Editors' Review

+

Eset NOD32's latest version is sleek and recommended. The company currently provides a 30-day, full-featured trial, with no third-party toolbars added on nor other strings attached.

Installation is clean and straightforward. So is the interface, which has improved greatly from its humble beginnings as separate scanners that once littered the desktop. Combined into one interface, NOD32 can be toggled between standard features and more advanced features. Although our scans were a little on the slow side, system-resource use was low, and the results good. NOD32 has consistently scored near the top of several independent antivirus testing organization ratings for finding the most malware.

Should you decide to uninstall, there is an uninstall option. However, upon reboot, we found residual system files and Registry settings that have to be deleted by hand.

"Fantastic Anti-Virus"

October 28, 2008  |  By laffin120

 |  Version: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 3.0.642

Pros

Negligible use of system resources. Effective product (catches more viruses than other software I've used). Easy to set up.

Cons

I have had some problems with compiling various .Net programs on some of my machines. Nothing major, but it can be an annoyance to have to turn it off and on every time I want to compile.

Summary

After countless issues with other anti-virus software, Eset was a god-send. Not a resource hog like many AV suites, it take care of my computers quietly and effectively

"State of the art product-The perfect solution"

October 28, 2008  |  By idris999

 |  Version: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 3.0.642

Pros

Fast updates,doesn't take much time to load when the OS boots,User friendly,fast scanning speed and most importantly less resources

Cons

Every time i try updating, it says the update is current. So i'm not sure what's the exact issue. More over its not a free ware.

Summary

Well i was looking for some thing that does not compromise with the sysetm performance and i guess this one does the job very well. Its very effective in detecting viruses.It also has the capacity to penetrate into the anals of your hard drive and detect viruses. So i would say its perfect.In short, you can really rely on this product and let it do its job. I would surely recommend anyone to go for it .

"The Best AV software I've ever used!!!"

October 28, 2008  |  By ace141

 |  Version: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 3.0.642

Pros

As everyone has said Nod32 is extremely light on CPU resource. Decent scanning speed and very friendly interface.

Cons

None whatsoever!!!

Summary

Nod32 is extremely light on resources which was my major compaint about other AV softwares I've used in the past. I've tried just about every AV software under the sun and they were all resource hogs.With Nod32 your computer is NOT slowed down and you don't even notice that it's installed on your computer. But you can rest assured that your computer is protected from the nasties.If you want peace of mind get Nod32, you won't regret it!!!
