Cool Features:

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.

Cool Features:

Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is a free antivirus download which works on Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Windows 8 has a feature called Windows Defender which is the same as Microsoft Security Essentials but you do not need to download it as it is built in. Microsoft Security Essentials is a plain solution which is better than nothing but in general is significantly outperformed by any of the commercial antivirus solutions reviewed on this website. MSE will detect some viruses but not near the success rate as other commercial solutions. We suggest Avira, Avast, AVG or ZoneAlarm free editions if you absolutely need free antivirus.
