    hi

    my license of nod32 will expire 15.09.2005
    i was thinking of letting you wilders members decide which one to get :D

    please post in this thread your opinion :)
    a couple of notes:
    pIII 900 mhz, 128 mb of ram
    kaspersky/f-secure/avk have been tried on this machine (licensed versions ) => slows to almost unusable so no kav based av's
    same goes for mcafee. sloooooow !!! so none of the above

    there is still plenty of interesting choices left even if we exclude those

    i will get a license for the winner (most votes )
    lets see how it goes. voting time a couple of days ;)

    Strange thread... why not continue NOD32 looking at your experience with others?!

    KAV. The numbers speak for themselves.

    OK, no KAV for you! BitDefender 9 Standard should fill the gap then.

    Why not take a look at F-Prot, it's cheap and very low-recource :)

    I would stay with NOD32 if it works fine on your system ;)

    If you want another options that are good and very light on resources, try Dr.Web, F-Prot and AntiVir ;)

    Please my friend, let well alone.
    Please.
    You'll regret if you change.
    Trust me, renew.
    NOD32 will be improved more and more (see latest AV Comparative test).
    Let well alone...

    I`d stick with NOD. However you could upgrade your ram,that`s pretty low...plus stick with NOD. ;)

    Well since you asked. :)

    DrWeb, very light and very fast and if you are fast you could use the 50% of migration offer:http://buy.drweb.com/togreen/.

    NOD32 is a very good antivirus, but i would reccomend having a backup scanner (NOD32 doesn't do amazing on the av-comparitives test) like BitDefender free 8.

    Of course the other one of those two scanning engines that were ALONE able to make a clean scan in VirusBulletin's WinXP test 06-2005, AntiVir with Beta Incremental VDF-Updates. :)

    Best regards,

    Strange question. Have you had any trouble with Nod? If no, then why let your choice be the choice of the majority here?? When the majority chooses DrWeb you will buy DrWeb... On what grounds?? That maybe 10 people choose it out of a group of 30 ... it clearly says nothing. Stick with your own experience. Trouble with Nod32? No. => keep it. (btw what other majority than Nod32 did you expect here...?:))

    Stick with NOD. One of the top AVs, you know it works well on your PC, and surely it will be the cheapest option as you will be just paying for a renewal. Anything new you chose you will be paying for the full product.

    I'm wondering if you were really posting this just to stir up the NOD die hards ?? :D :D

    Stick with NOD32 if you like it, or else buy BitDefender. :)

    If I read correctly, you just want to change. Get anything other than NOD32 which is light and good, and you'll be fulfilled.

    Another vote for renewing NOD32. If you insist on finding a suitable alternative for that system, short of increasing RAM:

    Authentium AV
    F-Prot
    Dr. Web

    I think Authentium is a bit pricey, though and its detection rate is probably similar to F-prot since it uses the the same engine.

    increase your RAM to at least 256, preferably 512. RAM is cheap and the first thing I would do to improve your operation.

    I've never used NOD, so can't comment. I have used KAV and loved it, although even with 512 RAM on my machine, it was slow. McAfee runs fine with 512 RAM and I didn't notice much of a hit. I'd vote McAfee.

    Nod32 or McAfee. McAfee 10 runs as smooth as NOD32 on my brothers' 2.5 Celeron with 256MB of RAM. But do the old "try it before you buy it".
    Bitdefender 9 is nice but runs heavier than McAfee 10 in my experience.
    KAV will drag your particular system. So will Norton.
    F-Prot is very light, but not full featured.

    Just a note: I tried Panda Titanium 2006 with the system above. It took about 3-5 min just for the computer to boot. This is the heaviest program I have ever seen. It is almost unusable.
