    I don't use Outlook or any of those email types of programs. I only use websites to check my virtual email like hotmail, gmail, etc. Hence I don't need email client protection from ESET 4. I can't seem to disable it though...

    I've tried going into the advanced settings tree, clicking on Email Client Protection in the left window, and unchecking the "enable email client protection" box in the grey portion of the window. It turns it off and I get a pop up notification stating that "I may not be fully protected". For verification I'll click the SETUP tab in the normal window outside of settings tree, and I'll see it says EMAIL CLIENT PROTECTION DISABLED. But when I restart the pc it renables itself!

    How can this be? The program has no right to do that if I initially told it to turn it off. It shouldn't just turn itself back on reboot. I don't need to use that feature and would like to use the spare ram it uses because I have an old old old old computer.

    Is there a way to permanently disable EMAIL CLIENT PROTECTION?


    Thanks

    You can disable integration with your mail client (the last item in the setup tree). Disabling other settings will not free any additional memory.

    From what I've read that only disables the added toolbars! It doesn't disable the entire EMAIL CLIENT PROTECTION. BlackSpear even posted it in his EAV STICKY on this forum. And of course you do gain back some ram when you disable major features in most programs. When I tried to disable as per my first post, it I calculated the system ram usage with SYSTEM MECHANIC and it was much lower...
