I am trying to decide whether to buy KAV or NOD and am excited that they both will have new version (hopefully soon). I have used both in the past and like both very much My questions regarding NOD are: 1. ESET used to say that NOD was not anti malware but antivirus? Has this changed? Suites aside, how good is malware protection? 2. What other products do I need if I use NOD (eg. antispyware, etc.) 3. In the AMON setting, under the security tab, there is an option to "load the file system monitor dynamically." That option is greyed out and I can't select it. What is it and should I be concerned that I can't select it? 3. Until version 3 is released, what registry protection should I use. I have been using MJ RegWatcher. Thanks Firecat, you just can't beat $29.50 for a two-year student discounted licence.
