    My NOD32 license expires in October, but I'm thinking of just uninstalling it and going with free AV, Avast 4.8. My reason is the reported problems in v4 of NOD32. Do I want to keep running an older version (3.0.684) which has less features than v4, when I can get the most up to date free AV from avast:

    I don't know if both AV's have the same features, but I'm also concerned if the quality of protection would be almost the same.

    The only simple answer is to try another program and see if you like it, and if it fits your needs.

    Remember though, no one program will give you 100 per cent protection.

    Also, regarding NOD32, there are more satisfied users than unsatisfied. Are you worried about 'reported' problems, or are you experiencing problems?

    If you personally haven't had a problem, I'd stick with Eset. If you want a free program, then you have your answer.

    i think you should try version 4 of eset nod32 before trying anything else.
    if your happy with eset nod32 then try version 4. everyone's experience is different. when i had a quick trial of eset nod32 4 i had no issues.
