    Here's the text from the Langalist newsletter:

    5) NOD32 Gets The Nod

    Hi Fred, I really enjoy getting your newsletter. It seems
    there is always something that applies to my daily grind.
    A couple of weeks ago I was tasked with putting a company wide
    antiviral program in place. We have around 15 PC's on a LAN
    and some of us pack laptops that come and go off the network,
    Some of us also do work related computing at home. The boss
    wanted all of these computers to have a common antivirus
    solution.

    Some of our folks have deemed Norton as too invasive and too
    much of a hog. Nonetheless I requested a quote for a 25 user
    license and 3 years of updates. The package priced out around
    $1900 for 3 years. I poked around in my Langa folder and found
    reference to the Eset NOD32 software. I downloaded the trial
    and ran it on my computer as well as my employers for a couple
    of days, right during the hot and heavy Mydoom period. He
    looked it over and checked it out on the web. In the meantime
    I asked for a quote for the same 3 year package. Eset came in
    at $632!

    I've since installed the software on every machine. Cross
    platform installs were not any problem and setting up an
    update mirror on our server was easy using the administrator
    version. On every install I ran an update and a full scan.
    NOD32 found and cleaned bugs on about 1/3 of our machines,
    most of which had been running NAV. One virus was a new,
    previously unknown, virus that NOD32 detected but could not
    clean. A call to tech support resulted in almost instantaneous
    connection to a support person who walked me through an
    advanced command prompt run of the NOD32 that was able to
    clean the critter.

    I highly recommend this software to anyone looking for an
    good, non-system hogging solution. Thanks for the tip! ---

    I agree, Kerry: Eset's NOD32 is an excellent tool. I use it on one of my
    daily-use PCs here. In fact, it's one of the three AV tools I recommend:
    NOD32 ( http://www.nod32.com ) or Norton AV ( http://www.symantec.com/ )
    for commercial antivirus, and Grisoft's AVG ( http://www.grisoft.com/ )
    for a personal-use, free solution.

    I think NOD32 is perhaps slightly better than Norton for raw AV ability,
    and it's not as porcine as is NAV; but Norton is a little more
    configurable, especially for Win98/ME. Grisoft's free AVG isn't quite as
    good as either Norton or NOD32, but you can't beat the price! <g>
    There are other good AV tools out there, of course, but those are my
    personal "top three" choices.
