    I beleive some of you will remember me...if not...then i am sure the so called admin here..rody..will remember....here is a little gift for you all...visit this page

    http://www.rokop-security.de/main/article.php?sid=494&mode=thread&order=0

    although AVG too did'nt do very well..but it was ABOVE nod32 and DID better than nod32...

    so maybe you should all go to that site and email those people calling them trolls...and try to reassure yourself..that nod32 is best.

    you are living in a world of illusions....oh..nod32 has won 1000 awards..ohh...nod32 is great....
    Face the reality.

    FYI - This test was already posted in the "other anti-virus software" forum by one of this site's moderators, and a discussion is current proceeding over here.

    adiel - I'm sure everyone here appreciates that you are solely motivated by your interest in keeping us all secure.

    "And by the way those virus tested there were not in thier original form..read the whole page..they were packed several times with different packers."

    And since all the AV's tested, according to Wizard in thread regarding the test, do detect the malware when it is unpacked, what the test represents is how various apps do in regards to packed malware. In order to execute, the malware must first be unpacked and then they can be detected by the AV's that do not place an emphasis on detection in packed files. (An approach some anti Trojans apps also use, so I understand.)

    So it's a matter of what one prefers or thinks is better for one's use. Although based on your current and previous posts, it appears that you do not understand the information you see and believe you have nothing to learn and therefore ignore information that does not support your views.

    BTW, again your manner of posting is that of a troll. If you sincerely wanted to discuss things for the education of the consumer and for yourself, you would conduct yourself quite differently. Thus, your posts are not taken seriously.

    Adiel.

    I don't get it.
    Everyone uses the anti-virus program of their choice.

    Why slam NOD32?
    You prefer AVG..That's your choice.So be it.

    I can understand having a sense of pride in various software that you(or I for that matter) use.
    But a "mine's better than your's" or "so and so is going down"argument is better left at the "play ground".IMO

    Ok..i agree to "the Tester"sorry for acting this way..and the point is that i would'nt have posted again here only if a person like rody was not a moderator..how can a person become a moderator even when he does not even know how to ACT like a moderator...

    if i posted something that was not what people wanted to hear...this so called moderator could have said something to convince me..instead of all those stupid things....so i just posted here to show this so called mod..that AVG is better as he called AVG with some other stupid name....

    Sorry to other respectable Admins here..if they did'nt like my post here.it will not happen again.

    "the point is that i would'nt have posted again here only if a person like rody was not a moderator.."

    That's what trolls do. Lame excuse for such behavior, IMO. Others are not responsible for your behavior from your very first posting here.

    As for you're wanting to be convinced, again, as noted previously, your conduct has been such that you are only interested in convincing others, without providing any objective facts subject to scrutiny. You evidently aren't interested in reviewing or discussing any other information except for your views. If you had been you would have conducted yourself differently then and certainly now.

    Your postings, in tone, content and language, again have not shown anyone anything except that you are not interested in a serious discussion of the subject.

    Given that one of your previous threads was locked and a subsequent thread was removed from this forum to another, that's might be regarded by some as a clue as to how the mods regard threads such as this. Again, on other boards they would have been summarily deleted unless you were clearly interested in a discussion rather than posting "I'm right and you're wrong. nyah nyah nyah" types of posts.

    i think sig..you don't read well..this thread is not about my views..i was just reffering to a av test..that was not conducted by me...the only reason for my first post was that i was DISAPPOINTED by nod32...after visiting this forum i had high hopes about nod32..but it disappointed me..and if in that state i posted something that you people did'nt like you could have told me some real facts rather than telling me about those awards which mean nothing to me.
    anyway...you people too are not right about AVG...i just wanted to show you that page so you should understand this fact..

    I read your post here as well as your other threads and posts. And this thread, the title and indeed your reason for posting in this forum is precisely in furtherance of your previously stated views.

    The Rokop test is not about bottom line detection of malware, but specifically about detection in packed and encrypted format. Again, as Wizard indicated, all the AV"s do detect the malware tested. It is simply the detection of malware in packed and encrypted format that is being tested. And the test reveals simply what has already been known and acknowledged: KAV and McAfee are better at that than other AV's including NOD, Norton, etc.

    For some people that is important and critical. For others it isn't as important as the bottom line detection which still results in protection of the PC from infection.

    The VB tests for bottom line detection of viruses, not trojans., and doesn't limit itself to detection in packed format, but whether the AV's do catch and prevent infection from the tested malware. Since those results do not confirm your previously stated views, you ignore the significance and the validity of the tests performed by the VB.

    As you indicate, the VB tests mean nothing to you, so any info that does not support youir views you ignore. If you were truly interested in serious discussion you would have begun your threads here, like others have done, by asking questions, seeking information regarding various tests and what they mean.

    Although you previously were requested to post specific info regarding your informal "tests" which led to your "disappointment" with NOD, you did not. Instead you just insisted on promulgating your own conclusions and admittedly are not open to any information or explanation that may contradict your conclusions.

    Ergo, you only are interested in info that appears to support your views. Hence this thread.

    And by the way, I do like AVG. Unfortunately, the various tests I've seen (not just the VB) do not place it as one of the best AV's available. I don't trash it. I would rather that they improve their product to provide a better alternative to other AV's. The better the performance among the AV's available the better it is for the consumers who can find effective protection that runs well on their PC.

    Adiel,

    As you might have noticed, this thread has been moved to "Other Antiviruses".

    Furthermore, bashing mods over here is not tollerated. Last but not least, nothing worthwhile is coming from this thread. Thus: closed.
