Dude, don't stay with the desire to try Avast. If you don't like it, just take it off.I do not usually pay attention to the surveys because according to the AV tests I would use bitdefender or kaspersky (I have tried them) that come out well punctuated, I am a user of eset I have never tried avast which is one of the most used suites
What about privacy concerns such as spying on your webcam? Who can tolerate this behavior? Please, have a look at Discuss - Avast and AVG spying on you via webcam. Beware of scammers.Pros :
Signatures : Avast slightly has better signatures and response to newer threats is better too ..Eset too is same however since Avast cloud (+AVG) is larger than Eset..response is slightly faster from what I seen.
Next Proactive detection : Avast beats Eset completely ..Cleanup against unknown malware is quite good.
Eset fails to remove any traces that are out of it's signatures. Behaviour based detection of Avast is vastly improved so it's blocking and cleanup + (AVG IDP) ..Eset hips is ok on tweaking but that cannot be replaced with BB .
Antiphishing of Avast is excellent over Eset. After AVG acquisition ..it's phishing capability at par with Trend and Webroot.
Avast is free ..that dominates Eset (Paid) in protection category ..
As far as PUP and Lightness is concerned Eset is the winner ..however pup detection should be enabled manually in both Avast and Avg.
