ESET NOD32 Antivirus + Antispyware
• This component is in fact an improved version of the award-winning scanning engine of NOD32 Antivirus v2.7. With respect to program's unprecedented scanning speed, the following improvements have been made:
• Improved system of cleaning and deleting infiltrations. The antivirus system now intelligently cleans and deletes infiltrations with no need for user interaction.
• Computer scan can be run in background in order to use only a part of system resources. Thus scanning will not affect the
performance of your computer and you will be able to work on it as usual.
• The resident protection supports archive scanning.
• Update optimization, smaller update package size than in version 2.7, more effective management and protection of update files against damage.
• Email protection for users of Outlook Express.
ESET Personal Firewall
• Firewall monitors all traffic between a protected computer and other computers in the local network and in the Internet. High quality protection is provided by the following functions:
• Scanning of application protocols HTTP and POP3 (used for Internet browsing and for retrieving email from servers) for infiltrations.
• Checking low-level network communication which helps to avoid many of various remote attacks.
• Ability to recognize the character of network connections established by various types of infiltrations and ability to automatically terminate them.
• Filtering of incoming and outgoing communication based on user defined rules.
• Monitoring changes in executable files.
• Interactive and automatic mode. The former enables you to create your own filtering rules, the latter filters all communication automatically.
ESET Anti Spam
• ESET Anti Spam serves to filter unsolicited email, which makes your work with email more effective. The key features of the ESET Anti Spam are:
• Support for the RCF email format
• Supports several scanning techniques including the combination of Bayesian filter, virus signatures and user defined rules.
