A security suite usually comes in with an antivirus, an antispyware module and a built-in personal firewall. This test was carried out in a simulated environment which is identical with the running environment of most commonly used applications. The tested software had been installed on a clean operating system that was cloned and restored after each test. All security suites were configured to use their default settings, updated online and left untouched for 24 hours before they were tested in the virtual machine that had been unconnected from internet. PC Magazine editors made the following post-test remarks on ESET Smart Security, ‘its outstanding performance lies in its swift installation process, tiny footprint and integrated functionality in line with the level of protection it delivers.’
