Re: NOD32 get's "Advanced+" in AV-Comparatives test May 2007 It never ceases to amaze me that hundreds of people in this forum do not get that heuristics is far more important than outright detection of known malware. If your system is clean, there is no malware on it by definition. What keeps your machine safe? The highest probability (by far) is that NOD32's heuristics will protect you. Do not be fooled by promotion of other engines-ESET's is far superior.
