... brrrrr .....

    I hope he and Marcos both are appreciated for the assets they are to the company. There have been years in the past when I had renewed my subscription just because of them.

    TOTALLY!! You should also follow the ESET team in Twitter. Countless numbers of security news and insights. I actually prefer reading their posts and enjoy learning the security landscape. Another thing to add is ESET users are more mature and not kids who cry when their products fail in AV tests. Their forum is always helpful and Marcos is always there whereas some forum you don’t get a reply for couple of days. Cheers!

    Aryeh is the nicest guy - we always look forward to catching up with him and others at the partner conference each year.
