    I think there is a bug with the Potentially unwanted application feature in Eset.I Installed Dell dock made by stardock and get potentially unwanted application warning.but these items are left unchecked in the settings.Is this a Bug or is it the hips that triggers it.

    I have to select No Action to continue,can anyone duplicate it or is it just me that this happens to with these features unselected.

    MY OS is Dell Laptop windows 7 HP 64 bit

    Was the file detected by real-time, web protection or another scanner? Are Pot. unwanted applications actually disabled for that scanner?

    Apparently the detection comes from web protection. I wouldn't recommend disabling PUA completely, rather select "No action" in this case.

    You can use the advanced options in the alert window. Take into account that file was correctly identified as a grayware and sometimes can be a unrecognized threat detected by the packer.

    Thanks guys its all good now.but I think what happen here is I used stardock.com that was directed to cnet for download is when it was flaged.Hence I found it Direct from dell and all went perfectly.So who knows just maybe a good thing.I hate redirected downloads that take me away from the official sites.

    By the way what happen to all the mumbo jumbo with cnet uncheck this uncheck that or I am installing other crapware.glad I am not click happy anymore and take the time to read things.
