Q: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 PCmag review

Excellent Malicious URL Blocking
I've been running my malicious URL blocking test since last November. I start with a feed of very new malicious URLs supplied by MRG-Effitas. I filter out those that don't point directly to malicious executables and then try launching each URL. Even though they're typically less than four hours old, many are already MIA. For the URLs that still work, I note whether the antivirus blocks access to the site entirely, blocks the malicious download, or does nothing.

avast! Free Antivirus 2014 was one of the first products to undergo this test, and for many, many months its blocking rate of 79 percent remained the top score. In the last couple weeks, that score has been thrashed repeatedly. Trend Micro Antivirus+ 2015 blocked 80 percent, a new high score. But just days later, McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2015 leapt into first place with 85 percent.

ESET blocked access to 32 percent of the URLs and prevented malware download for another 49 percent. Its total blocking percentage of 81 percent doesn't beat the record, but it's respectably in second place.

Average System Scan
ESET defaults to what it calls Smart Scan for malware. I had to dig deep to find a way to launch an in-depth scan. I thought the scan was going to be quick, because the progress bar filled almost to the end in just a few minutes. However, it sat there at almost-done for quite some time. In the end, it took 26 minutes, precisely the current average.

It did report a number of items that couldn't be cleaned automatically. I found this a bit odd, as they were just static malware samples. I went ahead and let it delete them.

A repeat scan took almost as long. ESET apparently doesn't exclude known safe files from future scans the way F-Secure Anti-Virus 2015 and Trend Micro do.

Malware Blocking Oddity
With its excellent lab results and impressive malicious URL blocking, I expected ESET to do well in my hands-on malware blocking test, too. The actual results surprised me.

The minimal access that occurs when Windows Explorer gets a file's attributes for display is enough to trigger ESET's on-access scanning. As soon as I opened my folder of samples, it rapidly wiped out 38 percent of them. That's rather low; Bitdefender eliminated 83 percent on sight. I figured that, like Norton, ESET focuses less on static file identification and more on catching malicious activity.

Indeed, when I tried launching the remaining samples, ESET did wipe out quite a few of them before they could even execute. It tried to block others after installation began, but in a number of cases the malware managed to install executable files despite ESET's efforts. With 81 percent detection and 7.3 of 10 possible points, it's almost at the bottom among products tested with this same set of samples.

ESET's very good lab test results do outweigh this disappointing score, to an extent. Still, it's puzzling. F-Secure managed 9.3 points in this same test, and Trend Micro took 8.7 points.

Poor Phishing Protection
ESET's impressive performance in my malicious URL blocking test let me to hope it would display equal facility at detecting and blocking phishing (fraudulent) URLs. Alas, it did no such thing.

To test phishing protection, I gather the very newest reported frauds from websites that collect such things, so new they haven't been verified as fraudulent. I set up five test systems, each with a different form of phishing protection. One uses the product under test, of course, and one uses antiphishing champion Norton. The other three rely on phishing protection built into Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. I launch each test URL simultaneously in all five, discarding any that don't fit the definition of phishing. If any of the five browsers returns an Internet error, I discard that URL also.

Bitdefender, Kaspersky, and Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2014) are among the few products that have outperformed Norton in this test. ESET is a different story. Its detection rate lagged 53 percentage points behind Norton, 49 percent behind Chrome, and 45 percent behind Firefox.

Yes, it did beat Internet Explorer by 13 percentage points, but that's nothing to write home about. In fact, in 12 percent of the cases, ESET missed a fraudulent site that all four of the others caught. Don't turn off your browser's phishing protection!

Ups and Downs
ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 gets generally excellent marks from the independent testing labs, and it scored very well in my malicious URL blocking test. However, in my hands-on malware blocking test it came in at the bottom, and it proved ineffective in my antiphishing test. It does offer a number of bonus security features, but the majority of these aren't accessible to the non-techie user.

It's a decent product, but I'd recommend sticking with one of our Editors' Choice antivirus products: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015, Kaspersky Anti-Virus (2015), or Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2014).

