ESET Beats Microsoft to the Punch

ESET Beats Microsoft to the Punch

I recently got a new MacBook Pro and set up Windows 7 and ESET Smart Security on it. This morning when I started the computer ESET Smart Security notified me that my operating system wasn’t up to date. This was a bit of a surprise because I updated everything when I installed the operating system.

It turns out that ESET Smart Security detected that Windows Defender’s definitions were out of date before Windows even knew about it! Was it a simple timing fluke? I’ll have to wait and see if that happens more often. It may be that ESET Smart Security makes Microsoft’s Windows Defender better :)
