    I use NOD32 by itself, why not KAV with Ewido if you like Ewido?

    You'll get various answers...some like myself only run one product, others like a layered approach if they're not bothered by some slowdowns, others like a super duper extra multi layered approach.

    Kind of "Whatever floats your boat".

    How about just Nod32, or add Process Guard 3 to the mix and you'll have some impressive protection.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    If you use KAV, you could always use their extended database, which will give you added protection against adware and spyware threats that are not included in the standard set.

    If I use KAV with extended database I won´t need Ewido?

    By using KAV you loose the http scanning that nod32 has.
    If KAV was so perfect that no other anti-spy software needed, then ......

    Whether you choose Nod or Kaspersky, and choose to combine it with Ewido, you'll end up with a topnotch virus/trojan defense.

    Btw. Since the http scan was mentioned, you should know that Kaspersky 2006 will have this, well actually it has already if you choose to try the beta of it, in which case you could have a free anti-virus solution until around jan/2006 which is the date on the roadmap to the official release ATM.:)

    Check out: http://www.techsupportalert.com/free-vs-paid-av.htm

    The author never makes the comparison you ask about, but seems to prove that 2 or more (AV+AT, etc.) are almost always better than 1 (AV alone).

    His best results were achieved combining NOD32+Ewido+CounterSpy.