The Good
The application worked smoothly on Windows 8.1 Pro during our evaluation, without hanging, crashing or popping up error messages. It contains help documentation and it is wrapped in a familiar, user-friendly interface.

It integrates a real-time guard, antivirus and antispyware, different scan modes, HIPS, enhanced exploit blocker, a self-defense mechanism against hijackers, password protection, web and email protection, along with scheduled tasks, notifications control and log files, among its notable features.

Advanced settings have the possibility to configure a rich range of scanning options to personalize the real-time guard and manual scan mode.

The Bad
We expected a better malware detection ratio from this particular program.

The Truth
With all things considered, the new version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus does not bring noteworthy changes as far as malware detection ratio is concerned. However, it brings powerful new features to the table to help users successfully fight off web-based attacks. Additional features can be explored in ESET Smart Security.

Shared Antivirus
Antivirus protection in this suite is precisely the same as what you get with ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8, so I'll just summarize here. Read the antivirus review for full details.

ESET's technology gets high marks from almost all of the independent labs. It's one of just a handful that participated in all 12 of the last 12 tests by Virus Bulletin and received VB100 certification every time. It got the top rating in tests by AV-Comparatives and Dennis Technology Labs. Only AV-Test Institute gave it a so-so rating.

ESET didn't fare nearly as well in my own hands-on malware blocking test. I run this test mostly to get real-world experience of how each product handles malware attack, but I still like to see a good score. ESET scored 7.3 of 10 possible points, almost the lowest among products tested with my current sample set.

On the other hand, it did an extremely good job of blocking downloads from newly-discovered malicious URLs. It blocked 81 percent of the downloads, some by blocking all access to the URL and others by halting the download. With 85 percent blocking, McAfee Internet Security 2015 is the only product that's done better.

Please note that this program is a pre-release beta version of a product and not completely tested to ensure its stability or reliability.What is beta software?After an initial round of in-house testing, software publishers often release new programs to be tested by the public. These pre-release versions are called beta software, usually denoted by a "b" in the version number, e.g., Netscape Navigator 2.0b5. Since the publisher couldn't possibly test the software under all possible conditions, it is reasonable to expect that wider use of the software may uncover problems that were not discovered during in-house testing. The publisher expects to be notified when users find such problems so that the program can be fixed before its official release.In general, you should expect to run into bugs whenever using any piece of beta software. These bugs may range in severity from minor features that don't work to problems that cause your computer to crash. You should decide whether the benefit of new features in a beta program outweighs the risk of program instability before choosing to use a piece of beta software. You should also be aware that UITS will not have thoroughly tested beta software, nor will the software be guaranteed by its maker, so you should not expect the same level of support as you would receive for an official release version of the program.The goal of a beta program is to collect information regarding the performance, quality, stability, and fu...

A:Buy ESET NOD32 Antivirus OR ESET Multi-Device Security Pack ?

1) Not sure on this, but I believe you can activate it few mths later. Best is refer to their terms and conditions before making purchase. Sometimes they mention when is the due date for activation.

2) Upon purchase, you only have a single key that activate 3 device. There is no separate license key for each device. Activation would mean the same start date applied to all 3 devices.

3) Same as Q1.

4) As long as you do not exceed more than 3 devices using the same license key (in this case is ESET pack 3 User), there is no need to uninstall.

5) ESET Customer Care

Hope that helps.
Cheers!

Decent Malware Blocking
In my own hands-on malware blocking test, Comodo scored 8.3 points out of a possible 10. That puts it on par with McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2015 and just a hair behind Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015. Panda Free Antivirus 2015 earned 8.0 points in this test. However, Panda received excellent ratings from many of the labs, and I weight those scores higher than my own simple hands-on testing. Quite a few products, Avast Free Antivirus 2015among them, have detected all the tweaked samples.

Interestingly, all of Comodo's malware detection occurred the instant I opened my folder of samples. It quickly and silently wiped out 83 percent of the samples, without bothering to announce what it had done. When I launched the samples that survived the initial massacre, it didn't actively block any of them.

