    Hello @amir 957,

    As an active ESET user i can certainly confirm that ESET Internet Security v11 is a real solid piece of software. Default it's pretty mediocre, but if you go through all the configuration you'll achieve a level of lockdown on the PC that almost no software can give you.

    By enabling PUP detection, PDP detection, Firewall and HIPS on interactive mode, and lots more (configuration possibilities are insanely high, it's very interesting how you can tweak this program) you can literally chain your PC and lock it down. Meaning: excellent behaviour blocker through combination of firewall, HIPS and LiveGrid, excellent PUP detection (best on the business) and great protection against network attacks.

    As for F-Secure, i have never been a big fan. I used it back then and it was pretty light to the system but the false positives was dangerously high, and still is. I would not recommend it for daily usage.

    I agree with RoboMan Eset is excellent, I use it myself and I am very pleased.

    I vote for ESET because I have been using it for 3 years and have never had any problems with it. EIS provides solid and stable protection.:)

    I think with proper tweaks, ESET is far better and a bit lighter

    I always hated ESET because of its ugly Robot logo lol! But last week I downloaded and activated trial then I immediately fall in love with it. Very configurable. Protection is as same as Kaspersky! I don't know about F-secure since I never used it!
