    After using NOD32 for a year and some minor issues with it so I moved to Kaspersky for a year and had no problems with it but it slowed my computer a little but I could live with it. I am back to NOD32 and so far I have not had one problem with the new version and my computer is faster compared to KAV. I am very happy with it and it will be for two years. I will only use NOD32 or KAV on my computer.:D

    I arrived at a similar conclusion. KAV made my PC 'sluggish'. What are you doing about a firewall?

    Although I had hesitated and tried other AV"s and suites for a good part of this year, I will renew my NOD32 license. Just cannot beat the configurability and th eperformance of this app.

    My question though is, with the coming suite whenever that is, what is best to do now, renew for 1 or 2 years? Will there be an additional price we will pay for the suite? I would think so. For now, I will probably renew for 2 years.

    I to am thinking of converting back. Avira has taken to long to add antispam and rootkit detection to their suite. Nod protects better.

    Most of the reviews I've seen regarding anti-spam in suites suggests it doesn't work very well anyway.

    suites should forget anti spam.
    spam should be dealt by your ISP.
    or mail provider.
    jeff your thinking of changing back to nod32 because its taking ages for them to put the antirootkit in.
    some people are moving away from nod32 because 3.0 isnt coming out for a while.
    my two fav av's are kav and nod32.
    kav doesnt seem to make my pc sluggish but then again i haven't tryed anything on this pc thats meant to be lighter so i wouldn't know
    also can you explain why you think kav isnt worth it?
    is it the price?
    or the program itself?

    No suite for me! Nod + Avg Antispyware (paid) is a very powerful combination and it runs like silk! As far as spam goes, I use Mailmoa, just view and delete at server level before getting your mail! Spamfiltering is a very complicated issue and the learning part of an Anti Spam program is just as complicated.....every spam mail is different and I find it no use trying to train any Anti Spam program or module, as you'll be training all day long. Just view and delete at the server and it works!

    Gents,

    Please refrain from "other software bashing". Apart from that: AV comparisons overall do have their on spot over here - and this one isn't it.

    Comments edited, sorry Paul. Lodore, all are good, but still feel right now that Nod provides the most bang for the buck.

    I have a Watchguard firewall router so I don't use a software firewall.
