Why ESET believe they are better than other solutions:
"ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus focus on proactive detection of malware utilizing advanced heuristics, generic signatures and genetic technology to help protect from unknown threats. Computers are most vulnerable to Internet threats during the window between the virus outbreak and the signature update. Our ThreatSense® technology minimizes the vulnerability during this window."
What are the system requirements?
Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/Home Server on the following chipset i386 (Intel® 80386), AMD64 (x86-64)
