I have gone back to NOD 32.

But even in lab tests, Eset is always almost the absolute leader in terms of no false positives, isn't it? In my experience, it has never triggered any false positives at all. đź‘€
In your experience with Eset, did you configure the HIPS with custom rules? This is what @Shadowra is referring too. Out of the box Eset provides strong protection but it's balanced for security and usability like many products only Eset has the ability to add custom rules to its HIPS and depending on version, it's firewall as well.

Then there was a misunderstanding. But, HIPS triggers in manual mode are just notifications rather than false positives. For a high level of security, you can simply put HIPS in learning mode for a week on a fully configured machine, and only then put it in manual mode. But I don't do that, in my opinion Smart Security out of the box is enough, I just increase detection levels a bit for machine learning and activate a couple more side settings.

Adding custom rules is a bit different than just setting hips in manual mode. When creating custom rules you specifically designate an action of allow/block or ask.

Learning mode into smart mode is sufficient for most users wanting increased security measures.

Not that it really matters, maybe, but what I ran a trial of ESET back 8 months ago, I couldn't find a Quick Scan option, and found a link to their forum post mentioning that they don't include it, as the real time protection and on-access scanning take care of it. Is that correct, or didn't I know where to look in the app itself?

It does not have a quick scan, you can use a smart scan or a custom scan, although the reason it does not have a quick scan is there is a automatic start up scan that already does a quick check in memory and autorun locations.

Does ESET NOD32 have a way to save your configuration ? Or do you have to re-do it every time you re-install it?

Also, does ESET NOD32 have an offline installer ? Or does the installer have to work online ?
Yes you can save/import/export the xml file

Offline installer:

i think for complete system protection , it would be good to have application whitelisting . but it is pain the ass to configure and tune however less infections even under sophisticated attacks
