    Vet is owned by computer associates, and Vet is a fair av. If you use the free eTrust promo av available here it is one of the dual scanning engines along with inoculateit eTrust. Not to be confused with EZAV is a corporate av and works pretty well.

    I have used the eTrust promo and I also have the eTrust commercial version 7.1. They are almost identical, there are only a few differences. the main difference is, with the commercial version you get free support. You also can get updates for life if you install it as client. with the promo you get no support at all.

    You realise the price on that page is Australian $$$?

    = about 66 US$

    Still expensive compared to say NOD32 which is about $AUD65 = about $US50.

    I used Vet for a few years & found it probelm-free, stable & effective; but I prefer NOD32.

    Been using Vet for a while now and have tried Kav and Nod32 beta.
    Kav may have the best detection rates but seems clunky with it's interface taking a while to open and I could detect an overall performance loss.

    Nod32 was excellent for scanning speeds with no noticeable performance loss and picked up all email virii.

    Vet is very similar to Nod32 in speed and performance and constantly receives VB's 100 award so I'm quite happy with it and as I'm a paid subscriber intend to stick with it.On my machine Vet has three running modules for a total of 16meg mem usage.

    Good to hear vet is working for you and your happy with it. Its my opinion what works best for you stick with it. Kav is a great AV but I have a older putter and it consumed to much resources. Etrust I have tried but not totally convinced. I am running Nod32 and love it :) Why? It works for me ...so the bottom line where your comfortable and satisfied go for it.

    I use Etrust 2005 and I like it, it's really simple to use, not much to modify but pretty good detection, I've used it for 2 weeks and so far system is clean, even with bitdefender as backup.
