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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.
