ESET Smart Security 5 is a strong, innovative program that acclimates to a rapidly altering threatscape, keeping a focus on general findings and now-commonplace support on both locally and cloud stored detection.

The installation of ESET can be quicker, though it’s absolutely not slow. It is held up by a mass of screens, comprising registration, and a needless inquiry as to if the user wishes to have potentially undesirable program (PUP) defense started or not. Even though it’s a genuine query, there is no good reason for it to hold up the installation by another screen.


Layout of the program Smart Security 5 remains same from the version 4, excluding the slight details, though none is as simple as it really should be. You first see a window that indicates your computer’s security standing. The default color is green, which switches to red color and a notice when essential safety features, for instance Network Protection, get disabled. The pane in the center does not specify this clearly. However, the Maximum Protection text label tells you which folders of your computer are or are not protected.

Features & support:

ESET 5’s essential features keep the program on one of top most of its class. There are 2 default scans: custom scan and a “Smart Scan”. ESET has enhanced its antispyware and antivirus engines, so they do not just detect the threats, but also protect your host files from exploitation prior to bad guys coming after you. There is detachable media control for you to block external drives or USB keys from linking to your PC. The latest gamer mode mechanically starts silently running whenever a program runs at full screen. It is ideal for games and demonstrations, as well as movies. It can also be activated from system tray.


ESET Smart Security 5’s general performance grants a consistent safety option. Though it is not the most efficient security software that was released this year, but it is a solid and secure option, with a light touch on the performance of your computer.
