I have licences for both Dr Web and NOD32, as the title suggests. I know there have been previous threads about these two products in the past which seemes to "dance" around the reall issues. In my opinion Dr Web and NOD32 are the best AV's in the market today, excluding KAV because of the insane resource erquirements of 4.x. I have heard that Dr Web is better for trojans and that NOD32 is better for ITW virii. Is this still the case. Something that does concern me is Dr Web doesn't have as good a record in terms of VB 100 awards. Since this award seems to be the bible, something of which everyone looks at, it concerns me. NOD32's record is evident and unquestionable...Dr Web's is lacking but is that because of false positives or because it failed to recognize something? As far as resources are concerned both use very little resources. Having used both products I can say there is very little effect on sysyem resources at all. The only question then, for me, would be which product offers the best overall protection. Both products scan incoming email, include both on demand scanning and on access scanning. Dr Web's hueristics are very strong, which is good and alsso a bad thing in term's of FPs. One thing I do like about Dr Web is that it scans everything being transfered via the internet. At least I think this is the case. It uses it's dwhook.dll to scan compressed archieves being downloaded. This is something I'm not sure if NOD32 can do out of the box. Also, Dr Web has everything in seperate parts of the product (scheduler, email scans, etc), NOD has everything withing one icon on the taskbar...the control centre. Both products are very good. I have licences for both and I am looking for the one I should use. I understand that the best defense is a layered defense but I do not want to use a AT because of it's impact on system resources. I want help deciding which one to go with. Any help would be appreciated.
