what's NOD32? who can tell me something about it, thinks!
One of the best damn AV programs you can buy! You can also try before you buy at the site listed in the previous post. One months free trial with no strings attached - you get the full program.

Some nice info on Wikipedia:
"NOD32" . . . what does it mean ?
The very first version of what is now called NOD32 was created in Czechoslovakia in 1992 around the time the first computer viruses appeared.
At that time a popular TV series was being broadcast on Czech Television called "Nemocnica na Okraji Mesta" or in English, "Hospital at the Edge of the City".
The first computer viruses attacked disk boot sectors, which are located at the edge of a disk. An antivirus program could in a sense be considered a hospital ... "nemocnica" in the Slovak and Czech languages. The new antivirus program was named ?Nemocnica na Okraji Disku? ... which in English would read ?Hospital at the Edge of the Disk?. ?Nemocnica na Okraji Disku? was abbreviated to "NOD".
Today's NOD32 is, of course, many many generations on from the original NOD. The 16-bit version was called NOD-ICE and when the 32-bit processor appeared, a brand new program was created from the ground up to suit this new platform ... and ?Nemocnica na Okraji Disku 32?, or "NOD32", was born.
NOD32, the Next Generation is the latest evolution with new versions for most platforms, a new product for NAS, and a new centralised management console for network administration.
A spam post, surely?
