Eset has advanced parental control with the ability to block unwanted websites by category or individual websites. Their anti-theft feature helps you track down your laptop if it gets stolen which is definitely a unique feature. Another different feature of Eset is the webcam security. If a rogue program takes control of your webcam Eset will notify you of such a violation of privacy.
McAfee is a household name with several key features. Probably the most impactful feature is the money-back guarantee. If McAfee can't remove your infected virus you will get a 100% refund. Also very useful is the file shredder feature. Permanently delete files off of your PC for good. Provides protection against viruses, malware, ransomware and other online threats. How McAfee handles new suspicious threats is interesting. When McAfee encounters a suspicious program it sends data to the McAfee cloud to analyze. It will then log the program's behavior and roll back any vicious actions if the program is found to be a problem.
