Today I am going to share with you another antivirus also very well known, ESET!
This tutorial is applicable to ESET SmartSecurity 8, NOD32 8 Antivirus and Endpoint Security only.
This activation method is quite simple. You must install the trial version (unless you already have ESET on your Windows) of one product mentioned above, which you can download for free on oficial webpage. After that, you only have to download an activation toll which will activate permanently the software.
1- Where to download ESET?
ESET is available in many worldwide languages, it’s difficult put all download links in this post. The easiest way is to visit http://www.eset.com, it will ask your which country are you from or you’ll be automatically redirected to the page associated with the country you are in.On the top, you have some menus. If you are looking for SmartSecurity or NOD32, you must click “For Home“, there you will find options to download one of the mentioned products. However, if you are looking for Endpoint you need to visit business section by clicking “For Business“.
Once you download the setup file, run it to proceed with the installation. When done, move on to the next step where I will explain how to activate.
2- Activate permanently
As you can see, I have 31 days trial left.
Start by disabling the real time protection of ESET! For that, in the systemtray, right-click on ESET icon and Temporarily Disable ESET protection
Ok you are ready to download the activation tool here (no surveys)
Before you unrar it, add the file to the exceptions list
Unzip it. Run the file ESET ACTIVATOR.exe. All the activation process must be executed in Safe Mode, to be easier, the own tool can setup Windows to boot on Safe Mode by clicking Activate. A message will pop-up, click OK. Windows will restart in Safe Mode
Run the tool again, click Activate again. The toll will proceed with activation and will automatically restart (without Safe Mode)
ESET is activated permanently!!
