It provides comprehensive antivirus and antispyware protection without affecting your computer's performance. Using advanced ThreatSense® technology, ESET NOD32 Antivirus proactively protects you from new attacks, even during the critical first hours when other vendors' products aren't aware the attack even exists.

Or just use the Windows Firewall. :blink:

I really don't have that much faith in microsoft products, they tend to disappoint :rolleyes:

Their firewall is sufficient if you're behind a router and know how to use an AV and browse the web without catching nasties... :rolleyes:

You guys should forget this Eset has-been because it is now behind the main players Norton and Kaspersky...

Its detection rate has gone down from 97% to 93% and removal is only 83% successful according to about 4 reviews I have read...one being from PCMAG :rolleyes:

Oh and did you know it doesn't even detect keyloggers? they chose to not to have that option! how ridiculous is that? Also the program control is rubbish, it displays pop ups for just about everything, no wonder Eset have turned this feature off by default... :wacko:

They basically kept the engines from Eset 3xx and only made it take less resources according to what I have read, stick to Norton 90 days trial and on the 89th day install the other Norton lol Now you have very good firewall, best antivirus/antispyware, best program control (no pop ups!), best anti-phishing takes least resources... and all for FREE, what more could you want?

I use no firewalls and guess what? Never had a problem. I dunno what's with all the hype about software firewalls, they can be breached if the attacker is really determined. I remotely acquire files from people without their knowledge all the time and I can safely say that I would never waste my time trying to gain access to regular home users PC with dynamic IP cuz really they have nothing worth acquiring. Software firewalls just waste cpu cycles for paranoid people. I did try ESS just for the sake of testing it out but ESS needs work, especially when it comes to UPnP. Of all the software firewalls I have tried, Online Armour seems to have the most useful interface with relevant information and decent learning abilities to not harass you. People say outpost is good but is seems like harass-ware if you ask me and they do not have optimised code because their software is really big compared to other firewall software.

This is really the last straw for NOD32, if they don't get their head back in the game soon, I would reluctantly have to switch. Although I like that I could configure NOD32 from an xml file. I also could not turn off http scanning in norton 2009 without it harassing me to oblivion that my pc isn't protected, they don't even have faith in their own realtime scanner so they harass the daylights out of the user to enable the web scanner too. I don't really buy that whole 93% detection rate issue, I think ESET removes very ancient viruses to keep the definitions sizes down which is very stupid of them. This is partly why I am pissed at them. I was beta testing NOD32 and emailing the developers hoping to get them to implement white listing like NAV2009 to keep the definitions size down but they didn't think it was a problem.

They also refused to automatically develop a module that can be called for chat programs like msn messenger etc. Instead of focussing where the threats really originate from they decided to focus on useless email scanning for a multitude of email clients. Like which email server on the face of the planet does not have virus protection at the server level? Eset is implementing useless features just to have more selling points to the average (pc inept) user who would be easily convinced that they need client side email protection from viruses because the real time scanner won't pick it up anyway. So for me ESET has turned into every other AV software company, they prey on the lack of knowledge of average customers.

Oh yea, Thanks for this :dance2: . I'm excited about checking the changelog. I hope they atleast fixed the UPNP issues in ESS. EAV FTW!!!

gee I just lost the excitement after seeing the changelog, guess I won't waste time upgrading to this version since it fixes nothing useful to me.

Cheers.

Links or it didn't happen. :ph34r:

My license for NOD32 is running out end of this month, so have been actively looking for alternatives.

Your wish is my command... :lol:

PCMAG - Malware Detection 93%

PCMAG - Malware Removal 87%

PCMAG - Conclusion

PCMAG - Firewall and program control rubbish

ESET takes a different approach—and it's one that doesn't impress me. In its default configuration, ESET's firewall avoids program control pop-ups by leaving program control completely disabled.
Users accustomed to other personal firewalls may not understand that this part of ESET's firewall is turned off by default.

Ars Technica still says that NOD32 ranks #1 in performance followed by Symantec. I can't speak for the firewall as I don't use useless software firewalls, I leave that for the paranoid people. I would recommend NOD32 or NAV2009 but the problem is that fixes for NAV2009 are hard to find, I can't even find Box's fix 2.9A on his mediafire links anymore. They seem to be getting blacklisted fast. I still prefer fastest performance over a few missed viruses because when you think about it, no AV has 100% detection rate. Chances are even the one with the best detection rate will miss a virus so why sacrifice hours of slower pc performance for the one in a million chance your pc could be hit by a specific undetected virus. Use other on demand scanners for extra security and practice safe browsing, do this and you will probably never get pwnt by a virus in your lifetime. In my experience, the users that get the most viruses do so by visiting hoax free porn websites so clearly they bring forth destruction on themselves.

If however a person so wishes to endure excessively long boot times and slow performance for a whopping 1% more detection rate then that's their choice. My current vote goes to either EAV or NAV2009.
