    I'm disappointed with NOD32. Reasons:

    Program has conflicts with other programs
    Problems with component upgrade from 2.000.6 to 2.000.8
    Virus detection is not good as other AV (poor detection of trojans, adware and programs that auto-dial pron sites). I use other AV at work and virus detection is much better. Most important reason, why I wiil never buy NOD32 again!!!! :(

    IzrokK,

    Sorry to hear so - but no doubt that's your perogative, and yours only.

    as for:

    • incompabitlity with other software: question is wether or not this is due to NOD32, or other software;
    • you are perfecly safe using v2.000.6;
    • virus detection has been proven the best - just check the vurisbulletin tests. NOD32 is first and foremost an antivirus software. Other Avs will not perform better as for ITW viruses are concerned. In case you are looking for software that can handle it all (adware, dailers etc.) - there isn't software available performing a perfect job on all. layered defense is the best you can obtain.

    Take good care,

    regards.

    paul

    NOD32's heuristic is the best, it detect proactively new virus/worms/trojans and malware in general. Is also the more quickly scanning and use less resources than most.
    2.000.6 is a good stable version of NOD, ESET is currently testing the 9 for the release. NOD is also a easy to use product.

    I used Norton before Nod 32 and I had all kinds of problems with Norton.

    I am satisfied with Nod 32. :D

    It is one of many programs that I use for a layered protection of my computer. :D

    You can't expect that an AV should detect adware and dialers and stuff. You should use Ad-Aware or Spybot Search & Destroy for that and you should also use an anti-trojan program for trojan detection.

    An AV is for detecting viruses and if it detects the other stuff is just a bonus IMO.

    Since all has been said in the meanwhile, this thread has outlived its purpose.

    For that reason, the thread is closed.
