Can I ask if anyone can advise in ref to ESET Anti Virus....
when I looked at it.... there are two options to use it for free.... as I think that I understand ..
one being a one off scan, that I think can be done direct in connection to their website...
and another option to have a free 30 day trail...
The 30 day trial seems a much better option...no doubt, but I think or if I recall from a past prior trial...I had on another computer ... that you have download the software..
and after I had used it.... what I found was that I was unable to delete complete files and it left something perminently on my lower right hand side icons.. that kept showing up when I as online..
I have never been able to get rid of it and it can be a pain and may be creating some problems when I now use my old laptop..
but if I recall.. it did do a very good job when I used it in finding viruses other Anti virus programs could not find..
I am not sure how the one off online scan may compare...I suspect it will help find viruses ok... and at least you wont wont have it left on ones Computer...
and which you use... I suspect that maybe if you have used either option before in your name or from your ISP... that it wont allow you to try it again...for free..
OR maybe it will allow you to use one of the other options out of the two that you have not tried before...
I just wondeed if anyone has any advice or thoughts on what maybe the best option to consider or if there is any other way to sign up for a 2nd free trial...if you have say used it with another computer in the past..
or maybe that only prevent a 2nd trial for a set period of time... for eg say 5 yrs ago... then they may allow you to use it again... or if you have changed yourISP since..
I think that they do require your real name and address details etc...
Also has anyone else found that they could not fully delete or remove ESET after the 30 day trial... or is there a way to do so later if one finds how to do it...