I also exposed Comodo to a folder containing hand-modified versions of the same malware samples. I tweaked some non-executable bytes in each sample, and also changed each file's name and size. I was quite surprised to find that my simple tweaking prevented Comodo's signature-based detection system from recognizing more than half of the samples. This might suggest that its signatures need to be more open-ended and less restrictive.

Poor Blocking of Malicious URLs

During a full antivirus scan, G Data reports both time elapsed and time remaining. At one point, the sum of those two times exceeded 80 minutes. However, the scan actually completed in 48 minutes. That's a good bit longer than the current average of 28 minutes to scan a clean system. Some antivirus products speed subsequent scans by skipping known safe files. Comodo Antivirus 8, for example, re-scanned my test system in less than two minutes. Not G Data; a repeat scan took just as long.

Good Malware Blocking
When I exposed G Data to a folder containing my current collection of malware samples, it wiped out most of them right away, and eliminated a few more when I tried to launch them. One way or another, G Data detected 93 percent of the samples and scored 9.3 of 10 possible points. Few products have scored better in this test, though Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2015) did manage a perfect 10.

As always, I also checked the product's reaction to a folder containing modified versions of the same samples. Each of the modified samples has a different filename and file size from the original, and a few non-executable bytes are also different. G Data didn't immediately recognize 22 percent of the samples whose originals were wiped out on sight. Interestingly, it did recognize several modified files whose originals weren't caught until I tried to launch them. Clearly there are multiple levels of protection going on here.

Malicious URL Blocking
Thanks to a real-time feed supplied by MRG-Effitas, I have access to a continually updated list of malicious URLs. I use these to check how each antivirus product handles extremely new threats. Does it block access to the URL, wipe out the downloaded malware, or just sit there doing nothing?

Bitdefender completely blocked access to 18 percent of the live malicious URLs I used for testing, but didn't wipe out any of the downloads that got through. It might well have caught those on launch, but that's not what this test measures. I've run two dozen products through this test so far, each with URLs no more than four hours old. The average protection rate is 33 percent, almost twice what Bitdefender managed. I'll be interested to see how Norton AntiVirus (2014) and Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2014) do when it's their turn for this test.

Hands-On Testing
In addition to checking scores with the major testing labs, I put each antivirus through hands-on testing. I start by opening a folder containing a collection of malware samples. The simple access that occurs when Windows Explorer gets file information for display was enough to trigger AVG's real-time protection. It detected 72 percent of the samples on sight and offered to remove them.

Next, I launched the samples that weren't wiped out immediately. Overall, AVG detected 79 percent of these samples and earned 7.8 of 10 possible points. That's definitely on the low side, but I give significantly more weight to the independent lab tests. My own malware-blocking test serves mostly to give me hands-on experience with each product's way of handling real-time protection.

One feature of AVG's Web TuneUp browser extension is Site Safety, which promises to warn you before you visit a "risky or dangerous website." Apparently Site Safety doesn't apply to URLs that point directly to malware programs; Site Safety didn't kick in at all during my malicious URL blocking test. However, of the 100-odd newly reported malicious URLs I tried, the real-time protection component wiped out 54 percent. That's better than the current average of 41 percent.

McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2015 holds the top score in this test, with 85 percent of the URLs blocked. Avast managed a respectable 72 percent.

So-so Malware Blocking
Last year Avira earned an impressive score in my hands-on malware blocking test, with 97 percent detection and 9.7 of 10 possible points. Not this year.

When I opened a folder containing my current collection of malware samples, Avira wiped out 72 percent immediately. That's good, but Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 at BitDefender, F-Secure Anti-Virus 2015, and ThreatTrack Vipre Antivirus 2015 all managed 83 percent.

I also tested Avira using hand-modified versions of the same sample set. For each file, I changed the name, appended nulls to change the file size, and tweaked some non-executable characters. Avira missed three of the tweaked files. However, it detected another two tweaked files whose originals it missed. I can't explain that.

After launching all of the remaining samples, I evaluated how well Avira handled them. Overall, it detected 76 percent of the malware samples and scored 7.4 points, quite a drop from last year.

