    I've never really considered my online presence to be at a great deal of risk. The more I've learned about the matter, the more I became aware and decided to seek a means of security.

    First on the list was an AV. I've read countless articles in magazines, websites, asked online acquaintances, and posted on a few boards. I chose NOD32 if ya haven't guessed yet... :eek:

    I'm also considering purchasing Trojan Hunter and WormGuard to work in tandem with NOD32. I was wondering if this was a wise idea? Will NOD32 work sufficiently against trojans and worms on its own? Are there any conflicts that will come up from installing all these softs on one machine? Any other alternative suggestions (other effective low resource softs) for decent protection to work in conjunction with NOD32 in regards to trojans and worms? Or am I being too paranoid? I appreciate your feedback.

    Welcome ;) Good to hear you are taking care of defenses.

    There are far worse choices available :D

    layered defense - one dedicated software for one dedicated job - is the recommended way to go indeed.

    Worms: sufficient. Trojans: improving fast. Nevertheless, the layered defense approach as mentioned above stands - never put all eggs in just one basket.

    No conflicts to be expected ;)

    In case light on resources is an important issue indeed, you are most probably best served by BOClean IMO. If not, TDS and Trojan Hunter are to be considered.

    Not at all ;)

    regards.

    I have recently also joined the ranks of NOD32 users, and I am happy to confirm that my system has had no issues or problems and I run as well as Nod, TDS3, Wormguard, Process Guard, and Regprot. Everything runs fine and dandy .
