    I tried to scan my computer with NOD32 and BitDefender. NOD32 found one trojan and BitDefender found 2 false positives (it said JS.Trojan.Downloader.IstBar.A - but that files are clean) Here you can see how fast is NOD32 and BitDefender:
    NOD32 - 00:39:09
    BitDefender - 01:31:45

    NOD32 is really great antivirus.

    All AV's have false positives at some time.
    NOD32 faster than Bit, confirmed.

    So? People praise NOD32 like it's god of all antiviruses. Well wake up,NOD32 can aswell have false positives as any other antivirus. :rolleyes:
    Although i agree it's very fast.

    It churns them out like daily updates. :D

    When I used it the only thing I liked about it was it's speed. Other than that I could do without it. It's terribly overrated. Frequent false positives and more than a normal amount of missed viruses, trojans, etc. were the norm with it IME. How it gets good tests scores is beyond me. I'll stick to real world use/experience -vs- any test. Kaspersky, Dr.Web, AVAST, McAfee, F-Secure and MKS are all much better IME. Even Norton, believe it or not, was better IME. I recently tried BitDefender and I had high hopes for it, but I was not impressed.

    NOD32 found a copy of Win32/Exploit.MS04-028 trojan. Which I checked on web. It was not a false positive. Of course, every antivirus has false positives...

    No I mean IME... in my experience, not IMO... in my opinion.
