    I"ve recently tracked Norman updates and they are really huge. They seem to improve a lot and to become a big player in AV companies endagering Norton, KAV, McAfee, etc. :D

    I don't have it installed but does someone know how many signatures does it have in its database ? I haven't seen this info on their website.

    They have also good heuristics and viruses in database are not an indicator for its detection rates but I'm just curious. :D

    Thanks! :)
