Softonic review

A fast, high-performance antivirus

A reference that's virtually unchallenged in security software, ESET NOD32 Antivirus is one of the most reliable and efficient anti-viruses on the market. It's an interesting alternative to other high performing anti-virus programs such as Kaspersky or Norton

An effective antivirus but lacks advanced options

Its detection method of threats relies on both an advanced heuristic analysis (detecting and rejecting dangerous or unknown behaviors) and a database of virus signatures which is updated daily

In terms of removing detected threats, ESET NOD32 Antivirus is known for its effectiveness, but the process takes significantly longer than what is usually observed in most other anti-viruses. Another downside: the lack of additional features will frustrate more advanced users.

Review interface for ease and lightness

Long turned to by experienced users, NOD32 Antivirus has clarified and simplified its interface to reach a wider audience. The interface is now closer to what's offered by the majority of providers and gives easy access to scans, planning, and other tools. Definitely a successful makeover for ESET NOD32 Antivirus in our opinion! 

The software is characterized by not being too hard on system resources, especially given its surprising speed when it comes to detection of viruses, worms, Trojans and rootkits - not to mention the sheer number of these that ESET NOD32 Antivirus turns up.

An excellent antivirus

ESET NOD32 Antivirus has long been a reference point in the antivirus industry and it continues to improve with each new version. With an updated interface for greater ease of use, the software is lightweight and offers excellent virus detection rates. Truly indispensable in its class! If you are looking for a free alternative, we recommend you to try AVG AntiVirus Free.
