    Hello

    I've been testing antiviruses myself.
    I ended up using CA and NOD32.
    Now, CA needs internet connected PC to become active after rebooting while NOD32 does not.

    Does NOD32 provide protection (detect threats) for/from/through instant messengers (windows live messenger, yahoo messenger, skype, etc.)?

    Thank you

    Hi, worms spreading via IM protocols use sending link to download infected file. For download web browser has to be opened and web access protection will check downloading files. If you think files sending from user to user then yes, too. :thumb:
