    ESET fail


    Hi all,
    Last night windows defender told me it found a trojan and quarantined it and deleted it.
    After that I ran a full scan and all was fine. To be on the save side, I went to ESET online scanner and had the whole computer checked. It came back with 11 more threads. Looking at the log, I found that ALL of them where from programs that I had installed, some years ago like:
    Freemake video converter
    Ultimate Boot CD
    Google chrome
    Image burn
    Winzip driver updater
    Plus 1 reg hack that I don’t remember
    All of these are false positives and most are old so they should be in there data base.
    Needles to say, I am not impressed and I don’t see any reason to pay for a subscription.
    Just my 2 cents

    I'm running ESET and have both Ultimate Boot CD and Google Chrome - neither are being detected as threats on my system. Maybe you got some deeper issues.

    Are the threats PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) or malware ? Do you scan often with WD ?

    Many rely on WD as primary AV and periodically use the free ESET online scanner. I have no issues.

    I have eleven years of experience with Webroot on five computers. It is not uncommon for a virus to sneak into my file system and lay dormant without being detected. What's important, is that your AV catches it when it starts up, so far, Webroot has caught every single one that starts, and most before they get through the door. ESET more than likely would have stopped it, ESET has good detection rates.

    They are not PUPs, they are legitimate programs that i use, some for years and i had to download them again.
    How is a driver updater a PUP? how is freemake a PUP.
    My opinion of ESET has not changed
