NOD32 consistently wins independent awards for detecting and removing viruses; the program is one of the fastest and lightest we\'ve seen.
It won\'t win any beauty pageants, but Eset NOD32 antivirus will keep your computer free of almost all malware. Our problem is the interface. Although intuitive and improved from previous iterations, NOD32 remains very utilitarian, and the individual AMON and DMON scanners could be confusing to novices who have come expect some level of application hand-holding, such as that provided by Norton AntiVirus 2007 and McAfee VirusScan Plus 2007. Yet it\'s what\'s under the hood is what really matters, and here NOD32 delivers with its collection of awards won over the years. So if you\'re looking for a powerful and customizable antivirus solution and you don\'t mind how it looks and feels, NOD32 is superior. But if you require more hand-holding with your routine antivirus protection, we recommend Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 instead.
If you want a fast, flexible antivirus product that an advanced user can tweak to perfection, NOD32\'s an excellent choice. But if you\'re more of a set-it-and-forget-it novice, look elsewhere.
