What’s new

The long-time development experience of our experts is demonstrated by the entirely new architecture of the ESET NOD32 Antivirus program, which guarantees maximum detection with minimum system requirements. The complex security solution contains modules with several advanced options. The following list offers you a brief overview of these modules.

Antivirus & Antispyware

This module is built upon the ThreatSense® scanning core, which was used for the first time in the award-winning NOD 32 Antivirus system. The ThreatSense® core is optimized and improved with the new ESET NOD32 Antivirus architecture.



Improved cleaning

The antivirus system now intelligently cleans and deletes most of the detected infiltrations without requiring user intervention.

Background Scanning Mode

Computer scanning can be launched in the background without slowing down performance.

Smaller update files

Core optimization processes keep the size of update files considerably smaller than in earlier versions. Also, the protection of update files against damage has been improved.

Popular Email Client Protection

It is now possible to scan incoming mail not only in MS Outlook but also in the following popular email clients: Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail a Mozilla Thunderbird.

Variety of other improvements

  • Direct access to file systems for high speed and throughput.
  • Blocking access to infected files
  • Optimization for the Windows Security Center, including Vista






ESET SysRescue

ESET SysRescue enables user to create a bootable CD/DVD/USB containing ESET NOD32 Antivirus, which is capable of running independent of the operating system. It is best used to get the system rid of hard-to-remove infiltrations.

ESET SysInspector

ESET SysInspector, an application that thoroughly inspects your computer, is now integrated directly in ESET NOD32 Antivirus. If you contact our Customer Care Service using the Help and support > Customer Care support request (recommended) option, you can opt to include an ESET SysInspector status snapshot from your computer.

Document protection

The Document protection serves to scan Microsoft Office documents before they are opened and files downloaded automatically by Internet Explorer, such as Microsoft ActiveX elements.

Self Defense

The new Self Defense technology protects ESET NOD32 Antivirus components against deactivation attempts.

User interface

The user interface is now capable of working in the non-graphical mode, which allows for keyboard control of ESET NOD32 Antivirus.
The increased compatibility with screen-reading applications supporting Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) lets sight-impaired people control the program more efficiently.
