ESET NOD32 Antivirus blocked 99 percent of more than 300 malware samples we used to test antivirus software. It also scored above average in other independent lab tests, making it a good solution for protecting your Windows computer or laptop. ESET recognizes viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, rootkits ransomware and phishing schemes, and it blocks you from visiting sites that are known to have malware hidden on them.
In our testing, ESET NOD32 was probably the easiest program to download, install and use. When we pressed the download link, the program installed itself and immediately began scanning our system for any threats. We didn’t have to manually set up anything. It blocked malicious sites and displayed in-browser warning messages without having to enable any browser extensions. When we were ready to schedule scans and set up custom scans, ESET was so well laid out that we were quickly able to find the function tabs and links we needed.
