Avast! vs Eset
« on: March 26, 2010, 03:37:54 PM »
Hey,
I know that this question is already asked a million times, but once again: What do you think, which one is better in overall? NOD32 or AVAST5 ??
I mean for me it's important to be good at real-time protection, and not too consume too much resources. So considering these 2 views, please help me decide which one to use. (All the other stuffs aren't important for me e.g.: antispam, ease of use etc..)
E6550 2.33GHZ (OC'd to 2.8 stable), 6GB DDRii RAM, 500GB SAMSUNG HDD, Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Avast! FREE ANTIVIRUS, Advanced SystemCare (only run On-demand, weekly)

No antivirus is perfect.  Avast and Nod32 both hace decent interfaces, decent detections, low false positives, both are low on resources.
By the way are u considering the firewall as well? Then I can not tell about that.
But Avast has a free version with many features while Nod32 has nothing such. So, why don't you try Avast free a few days. May be you will fall in love with Avast.
What I don't liked about Nod32 is that it auto-quarantines threats but Avast gives you alart about threats or can do predefined action with an attractive voice-over message.
Anyone who knows how to loose can certainly learn how to win.

So the last versions of Eset (V4.0) are heavy compared to other versions and a proccess called ekrn.exe eats a lot of resources sometimes consuming 100% of CPU  ::)

avast! is free, is light on resources and i think that offers equal or better protection than Eset.
remember that avast have 7 shields of protection and excelent detection!!  ;)
You must give a try to avast  ;)

i own both and i personally use avast on my own system as good as eset may be it has failed me in the past. as well as the firewall just has sooo many issues even more then avast 5 is does imo. and i agree with the newest builds ess has become much slower for me and heavy
To many systems to list specs lol.. Avast internet security beta.

I used NOD32 for the past 3 years. The obvious thing that hits you is upgrading. There is no notification that an upgrade is available. I usually found out while surfing the Wilders Security forum. Eset requires you to go to the download page, download the upgrade, insert your key, and finish the upgrade process. Avast notifies you with a pop up, and you know the rest.  ;)

So fast update,low ressource,scan fast and dont eat your cpu,hot interface,awesome protection for free home users,etc... What you want more ? A Firewall ? Then try out their trial of avast! and find out which solution you feel better. (Free,Pro,Suite) its up to you to choice. ;)

My personal vote goes to Avast, had a NOD32 license for a few years. Detection wise they seem about the same from my experience but I've had far fewer problems with stability and what not with Avast.

I used to use Eset severl years ago and I never felt protected at all, every time I used to look for spyware it was found in my system, after using Avast I forgot about this problem, now Avast runs in my 3 computers very soft that I can't feel it is there.
