    Hi everybody

    There is a Huge bug in eset smart security 4.x
    That can easily close eset smart security when you run this command
    Code:
    taskkill /f /im egui.exe
    and the PC will be at risk

    I ask the administrators to remove this bug

    Disabling the GUI does not disable the ESET Service and in some scenarios is desirable. Here is one example.

    I'd merely add that v5 protects the egui process as well.
