    Yea first it scores poorly on the av-test.org tests, and now av-comparatives. Eset is falling behind big time.

    To my best knowledge, we would have scored higher if our findings from the analysis of the test set were taken into account. It's still a subject of discussion with the tester.

    96,6% to be exact (if you try to compare with previous tests) - see notes in the report. From 97,7 to 96,6 is not " a big falling".
    @Marcos: Reported findings were taken in account. Further discussions please thru Richard per email.

    Why escuser you looking for? you do not all viruses (voluntarily certe) force detection thus feel!

    96 or 93% is important is eset 8th is not good! it should be ranked in the top 5

    (it is automatic translation sorry for bad english)

    So, I don't get it. Did NOD32 get 93% or 96%?

    I never expected NOD32 not to get Advanced+ certification and going down to the 8th place. something must be done.

    Those of us that have been around awhile have seen it before and NOD has always rebounded. They should have a smiley for a big yawn.

    I'm also staying put. Seven years without a problem. That says it all.

    I think I made myself very clear: What's up with AV-Comparatives

    :thumb: to Eset. I have my security settings as high as they can go and I regard NOD32 as the best AV software I have used.

    Unless of course you believe what's in the comparative and then it's not.

    However, I keep using NOD because for some reason, whether justified or not, it makes me feel as though my system is safe. I guess I'm just used to looking down and seeing a green icon.

    I do hope they improve in several areas:

    1) Customer service (via their website)
    2) Speed up submission additions
    3) Bump up detection a bit
    4) Wish they would add a full screen mode to ESS, where popups would take a break until you exit the full screen program.


    It will be interesting to see in which direction Eset heads.

    I don't believe they test Spyware.. at least I don't see a section for it in the list of samples unless its the OTHER malware. and if that's true those 13k of samples (assuming nod missed them all) against 1,096,202 malware tested. would not make a lot of difference. if those tests are right, NOD/Eset is above the 70k Mark for missed samples. from the graph in the test.

    I'm keeping NOD on the sideline myself because IT HAS and i'm confident will continue to make up any gaps exposed that might cause some concern. As a researcher having to live dangerously sometimes to follow the progressions of certain viruses, some really bad, it has rescued entire partitions where a virus distorted executables a couple of times in my testings and i hold high marks in support of NOD's cleaning potential, which is proven to me it can do well enough so long as the virus isn't a total hose job. This is in regards to file infectors i speak of.

    Thanks NOD
