Anti-virus products are ten a penny at the moment, and although you can find free antivirus, anti malware or even anti spyware products on every street corner of the world wide web, very few of these products are reliable or strong enough to prevent your PC's security from being breached. One program which achieves a very high level of protection is ESET NOD32 Antivirus. This program is considered by experts to detect over 90 percent of all invaders, so when combined with another piece of antiviral software, you should be completely secure.

Installing the ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5 program is rather like going through the installation of a computer video game, complete with unnecessary images which seem to depict a robot or cyborg. The installation process is also quite long, about 3-4 minutes. You will also need to read very carefully through the information on the first page of the Launcher, as boxes are checked which would allow the company to monitor your computer use. You can download the free trial without having to hand over a penny, however you will not get any information on how long that trial will last, or what will happen at the end of it.

The Launcher did not start the program at the end of the installation, which is quite unusual, and so the product had to be launched via the Start Menu. However, once it was started, the user interface was clear and friendly, and there was no problem in initiating a Smart Scan. There is a longer scan available for those who want to check every part of the PC. The user can also find plenty of help and support, both online and through the website. The scan took quite a while, much longer than other scans, and this reflects a general slowness around the whole installation. After 10 minutes, the scan had only progressed around 7%, and browsers and software were also slowed down during this time.

Overall, the ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5 is a reasonable item, much like a number of other anti-virus software products, but the cost, around £30 per user per year, and the overall slowness of the program lets it down.
