    I know that Avira Premium has 'Webguard' and it's saved my bacon a few times.

    Does ESET or Kaspersky also have a feature like 'webguard'? :doubt:

    NOD32 does have a HTTP scanner, no idea about KAV/KIS (way too heavy and intrusive for me). Seeing your signature though, I wonder why don't you check yourself. :p

    i think all major anti virus right now includes web scanner, for eset its included in their realtime scan which is the threatsense technology, for avg its web shield, also for avast. kaspersky has it also but i dont know what its called (proactive defense)?

    even norton, trend and mcaffe.

    :D Thing is. I know my licensed products quite well. But with all the hooplah about Avira's Webguard, I was wondering if Avira somehow had a superious 'webguard' technology or if I just got confused by fanboy'ism and marketing. ;)

    Your original post asked if there's a web scanner feature in ESET NOD32 and Kaspersky Antivirus, not whether Avira's webguard is superior.

    Semantics. To-mah-toe / To-meh-to.

    Perhaps I wasn't totally clear but I have explained my reasons for asking.

    Since the new question now appears to be, "Which AV has a better web guard?", we'll be closing this thread per the usual policy. As to the original question actually asked, yes, all three mentioned AV products do have some type of similar web access protection capabilities - i.e. a webguard.
