If you're looking for a great antivirus solution that's both comprehensive and effective, then you might be interested in ESET Smart Security.
This suite of security tools includes most, if not all, of what you need to keep your PC as secure as possible. ESET Security Suite includes an antivirus program, a firewall, anti-spam module and a load of settings to keep yourself safe.
The application provides two different modes: Advanced and Standard. Though pretty self-explanatory, the standard mode is more of a 'set and forget' option while the advanced mode provides more in terms of options and customization.
As with almost all antivirus solutions, ESET Smart Security has different modes of scanning. You can be more thorough or less of a deep scan. Custom scans provide the ability to search in custom locations while the "Removable Media Scan" scans connected devices such as USB sticks and memory cards.
With real-time protection, ESET Smart Security has a gamer mode, anti-stealth protection and anti-phishing protection.
All in all, ESET Smart Security is an excellent option for protection against online threats while providing some additional layers of security above and beyond NOD32 Antivirus, ESET's flagship antivirus product.
ESET Smart Security is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from antivirus and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days).
