No Security Suite is 100%. Personally I have been using Eset for over 10 years on around 10 machines and never had an infection. Maybe I am just lucky but I doubt that. Common sense is also an important ingredient in protecting yourself.

Same as alanrwood. have used it for about 5 years without getting any infections. Mind you I also have Malwarebytes and Emsisoft as well.

I usually find if any problems 1 of those three security programs will jump in and stop anything downloading on to my computer.

Also had a big update to it after the latest W10 update was installed. had to reboot the computer for eset to update fully.

That was only last week so maybe if there were any problems with it that new version of eset may have sorted any problems.

Yes I agree with you both. Nothing is foolproof. Possibly that update has has corrected things.

"Nothing is foolproof."

Ain't that a fact, as John Wayne used to say.

I have used AVG Pro version for years - nothing else at all - and like alanrwood my machines have remained infection free. I couldn't agree more with his statement about the importance of commonsense where computer security is concerned.
