Got a question. Kinda techyish

Okey dokey, will try it.

I hope it isn't constantly doing "TLS handshakes" to every damn site I want to go to.

Okay so here's the deal. I was using Kaspersky anti-virus and it expired and now I am switching to the one RJ very kindly gave me, ESET security.

I have attempted to eradicate all the Kaspersky program - and I thought I was successful - except I keep getting these annoying TLS handshake pauses. When I attempt to open up a website - even ones I use quite often - it sometimes has this long wait while it does whatever security thing it does.

I assumed that ESET was doing the same thing as Kaspersky - like maybe that was a standard security thing these days - but RJ, I believe you indicated that ESET doesn't do that.

So I guess that means there is still some remnant of Kaspersky behind the scenes ????

When I open "all programs" there is nothing Kaspersky there BUT when I go into uninstall programs - there is one Kaspersky thing there. AND it won't let me uninstall it because it says there are updates in progress. No matter when I try it - updates in progress. I also can't figure out how to just open it - and maybe change settings?? - (because it is nowhere in my program list)

Any thoughts on this shit?
 
As safekeep antivirus apps make it hard to uninstall, to make sure viruses don't attempt to uninstall them

You need a Kaspersky provided uninstaller, kavremvr.exe you can download it here: https://support.kaspersky.com/1464

It's just a program with a captcha thingy to prove you're a human and not a bad bot virus

Seems to have worked. I don't know why anyone purposely signs up for those TLS handshakes to begin with - fuck those.

But I ain't seem to got them no more.

Actually no. I am still getting some of those TLS handshakes. Not as many - not for the sites like gamelive I go to all the time - but I've had a few in the last little bit.

There is no sign of anything Kaspersky anywhere - not that I can see.

Maybe another reboot will make a difference??

:dunno:
 
Yeah try a restart.

You did turn it off in Eset, right?

When the program is open Press F5 key on your keyboard to open the advance menu > From the side menu 'Web and Email' > SSL/TLS > press the button to disable 'Enable SSL/TLS protocol filtering' > Press OK to save > restart computer.

I didn't turn anything on or off in ESET. I just kinda loaded the program and let it go.

Yap. I keep meaning to google it (which is to say, duckduckduckgo it) but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
