    Hello,
    I have installed ESS4.0 on a network of about 150 stations.
    Everything was ok,until a few days ago when I observed that the AV detected intrusions:conficker worm.
    After that , on random stations apear the following error:
    ''an error occurred while starting proxy server.checking of application protocols(pop3,http) will not work''
    whenever you click ok on the message box it will reapear!
    I attached a jpg with the error.
    I must mention that the update is ok.and no other setting then the initiall ones(made on instalation,a few month ago) were made.
    Thanks in advance...now...i'm waiting..:rolleyes:

    What build of v4 do you have installed? What OS is it? Have you already installed the appropriate hotfixes MS08-067 , MS08-068 and MS09-001 as well as changed admin passwords to non-trivial ones to prevent Conficker from spreading via network?

    Eset Smart Security 4.0.437.0
    OS:Windows XP SP2 but with all updates done.
    Admin pass is a non-trivial one :)
    The virus is already spreading in the network,the ESS is detecting it,sometimes removing it,but no use...
    So,I guess the error message is from the worm?

    UNINSTALL your current NOD32 + restart

    then download the latest v4.0.467 of NOD32 anti virus or Smart Security

    i believe the "minor improvements" will fix that =)
