Eset NOD 32 version4 is an impressive anti-virus that is very user friendly and light on the systems. Unlike some other more popular contenders it does not offer unnecessary features and works silently in most cases. The users need not bother about system speed after installing this lightweight app. Right from the time of the installation it gives the users the feeling of working as usual without any interruption. Its effective ThreatSense technology is ideal for catching and removing all types of online and offline malwares. The technology is superior to the widely seen heuristic scan technology and throws far less amount of false positives. The setup of this app finishes lightning fast and after that the users can customize the interface.
The best thing about the Eset NOD 32 version4 antivirus is that its spartan looking interface contains all the useful features. The basic interface aka the standard mode is the default and it is ideal for the majority of users. However, the users who love tweaking the app they use can always switch to the advanced mode which is suited for the demanding users. Eset also offers a very practical battery saving mode meant for the laptop users.
Norton Antivirus is one of the most reputed players in the industry but its abundance of features makes it cumbersome for a section of users. Not everybody requires the truckloads of features Norton unveils. Eset on the other hands offers useful features and does the basic job of an anti-virus well. Eset offers background update download and installation which is convenient for the users. Norton’s latest version is faster than the earlier ones but Eset is blazing fast. In malware detection both are at par but Eset’s ThreatSense technology is a tad better than the heuristic core used in Norton 2011.
