    Eset nod32


    Hi all... Anyone on here using ESET NOD32 Antivirus? (latest version 7) I am trying it out at the moment on my laptop, it seems nice so far, the only downside is that startup is a little slow but I think thats due to the syncing with my school's network (Office 365/SkyDrive Pro) that goes on at startup, not NOD32 itself. I also have at the moment a Norton 360 subscription for 3 PCs (all licenses are in use) which is expiring in about a month or so, so I will be deciding to renew with ESET or Norton... ESET is alot cheaper and a friend has recommended it, and it is also used at my school, so I wanted to see what you guys think. I need a paid A/V as I find the free ones a pain in the arse with constantly bugging me to buy the pro versions, etc, but otherwise they are very good. And no I won't use MSE, it has let more viruses through than I can count!

    I've been using it for years (since ver 4) and it has been working fine for me. It feels light, I haven't been infected, and it doesn't get in the way. I'm happy...

    Awesome thanks! I have found Norton to be good, but very expensive, and a resource hog compared to ESET. And with ESET at $89.99 for 2 years and 3 PCs i'm tempted... One question, if you have been buying it online, what does the price eventually come to with tax and all. I ask because I don't have a credit card so I have to buy a prepaid visa to buy it, so gotta make sure I have enough on the card.
    Thanks

    Oh yeah I only ever run one AV at a time. Funnily I used to run avast and was tired of everyday seeing "Seasonal sale! Upgrade to Avast! Internet Security and recieve 50% off" or something to that effect. Which is why I switched to paid AV. Easier to "set it and forget it" with paid options.

    I don't recall the price/tax at the moment, I buy the 1 year, 3 PC license.

    Ah. Why the one year if you have been ESET for a while ? I was gonna go 2 year as its cheaper in the long run, and less messing with as I will be using one of the licenses on my grandmothers computer, and she lives back home in Malta so kind of hard to change things around, although she has teamviewer.

    Good question! I guess I'm afraid of commitment :-)
