Review

If you use an antivirus to protect your PC against trojans, worms, viruses, dialers, and other types of malware, you probably heard of ESET NOD32 Antivirus, a program developed by ESET North America in order to ensure PC protection against the above-mentioned threats.

The software comes wrapped in a beautifully designed interface featuring a contrast combination of theme colors and well-designed menus, with properly crafted buttons, text-size, and fonts.

The installation process lasts a bit too long in my opinion, and inexperienced users may find it quite tricky to some points, giving numerous configuration settings.

The features NOD32 comes packed with are various and include an Anti-Phishing feature for protecting your privacy against sites that attempt to acquire sensitive information such as passwords or bank details, and a function that scans the files that are being downloaded, such as archives.

Moreover, Ransomware Shield blocks malware that tries to force you to pay a ransom for unlocking personal data. The software has a feature called Script-Based Attack Protection that detects malicious scripts, which try to exploit Windows PowerShell weaknesses or attack PC browsers via malicious JavaScripts.

Other important utilities include a device control tool for prevention of unauthorized transfer of files from PC to external devices, and Idle-state scan, which performs in-depth scans when your computer is not in use. more
