Eset has a decent intelligent firewall. If your going to be running their AV, and want more then just windows firewall, might as well bump up to the whole package, and gain the parental control, anti theft and firewall, while still maintaining the lightness of Eset..

Main differences are quite simple if you visit their site > http://www.eset.co.uk/Home/Compare/Windows

ESET NOD32 provides the same level of protection to Smart Security with minor differences, depending on user requirements.

Anti-Theft is new to ESET SS v7.
Prey Anti-Theft is a free, open-source alternative > http://preyproject.com (Pro versions are available). Recommended for laptops and tablets, and / or if you travel with devices.

Firewall
If you use Windows Vista, 7 or higher, then you should be able to use Windows Firewall with your AV, and if you're interested you can configure it. Look for a guide called Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, or there may be a guide somewhere here.

Anti-Spam
Not required if you only use web-mail (ie. gmail.com, outlook.com etc) - am I correct?

Parental Control > http://www.eset.com/us/parental/
Blocks unwanted internet content, (ie. adult, gambling, irc etc)

Higher then average detection rates, and like many others, i have an old love of Comodo Firewall, that being said, i am running Eset Smart Security on my system that im writing this from, needless to say, i have faith in their firewall..
