I haven't had a virus so I can't speak to its effectiveness, but it is painless to use. It installed quickly, updated to the latest virus signatures within a minute or two and generally doesn't bother me.
For anyone tired of the huge, slow offerings from competitors, give this a shot.
There is also a version which includes a firewall and spam filter if you need such things.
I actually did a comparison of system resources of this Antivirus compared to several others and it is by far the least consuming of RAM memory. When you do CTRL + ALT + DELETE in Windows you'll see a green box show up next to your clock area on the right hand side. This ESET NOD32 program hardly uses any system resources at all. My computer has never performed better.
The installation is quick, small and very simple. Updates of virus definitions are done automatically in the background and are a breeze.
Do yourself a favor and take a break from the Norton or McAfee which
significantly slow down your machine.
Excellent product that deserves an award.
Another thing to note is that ESET's costumer service is top of the line. Unlike other major Anti-Virus Software providers, ESET's Customer and technical support services are based in North America. On top of that they have really good response times to questions. When I sent an e-mail asking if NOD32 would work on my x64 bit Machine, About 15 minutes later I got a phone call from one of their representatives saying it would work, and if I would like, they would talk me through their website to purchase the correct version.
If you have a gaming machine, or any other multi-media machine, it is important to not have any programs running in the background that impact performance. NOD32 runs as though it is not even there. Also, on the subject over all performance, if your like me, you have massive amounts of stuff on your Hard drives. In my experience, if you do an entire system scan, it goes by really fast compared to Software such as Norton. I have about 400 gigs of stuff on my hard drive, and an entire scan only takes about an hour and a half.
NOD32 also updates every day. So when ever there is some kind of viral outbreak, NOD32 is quick to respond.
The Only complaint I have, is the fact that is has a fairly complex user interface.Read more ›
I could go through and list all the reasons this AV program is superior to all the rest, but it's pretty much been covered by the other reviewers.
The one aspect I like about most this program over all the others, is that it's got an extremely small system footprint.
I've been supporting NOD32 for about 3 years now, and have gotten my family and friends to use it too. So far, no one has gotten a virus.
- Scans are quick
- Uses few systems resources while in the background
- Profiles are updated very often by vendor
- I've had no virus problems while running this software
- No software tentacles, unlike antivirus "big names"
- Simple configuration is easy, complex configuration is buried in a menu tree
