    Hey, as a NAV user, i must admit that it does take a lot of resources and it has a very few defintions compared to other programs. I was wondering which one would be better for me, Nod32, Kaspersky or AVG. I found out that Nod32 has no automatic updates which is shit. The rest sound good. So i was wondering which program is better? Also is it easy to find cracks for all those programs? Thanks

    You can get the nod stand-alone scanner off here every time there&#39;s a new version.

    It&#39;s only the scanner so it isn&#39;t actively protecting you all the time, but it&#39;s a good complement to another av.

    I suppose Kaspersky is the best one of the avs you listed otherwise judging by recent posts. IMO avg really needs you to use another firm&#39;s online scan now and then or the nod stand-alone one, since avg does have a tendency to miss the occasional virus.

    Erm, excuse me, but NOD 32 has automatic update:

    It takes a little time setting up, is all.

    And it&#39;s the only antivirus which can scan my entire system in about 5 minutes without crippling it completely.

    There&#39;s a working crack for it @ suprnova (when suprnova works of course&#33; )

    since u crossed out NOD32, i&#39;m gonna help u crossed out AVG
    that thing is bad, one fella in this forum uses it yet he can get hit by viruses...and he&#39;s not alone

    so kaspersky, i guess

    or

    symantec antivirus corporation...this one is for corporate (but normal home users can use it just as easily), which is why it takes up less resources (much less)

    That&#39;s not strictly accurate.


    Get KAV for just virus protection. If you want anti-virus combined with a firewall, get Symantec Client Security.
    Even better, if you know what you&#39;re doing and are the only user on your computer, get Tiny v6 and forget antivirus programs altogether
