Solution

Latest version of ESET Smart Security/Premium10.0.369

Latest version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus:  10.0.369

Latest version of ESET Internet Security:  10.0.369

If you have a previous version of your ESET product installed (how can I tell which version of ESET I have?), follow the instructions below to download and install the latest version. 

Solution I. Install over existing version (Recommended)

    Download ESET NOD32 Antivirus Live Installer

    Download ESET Internet Security Live Installer

    Download ESET Smart Security Live Installer


    Download ESET Smart Security Premium Live Installer
  2. Click Save when prompted and save the file to your Desktop (once the download has completed, you may be prompted to click Run and begin the installation process). If the installer does not run automatically, navigate to your Desktop or wherever you saved the downloaded file and double-click it to open.

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to install and activate your ESET product, or see one of the following Knowledgebase articles:
