Big test, thanks for sharing!
I use ESET Smart Security + Zemana and I think a very good combination!
ESET + Zemana = Lightweight and effective :)
ESET gave life to my system, after suffering much from Avast and AVG :(
And Zemana a very good addition.

Nice test and very good job! I like the way you are doing your tests now :p

P.S: You have at least 1 "malware" that isn't a malware in that folder (HFS by rejetto). ESET classifies it as "potentially unsafe" ;)

I will recommend this combo to anyone who is looking for a decent security setup with low performance impact.

I haven't seen Eset HIPS or Heuristic works for unknown malwares. If the pc is not infect is only for Zemana real-time protection?

Actually its enabled, but I dont change anything on the HIPS setting.
So its set on Automatic mode not a good HIPS setting, if you don't manually set HIPS you should at least use Smart mode or Learning mode to create rules automatically for maximum duration of 14 days and then change to Interactive mode or Policy-based mode.

I know but its based on my real-system and gaming pc.
I dont randomly install softwares- try a software on VM. Also the good thing is no leftover files after uninstall a software..

So I think I dont need HIPS especially on my gaming pc. Only games, editing.. thats it :D

Meanwhile i have seen video another time. I mean when you start to execute random malwares from the folder, i cannot see ESET warning about suspicious items running on the system. Only Zemana advise. That's it
Probably i don't know all ESET setting and how they work.

@Stas: so, only in learing mode ESET can try to stop unknown malwares?
