hi, dont know if anyone has seen this, or is interested.....Computer Shopper mag did a group test which included nod32 v2. I think KASPERSKY won 'most desirable' and mcafee got highest number of stars.... - The designers behind NOD32 clearly didn't want to hide their clever anti-virus programming behind a dumbed-down interface. The package consists of a number of modules, and these are apparent in an unfamiliar Control Center. There are no namby-pamby Windows XP-style buttons here. Instead, you deal with Resident modules and filters. These modules are called AMON, DMON, IMON and NOD32, which didn't mean anything to us until we'd clicked on each one and saw labels referring to them as the Resident module, MS Office document monitor, Internet Monitor and NOD32 module. This last module is probably the most useful on a daily basis. It allows you to scan Click here to find out more! ADVERTISEMENT floppy disks and local hard drives and perform an 'in-depth analysis'. The help file does not explain what this is, but we found that it enables an Advanced heuristics setting that could potentially improve its ability to detect viruses and Trojans. NOD32 did well with our collection of files, missing only two of our Visual Basic scripts, which it allowed to run. This means that it's not the most accurate program on test, but it didn't do too badly. As the infected emails entered our test system NOD32 displayed some dramatic alert windows. It also halted our email download session when it detected each file. In our hurry to avoid a stalled download we chose the wrong option and, as a result, we downloaded most of the viruses. However, NOD32's Resident module caught them once we saved the files from email to disk. There is a setting that allows NOD32 to handle incoming email viruses automatically, without the interfering warning pop-ups. Perhaps Eset should now make the interface friendlier. Those with an interest in viruses will be pleased with this product's technical interface, but as it stands NOD32 reminds us of older Kaspersky products that were very competent at finding viruses but looked scary to newcomers.
