ESET NOD32 Antivirus starts to take care of you right after the installation procedure is completed. The first screen you will see is the activation screen. Make sure you select whichever option to ensure maximum protection. Then the program's interface shows you its real face. During the years that face has changed but all for good. Users can see the six main tabs organized in the left side pane, while their functions are shown with more details on the right. This mode is the standard one. There is an advanced mode too for those of you who want to have more options and features to work with.

The OK sign in the upper right corner opens a drop-down menu which has the current level of protection shown, log files link, statistics and more. From there users can temporarily disable the protection and open the program's advanced setup.
