Eset NOD32

In this day and age, there are more and more security threats roaming the world wide web. With more and more people connecting all the time, and with the ever increasing connection speeds, the threats to one's computer just start to multiply. On top of this, people are constantly creating malware that is more elusive, dangerous, or both, compared to their predecessors. With all the evils around, how is one to protect their computer? Luckily, there is a solution with Eset's NOD32, and with their latest release, they have extended their protection to users of Microsoft Windows 64-bit operating systems. Haven't heard of Eset or NOD32 before? Well you should have, considering that it has the best virus detection track record out there. It's even more effective at catching viruses than Symantec and McAfee, which many people entrust everything to.

Now to show you what NOD32 is all about. Everything that you'll ever need to do goes through the main window. From here, you can see when the last update occurred, what NOD32 is currently doing, and much more. The display may seem small, but this is just the Control Center, and don't let the size of the interface fool you about the capabilities of the program. If something isn't working properly, the Control Center will change the icon next to the non-functioning module to red to alert you of a problem. If something goes wrong, the system tray icon will also turn red to alert you to check the Control Center.

Protection Modules

To ensure total system protection, Eset has put in a set of protection modules that cover everything to keep your system safe. The first of these is AMON, which is the real-time file scanning agent that will scan all files that are currently being used or accessed by anything on your system. But doesn't all that scanning slow the system down? No, as NOD32's scanning is among the fastest around. Since it only has to do a small check to see if the file may be dangerous, it takes very little effort on any PC. DMON is the document scanning agent. It will check any document that you try to open. If it contains a malicious macro that could harm your system if run, DMON prevents it from running. It will also make sure that the document or file itself doesn't contain hidden code that could harm your system when run. Since many threats can now be sent through email, there is the EMON module. It will watch all emails to verify that the attachments are safe for opening. It can also protect you from html encoded messages that have hidden code which could possibly infect your computer with malware. The next module on the list is IMON, the internet monitor. It watches everything that comes into or goes out of your computer, making sure that no viruses are coming in or going out. This will protect you from the malware that travels in hidden web page code, self-sending viruses that implant themselves on your computer through holes in the operating system, and any of a number of other ways they could travel. This will prevent malicious ads or websites from harming your computer and will keep you safe from the millions of online threats. The final module is the NOD32 On Demand scanner. This is what allows you to run system scans to make sure that nothing on your computer is possibly harmful. It also has a right-click feature that allows you to right-click a file and have NOD32 scan just that file to make sure that it's safe.

NOD32 Detection Features

NOD32 has a rock solid detection engine, but also offers all the flexibility and options that home users and corporate IT managers could want. Not only does NOD32 offer a first class web, email, office document and on demand web scanner, it also offers a huge range of options to maximize scanning performance and efficiency. Multiple scanning profiles can be created with various sets of options selected for various situations.

Like most virus scanners, NOD32 has an option to create a list of specific folders, files, or filename extensions to scan under certain circumstances. Default actions to take are available for fully automatic cleaning, renaming, deletion, or quarantine of an infected file. NOD32 also provides right-click menu integration, where individual or multiple files can be selected to be scanned within Windows Explorer.

Advanced users will also be more than satisfied with the array of choices provided under the Setup tab when running a scan. You may choose to scan the boot sector, system memory, archives, runtime packers, email, and NTFS (ADS) scanning. Many viruses use methods to load themselves into the boot sector of the hard drive, where they can disguise and hide themselves for loading when the system boots. If your system is already infected, NOD32

Thanks Mac, I forgot to mention it in the review, but Dean (OsirisX) and Larry (phileysmiley) also contributed a lot to it.

Welcome to PROnetworks :yesnod:

As for updating without an internet connection, does your computer have any network connection? If it does, then you can set up an Update Server and have your computer access the update server that is hosting the update files that you'll need to download to that computer. More instructions on doing this can be found in the NOD32 Network Administrator Manual. If you don't have any network connection at all on the computer that you're running NOD32 on, you may want to contact their Support and ask about updating the program manually without a network connection.

i add to pro: simplicity, NOD32 is not like the norton flashy, with plenty of colours; simplicity is the middle name of NOD32, that's why is my favourite
and the fact that the advanced options can be overwhelming is a pro (at least to me) because advanced options are for advanced users :) and should be overwhelming :))

I really like the advanced options because they are made to suit my needs. I purchsed the Family Pack with four licenses and was able to download an administrative set of software for free that runs on my server, downloads and distributes updates, and even has a configuration file that lets me do an unattended install on all of my clients and their configuration is exactly the same! Great product.

Sadly, my mother and my mother-in-law still have their subscriptions of Norton AV (I set them up with them :confused) and I can't wait for their subscriptions to run out so I can get them switched over to Nod32 and I won't have to deal with trying to fix the problems Norton is giving them again.

I'm actually impressed that they are still displaying that as Eset displayed that and linked to this review back when it was first put up.
