ESAT Smart security is the Best Antivirus for Windows 8 32/64-bit, vista/xp
if you have a laptop and needs a firewall and anti spam, then ESAT smart security is a better choice
NOD32 haven’t had any problems on my systems, everything runs fine, I love ESAT’s small notifies about virus updates, they are sweet and really not annoying and it tells you the antivirus is up-to-date,
ESAT’s updates antivirus definitions twice or more a day, so you might get new antivirus definitions 3-4 times a day!
NOD32 & Smart Security does not use much resources, if you manual scan, then it uses much CPU, but when it runs in the background it takes less than 80MB memory, 0-2% CPU in Windows 8
you can turn on gamer mode when you are playing games it gives better performance than any in its competition.
More than one license is cheap compared to other antivirus products from other companies
I recommend NOD32 Antivirus for PCs and workstations behind a firewall or routers
I also recommend ESAT Smart security 6 for Laptops and people that don’t have router and only have a modem.
Why I recommend this is that your laptop will be more secure to have ESAT’s firewall in smart security, some special things about ESAT Smart security 6 that I like to mention is
