Hello folks, I'm new here and try to decide between ESET Smart Security and NOD32. And man, it's really really hard to do so. Everywhere I find reports and reviews that state that security suites produce more security holes than closing them and that Windows 7 firewall is more than enough. I use my PC especially for gaming so it is very important for me to keep everything performant. Another argument a lot of ppl use is that security suites slow your PC unnecessary when Windows 7 already has a good firewall within. I tried to configure Windows Firewall but it is very annoying and complicated when ESET firewall configuration is easy. Besides, I often experienced the case that I installed a game, played it online and when I closed it I saw the Windows firewall warning that a program is trying to connect to the Internet. But I used the game before allowing it without any problems. :/ I joined this board in the hope that I hear some more different thoughts that make my decision easier.
