    hi , apologies if this has been discussed already but after a quick search i found nothing

    i have smart security 4 and have been using it hapilly since its release , i have noticed a new item in my startup folder which wasnt there before , i have a new entry hide/waitservice

    i keep a close eye on my startup folder and this wasnt there yesterday i had only 2 entries for ESET both in the services tab

    can anyone explain why it suddenly popped up

    "hide/waitservice" is usually spoken about as a part of the Nod32 egui HKLM\....\CurrentVersion\Run entry in the registry :blink:

    Is that startup folder entry actually named hide/waitservice or is it the contents of a file or shortcut ?

    yes sorry im not explaining myself properly , its an entry in the startup folder under msconfig and you are correct with the HKLM\....\CurrentVersion\Run

    the entry name is

    c:/program files/eset/eset/smart security/egui.exe"/hide/waitservice

    it just seems odd because this entry has suddenly appeared out of the blue ive had all versions of smart security and never noticed this before , just the two entries under the services tab

    so this is part of the smart security setup then? seems odd ive never noticed it before , i have very few items running on startup i keep a close eye on whats going on?

    thanks :D
