As i can see you already use Eset. Is there any problem with it? Are you satisfied with it?
So let's go:
1) PAID PRODUCTS: I used most of them (Norton, Gdata, Trend Micro, Emsisoft Antimalware, Eset Smart Security, Kaspersky Antivirus, Bitdefender Internet security 2014, Vipre, etc...) and i can certainly tell you that ESET and Emsisoft are the best choices.
2) FREE PRODUCTS: Things here are more easy......Qihoo 360 Internet Security (Total security is also very good but still needs improvements) and Avast (modified settings).

Final Suggestion:
I think it is better for you to stay with your current configuration, You are well protected from what i can read to your signature.

All the best.

I already have Mbam Pro, but it's real time protection is not like Emsisoft.As about cleaning of traces i would say that both are the same with a slight edge on Mbam.I use it from time to time but i don't think i need Mbam real time as long as i have Eset Smart Security installed.
Avast Premier = Same as Avast Free (detection/signatures) with some extra tools and bla bla bla.....
Personally i wouldn't pay for Avast products as many people reported a lot of problems (especially support)
I cant tell anything else other than that, as i never used this program.Better ask someone that uses Premier if you need to know anything else.

Thank you

I don't trust Webroot to protect me.:( Unless it has come a long way since I last used it. Yes, I did pay for it & got infected by adware/spyware & it just sit there & did nothing.:eek:
Really? But Webroot observes unknown behaviour and monitors it... then rollback the changes if anything suspicious is found. Did Webroot rollback the damages in your system?

Right now I am not using ESET. I am using Webroot and very glad for its lightness and speed. However I miss Emsisoft.

Sorry my friend but this is your signature :
ESET Nod32, Windows Firewall
K9 WebProtection
UAC - Max
SmartScreen
MCShield 3


If you are satisfied more with Webroot than with Eset then i think everything is ok for you now.

ESET trumps both. Sorry.
Switching to either would be a downgrade for you ifacedown.

Emsisoft is better security than Webroot in terms of malware because it has a stronger stand against PUA's !

As far as I know Webroot did not catch it. My PC was directing me to different searches & I installed Avast & it caught it.

Try them out and decide. There are always people afraid to try something new..."Norton Internet Security" was heavy 3 years ago so it will always be that way....nothing changes! Wrong...Use what works best for you! Can't go wrong!

Actually I have used ESET for a year... and now Webroot for four days.

ESET is better than Emsi? Why? Lightness or protection?

I would say more of a combination of other things.
If i had to list just 1 or 2 things i would say scanning speed. support, or additional features.
They are pretty close on protection, and pretty close on lightness as well.

On lightness ESET is far lighter... The Beta 8 version of ESET is lighter. About support, I believe Emsi is greater. On protection, yes close.
