    Hello,

    the well known av-test.org has made a test with 29 anti virus products. NOD32 has place 13.

    You can read the german test review here: http://www.pcwelt.de/start/software_os/sicherheit/news/91438/

    They tested for about a week 874.822 different viruses on 28 computers with a fixed AV database of August, 10th. They also compared the size of an AV database to the ranking and are saying, that there is almost no correlation.

    For those who can't speak german, the table results are well understandable. The last column shows the size of the AV database.

    Regards,
    Alexander

    Meh, things like this no longer bother me that much. Kudos to MS though. The test is being discussed here also:

    I expect this will be closed soon for that reason.

    seems NOD32 is going down all the time... many major players are moving ahead...
