Hello,

Both Avast and ESET make very good products, so I'm unclear as to what you mean. "Beat" in terms of what? Threats detected? Memory usage? Revenue? Number of awards won? ESET does offer an online scanner and various utilities for free, but they are a business, and I would be surprised if they ever offered a free version of their core product offerings. Similarly, I would not expect to see a free version of Windows or Office from Microsoft, but alternatives to those exist, too.

Regards,

They still won't beat Avast until they release a free version

One thing I took notice to ESET, I can't find it cheaper anywhere.

Newegg and amazon are the same price as ESET's website. Might as well buy it from there.

Which would people say is better. Smart Security or just the anti virus?

Just the anti-virus, because Windows already comes with a very good firewall, Chrome and Firefox both include Google's Safe Browsing technology to detect phishing websites and your e-mail provider will almost certainly include anti-virus and anti-spam protection.

Hello,

I have occasionally seen ESET NOD32 Antivirus or ESET Smart Security discounted online at Newegg or in retail at Fry's Electronics stores, but those are pretty rare. On the other hand, a 30-day trial is available, so perhaps you can use it that way until you find a deal you are happy with.
