By default, ESET internet security checks for and downloads new updates when they are available.
We highly recommend that you leave the auto-update feature ON because it ensures the maximum level of security on your computer.
But Some users might want to disable automatic updates due to various reasons like updates consuming a large portion of their limited data plan.
In this guide, we will show you how to disable this feature in ESET internet security.
Open the main program window of your ESET internet security.
in the ESET window, click on the “Tools” option.
In the Tools section, click on the “More Tools” option.
In the More tools section, click on the “Scheduler” option.
Make sure all the “updates” checkboxes named Regular automatic update, Automatic update after dial-up connection, and Automatic update after user logon are unchecked.
Following the above steps ensures that the auto-update feature in your ESET antivirus is turned OFF.
Disabling the auto-update feature will result in a Security alert in your ESET internet security main program window.
The only way to clear the security alert is to re-enable auto_updates.
In order to re-enable auto-updates and clear the security alert, open the main program window of your ESET product and click the “Schedule update task” option.
