ESET NOD32 Antivirus

esetESET NOD32 Antivirus earned high scores in our testing and in that of other independent testing in both virus removal and virus prevention. Add to that free U.S. based support, and ESET wins our Runner Up award. ESET NOD32 Antivirus is straightforward antivirus product that gets the job done.

Although we weren’t too fond of a couple previous versions, this year’s version proved much different for two big reasons: very high scores in our tests and those of independent testing results, and excellent U.S-based technical support. ESET scored nearly perfect in our tests and in those of other independent testing labs for real-time protection, resource usage, virus removal, and heuristic protection.

During our road tests, ESET NOD32 Antivirus scored nearly perfect scores in real-time antivirus protection. Spyware, phishing attempts, trojans, viruses, and other garden variety malware were stopped without any problem. Removal of deeply embedded malware on some of our test PCs sometimes required multiple reboots to ultimately fix, but in the end it cleaned up the mess, even in these cases. An, the good news is, if you ever have a similar problem after you’ve installed ESET, they, can help you clean it up for free. For maximum protection, there’s ESET Smart Security 8 which has a built-in personal firewall, but if basic protection is all you’re after, ESET proved its worth this year in virus, spyware, and general malware protection and removal.

ESET’s user interface is easy to use, clean, and modern looking. The left-hand navigation with easy to see icons makes getting around the software easy. On the down-side, the text is a little small and cramped, but it should be legible enough for most people. It’s a straightforward antivirus interface with no unnecessary bells and whistles. That’s what we like most. The last thing software should do is get in your way, and ESET never does that.

Because of ESET’s improved scanning, virus removal, real-time virus protection, and free technical support, they’ve comfortably earned our #2 slot, narrowly missing out on being their year’s Editors’ Choice
ESET has always been very good antivirus software, but there’ve been things in other products we liked better. Not this year. While the competitors do things to fall a few steps back, ESET has moved a few steps forward. All-in-all ESET NOD32 Antivirus is a great product to own this year. Well done.
