    Being that this board supports NOD32, I should know the answer but i'm looking for compatablility. I have decided to continue using/learning Outpost firewall (seems "infinitely" configurable - which I like and want to learn) but I want your advice on a suitable AV. Shall it be AVG or NOD32. AVG comes from the advice of someone very well known in the connection "speed arena" . But I do trust the advice of many - as you guys here have much experience as well - and this is your specialty - security. Thanks for your help.

    I've tested a lot of AV always with Outpost and doesn't have any problem...

    As you can see in my signature, I think that you already know my suggestion :p

    You run NOD32 and Avast? or you have 2 machines? The only problem i'm having is incompatability with EZAV and Outpost's log clearing.

    My active AV is NOD32 and the avast! is my backup AV, but I have the Script Blocker feature of avast! active until the NOD32 released the new beta version ;)

    When the Outpost is clearing the log, in my PC he takes only a few seconds...

    my problem is the fact that Outpost appears to be running high CPU when clearing log files - because AV is somehow hooked to it. It is fine unless i'm running another CPU intensive app - in which case has caused lock-ups on my desktop because of the "CPU battle" between apps

    I do not recall which AV but I tried an AV that was supposed to be quick but took 24 hours to perforn an on demand scan with advanced heuristics - it may have been Kaspersky or NOD32 or some other well known. I was told it woulld improve with subsequent scans but it never did,.

    I researched some old posts and found that it was Kaspersky and it took 10 hours not 24 but never improved
    This is why I gave up NOD32 - hopefully, it has impoved since? I was using IE when I picked this up and nod could not do a thing with it. i ended up with so many exe running - shown in my taskmanager - it took 2 hours to rid all of it.
    That's what I got for being naive and going to a stupid site like that. - to top if off with active X enabled.

    NOD32 and Look 'n' Stop work well together and both are extremely low on resources.

    Thank you Slovak, I appreciate your input. I'm, at this time, looking for a match for Outpost. I know that Look and Stop is a very good firewall - one that I have not experimented with as of yet. I have most all the others. Some day, I'll give it a "spin"
