Editors' Review


ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 includes essentials like scheduling, quarantine, logs, and statistics, as well as anti-phishing and anti-spyware features, portable device protection, gamer mode, and extensive help and support options.


System snapshots: The ESET SysInspector monitors system activity for possible threats and takes system status snapshots for later reference.

Social media protection: The new ESET Social Media Scanner protects Facebook and Twitter accounts and threads.

Rescue CD: ESET SysRescue can create a bootable CD that can often help you start your PC when something's gone terribly wrong.

Advanced Setup: While NOD32 Antivirus 8 is easy to use by design, many configuration options can be changed on the Advanced Setup page, including Web and email, user interface, and real-time and system scan options like exclusions and idle-state scanning.


Subscription: Like many premium antivirus tools, you basically have to buy NOD32 Antivirus 8 over and over again every year, though 2-for-1 deals aren't uncommon. It's cheap compared to a dead PC, but similar freeware can do the job, too.

Bottom Line

With a good mix of tools, extras, and value, ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 doesn't so much stand out from the crowd as exemplify it. It's a worthy contender among affordable premium antivirus solutions.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 8.0.304.0.

"Did NOT find HIGH Risk Virus"

November 06, 2014

 |  Version: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 7 (64-bit) 7.0.317.4


Did not slow my PC down and the firewall stopped a few unwanted adware/viruses getting through


I thought I was safe with this product as it blocked a few things with its firewall but only detected 1 item in its daily virus scan in a month, so I thought all was good until I noticed my PC slow down and acting strange so I uninstalled it and tried Avast. It scanned and found the SweetOrange which is a very risky virus. Avast had to reboot my PC and remove The Compression Bomb , lucky before it opened and wrecked my PC altogether. Thanks a lot Eset! Never again.

* Extreme effective again detection
* Updates easy and not complex
* Have lot of option to custom secure
* Even turn off if detect threat a box warning appear
* Not so heavy like 6 even eay almost 99mb of ram
* support are good
* Love information well organizade in site like encyclopaedia and maps virus.


* Annoying all time the game mode are disable in games you dont wish.
* Complex and not so easy like other anti-virus to create a cd/pen-boot rescue.
* Not much promos


In fact for me is tha best pay anti virus you can have, if not use the avira!
Very security and have lot of options u can free configure, so if you wish buy anti virus this is one you don't regret buy it!

"Excellent product"

November 24, 2012  |  By BobTN304

 |  Version: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5 (64-bit)


Very effective.


A little complicated setting up exceptions but eset customer service is good.


I don't know what the 1 star rater's problem was. I have never had any problem updating Eset Nod32.

I had a problem with a virus that none of the free antivirus programs,Macafee or Norton could fix. Eset fixed it.

"downloading suck. locked me out of the web."

November 04, 2012  |  By oneponycar

 |  Version: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5 (64-bit) 5.2.9


what pros? works against user.


First the download sucks. It damaged the older version. Messed with my Internet connection so I could not get on line. Then I had to uninstall it. Once I was able to get the newer one installed it locked me out of all my web sites. I try to find help on the Eset page but navigating that mess just made me madder.


Don't fix it if it's not broken. Adding bells and buzzers just makes this not work. The older one worked just like it should and never left me crazy.
