    BitDefender is great and all but it caused problems with my Downloads... So I made the switch to NOD32.

    ALso if you go with BitDefender, get the BitDefender Internet Suite version

    NOD32 is the best anti virus out there. It is resource friendly. I have been using it for a year now, haven't had any prb wat so ever.
    Great anti viurs. #1 for me.

    It's called "they are big advertisers so don't rock the boat".

    In general, I wonder at what level the systems were actually operable when the full heuristic options were enabled. My experience is that those with the "best" heuristic scans are such resource hogs they are almost worse than the viruses they are intended to protect us from.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Yea, in a word, they are nubs. Those programs all made for the general consumer (idiot) so the primary requirement is "can a monkey install and run this antivirus"-if so it's allowed on the list.

    NOD32 is a bit more technical (do any of you guys even notice?) but in the same sense it is also more comprehensive and BETTER than any of the other shit out there.

    P.S. Norton: why dont you go to hell with your renewal pop ups, bastards!

    NOD32 rules. (tells you every single detail...fights viruses with no mercy.)


    Norton is o.k, but it's always BOTTLENECKING the whole system. The software's codeing has some major glitches.
    Since Norton is the most "popular"...you'll find there are also "Norton Targeted" viruses that damage your copy. I've seen it happen, so I know it's out there.

    The best AV tests I've seen usually rate either NOD32 or KAV 1st or 2nd. And then BitDefender 3rd.
