I have tried both McAfee and ESET. MIS have higher system impact compare to ESET. And what bribon77 says he is absolutely correct.
Eset Internet Security, without a doubt, has a great Firewall and a powerful HIPS is good against PUPS. And a very good euristica. If you know the potential of Eset and how to configure is tremendous.(y):giggle:
But it was difficult for me to configure ESET so i installed F-Secure SAFE( free 1 year licence;))

If it is true F-Secure SAFE or Emsisoft Antimalware. are more automated have fewer advanced options.:giggle:
I think that F-Secure SAFE is more automated. It doesn't even have a pause button in scan window:p, you will have to stop it. But it full scan is faster than malwarebytes scan on my PC. I found it as light as ESET except file copying. If ESET is configured than it is better than kaspersky in terms of device protection.

IMHO I would go for ESET, I've used it on & off for 15 years or so, that was NOD32, they added a firewall & became the program we see now & I honestly have never had an issue with it. I would also consider Norton, it has a good & very easy to configure firewall & gives really good protection - I'm running it now on 3 PC's & very pleased.

I would feel more comfortable having an Eset, it has excellent detectability with negligible effect on the system and a lot of possibilities to set it.
I used Eset for a long time and I was very pleased with it.
I would like to come back to it as if I just had a chance.
