So i installed this software in the hopes that once the trial 30 days was up i would buy it , But i have had nothing but problems with it .

I activated "Gamemode" but after every match on Battlefield 4 it goes back to normal mode causing Lag and horrible hit detection in game , I know this software was to blame as now i have uninstalled it my Lag has gone and my Hit detection back to normal .

I need a AntiVirus suite but i need one that does not interfere with my online gaming as that is what my machine is primarily for and its no slouch either.


Was particularly disappointing as this software states it is very good for gamers .

Hi the geekfreak :)

It's a known fact that the "Gaming Mode" of Antivirus programs usually cause a lot of issues in-game: lag, delays, FPS drops, etc. I personally never used the Gaming Mode in Kaspersky Internet Security, and everyone I know disable that mode when they play online games on their own Antivirus. So I would suggest you to do the same. Since the Gaming Mode of ESET doesn't do much when enabled (security wise), I suggest you to just leave it disabled, then play Battlefield and see if the performance is better that way.

See my comments in Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools as to why I recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro and Emsisoft Anti-Malware.
