    I found it through another way:) ... but thanks...

    Is it free? It seems one has a choice of a trial version and a commercial version... Does the trial terminate after a while?

    I can't seem to find the info on the site....

    Yup, I guess I'll go back to it, once my bitdefender trial expires. I just wish trend micro (pc-cillin) had an anti-virus only software, not a whole suite, becuase I prefer zone alarm (the free version) over any other pay firewall

    2006 Review of common AVs. NOD32 was not ranked top just because of its lack of ease of use, otherwise it is just as effective as the top ones.

    I usually don't trust software reviews in general, but just read them to get a general idea.

    I like nod, because I'm a gamer. It uses little to no resouces (4-10 megs) and runs in the background scanning all the time.
