    ...for the 64-bit version?

    Seems like it was named NOD32 to proclaim it was above the 16-bit programs a few years ago. So why wouldn't they call the 64-bit one, NOD64? {shrug}

    To be honest with you I have mused about that a few times my self, I think it would be neat to call the x64 version NOD64. :cool:
    Even though the only 64bit part of the x64 version is the gui, correct me of I am wrong, the rest of the program is 32bit.

    I believe you are correct. They should consider an actual 64 bit veresion.

    Hello,

    My understanding is that there is quite a bit of brand equity in the NOD32 name.
