NOD 32, does only good on one test, that is the VB test, I don't care for the test myself. NOD 32 is all hype, until it can compete with the big boys, on all tests, not just one VB.
If NOD 32 was more than just hype, you would see it kicking behind, on all tests, but do you? of course not. You see NOD 32's behind being kicked, NOD 32 could be a good product, and maybe in the future it will be, but not at this time.
When you see NOD 32 coming in the top 5 on all AV tests, Like McAfee, KAV, AVK, and so forth, then NOD 32 is no longer hype. VB results should be taking with a grain of salt, had the test been great as NOD 32 claims, NOD 32 would clean up on every AV test out there, they don't.
The author gears NOD 32 toward passing an easy test which is VB, That would be OK, for a few tests, but you must have higher goals, and not be afraid to compete with the big boys, on all AV tests.
I have read much of your rants against NOD32 today, on this forum and others. You are poorly informed regarding testing, if you think Virus Bulletin is the only tester to acclaim NOD32. I call to your attention the summary from PC Magazine May 2003 issue, translated from Spanish; "Eset NOD32 can be in a small amount daunting for novice users, but it is by a long distance the best choice of anti-virus for power users."
I am at this present time engaged in a comprehensive testing of many (15-20) anti-virus programs for my government's next year of license, and with +90% of testing completed, NOD32 is my currently first choice. (Yes, I am a REAL "Security Expert".)
You will advise me that the big boys like McAfee, KAV, AVK, and so forth, are superior in detection?

Virus Bulletin deserves its desirable reputation in security circles of being the global leader in honest and factual anti-virus testing, and I am always interested in its test results. I am never interested in results from the tests of GEGA-IT, with its undesirable reputation in security circles of amazingly always having in its possession many of mysterious undetected zoo viruses that no-one else has ever seen.
NOD32 is the only anti-virus which so far in testing has missed no viruses from MY collection, and it exhibits the smallest impact on our testing network of all tested. I will prefer to rely upon my own clinical test results and the unemotional advice of known and trusted experts in security circles... - Other personalized remarks removed - LWM
Whether or not I recommend NOD32 to my government remains to be seen, but my decision will not be influenced by you, neither should anyone else's decision be influenced by you.
It is YOUR ADVICE that should be taken with a grain of salt.
