    Or by File Hash (ShaX or MD5).


    Yes ! there is!
    Because having a choice is always a good thing.
    Why? I'm a security analyst (A newbie of course) and I work on many Malware Samples. I don't want my AV or IS to delete my samples or test cases without my permission.
    That's why.

    As far as the software's functionality goes, I think they have it down pat for the most part. The only thing I could think to add would be perhaps a description of file-processes that are trying to engage network traffic, maybe with a listing of normal known elements, and a note alerting user when something might look suspicious in INTERACTIVE MODE.

    What I would really, really, like to see, is a few different icon-sets for the tray icon.

    IE. Standard Set
    1.BLUE for normal, orange for requires attention, red for somethings jacked up, etc.

    2. Customized set with a wide color range, purple, magenta, teal, turquoise, black or white, etc. where USER can change each base color icon to whatever they might want for each respective status.

    I would find it very useful to centrally manage multiple computers in the Home version. I note that the recent version of a competing product has this function for their Home version. To avoid introducing drag on system performance, it could be implemented as a module that runs separately from the main engine.

    you can do that with ESET Remote Administrator and ESET business edition, which is very similar to the home edition

    have an option for global potentially unwanted applications and potentially unsafe applications.

    just saves a bit of time rather than having to set the options for each module separately.

    Is there going to be an update to have ESET smart Security compatible with Thunderbird 6.0 and later?

    It would block way too much stuff. I have had customers that used that and called wanting ME to fix it when they couldn't access our site. :thumbd:

    What about yearly versions of ESET (ESS 2013,ESS 2014....EAV 2013,.....)
    .I think company is good enough to release yearly versions of ESET products every year.Even Avira also released their first yearly versions (Avira 2012) few weeks ago.

    So all great improvements delivered by module updates several times a year do not suffice and you'd prefer, let's say, minor gui facelifts showing the current year o_O

    Nooooooooooo, please! :argh:

    Sorry but I just hate yearly version numbers.
    Releasing a new version each year because it's a new year doesn't make the product better :thumbd:

    Please ESET stay out of this yearly version number trend :thumb:

    +1 I hope eset will keep up the current release number system. yearly release versions are uneeded. eset release new versions when they feel are needed and not before.

    again +1 please do not go the way of everyone else. i came back to eset because they are the only ones staying true to their ways free of all kinds of TOTALLY UNNEEDED JUNK and please for the sake of everyone DO NOT EVER start adding in facebook and twitter garbage to a av its totally ridiculous imo.

    also no backup and things like "total" suites with online storage and all that junk...

    maybe cloud checking would be kinda cool, and a better firewall for basic app control instead of just auto or crazy pop ups. id like to see a firewall with simple app control for the normal user. just a allow or deny connections instead of having to learn or make rules etc.. only other thing maybe a slightly more updated gui. otherwise leave well enough alone.

    Totally agree for this ESET include the things which security suite actually needed and never included useless crap into their product.But I just wanted to say that if ESET release yearly versions it will definitely get much more attraction than this.I'm not talking about new features and technologies here because ESET already got enough features I'm talking about business.

    Well if you think that ESET needs to increase their sales then there are far better ways to do that than starting with yearly version numbers/releases.

    Fix the User Interface to show why ESS requires attention.

    Make SmartScan SMART! It's ridiculous to spend an hour scanning a disc when 99.99% of the files have already been scanned and are unchanged.

    It's actually smart. Perhaps you have a lot of larger archives on the disk so that decompression takes more time. What's more, you suggest not to scan files that have not changed, in other words, to ignore possible malware that hadn't been detected before.

    I would say don't for goodness sake go down the yearly upgrade path, just take a look at v4 - v5 v5 still not fixed for many
