    The sad part ... 2 Years / 10 PCs Out of stock.

    I bougt my ESET NOD32 Antivirus (2 Years /1 PC) at Kinguin a couple of years ago.

    As you can see I'm soon in need for a new license. But looking for a licensee for more than one pc and with 2 years support. And Eset NOD32 is the only AV I will use. I don't want the full Security package. Neither will I use antivirus software from other companies.

    Same here. I don't want the extra bloat. Only antivirus. The security suite is too much extra crap. Although I am not using anything on LTSC or W7. Only on the Cancer versions of W10 to help disable Defender's trash payload.

    I just grabbed one of those multidevice keys from BestBuy Canada for $20.

    Right now, I'm just running the AV. Is it worth installing the full security suite? Seems the popular opinion is it's mostly bloat, just like the rest of the full suites out there.

    Is there any guide for tweaking/optimizing performance? I see all these setting for HIPS, cloud, etc. and have no idea if any of them are even essential.

    All you need is the AV. It has a built in HTTP Scanner so it will intercept any malicious connection or download and block it before it even stats. Why get the Internet Security and have to deal with headaches of apps reporting no connectivity and having to mess with rules and what not. The Windows Firewall + NOD32 is all you need.

    Here is what I do:

    Install NOD32
    Go to settings, Malware Scans , Removable Media and select Do Not Scan. No need to keep prompting you to scan a USB drive every time you connect it. If it had a virus then it will be neutralized upon access anyway..

    Also go to Interface at the bottom and disable the splash screen.

    Finally, run a full scan of your computer then reboot.

    That will allow it to whitelist all files so they won't be scanned again if their file hashes haven't changed which greatly improves performance.

    One more thing, go to the Exclusions, Performance Exclusions, and add Steam and Origin if you had that installed to it so games won't be scanned after the initial scan. I do this for most my safe apps to ensure no performance loss as I know they're safe/legit.

    Thanks.
    ESET really changed the settings since I last tried the trial version a month or 2 ago (real time and machine learning?)
