Im going to buy one of these but which one?
if you want firewall and antispam then choose ESS
if you donot want firewall and antispam or install other firewall like comodo then choose EAV
Both Are Using Same Engine
I like to use all in one security.So ill give ESS a try.
Nothing compares to ESET,S security software
That's really not indisputable - ESS has a long way to go.
As for EAV v/s ESS, it boils down to personal preferences - generally speaking, Noobs would jump for ESS while Advanced Users would like to opt for EAV combined with standlone firewall, anti-spyware & anti-SPAM. However, V3 seems to have forced many to travel the ESS route.
Waal, the Naturally Ornery Old Bull Shooter installed ESS and well pleased I did.
One of the criticisms I've read online: There was a leaktest of the firewall, with other modules disabled, and it flunked. Eset told the testers that it worked as a unit. I downloaded or tried to download the leaktests; some ESS stopped in the download (Web access protection module.), the others when I moved them, tried to open the zip they were in, or tried to run (Antivirus and antispyware's Real-time file system protection). It is a spurious test of ESS to make the rule that the other modules must be off and only the firewall on. Eset says that Eset Smart Security is not really a suite; it is too well integrated, one really.
Here is a list of the modules in ESS. Which is better to stomp on which malware?
Antivirus and antispyware protection
Real-time file system protection
Web access protection
Newwork traffic filtering
I figure ifn it can't get in then it can't get out. A little analysis please instead of playing nomenclature and taxonomy of insults, even of the genera.
Hot damn, you talk purdee, No Obvious Oafish Boobs Say.
Download the manual before you try it or buy it. Ask some folk who have it.
I just wanted to add that I originally bought ESS and, after a couple of weeks of use, decided that I just wanted to go with EAV. I emailed ESET Customer Care, or actually opened a case online as I recall, and asked them if my ESS license would allow me to download, install, and use EAV instead (both as a technical matter and a legal one). They replied as follows:
So, if you have any indecision at all... and don't mind paying just a little more... buy ESS. If you decide you don't like it all that well, you can always roll back to EAV like I did.
Boobs (perhaps you didn't post in English)
The question is, if viruses that connect to the internet are stopped by the antivirus, then why do we need ESET's firewall? Going by ESET's own argument, it sounds to me like NOD32 3.0 and a router or Windows Firewall would be enough.
