    Hi,

    I have seen about this version The antivirus system now intelligently cleans and deletes infiltrations with no need for user interaction..

    Maybe dangerous if the file is good or a false positive, no ?

    I would like to have your opinion, please !

    Thanks.

    ESET generates false postive alarms very very rarely . It never permanenly removes a threats . It will always first copy it to Quarantine , then it will delete the threat.

    We haven't changed anything in this regard in v. 3.0.657, files that are deleted are stored in a safe form in the quarantine.

    To have files detected as a threat deleted automatically or not is optional and basically the same with any av software so i cannot see this as a problem and no different then other software. Just change the cleaning level if you don't want the files deleted automatically. Also as already said compared to other av software nod32 have very few false positives.

    Explained here: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1247063&postcount=4 It was a bug that caused the alarm to emerge on certain computers (a specific file would not be detected on each computer). Even though it was not a typical FP, the effect was same. It didn't affect as large group of users as an actual false positive would (it would be detected on every computer having a wrongly detected file which was not the case).

    Where is this quarantine? With all the false positives today I haven't figured out how to restore from quarantine. I see nothing in the GUI nor do I see the quarantine folder in the eSet directory, as I did with 2.7.

    As noted in the tutorial sticky under Quarantine and also in the Help section of the program under Quarantine....it's part of the Tools section of the GUI.

    For those un-accustomed to the program I can only suggest they take a few minutes and review the Tutorial sticky and the extensive program Help file. Numerous queries concerning the program can be found in just those two aids.
