Hello @RaidenBoth are great products with excellent protection. I really don't think you can go wrong with either one. I haven't tried F-Secure in a while, but from what I have heard/read since switching to the Avira engine, it seems like they have made some great improvements. They have Deepguard, but Eset has HIPS. Eset is a tweaker's dream. Both are very light weight, so really I think both will serve you well. I would trial both and see which one you like more. Last time I tried F-secure, I couldn't get over that baby blue colour they have on their UI. I wish it was a more darker blue as I find that light blue makes it look like a kid's toy. That's just personal preference, but it drove me crazy lol.
Your advice cannot be proven, we never know what people doing and how may getting infected, we can say the chance is rarely but it's still possible!Just do not over complicate things and take it easy; you're a home user and you will not encounter sophisticated malware. Stay Safe!
Only to worry about system impact isn't really harmless to recommend, risky users should even more care about the most possible protection by AVs or those people just need learning safe habits...From the protection point of view most security software are so close in detection rates that your only worry should be system impact, ease of use and price.
Well, I know it is still possible to get infected, but believe me that my family members are the most ignorant happy clickers ever created and they "rarely" get infected. I install a good ad-blocker and a good security solution.Your advice cannot be proven, we never know what people doing and how may getting infected, we can say the chance is rarely but it's still possible!
