    Out of these two which would be your pick. Also which one would have the better detection rate and malware detection rate as well. Also out of the two which one will be lighter on resources.

    Norton has a slightly better detection rate. however nod32 is lighter on resources, has better heuristics, faster scanning speed, more frequent updates, and doesn't have that ugly yellow gui that norton has.

    this forum is biased!
    i agree, nod32 here.

    but how can nod32 say "best detection" in their manuals and i think its even on the website.

    Symantec. My symantec corporate updates sometimes three time a day. I figure that should be sufficent to keep up tp date.

    Not on my machine I am afraid, it's also about 2/3 times daily. I guess I have another NOD32 then.

    Another vote for NOD. In our corporate environment, we have to clean up machines that were protected by the NAV corporate client - especially spyware and other malware. NOD blocks many of these same infections that NAV is missing . Bicker all you want about tests and ratings. What matters to me is what we actually see in our environment. In our environment, NOD is providing better protection.

    System resources is another plus for NOD. The NAV corporate client is pretty light, but NOD has it beat, especially when performing scheduled scans in the background.

    The real kicker for us is support. I think we could go to the nearest bus stop and pick the first random person we meet and get better support that we get directly from Symantec. Unfortunately, that seems to be the case for many of the formerly good products that Symantec has swallowed up.

    Since costs are also generally in NOD's favor, our organization has concluded that it is time to say farewell to our old friend Norton and move forward with NOD.
