I just purchased ESET Smart Security and before I have had a great deal of respect for the NOD32 products and have always wanted to try it out but couldn't quite afford it. Now since I have the program I feel like I have a brand new computer. Thank you'll for such a great computer program. I'm not a computer guru but could someone please help me get started I would most appreciate it. I have entered my username and password into my ESET Smart Security program but do you also have to go online to activate the software?