Good Malicious URL Blocking
In the real world, you're more likely to encounter a brand-new malware attack via a malicious or compromised website, so I test for that ability as well. I start with a feed of newly-discovered malicious URLs supplied by MRG-Effitas. After filtering out those that don't point directly to malicious executables, I try loading each one in a browser to see what (if anything) the antivirus will do.

Real-time Protection
For some antivirus products, the minimal file access that occurs when Windows Explorer displays the filename is sufficient to trigger real-time protection. Avast waits until just before a program executes to run a real-time scan. In testing, it wiped out almost 80 percent of my malware samples immediately on launch.

Avast detected most of the remaining samples at some point as they attempted to install and run. In a couple of cases, it activated a powerful analysis tool called DeepScan. Avast also invoked DeepScan to make sure that a couple of my malware-testing programs weren't themselves malicious.

In one case, fortunately the last sample I tested, Avast requested a boot time scan for complete cleanup. That scan took almost an hour, and required my attention every so often to make decisions about the disposition of particular malware traces. You can launch a boot time scan at will, if you suspect the regular scan has missed something.

One way or another, Avast detected 93 percent of my samples, the same asF-Secure Anti-Virus 2015. However, because Avast allowed installation of some executable malware traces, its final score came out to 9.0 points, while F-Secure managed 9.3. The absolute winner among products tested with this sample set is Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2015), which earned 10 of 10 possible points.

Effective Malware Blocking
Panda scored very well in my hands-on malware blocking test. When I opened a folder containing my current malware sample collection, it didn't do anything immediately. That's because Panda waits for a significant event like file creation or modification; it doesn't scan just because a process accessed the file. When I copies the collection to another folder, Panda got to work, quickly wiping out 86 percent of the samples.

It also caught some of the remaining samples when I launched them. Overall, it detected 89 percent of the samples and earned 8.8 points, the same as Kaspersky. Among products tested with this same collection, Trend Micro has the best scores, with 93 percent detection and 9.1 points.

Results from tests with my previous malware collection aren't directly comparable, of course, but you have to appreciate what Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2015) did with that bunch. It detected 100 percent of the samples and earned a perfect 10 points.

My malicious URL blocking test doesn't rely on a pre-set collection of samples. Rather, I take the very newest list of malicious URLs supplied by MRG-Effitas and attempt to download real-world malware samples. The antivirus gets credit for blocking access to the URL or for wiping out the file during or immediately after the download. I keep at this test until I have results for 100 very new malicious URLs.

As I proceeded with the test, Panda's stats stayed remarkably... Read more

Hands-On Testing
To get a feel for the program's protection, I challenged it with my collection of malware samples. Its real-time protection kicked in the moment I opened the sample folder, quickly eliminating 66 percent of the samples. Note, though, that F-Secure Anti-Virus 2015 wiped out 83 percent of those same samples on sight.

Next, I launched the samples that survived the initial massacre. In several cases it reported the sample or one of its components as suspicious, in some cases with the warning "Please do not open this file unless you trust its source." That seems a bit weak to me?a user could accidentally choose to run malware detected in this way. I made sure to avoid that error.

With 89 percent detection and 8.7 points overall, Trend Micro is just behind F-Secure among products tested with this same malware collection. Note, though, that I give greater weight to ratings from the independent labs than to my simple hands-on test.

Trend Micro's Smart Protection Network gathers telemetry from millions of computers. Among other things, it identifies malware-hosting websites, and instructs your local antivirus to prevent access to those sites. Based on my testing, it really works. The test starts with a feed of very new malicious URLs supplied by MRG-Effitas. I simply launch each URL and note whether the product blocks URL access, eliminates the download, or does nothing.

Very Good Malware Blocking
As with SuperAntiSpyware Professional 6.0, Panda's on-access scanning doesn't spring into action until you attempt to execute a file. Unlike SuperAntiSpyware, Panda did a good job blocking malware at launch. It deleted three quarters of the samples before they could execute.

A few of the samples did manage to launch; Panda caught some of those later in the process. Its detection rate of 86 percent is tied with Bitdefender for the best detection rate among products tested with my current sample set. Panda's overall score of 8.0 can't beat Bitdefender's 8.3 points, but it's better than the rest of the current group, includingKaspersky Anti-Virus (2015)'s 7.9 points.

