    Ahh in an utopian system I wish that we could use the KAV X_Bases along with NOd32. That way we would have the low system impact, high heuritic detection and amzing malware converage.
    I am not saying that NOd32 has bad malware coverage all I am saying is that every other AV's coverage pales to KAV's X_bases coverage.
    Now to have it all.....sigh.

    How does NOD32's malware stack up against KAV?

    I am moving this thread to the other antivirus forum as it is not strictly a NOD32 support question.

    Against KAV X_bases? I give Nod32 about 30% lesser detection.

    Some people have gotten KAV to install on the same system as NOD32.. the trick seems to be to install KAV first and disable all resident monitoring.. although doing that may be somewhat of a trick.

    You can, however, get the eScan Toolkit, which is a free KAV clone, although it doesn't do 'cleaning', so you'll have to remove anything it finds manually.. but it is good for second opinions :)

    You CAN still get the free version that CLEANS ....... as posted by Firefighter in another thread. ;)
