    Good afternoon all,

    I'm trial'ing ESET 3.0.667.0 and I have the Server/Admin Console all setup, configuring restrictions for the clients.

    I've figured out how to password protect the ability to go into the programs setup & manual disable/enable protection.. But I was wondering if there's a function to disallow them from uninstalling the client?

    I've seen this functionality in Symantec and Trendmicro corporate products, so I assume one exists for ESET.

    If not, I figure I can work something out from within windows.. this would just save me the trouble. ;)

    Thanks in advance!

    I read a post from eset on this board where they said that the password protection for uninstall will be included in the close future, but i have no idea when the new version will be released. So if you need this feature now i guess you have no choice and have to work something out. Maybe someone from eset can reply and say more about when a release with this feature can be expected.

    Hello,

    Support for uninstallation protection will be added in a future release of the software. I do not, however, have any information about a release date for it.

    Regards,
