    Within the context of VB100... in real world usage it is the only product I have ever used that let in something it should not have.

    They just brag too much around VB100 scores. In all the other tests it is more or less mediocre since the NOD32 v2.0. That one was pretty impressive but competition got ahead of them really...

    the average person will not know who vb100 is and second will read this as it will be 100% detection no matter what

    The VB100 tests are about as irrelevant in today's world as tests can get. However, given how poorly ESET does in tests that do matter, its no wonder that they have to tout the VB100 tests.

    Give me back my NOD 2.7 days !!!:D

    all of that is cool, and i respect it. My 2 favs are Eset and Webroot, both of which people claim to be weak on detection, but for me, both have been great and have the least impact on my computers. If they fail me, I bail.:argh:

    Development is slow and poor: or has anyone seen the long promised default rule sets in Eset v5 so called hips...? But good to see that marketing is still alive. Priorities have to be set, yeah.

    I believe they are very glad about the old styled vb100, cause in other tests from respected test organisations ESET has not been among the top players for a long time.

    Maybe with such advertisings they find some people who believe and buy.

    Good Evening ! Have been using the Dynamic Duo...Eset S.S.5 and WSA Essentials for the last couple of weeks...with backup of Hitman Pro or MBAM Pro...both on demand. Real world I'm a big fan of simplicity...and lack of bloat and bulk. Both apps serve my purpose...and will continue so into the future. Sincerely...Securon

    Eset (Nod32) is a product which I ALWAYS stayed away from.

    Very poor malware detection :cautious:

    Well siljaline uses it and he nobodys fool. Check his profile. So the product can't be as bad as represented here.

    I don't use ANY ESET product anymore after seeing online test results. I would rather use a free AV than use an ESET product. they are that bad now after being the kings for many years in the past

    That's what happens to a perfect product when you just focus on marketing and to spread that robot everywhere rather than focus on getting better programmers to fight the new viruses. ESET is only interested in marketing now and nothing more

    I agree with you. I like ESET because it is simple, doesn't hog my computer and plays nice with other software. So far it never let me down.

    However, the add can be misleading and can make people think that Nod can catch all malware.

    Just a note, advertisement is in short "ad" and not "add". "Add" means to sum up some value or to join some stuff together. ~Phrase removed~ :p
