    From my own experience, truprevent runs heavy where as Nods runs very light. But you may want to try yourself.

    Does Truprevent has a behavior monitoring in a virtual environment like NOD32?

    Panda has good detection but can bring your pc down to it's knees.
    This could very well have changed in the 2k6 release, but I couldn't see any improvements in the beta version from previous versions.

    NOD on the other hand is light as a feather, and most of the times you won't even know it's there. Out of the 2, I think NOD has the best proactive detection. Just look at the scores it get's when tested (not the 10 sample ones, but the 100k+).

    I myself went from Panda (3 year user) to NOD, and didn't look back once.
    NOD rocks. Simple as that :D

    Trueprevent 2006, good protection I think, but is it worth the extra 62 000/ 57 000 k on system ressources (just trialed it)... :( : it actually does slow down the computer, that makes a lot for an "additive" protection IMHO. But last review I saw did show it as very effective.

    There are large updates for it too: surprising for a behaviour-blocker app, but seems they want to be able to show the names of malwares TP could catch.

    Processes are very close to Titanium's, 9 total, and the WebProxy.exe is not compatible with Kerio yet. I gave up the idea to use it with a light/ free antivirus (could make a nice combo, if ever Tp was more light).

    I vote for Nod, and wish Panda will improve Tp's footprint for next year :D

    another vote for nod32. panda truprevent is just too slow for me and too many processes. it is somewhat effective tho. when i was trialing truprevent 2004 (v1.5) it did catch some partial malware or rather exploits (dcom, rpc)

    Personally I've had good experience trialling Panda on VMware. Unfortuantly I don't have the money to just buy a license for it and test it out.

    It anyone has a license for Panda (preferably the Titanium), and not using it anymore, maybe we can trade :) And I'll report it back here on Wilders' what my thoughts are...

    My list of to review programs is now: PC-cillin 2006 and BitDefender. Maybe I find some time late December. Right now I'm too busy :)
