The typical installation is recommended for users who want to install ESET NOD32 Antivirus with the typical settings. The default typical settings of the program provide the maximum level of protection, a fact appreciated by less skilled users who do not want to configure detailed settings.

The first and very important step is entering the User name and Password for automatic updating of the program. It plays a significant role in providing constant protection of the system.

Enter your User name and Password, i.e. the authentication data you received after the purchase or registration of the product, into the corresponding fields. If you do not currently have your User name and Password available, select the option Set update parameters later. Authentication data can be inserted at any time later on, directly from the program.

The next step in the installation is configuration of the ThreatSense.Net Early Warning System. The ThreatSense.Net Early Warning System helps to ensure that ESET is immediately and continuously informed about new infiltrations in order to quickly protect its customers. The system permits submission of new threats to ESET’s virus laboratory, where they are analyzed, processed and added to the virus signature databases.

Select the checkbox Enable ThreatSense.Net Early Warning System to activate this feature. Click Advanced setup to modify detailed settings for the submission of suspicious files.

The next step in the installation process is configuring protection against potentially unwanted applications. Potentially unwanted applications are not necessarily intended to be malicious, but they may affect the performance of the operating system in a certain way. Such applications usually require consent for installation. This is because they are often a part of the installation of other programs, and may be difficult to notice during installation. Installation of potentially unwanted applications can often negatively affect the behavior of the operating system

Check the option Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications to allow ESET NOD32 Antivirus to detect this type of threat. Our recommendation is to enable this option.

The last step in the typical installation mode is confirmation of the installation by clicking on the Install button.
