Like many security solutions, the primary function of ESET Nod32 is to detect and block viruses and other infections, a task it easily succeeds at.
This software can be run in two different ways: by a simple scan or by customizing your options and running a scan from the Control Centre.
The Control Centre gives you access too many great features and numerous scanning options including NOD32, DMON, IMON and EMON.
Here is a rundown on a few of the Nod32 scanning features:
- NOD32 - this component is the most powerful tool against viruses and other infections. It acts as the resident scanner, functioning in the memory of your operating system at all times.
- DMON - this scan thoroughly combs through office documents and files directly downloaded from the web.
- IMON - this scanner can be viewed as your front-line defence because it monitors web traffic using HTTP, FTP, SMTP and various Winsock protocols.
- EMON - this scanner is responsible for detecting viruses that may have originated from email messages.
While this is a highly advanced program, Nod32 allows you to get up and running with a simple installation.
