I know this post won’t make me popular, but in all fairness, people should be able to read about the mess that NOD32 caused on my computer. I’ve used Norton for years, and like others, was fully aware of how much it slowed the system down. I read glowing comments about NOD32 and decided to give it a try with the 30-day trial. I installed it and made sure all the options for protection were turned on. Biggest mistake I ever made. One week into using it, a link from Google took me to a site that made NOD32 light up. It warned me numerous times about viruses and Trojans, and reported that they were terminated and moved to quarantine. I quickly closed the web site and went to look in quarantine. Nothing there. Hmmm. I began getting pop-ups, couldn’t open I.E. without it taking me to a hijack site, began getting bogus icons in my system tray telling me I had a virus, etc. etc. NOD32 did not stop any of these threats even though it reported that they were stopped. Obviously something went wrong, I’m sure that is not normal for everyone. But nothing in NOD32 reported that its ability to stop threats wasn’t working, or that there was an error in the program. I realize that all the great reviews of NOD32 must be there for some reason, but in my experience it is one of the worst pieces of software I ever tried. What bothers me the most was that it DETECTED the malware, and REPORTED that it was terminated and quarantined. It actually did neither. I couldn’t get it off my system fast enough. I reinstalled Norton and began what would be many hours of clean up. Norton may be slow and hog resources, but at least it WORKS. All in all, there were 6 viruses / Trojans detected. Norton was able to remove 4 of them, the other 2 I had to hunt down and remove manually (Yazzle). If NOD32 works for everyone else, that’s great. I can only tell you about what happened on my system and warn others that there is a chance it will happen to them. I’m not a computer novice. I’ve built my own systems for years, and am well acquainted with Windows idiosyncrasies and numerous areas of software and hardware troubleshooting. And I can definitely say that NOD32 will never touch my system again.
