Manual upgrade

If the automatic upgrade is not enabled or was not successful, you must install the latest version manually. Upgrade your ESET Windows home product to the latest version.


We strongly recommend upgrading to Windows 10 or Windows 11 as your operating system version is no longer supported by Microsoft and will not receive security updates. For compatibility with earlier versions of Windows operating systems, check System requirements in the product's help pages.
