    License checking seems to be #1(Telemetry), no improvements I can see.

    I'm not sure what you are talking about.

    1. Telemetry
    Are you talking about the Telemetry module?
    That is about the Customer Experience Improvement Program.
    See https://help.eset.com/eis/13/en-US/ceip.html
    You have the option not to participate if you don't want to.
    Check your settings in Advanced setup -> User Interface -> Customer Experience Improvement Program

    2. No Improvements?
    You need to read the changelog given by Marcos. I already have given the links and info given by Marcos.
    And, BTW, you should better read the following thread at the Eset forum about BSOD reported by several users; it seems to have been fixed in this version 13.1.21

    @itman

    I just installed NOD32 after having had stopped using it for a year. I see a few changes that I am not sure about.

    1) When I installed it using the downloader that I got when I bought it, it didn't ask for a product key and just activated automatically. Is that something new I guess? Pretty neat.

    2) What I'm confused about is under exclusions there is performance exclusions and detection exclusions, can someone explain what is performance exclusions?

    I can handle one item. NOD32 should have asked for license information and a few other things.
    I've been using ESET products for years and it never failed to ask me.

    oh no this is my 2nd installation, it doesn't ask for any info, it installs and activates right away. I think maybe this is a new thing since I downloaded the installer by logging in to My Eset there is a download button right next to my license.

    There have been a couple of forum postings about this happening. I assume you originally purchased from an Eset web site? Suspect the "Live" installer these use just auto activate Eset with the purchased license key.
    https://help.eset.com/essp/13/en-US/idh_performance_exclusion.html?idh_performance_exclusions.html

    In a nutshell, performance exclusions are Eset real-time scanning exclusions. In other words, the file will never thereafter be scanned. So if the file contains malware that Eset did not detect initially but at some later subsequent time does; e.g. new signature, behavior, etc., the malware will not be detected by Eset. It is recommended that only detection exclusions be employed for this reason if the detection is due to PUA, etc., and the user insists on using the software.

    I'm afraid that I have an elderly moment (or how do you call that?):
    What means "IPM" in "Added: IPM improvements: Gamer Mode support, Expired product pop-up support"?
    Thanks ;)

    Yes, during Initial scan wmiprvse.exe crashed on my system also. Checking Initial scan log I see unable to open error [4] on 55.341 files on my system partition, so I don't know if they were actually scanned or not.

    Usually my full, custom scan took 5 - 8 minutes.
    Now, with those two new options enabled more than 40 minutes.
    (one internal SSD together with one internal HDD). Win7.

    Wow! 26 minutes. I have never timed it before but I'm sure it never took more than a few minutes. I noticed that there was a warning before I started it. Really something.

    It's the Registry scanner folks that is taking so long to run. On my Win 10 1909 build an On Demand scan of only Registry and WMI took over 21 mins. to complete. To make matters worse, most of the file references it tried to scan were locked by the OS.

    Bottom line - if your want faster scans, don't scan the Registry.
