    Yes is it not a shame our Anti-Worm programme cannot even deal with viruses much and our Anti-Trojan programme cannot even deal with most adware and all our Anti-Spyware programmes cannot even start to aid against certain other kinds of malware?

    Yes we all would like to see just ONE programme "do it all" but until then we must use a layered approach to security. It is good to hope and root for our favourite programmes to do more than they started to do when they were created but developement comes slowly and surely. Some programmes have dropped out of developement and have all but disappeared and some programmes have continued to be developed to be able to do more than just one task.

    May the developers of every good security programme continue to advance on the war against all malware!

    Semper Ad Fundum!

    Let me add the site owner/tester Roman Kopecny has stated as well, he never ever encountered an antivirus being able to detect merely using Advanced Heuristics parameter an can of worms - even non-databased ones. No further comment needed ;)

    Hi Qsection(before you go off on one I do like Nod)
    The problem is the Nod web page gives the IMPRESSION that Nod DOES protect you from the threats listed(Eset aren't the only vendor at fault in this way!).
    Its about time ALL the vendors CLEARLY indicated the limitations of the software they sell/produce so Joe Bloggs computer user is clear what he is buying

    since there are two threads up and running coping with one and the same issue, I've closed this one. Please continue the discussion over on the other existing thread over here.

    regards.
