    Why doesn't ESET offer a free home version like the rest of some of the more popular antivirus companies?

    Avast, Avira, Comodo, Microsoft Security Essentials and AVG offer free home editions of there products at no cost to the consumer. My question is, why would people continue to pay for antivirus protection when they don't have to! There are better alternatives out there absolutely free!

    I used Nod32 for many years until I realized I didn't have to actually pay money to get the protection I needed when the same protection is offered for free.

    Please think about joining the rest and offering a free home solution. If you truly care about your customers you will stop charging them for it!!

    Regards

    so what would Eset gain by competing providing free version as the free ones are already better as you exclaimed?

    Would Norton, McAfee, Sophos, Kaspersky also gain reputation in similar way? Eset should consider doing it for sure then

    It's not a debate. What I posted is in the my best intentions and interest of some users here and a valid question. Your Ignorance only shows your misconception of my original statement to begin with.

    I hope that clears things up for you better now. :D

    If you are happy with a better free A-V, terrific! There's no reason to bash Cudni.

    Personally, I have paid subscriptions of NOD32 as the anti-virus on my boxes. It is updated several times a day, has a small footprint, and does a very good job. It costs me about 30 Grande Starbucks Pike Place regular black coffees for two years of protection, a very reasonable price IMO.

    YMMV :)

    @winchester73,

    ~Personal comments removed. See the Terms Of Service for using these forums.~ Iv'e said what I had to say in my first post and I will leave it at that.

    @cudni,

    I apologize if I came off rude to you and I'm not trying to stir up a commotion here. I read your link as well and see I'm not the only one who feels this way although there were a great n umber of mixed feelings in that thread.

    Good day :blink:
