Last Customer Reviews: Windows Defender vs Eset

Jake
I just completed my upgrade of the Windows Defender anti-virus. I must say, it is cool, but I can hardly tell the difference between the versions.. Good firewall service but not so user-friendly interface.
joseph
Windows Defender will immediately scan any external device that is placed on your computer, it is a nice idea, but then I think the developer should upgrade the software to identify devices that it has previously scanned, so it doesn’t keep scanning a device more than once daily. My own thoughts tho…the firewall service is also commendable.
jenna
I am so happy to have this software. Free and I have no viruses! However, my laptop overheats from time to time...
Jackson
Its scanning process is fast. Using it is simple and easy while the real-time protection keeps my system safe. I do not need anything else.
Liz _the_rogue
Very easy to use. Except for security features, they also provide gaming mode.
William
