You could consider using the free 3 month trial of Bitdefenders top package after it expires you can just make another trial.

I know its kind of cheating and you have payed for Eset for years so don't expect you to change even if it saves money, so my post is for other users who may not want to pay for something that they don't need to.

3 Months Free Bitdefender Total Security 2020 - Multi device.

Well Norton for 10 devices at £25ish isn't that pricey either. Just don't renew via Symantec, get a new code then use chat to add new license to existing period.

I've not had problems but I know others have, that can be said for any solution.

True, but people still pay for things even when there is an easy option not to.

Still using Bitdefenders 3 month trials for their top package, I just signup again every 3 months.

I'm like Maggy. I've used Eset for years and have no intention of changing.
