View Full Version : AVG 7 Pro or NOD32?

05-30-2005, 09:04 PM

I've been thinking about purchasing either AVG 7 professional or NOD32. Both are around the same price (27) although the licence for 27 for NOD32 is only 1 year. What one do you think is better? I'm currently running AVG 7 Free edition which is fine, but I want scheduled tests etc of which you can't do with AVG 7 free edition.

NOD32 is one of the most effective anti virus clients around I've heard so I might go with that. However AVG is fairly good as well.

Any ideas anyone?

I've been thinking more of NOD32 lately than AVG. However no one had any suggestions :eek:

Hmm, I haven't used NOD32 before, but if AVG hasnt changed since the last time I used it then I wouldn't use it. I've deliberately put a fake virus on my system to see if AVG picked it up. It didn't pick it up. It seems to concentrate more on the harmless viruses like a spyware that really doesn't do anything but gets the name of a trojan.

Well I've always been pretty happy with AVG, however NOD32 is reputed to be one of the most efficient AV clients on the market.

I would rather run AVG than Norton anyday.

Norton may be a memory hog, but it does its job, I haven't gotten any viruses that have actually corrupted my system. Norton has caught them all. I use Norton Internet Security 2005.

I wouldn't touch Norton if I got paid :)

I'm gonna go with NOD32 although the licence plan is only for 1 year :p
