    When connecting to a network in places such as a hotel (public, high security settings selected) I continually get an "ICMP flooding attack detected" every five seconds.

    It's not difficult to dig up information as to WHAT these attacks are, but not a damn thing about reacting to them, shutting them down, or DISABLING THE ~Removed~ MESSAGE!

    Finally I just disabled the stupid ESET firewall and restarted the windows firewall which did not go ~Removed~ crazy and spam me with an unkillable message popup (which, IMO, is as bad as any virus!!! This ICMP message is the only *contiually repeating message* I ever get... even the rare detected virus offers up only one notice before it's quarantined/killed).
    With no ability to shut this damn message down = won't be buying ESET again in the future.

    So, ESET, if you want to retain my business, and those who I have suggested your product to, give some instruction or just a r-click>silence message for [time] option.
