Hi just wanted to ask ,what is the difference between notifications and alerts? Do I need to enable both to see virus warnings?
Alerts have to be enabled for virus warnings.
Notifications are used to show you additional information. You can choose what you want to see as shown below.

Hi if I am using VS pro with moderate settings ,can I disable hips in Eset? Thks
Considering that I have not seen HIPS kick in at all im years of using the system (I don't browse warez sites.... Anymore) I don't see a reason to disable them. Who knows there might be a rule in there that will affect the eset self defense system? Since eset is so light from the get go then what's the problem of having nice hips?

Hi just seen the latest real world tests, Eset 99.2 .avast 99.7 .
Eset gets 2 stars ,avast 3 stars .Really?
they both did very well and also Eset is better in performance.
Nothing against avast but 99 is 99.
The actual difference in protection capability between these products is so marginal that it can be ignored. They perform equally well in this test.

There really is a new firewall. (y)

Not only does it allow you to set a rule for an app by location path, but it adds options: using a digital signature, an app name from the Microsoft Store, a service, and you can apply the rule to child processes.
And there's more, so whoever is in the mood will have a lot of fun setting up the firewall. :D

I want to create a rule to ask user whether to open an application without a valid digital signature, but I find it's impossible in the new version of ESET...
