ESET NOD32 Antivirus 3.0.414 RC1

ESET NOD32 Antivirus offers superior, comprehensive protection, the fastest scanning throughput, and the least performance impact of any solution. Keep your important information safe & stay productive with peace of mind. Running separate applications for viruses, hackers, adware, and spyware can slow your PC, be difficult to manage, and provide questionable protection. Beware of large, bloated internet security suites that consume hundreds of megabytes on your PC. These typically exist because vendors have acquired products and 'bundled' them together. In contrast, ESET NOD32 was designed from the core as a single, highly-optimized engine that works as a unified Anti-Threat system to protect against a broad spectrum of malware. Viruses, worms, spyware, and other malicious attacks, which are constantly evolving. ESET NOD32 utilizes patent-pending ThreatSense® Technology to detect tomorrow's threats in real-time, by analyzing code execution for malicious intent - keeping you ahead of the malware-writers.

so much faster than kaspersky, loving the clean interface and intergration. this is tops!
im gonna trade in my kaspersky, no 2nd thoughts what so ever...cheers ESET

I had problems with 2.7 with Vista 32 bit, freezing occasionally.
I filed a support ticket and they said it was an isolated incident...
Now the beta release fixed that issue (of course there was no guarantee or support with the beta - back then), but I moved to CA 2007 simply because it doesn't give me any problems.

And I moved because I simply don't like any kind of support structure that tells me this is an isolated incident and there is nothing they can do about it...

Funny thing... Computer Associates got it figured out... <g>

Well, its kinda understandable, if you have a huge userbase, and you get what seems like an isolated case, where no other user has reported a similar problem, its unreasonable to devote resources to fixing that spesific problem. Especially with computers theres a number of reasons why something doesn't work that is completely out of a developers hands.

Luckily for you there was probably nothing wrong with your spesific setup and an issue probably with other more common symptoms was fixed that also involved whatever was causing your problems.

Oh, and i just love NOD32, tried it due to rave reviews all over and the fact i was getting tired of AV software the used huge amounts of resources, where clunky and buggy etc etc.(I mostly have experience with Norton and the like...) After trying NOD32 i never looked back. It just sits there quietly and politely in the backround and does its job. And only buts in when its got something important to say.

(Other AV's tend to be more like "HEY! hi! hello, yea, here i am, keeping you "safe". *flex fake muscles and polish flashy sunglasses* I'll be standing over your shoulder all the time and reminding you every now and again that I'm here watching you...)

i used to hate the fact that some AV's did that until my nod32 subscription ran out.. Windows security center had to tell me that there was a problem updating my AV definitions...

Lots of problems here--Running 64bit Vista.

LOL - really ??? you dont say ???

If youre running Vista 64, then I think alot of the problems are between the keyboard and the chair.

Still very unstable for me... I got tons of freezes and I had to disable the NOD32 service from safe mode in order to uninstall it... So back to 2.70 for now.

when the final comes out, i wanna see how it compares to kaspersky 7 .....

There's no contest here if you ask me...
I've been a 2 year user of KISS before I switched to NOD32 a few months ago.

* But I'm already at the point where I'm wondering myself: "why didn't I made this switch 5 years ago??"

--> For me it's NOD32 all the way!!

I used KAV for some time, but eventually switched to NOD32. Some programs conflict with KAV major time. Mainly problem on the side of these programs and not KAV. Other than that, KAV is much better.
