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 . 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!
