Advanced users only!

By default, the Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) is pre-configured to ensure maximum protection of your system. While the creation of a HIPS rule may be needed to resolve an issue in certain infrequent cases, the manipulation of HIPS rules requires advanced knowledge of applications and operating systems and is not recommended.

Disable HIPS from the ESET Remote Administrator Web Console

If you do not use ESET Remote Administrator to manage your network

Perform these steps on individual client workstations.

  1. Open ESET Remote Administrator Web Console (ERA Web Console) in your web browser and log in. Open ERA Web Console.

  2. Click Admin → Policies and select the policy you want to modify. Click the gear icon, and select Edit from the context menu.

Re-enable HIPS

We recommend re-enabling HIPS again as soon as possible so that your machine(s) will again be fully protected.
