    The new Dr Web 5.0! Think about it, the http scanner(KAV) and great heuristics (Nod32) or that's what I think it has the ability to be. But, really from recent post I've read, 5.0 might take a long time before anyone sees it:(

    kav 6.0 with its improved heuristics coming soon.
    but nod32 has a http scanner as well.
    but I see your point drweb will be like the kid of kav and nod32.
    the only thing i dont like about drweb is the gui

    If NOD32 and KAV6 had a child, maybe they would name it NOKAD326. ;) :p

    Yes, I pray the GUI of the new 5.0 is redone all the way. I love dr web, it runs really good on my computer, so I want the best for it in future builds. It'll be nice if it looked as good as KAV than Nod32 though, it's funny cause Nod32 I see as the chick, and KAV as the male...which is scary:eek: *runs away*

    I choose kaspersky over nod32 because I prefer the interface and the reports.
    if dr web interface was better i might of got that instead.
    kav32 would sound better lol
    or kavnod

    i hope Dr. Web 5.0 also gets advanced+ detection rates.

    but like u said, its so far away from completion or even testing.

    Oh, I get out plenty prob more than you maybe. It's just I have a fairly new computer (my first) and I want to know more about security software to make sure it is well protected (that's why I'm always on wilders), plus I kinda want to think I have a sense of humor:doubt:

    I know the good habits of the 'parents', and I know the bad habit of nod32 (poor adding of malware submitted, unless it's wide-spreading) but what are the bad habits of KAV? :cool:

    We have a topic about the possible child , not about the parents *puppy*

    I second this. Almost hourly updates, excellent detection rates, outstanding heuristics and very good interface. Only thing thats missing is HTTP scanner which is in the works anyway.

    You can't discuss the 'child' without referring to it's 'parents'. Looking at the thread title I don't think I'm off-topic by asking about nod and kav. :blink:

    I guess:
    -KAV bad habits: poor heuristics.
    -NOD 32 bad habits: slow at adding undetected samples (I don´t agree with this)

    Folks, the perfect AV does not exists. It would be:
    -The heuristics of NOD 32, Antivir, Norman, VBA32 and BitDefender.
    -The database of Kaspersky, Symantec.
    -The system impact of NOD 32, Antivir, F-Prot, AVG.
    -The seamless operation of AVG, F-Prot, Avast.
    -The support of F-Prot, Dr. Web, NOD 32.

    heuristics in dr.web are good actually, so aint too worried about those.
    database could be better i agree with that,
    system impact, erm.. why is dr.web not on the list?
    seamless operation, again why is dr.web not on the list?

    have you even used the software, or just making comments on peoples opinions of the software?

    I haven´t used Dr. Web as real time AV. I´ve only used the free on demand CureIt and the browsers plug-ins.
    System impact also includes scanning speed and CureIt is slower than most AVs.
    As for their support, they address quickly the FPs, except very few ones.
    I think that most, if not all, agree with the rest of my observations. A bunch of tests, people comments and my personal thoughts/verifications prove them.

    My own casual ordering of current versions based on personal experience is F-Prot, NOD32, Dr Web in that order but reasonably closely spaced. I've never used AntiVir (there's no particular reason behind that), so I can't comment on that one.

    how does system impact come into the category of scanning speed?
    i always thought system impact was ram usage, cpu usage, simple computer slow downs or lack of in this case. :doubt:

    : If Nod32 and KAV had a child it would be... very expensive!:D

    Scanning speed and system impact are generally tested as separated items. I´ve joined them because of:
    -My convenience. I didn´t want to create too many items. For example, "seamless operation" includes GUI, update engine, stability, "noise" (pop-ups, confirmations, etc) generated, etc.
    -You could be using the on-demand scanner very frequently. For example, people that download big files (installers, ISOs, etc) often. Also, a slow on-demand scanner could interfere with your work during the scheduled scans.
