System Requirements for Version 6 ESET Endpoint Security/ESET Endpoint Antivirus (default product settings)

• 32-bit (x86) or 64bit (x64) processor, 1 GHz (see Note 1) or higher

• An operating system and the required service pack supported by the chosen ESET product version installed
• System requirements of the operating system and other software installed on the computer are fulfilled
• 0.3 GB of free system memory (see Note 2)
• 1 GB of free disk space (see Note 3)
• Minimum display resolution 1024x768
• Internet connection or a local area network connection to a source of product updates

Notes

(1): For Windows XP operating system, the minimum processor speed requirement may be lower.
(2): On a clean computer, the product might use memory that would otherwise go unused on an infected computer or when huge lists of data are being imported into the product (for example, URL whitelists).
(3): The disk space needed for the following features:

  • Downloading the installer
  • Installing the product and keeping a copy of the installation package in program data
  • Backups of product updates to support the rollback feature

ESET might use more disk space under different settings (for example, when more product update backup versions are stored, memory dumps or huge amounts of log records are kept) or on an infected computer (for example, due to the quarantine feature). We recommend to keep enough free disk space to support the updates of the operating system and for ESET product updates.
