    As recommended by a friend, I was previously using AVG Free Edition so I purchased a one year license to NOD32 this morning and downloaded the software, configuring it as to the settings posted in a sticky in the forum.

    But does NOD32 really provide as good antivirus protection as ESET hypes it up to do? Is it worth paying for, because if not I won't renew next year.

    Thanks.

    Its the best one in my opinion. I have ran most all of them recently and only one came close in the performance department. It was Avira but it did not scan inside archives with the real time monitor like NOD 32's AMON does for me. No wonder it was light as a feather. I am back with NOD32 probably forever now. I have tried the rest, I'll stick with the best.

    This site might interest you: http://www.av-comparatives.org/

    Also you shouldve just trialed NOD32 first. That way you could evaluate on your computer before purchasing it.

    I personally think NOD32 is a great antivirus. Its light, scans fast, and certainly better than AVG free.

    It seems to popup a little dialog box in the lower right-hand corner whenever I'm loading webpages or something says it's downloading whatever at 4kb/s.

    I'm on dialup too.

    the answer to your question, is yes. You now have to have a little faith in the answer.;)

    Well, I have searched/researched all the "free" AV solutions available since 1995. Eset might not be the best, but you will search until your fingers fall off untill you find a better solution for base-line control. If you are looking for the total "best", it does not exist yet. "Life" will keep this from ever taking place, I posit.

    Nod32 is about as good as it gets. I'll let others pile on now! :D

    I live behind only NOD32, and, am so glad it exists! None Better! :D

    Quiet, fast, small, complete! What do you want? :doubt:

    I paid for my license, and, I will pay for its' re-authorization when this one runs out! "No Problemo!"
    Right now, these NOD32-People do know what they are doing. They do whatever so very will. Trust them. They keep you (and me) clean.
    Is not "clean" what we all search for?
    Best,
    Duncan

    I have tried many AV's and I must say that from personal experience nothing comes remotely close to the awesomeness of NOD. Its advanced heuristics and light footprint make it an absolute must to any user who is serious about security.

    I second that - I'm sure that you will get a LOT of similar opinions here. Many of us believed so much in the nod32 solution enough to become reseller! ;)

    This is IMON - the internet protection , which is set to Higher efficency level . Since you are on the slow dial up connection , you'd better turn to Higher compatibility

    Open Control Center -> IMON -> Setup -> "HTTP" tab -> Client compatibility and make sure all applications are set on Higher compatibility ; change the compatibility level by once clicking on it.

    Confirm with OK and Hide the Control Center ;)

    Why would I want to switch to higher compatibility because I'm on dialup? :/

    It will make your internet connection appear a lot faster whilst surfing. I wont explain how it all works - HiTech_Boy could probably do a better job of explaining :thumb:

    Besides, AMON will pick up anything bad - should an infection be attempted. You are safe. :)

    Honestly I don't see a huge difference in speeds of anything loading with maximum efficiency versus before I installed NOD32.

    Is this a seed to troll? This is a hangout of Eset users...asking if their preferred antivirus product is good/better will naturally yield a higher percentage of "Yes it's great" replies.

    "Is having NOD32 an advantage?" Advantage to "what"? It is one of the better antivirus products out there..along with Kaspersky, BitDefender, Antivir/Avira, etc. Having one of the better products, along with other common sense products and computer use...gives you an advantage over others who don't.

    So I'm a troll because I ask whether or not NOD32 is good?

    You didn't get the idea.:ninja:
    Go and ask in avira forum if antivir is good or in kaspersky forum if KAV is good , etc ...
    You will get the same answer...

    Nothing can catch everything, but in the years I've run both NOD32 and Norton/Symantec (on different computers), NOD32 has never let a virus slip by it, though it did happen once with NIS 2006...
