Summary: This was a fantastic deal! too bad there isn't an actual copy of the latest version on the cd. I could have used that for offline machines. Just a waste of plastic. otherwise, this is a great product and has kept me virus free for years.
Summary: I've been using ESET's NOD32 (specifically NOD32, not Smart Security) for 14+ years. I figure eventually they'll change the name to NOD64???? LOL! I had tried a few other pay AV programs when my NOD subscription ran out just because of the price, but after that I swore to myself that I'll just keep...
Pros: Low overhead, extremely accurate with warnings, have never gotten a virus while using NOD32, excellent customer service!
Cons: The price if you were to buy it when it's not discounted, otherwise NO cons.
Summary: I'm going mack to AVG free and Malwarebytes
Pros: Good AV engine not too intrusive
Cons: To do a Windows system restore you have to uninstall the product. You have to completely uninstall it and scrub it from your registry. This is a major pain in the neck. If you just "temporarily disable" NOD32 it comes back to life when Windows restarts. So it prevents Windows from completing the ...
Summary: Haven't had a chance to try any Steam games yet while using this, but after reading some of the other comments I'm now very leery of this potential issue. With Steam's huge installed userbase, it seems inexcusable to not have corrected this issue long ago.
Pros: The program appears to be very lightweight and unobtrusive.
Cons: The CD you're purchasing is nothing more than an auto-run that pulls up websites to then go out and download the actual product. While I appreciate wanting to deliver the most up-to-date product possible, there are several cases where I want to be able to install and use at least a base product i...
Summary: Just stay off torrent sites and don't download anything that tells you that you have a virus. Because that's how you get them- by clicking on software on sites offering free scanning, tuning, and tweaking... if you didn't ask for it, reject it- otherwise, you're just asking for it.
Pros: Background process invisible comes into play only when you're about to go somewhere questionable or do something stupid
Cons: One of the systems I put it on bluescreens all the time as a direct result of its installation.
Summary: I have been doing tech work on computers since windows 3.1 and only consider myself avg. To be 4 and 5 level you better have experience and knowledge in advance server applications, advance networking (enterprise level) and be able to do core OS level of service.
Pros: ESET has very good products. I have been using it and recommending it for several years. It much lighter on system resources then most other anti-virus programs out there. It also works very well with Malwarebytes Pro if you have it installed. They complement each other very well. Yes you can ins...
