Pros

Secure Behavior: ESET NOD32 AV will verify to see that your Windows machine is up to date. In addition, it performs an initial full scan to cache and save information about your files in order to reduce redundant scans and speed up scan times in the future. "AV-Comparatives" also displayed strong scores -- including a 98.8 percent detection rate -- for ESET in its Sep. 2013 report.

Stable Design: NOD32 intuitively orders its core features by importance and usability, while still retaining secondary features like real-time monitoring and statistics tucked under Tools for power users. The Tools dashboard displays critical bits of info. like quarantine stats and scheduled tests next to their respective tools. It's not a flashy dashboard by any means, but it eliminates the need for users to constantly go in and out of menus for individual stats. It's an appreciated attention to detail for its users. The container, itself, is also relatively responsive.

Educational: ESET goes the extra mile to create a whole educational course on best safe Internet practices. Though it's online only, awareness and education is one of the most effective ways to prevent mistakes that may lead to data compromises.

Cons

Not Tablet friendly: Surface or touch-based laptop users probably won't find the interface too pleasing on the fingers.

Final Verdict

ESET doesn't try anything revolutionary in terms of overall format and design; since version 5, it's been critically acclaimed as light on resources, strong in protection -- and version 7 is no different. Despite what you may think about its conservative approach, ESET NOD32 Antivirus 7 still ranks higher in performance and protection than most average competitors. Though it may not be the highest, it does make up for it with an easier overall user experience without skimping on other important features. When it comes to safety in social media, we're always under the impression that user education and vigilant awareness of what and where you post trumps any automated tool, but it doesn't hurt to have a second opinion. ESET claims that the new built-in Specialized Cleaner should help remove more complex and stubborn infections, though we weren't able to test this just yet. If you're in the market for a new security program or possibly thinking of switching, then give ESET NOD32 AV a try.
