So your ESET has, or is about to expire.  We recommend renewing ESET since this will help to keep you protected online against threats like viruses and ransomware, as well as other protections depending on the version of ESET you have. To start the process for renewal on our website at https://www.microcenter.com/site/stores/eset-renew.aspx  you will need the ESET username from your ESET program. 


 How to renew ESET for Windows 10
  • First, open the ESET program. Open your start menu and find ESET Security in the list of programs, if it is already open, skip to the next step.

  • Once ESET is open you can press CTRL + U at the same time to get details for technical support as shown in the picture.
  • Now copy the ESET username which starts with EAV-
  • If that doesn't work, select "Help and Support" in the left column, then click "Details for Technical Support"

  • Now that you have the Username, go to the website: https://www.microcenter.com/site/stores/eset-renew.aspx and enter the ESET username.
  • If you get this error (shown below) please try this ESET username, EAV-0129620978
