Hi, again. I posted a similar thread this morning. This is the original poster of that thread. I did not have the intention of starting an arguement. I was trying to decide on which product to purchase. I was very pleased with the speed of NOD32. Upon reading other forums etc., there have been comments that KAV takes longer to scan but does a good job. Since i found the support area of NOD32, I decided to ask the "horse's mouth" to get a straight answer from the source. From the comments that I have read since the thread was started, it seems Nod32 is specific on viruses. One of the most compelling items was that Microsoft was using it as one of their antivirus products. Thanks for you comments on you experiences with both products if you left a reply.
