    F-Secure is an excellent choice for robust machines.I used the trial version of F-Secure AV 2005-it was great in detection,but slowed my PC patently.It eats a huge piece of recources.Though if your comp is a fancy machine-it is a good choice.
    Nod32 ,judging by all advice, is very light.So the option is up to you.

    I havent tried F-secure, but i strongly recommend NOD32.
    Take a look at NOD32 forum. All the members there help each other.

    Thanks

    Talking about the overall, I prefer NOD32 because of is speed and configuration.

    Agains't virus, F-Secure use the KAV definitions, so it have better detection rate, but the NOD32 heuristics are much better... ;)

    Go to AV Comparatives web site, click on "Comparatives", select test number 4 - "Retrospective/Proactive Test November 2004", and there you will see results for yourself.

    AFAIK, AV-Comparatives doesn't test multi-engine programs and I believe one of F-Secure's engines is a dedicated pro-active engine, so you won't find that tested on AV-Comp.

    I trialed F-Secure for about three months on a 1 GHz AMD, 512 mb ram 2100 box with no slowdown or drag. I saw no performance hit whatsoever.
    And as already stated it uses KAV's definitions, so that speaks for itself.
    NOD may have better heuristics but it still misses a lot of trojans as witnessed by monitoring Jotti's site). Also documented on this forum.
    None the less F-Secure does cause a slowdown on some boxes so I suggest you trial both and decide for yourself which one you want to use. Both are excellent AV's.

    You can go to AV-Comparatives, then Comparatives, and select the separated test of other products... ;)

    Did you also saw the Retrospective/ProActive Test, to see that NOD32 is the best in this area?

    yes nod32 is better than kav a little bit ,but what about fseceur ?
    fsecuer use three engines so dose this make fsecuer stronger than kav in Retrospective/ProActive Test ??or stronger than nod32 ?

    also rember they use old antvirus like nod32 2.000.9 and kav 5.0142

    also why they have not use kav pro because its stronger than the normal kav in riskware
    ?

    Just wait other 7 days you will know it ;)
    ok, I tell it now: it's nearly practically the same.

    it is the same (i tested it too), kasperskylab told me to list that version of kav.

    You can see the AVP engine but the other two engines are the creation of F-Secure. Since the F-Prot engine is no longer used, you're left with the Orion engine (purely heuristic) and the Libra engine. I haven't seen any info on these two on av-comparatives. :)


    EDIT: missed the post above, makes mine irrelevent :)

    I think that the topic is about NOD32 and F-secure. Not about KAV.

    im very happy to talk with AV-Comparatives.org creator WOW :eek:

    i have some prove about the riskware

    i have test both kav an kav pro and this is the result

    kav pro

    http://www.upfiles.com/upfiles/upload/82-1116958276.png

    http://www.upfiles.com/upfiles/upload/82-1116958282.png

    found 26 reiskware


    kav

    http://www.upfiles.com/upfiles/upload/82-1116958292.png

    found only 2 riskware

    i think riskware database in PRO is bigger than normal kav
    also i decover the (kav Mp3 beta ) is better than normal a little bit but the PRO is best in RISKWARE

    Maybe I have to remind you that things likes jokes, simulators, tools, etc. are not included in my test sets. ;)
    The riskware database is the same. In February KAV Pro could not use the extended databases; that was possible with the next version released.
    Did you use the extended databases for KAV too?

    F-Secure is more for corporate users. (takes up more resources, but not necessarily more secure than NOD32.)

    NOD32 has advanced heuristics, one of the best in the world.

    F-Secure uses 2 to 3 different antivirus engines, so it may be more secure against relatively older viruses/worms. (I'm not sure if F-Secure uses heuristics, another member has to confirm that)

    If you're looking for something better detection-wise, I recommend Kaspersky 4.5. (No ADS)

    If you're looking for something that has adequate detection and is light on your system resources, try NOD32.

    Ab 97% = Advanced+
    Von 93% bis 97% = Advanced
    Von 87% bis 93% = Standard
    Unter 87% = nichts
    Unter 85% = darf man nicht teilnehmen

    Is this right, IBK?

    This will be excellent for heuristic.
    Or are there other crterias for heuristic?
