Not too long ago we were here, in another thread, discussing about the previous test from this very same guy who gave ESET appalling scores with a major war of words ongoing on this place for weeks. That was when i joined the ESET family and this forum. Because while everyone was fighting based on the opinions of this guy, what i did was to download ESET, then set it up with maximum settings, including the HIPS rules which i added manually from an ESET guide and, that is my understanding, later on were added by ESET as standard in their product.
The result was me leaving another product after over 15 years of non stop usage (they removed the spam protection to an extent) and buying a 3 years subscription for ESET with a special offer in my country of residence.
I never had issues with the previous product. I had never issues with the current one, with only minor complaints related to small details. It might be to soon to be too positive. I don't know. However the bottom line is: Try things by yourself. Reviews are entertaining, they can be a rough guide to what you are looking for. But there is no substitute for your experience.
ESET is working fine for me. I only consider their notifications an utter pain in the neck. I had to mute them. And some of their threats are not explained in the proper way. I am happy that i can change whatever i want and that i can set rules by myself if needed. It surely is not a suite for the lazy. But it is a good product, if one takes some time to learn how to use it and is not scared of asking questions.
The support in the forum is overall good as well. The previous product had an appalling support.
And did try many other products together with ESET. I threw all of them away. Some slowed down my PC, others had too much bloatware in them, some were oversimplified and didn't allow me to have a good control (no notifications at all in those...as opposed to ESET, with worse nightmares as you don't know what's going on underneath).
Try things yourself! We'll be here in a few months with this guy giving ESET a lower score and more arguments arising, most probably.

Description: Merge the More tools menu into the Tools menu
Detail: The current Tools menu only includes three less commonly used modules and leaves a huge blank space.
However, the most commonly used modules (e.g. Log files) are included in the More tools menu, which needs one more click to enter.
Merge the More tools menu into the Tools menu can make full use of the space and reduce unnecessary operations.

Description: ESET Sandbox + ESET Auto SandBox
Details ; I Want add ESET sandBox + ESET auto SandBox like avast sandbox + auto sandbox
The avast! Sandbox is a special security feature which allows you to run potentially suspicious applications automatically in a completely isolated environment. Programs running within the sandbox have limited access to your files and system, so there is no risk to your computer or any of your other files. This feature is connected to the FileRep cloud feature which identifies new files for additional analysis. So now we are able to warn you even before we have had the opportunity to examine this malware in our Virus Lab.

Description: A Manage application section like Kaspersky or an Application network rules section like Kaspersky or maybe both.
Details: Currently there is no way to know which programs I ran on my PC that was trusted by Eset or not. By having an Application manager it would make really easy give a detailed representation. Eset already kind of has this but that's for running processes only but not for all the products and also this window just shows information but I can't interact with it like it's possible in Kaspersky.
And for Firewall, it's possible to add rules for specific programs of course but it would be better if there was list of all applications to show what is set to allowed by Eset and what not. This should be interactive too so if a user want to deny let's say "Cleaner" internet connection then the he/she would select Ccleaner from the list and deny it internet access instead of the current situation where user need to manually browser the program to block it in Firewall. The current implementation should always be there of course but my proposed interface would make everything much easier. Also a program can have multiple files that access to the internet. From this list it would be much easier to find that out. So, overall user experience would improve a lot.
To have a closer look you may try installing Kaspersky to understand how this two mode works on their product. I don't want Eset to have the exact same to same that Kaspersky has but the basic idea should be the same.
I love Eset because it's great product and super lite. But I want Eset to have these features. I'm sure it's not just me but everybody would appreciate it and it will make the product even better.
