    Hi

    I presently have Norton, but after some support issues, I have decided to switch.

    I saw some postive comments here and decided to take a closer look at NOD32.

    I saw info on http://www.av-comparatives.org/ in a forum and took a look at their findings. NOD32 did very well-scoring Advanced+ on the last 4 tests (1yr).

    If you go there and check online results-the Feb,2006 may not be up yet-but there is a link for their tables, where the final assessments for Feb, 2006 are listed.

    I am wondering about support. What have your experiences been? Do they have phone support?

    I am also wondering about the firewall to use with NOD32?

    Thanks for any info.

    Steve

    I think phone support depends on where you buy it from

    As far as I know Nod UK, Nod USA and Nod Australia all offer phone support to their customers

    you're right dvk. As for the firewall, it works very well with a lot of firewalls: ZoneAlarm, Kerio, Outpost....

    The best option in my oppinion is ZA + NOD32

    I've never been a big fan of firewalls, but have been playing with LnS recently, might give Kerio a shot.

    Thanks for the replies.

    pykko-Zone Alarm sounds good to me. I am wondering if you have it and if so, the free or pro. Money is not an issue as I contribute to freeware anyways. But I am trying to avoid conflict hassles.

    I am hoping that since the anti-malware I have is pretty well known there will be no major issues with Nod32.

    Also I saw a thread "installing NOD32 with Blackspear's extra settings"-is this worth me checking into further?

    Thanks again.

    The main difference is just higher active protection with Blackspear's settings, an "Indepth Analysis" does everything the same except for scanning emails. The most notable being image scanning in IMON, which has become somewhat of a serious threat in recent months.

    No problem :)

    The scanner is often poked at for being difficult to setup, but it uses a very good default setup. I use Blackspear's just because I'm insane :p

    WMF scared me, what can I say? :p
