ESET Smart Security 4 is an effective security solutions. As an added bonus, is easy to install and use, and doesn’t slow down your computer. And unlike some other suites, all of the tools within ESET Smart Security 4 look and feel part of the same program. For getting your anti-virus, firewall and spam protection tools in one box, ESET Smart Security 4 is a solid choice. But its overall malware protection isn’t as strong as Webroot’s Internet Security Essentials (WISE) and it has no parental controls or backup utilities.
