Maximum PC had a crunch test of the latest popular AV suites, and ESET came out on top, followed by MSE. Since I'm a cheapskate, I prefer MSE, but it's still comforting to know ESET hasn't dropped the ball.


ESET licenses by the product and not by a specific version, so you can use your license to download ESET Smart Security 3.0, 4.0 or 4.2.

"ESET NOD32 Antivirus detects and disables both known and unknown viruses, trojans, worms, adware, spyware, rootkits and other Internet threats."

If ESET NOD32 doesn't recognize if a file is for example a worm, how is it able to detect it and even disable it?

The idea, in a nutshell, is that malware "kits" are being sold by blackhat groups. These kits contain everything needed to make a new variant of a particular piece of malware. Of course, it is a variant and much of the virus code should be the same. NOD32 (and some other antiviruses) are using a heuristics scanner that finds things that "sort of" matches the stuff it has in it's signature database.

It doesn't help if you come across something totally new though, or something that has been sufficiently modified to no longer resemble the source virus.
