Here’s just a short review of ESET Internet Security, I’m not really an expert on Antiviruses or Internet Security suite’s, though I think I have some points that need to be made. The second I installed this program after buying it, the internet slowed down dramatically and my computer was super super slow. That’s probably because it’s got a firewall and was scanning my internal drive for viruses. That’s ok, I understand that, but I think we need a bit of a warning before that stuff starts.
Sometimes, I’m trying to do something on the internet, that the website loads so slow, that I literally need to turn the Firewall off completely. I like the protection but, there is like 3 prompts to click on before the Firewall is disabled. That’s just a tiny bit annoying.
The nice feature is the drag and drop your unsuspecting files into the window to get them scanned, but you can always right click on the file and scan it that way too. That’s probably faster anyways.
This Internet Security suite also does nothing for phishing scams while browsing the web, which is a shame, and that was Trend Micro Internet Security I was using before this. It would literally scan every thing that entered my computer. I guess I should switch back huh?.
Other than all that, since I know computers really well, this Internet Security suite should be just enough for me to get by. I just need something scanning files that are going into my computer. The one thing I couldn’t fix with this software is the Anti-Theft optimization warning, I mean, I don’t think my computer is getting stolen but, I tried to set it up and had no success, so I give up. Don’t feel bad if you can’t get it to work.
So there’s my review, love it or hate it, thats my review. I would say that Trend Micro Internet Security is a lot better. But since I bought this software for a year, I have to use it for a year. If anything new comes up I’ll let you guys know in another post.
