As a result of this, many companies thwt specialize in security threats of this kind decided to go mobile with some of their products. One such company is ESET, which is the maker of the largely popular NOD32 anitvirus, which is a PC based program, which unlike most antiviruses out there, is almost completely silent and has very little impact on your computer’s performance.
