[Best Buy] ESET NOD32 Antivirus "Gamer Edition" $9.99

The one negative review is somebody complaining that it's just the regular ESET NOD32 Antivirus with different packaging, but I think that might be a good thing as the regular Eset is a solid AV, especially for 10 bucks.

Anyone know if ESET is a decent antivirus and does it have ransomware remediation? Also mostly how intrusive is it? I have Bitdefender and it has a ton of great features but it's very intrusive and will block items even though I have the folder whitelisted.

Been using it for a year and happy with it. It’s low profile and lightweight. Not intrusive at all.

I have been using ESET for more than 10 years. Not sure about Ransomware, since I haven't encountered one for quite a while. The only two unwanted software block for me are mining software and "modified" games. You can whitelist them pretty easily. As for webpages, ESET seems to block a lot of things, while some are pretty safe, the others are very sketchy. So, unless you absolute know what you are visiting, I would say the webpage block work for many people.

Really a proper and light on resources AV. The “full protection” version comes with all sorts of features like blocking access to webcam and mic to not approved apps and whatnot. But the basic one is also good.
most things haven't worked out

Seems pricey for $10/device/year. And it doesn't seem to have features for backup and file scrubbing...

I've been an ESET customer on an off since 2007ish. It's always been lightweight and efficient. The main reason I switched away from it was that bitdefender had a way better sale on a 3 year subscription. In addition I agree with the whitelisting folder issue, it's super annoying every time I install a game it blocks the my document folder for it. Another reason I picked bitdefender this time around was reviews put it's defense of ransomware above nod32 everywhere I looked.

Been using Windows Defender + Malwarebytes combo for years and never had a problem. To each their own.
I love RFD! :)

Windows Defender is all you need. This is a complete waste of money.
