    Due to the small number of samples used in this tests, you should take results with a grain of salt. I encourage you to compare these results with others and take informed decisions on what security products to use.


    Take this test with a huge grain of salt. Still, watch ESET be crushed by zero day samples/links. Still a product worth the use. Take the work from an ESET user :) This software needs a bit of tweaking to offer a great protecting level :)

    I'm still one of Eset's biggest fans RoboMan.:cry: Food for thought though.

    Thanks for the info.

    Disappointed! Why this time it's poor against PUPs and adwares many of which were picked up by Zemana AntiMalware Premium?

    :rolleyes:

    Well, someone will inform the tester and after enabling the required settings for PUP/PUA he'll return for another new video :)

    Thats true and in my opion the average user doesn't tweak an antivirus. We need a reference for those tests...and the base is that the options are disabled by default.
    It's sophisticated whining. Eset is a good product in the top 5 of all security programs.

    Before taking any conclusions or not using the product take into account ESET brings literally hundred of tweaking options to achieve maximum protection, and even after doing it it's still as light as a feather. "Malware Blocker" used a default ESET product which means a really low protection level. Novice users who don't tweak their antivirus should be worried after this video. I hope all of us understand and know how to configure properly any software. I'm using ESET IS18 and i spent around 20 minutes setting it up to achieve best protection. I'm literally warned about everything that goes on on sight and on the background. Take my word and the word of my fellas above.

    Video shows the real world scenario with an average user with no IT background downloading some "free" stuffs (cough cough ... Pirated) having no signatures available.
    Eset is a good product with very low system impact. They just need to make the default settings a bit more secure.

    That's the problem with ESET for a long time. It has a very powerful HIPS that comes configured from factory to do basically nothing The average user does not want to spend time playing around with their security software that's something that just enthusiasts do. It should come with more aggressive settings.

    They should really consider setting the HIPS component to smart mode as default.

    I do not know why they get so complicated ...
    Eset default is enough for a home user ..
    Let's be honest people just use facebook and facebook..The most dangerous are the pushing

    If you refer to ESET AV then I say it's ok. But if you refer to ESET IS and say the default settings are enough for a home user then I say you don't use the IS but the AV will do.

    Choosing an IS involves protection against network attacks as well which will involve the FW and other advanced network settings something which is not suitable for a normal home user. This also applies to other IS from other companies.
