    To All,

    Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read this post and hopefully giving your opinion.

    Secondly, here is a little background about me and my internet habits:

    I was originally a Symantec user for several years. About a year and a half ago I decided to go with Kaspersky because it was recommended to me by a person I believe to be pretty knowledgeable. A few days ago my Kaspersky license expired and I felt compelled to see what other security software was available. I had heard of NOD32 in the past and a friend told me they currently use it and love it. He also told me it's security software for the "real user" haha :D . I decided to do some research and I found that ESET Smart Security 4 beat Kaspersky in many important tests. I assume these statistics are correct because I do not even know where to get the actual test results anyway. But I assume they are factual and I have decided to download Smart Security 4 and try the 30 day evaluation.

    I do not consider myself a risky user. I do download things from UseNet occasionally but overall my computer use is pretty low key. I use well known programs and I do not visit websites that are for "hackers" and stuff like that.

    My question to you all:

    I am a computer noob in the sense that I don't know much about setting up security software right out of the box. Is ESET software not good for a novice user like me? Is ESET meant to be used by a person like me?

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and leaving your response! :D :argh:

    If previously you've used Symantec and Kaspersky products then I can see no reason, given your experience, why you'd find it any more difficult to come to grips with ESS.

    The default settings are generally suitable for most 'NOOB' users ;) . Any problems with configuration ...then just ask here. :)

    well i consider my topic to be a bit more general than your specific question regarding default settings. So i don't really think it is the same topic.

    regardless, if you don't mind dude, i would prefer you just not ask in my thread. starting a thread does not cost any money or anything so why not just do me the favor and not ask in here.

    if you don't mind dude
