Drivers always allowed to load

Drivers shown in this list will always be allowed to load regardless of HIPS filtering mode, unless explicitly blocked by user rule.

Add – Adds a new driver.

Edit – Edits a selected driver.

Remove – Removes a driver from the list.

Reset – Reloads a set of system drivers.


Click Reset if you do not want drivers that you have added manually to be included. This can be useful if you have added several drivers and you cannot delete them from the list manually.


Drivers always allowed to load are specific for each device and cannot be edited using ESET PROTECT policy. After installation, the list of drivers is empty. ESET Endpoint Security fills the list automatically over time.