Panda Free Antivirus 2015 Malware Blocking Chart

You'll note in the chart that AVG AntiVirus FREE 2014 and various others tested with my previous malware collection made a significantly better showing. That was a different set of samples, though, and the independent testing labs give very good scores to Panda, Kaspersky, and Bitdefender.

As part of my testing, I installed about 20 PCMag utilities. Panda's behavior-based malware detection identified a temporary file created by one of them as malicious, though when I looked at the detailed log it merely said "suspicious." I submitted the file to VirusTotal, to be sure it wasn't actually infected. All of the 53 antivirus engines hosted on VirusTotal gave it a clean bill of health... Read more

New version of ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+ was tested by pcmag.com.

Results: Editor rating: excellent
Pros:
Tough, effective two-way firewall. Antivirus protection licensed from Kaspersky. Free. Several useful bonus features.

Cons
Hardly any results from independent testing labs. Doesn't include every feature of Kaspersky antivirus. No phishing protection. Behavioral detection flagged both good and bad programs.

Bottom Line
ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+ combines a top-notch firewall with antivirus protection licensed from award-winning Kaspersky. This free program can be a good choice if you don't want a full-scale security suite.

Hello everyone. I've always been using ESET. Now I just got a 180-day key from a Giveaway for Webroot Antivirus. I just installed it in order to give it a try. Well, performance is much more better than ESET (few MB compared to 120, kind of). What's your opinion about that?.
I do have a Surface pro 4, i5, 8GB RAM. I know it would bear ESET, but I'm actually intreseted in performance - it's still a tablet actually. Do you have some On-Demand scanners that may repair to the cloud-engine only? thanks in advance.

Hi the geekfreak ESET have excellent products so yes, ESET Nod32 Antivirus is a really good choice. Another popular Antivirus/Antimalware product (2 in 1) is Emsisoft Anti-Malware or Emsisoft Internet Security. Both ESET and Emsisoft are strong on PUPs detections as well, which becomes more and more frequent now a day and you might end up with PUP more often than malware, so having Emsisoft or ESET installed on your system will help a lot. You could even install the free version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware as a on-demand scanner if you end up going with ESET Nod32.quietman wrote a really good article on choosing an Antivirus product that is suit for you and your system, I suggest you to give it a read to make sure that you make an enlighten solution when will come the choice to choose the Antivirus you want to use http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/407147/answers-to-common-security-questions-best-practices/#entry2316629We also have Emsisoft Staff members on BleepingComputer that can answer your questions on their products if you need, simply ask

Since sending my computer to the shop to b cleaned out because of bugs: I have been having lots of problems with my windows XP ever since this computer guy installed ESET NOD32 antivirus instead of what I wanted: AVG free antivirus. My internet explorer developed bugs, and my outlook express windows refused to work among other things like my computer not opening at all. I have had to bring my computer back to him 3 times now, because every time I bring it home it doesn't work.

Since then I have tried to re-install AVG free antivirus as the AVERAGE best antivirus on the moarket... but going to Downloads,com... I couldn't find it!

Apparently every single thing that was once free on the internet like VG antivius... has been taken off the internet? If there still is such a thing a AVG free antivirus... where is it, and where can I download it? And if anyone knows anything about this Node antivirus: please give me your assessment.

NODE comes with a spyware attachment called 'scan spyware'... Before, I used the free Ad-Aware and free Spybot programs and they worked fine...

I am VERY suspicious of these 2 antivrus and anti-spyware programs that this guy put into my computer: because it has been acting up like crazy ever since they were installed. The only trouble is... I can't find the FREE ad-aware program or the free spybot program anymore on the internet... What has been happening this last year? Has everybody in the world removed their free downloads...

Multiple anti-virus programs will fight with each and bog down a computer and make it more susceptible to infection.

I am guessing it is the password given along with the trial username but I do not have it. I do not even remember signing up with an email to receive the password because that would have at least given me a chance to recover it.

So how do I uninstall this program now? Please help...
