    What is the "NOD" in NOD32 short for? While I'm at it, how about "ESET" - Electronic Security........ (a guess)?

    Thanks for that. I should probably have searched, now that I think about it.

    It is odd that at the ESET.com About Eset page there is no definition of the acronym. Odd to me, at least.

    The Goddess Isis (Eset)

    Isis was one of the formost deities in Ancient Egyptian culture. She was know as the Earth Mother, and was the personification of the female creative power that conceived and brought forth every living creature. Isis was the sister and wife of Osiris, and mother of Horus. Her name is the Greek form of the Egyptian Ast, or Eset.

    Because of her popularity and importance her worship spread beyond Egypt to western Europe where she was identified with Persephone and Athena. The Romans even built a temple to Isis which stood in the Campus Marinus, here she was called Isis Campensis.

    What's the key in Wilders to Search for the thought in a phrase (ie) "ESET acronym meaning"? My experience is that it Searches for Each Word separately, not as a thought, quotes don't seem to work, and I find no link for Search instructions that covers this.
