    How is F-Secure 2006 compared to KAV 5 and NOD32? Does F-secure use same signatures of KAV 5? How is F-Secure heurístic engine, is it good? And what about the F-Secure internet security 2006´s firewall?

    Maybe you should also have a look at the comparative tests at Especially I'd like to bring into your attention the retrospective tests where you can see how your AV protects you against new threats when there is no signature added yet.

    I have lics for all three + Norton.

    I currently use NOD on my main machine - KAV on my media server - Norton on my Dad's machine - F-secure not using at the moment - had a few probs with 2006 - F-secure were kind enough to give me a new lic - so that the licence does not tick away.

    I probably like KAV best.
    F-secure is quite heavy but I like product a lot - support is excellent - equal / better than KAV - never contacted nod so can't say. F-sec is quite intrusive and picky about other apps in stalled from my experience. I probably have more installed thna most - PG - Online Armour - RegRung and Outpost - variuos proxies

    NOD seems pretty good to me - very light - potect offered on web pages seems more active than - KAV or Fsec. I pt a NOD trial on while I was having Ffec probs and bought it:-* So I guess that says something
