    Whats wrong with the firewall?

    They would not release an AV program if it was not safe to use and protect youo_O

    I thing new versions of ESS should have:


    - Browsers running sandboxed as well as any other program I choose

    - All new programs should be sandboxed by default. I want to be able to try the installation of a program “sandboxed”, see it’s behavior, the registry keys and files that he creates, the processes he installs, what it attempts to modify, etc before the real installation.

    - Protection against main system modifications: system files, registry etc..
    [has found on Geswall]

    - Some sort of system restoration or backup

    The effort in my opinion should focus more in this kind of protection than in signature updates that reach several megabytes. The root of the problems should be secured in the first place, then if the developers have time and want to create signatures, fine by me.

    I know that people have different level of computer knowledge and some things may be complicated. But at least when main system modifications occur we should know about it and have the possibility to act.
    A simple message explaining the activity is not normal - only allow it if you trust the program may suffice. At least they can’t blame the antivirus.
    At this level I think Geswall is great and I am truly impressed.

    The main reason I started using nod32 was the use of heuristics and the low use of system resources.
    Nowadays the heuristics used is insufficient, to say the least.

    Ok many thinks here that I read are solutions that for example not should integrate into an security Software (I think).

    - Tuneup-solutions in AV use much memory and work in the background with slow down the pc.
    - Backup- and restore should limit e.g. by own Rollback activities and should not replace an default Backup-Solution.
    - Also Passwortmanager should not be a part of an Security Solution because if you unistall that, you cannot access (in most cases) to your saved passwords.

    All things above slow down the PC and are not the Idea of an Slim, fast and good Security Solution.

    There are many TuneUP- and Backup-Solutions in the market e.g. TuneUp-Utilities, SimonTools, Ghost, ShadowProtect etc.. to work fine.
    An Passwort-Manager like RoboForm e.g. works better as any solution in securitysoftware I have ever seen.

    This are Tools that should be let the User to be free to use this as seperate installations and not integrated in Eset. I think I would not have bought Eset Smart Security with all this tools above.

    @flateric1975
    The Firewall does not have an Strong HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System). Its a simple IDS that works only if an program startet on your computer. The HIPS does a little more he detects all activities an block it before the malicous software beginns to write Hooks in the System. You should look at Comodo or Online Armor to know what I say.

    Also what I missing is an own better protection for the Security. By the way that been sufficient with an simple trick to shut down the Eset processes. So without the User have realised it Malicous Software control your System.

    An realtime monitor that can detect invisible processes is an a good Idea that can realised to put an Eset Hook-Process in OSI Layer 0. At this way you can control whole System and processes that works above.
    This function can put into the SysInspector-Tool for more flexibility.

    greetings,

    The option in the firewall to allow processes based on services. For example not svchost.exe on that and that port. But that you can say, allow svchost.exe only for windows time and windows update and block all other svchost.exe requests

    1. Add a time remain for scans and a resume scan if you need to stop it for any reason like a pc restart or need to turn off pc if it going to take longer that dont suit you for example s next time you press scan it just carries on from where it left off. to next update or v5

    2. Add tool bar to incredimail 1 of my kids has his own pc and likes that program.

    3. Add a toolk bar to all browsers IE , Firfox etc to scan websites.

    4. Have a safe site system that addes a tick to safe site and users can send it thoughts of a site.


    5. How about a system that allows you to find out were an e-mail has come from via ip address? I get e-mails not to me claimimg to be from Lomdon yet i can find out on another site its from Iran or Poland.


    Thank you

    1. With Web Control (URL check) .
    2. Improve Firewall features especially the attack detections.

    Policies are a nightmare to manage.

    Simplify or scrap the policy editor and start over again.

    Provide explanations for every setting in the right hand side of the policy editor. Every. Single. Setting. Look to Microsoft's MMC snap-ins for an example. There are hundreds upon hundreds of policy settings and it is a real pain in the neck having to go back and forth between the policy editor and the documentation.

    That said, IMPROVE YOUR DOCUMENTATION (English-language). I cannot stress enough how poorly written and incomplete ESET's documentation is. You need to re-write the doc and have it proofread and edited by a native English speaker. I can't speak on behalf of the other languages supported by ESET. I just think the English-language version is poor.

    I second all of the above! These issues are important enough to mandate a new thread ... in fact, they should just be taken care of and improved.

    Hello,

    When a sight impaired user has the firewall in Interactive mode they must switch back and forth between graphicis in order to listen to, and then address the necessary interaction.

    Can it be changed so that there is no need at all for the GUI in those cases?

    Thank you,
    BFG

    Scan only folders that have changed: Would shorten scan time quite a bit for people who do not download/change content. How this would affect the footprint, I know not.

    Give Spyware Detector a bone. ESET alerts on the .exe, the update function and two more items concerning updates

    I want:
    More ProActive
    Less resource usage
    Better detection

    but more importantly, this is what i dont want!
    Password manager
    TuneUp utilities
    Toolbars in browsers
    Link scanners
    Backup solution

    This is what i like, and it should not change:
    No questions asked like "Would you allow this program to run?"

    2) Stable versions :)

    1, PCU has been supported since NOD32 v2. V3 users with older builds have been recently updated to the latest v3 build 3.0.695 automatically.

    2, every program suffers from more or less serious problems. A completely problem-free software is utopia, no matter how much vendors strive for creating perfect software. From small vendors to software giants like Microsoft, everyone release patches / hotfixes / service packs more or less frequently.

    you make :
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=244619

    "If an important fix is made, it's usually provided within a module update distributed automatically with a signature update."

    and support of thunderbird 3 is not important for you?
    for me it is important !

    eset is the ONLY one never to update software or notification ! :blink:

    Again, automatic update of any software that is hooked deeply in the system may lead to serious problems on certain systems in certain configurations. ESET does not and will NEVER jeopardize our clients' safety by releasing updates that may cause severe issues with their home or production systems. That said, ESET will never update dozens of millions of their clients after a few days or weeks of a particular build being available to the public for download. A product must be proven mature and almost 100% perfect before it's ready for a global upgrade.

    At any rate, this has been discussed in another thread and there's nothing more to add. The point is the safety of our clients is our priority.

    but i am an "client" i have paid for 2011, and i don't like look every week website for see an update !

    Did you do a survey to customers for the PCU? if they want or not ? NO !
    eset don't read their customers, it is their choice not ours

    why don't make an option :

    PCU :
    -> disable
    -> only important fix (default)
    -> all updates

    and all body are happy !
    I have an computer, my brother have an computer my mother has an computer, my father has a computer. it is funny update manual all news versions ? :gack:
    no, i have now eset on my computer and i put a free antivirus auto-updater

    the customer is king ?

    - Option to switch between firewall profiles via right click on systray icon
    - Less sluggish firewall log (right now he isn't much usable in realtime with "log blocked connections" checked)
    - No hard-coded firewall rules (at least an option to disable ALL od them, not many of them as is now)
    - Support for more e-mail clients (TheBat for example)

    I received 2 installation error messages; when I enter them verbatim into your support DB none of them are listed.
