ESET Remote Administrator allows you to search help topics by keyword or by typing words or phrases to search for within the user guide. The difference between these two methods is that a keyword may be logically related to help pages which do not contain that particular keyword in the text. Searching by words and phrases will search the contents of all pages and display only those containing the searched word or phrase in the actual text.
