[KB7957] Enable pre-release updates in ESET endpoint products in ESET PROTECT

Issue

Details

Pre-release updates are updates that have been thoroughly tested and will be released soon. Enabling pre-release updates gives access to the most recent detection methods and fixes; however, pre-release updates might not be stable enough at all times, so you should always revert to using normal updates after an issue is resolved.
