It does when you look at the real awards.

****Soapbox ahoy*******

I use NOD32 here.

To view some of it's awards

To view an aarticle a few years old but my understanding is that the practice continues on uneducated and biased reviews read,

NOD32 trashed by CNet Review !!!

http://www.nod32.com.au/nod32/awards/cnet_zdnet.htm

Since dabbling with Mcafee, Norton, AVG, Panda, PC Cillin to name but a few over the years I've used IBM's I've personally never used anything like this thing.

I've seen and talked to friends and professionals, by professionals I mean security consultants and high level Network Admins in corporate IT industry about this product and those that have tryed it haven't looked back.

I have even had the pleasure once myself of going to a clients house with a trial of NOD32 and clearing up their system by allowing it to perform an indepth scan on the system, watch it clean and delete infected files and have their system back up and running perfectly without a format or Windows repair. This perticular person was running Mcafee btw and their definitions where up to date.

I was more than happy with my AVG untill I ran NOD32 on my system and found 7 dormint trojans I hadn't a clue where there and I don't mean buried in that messy nest of system restore archives either. Right there in system32.

I like many thought AVG was doing agood job because my system hadn't keeled over. (A behaviour often we associate with the presence of a virus). However, the meer fact that trojans where on my system and my anti-virus package didn't catch them gave me cause to re-consider what I was using.

Now, this all said. I will be honest in that my girlfriend uses AVG at the moment because she cant' aford NOD as she's currently unemployed. Being a bit of a geek and anal (with the home user in mind), about computer security as I am I have cautioned her on this but I'm satasfied that untill such time she purchases and installs NOD32 she's still partially being protected.

I'm not trashing other anti-virus programs in a way that suggests don't use them because I still believe even though many of the others do not meet the stringent tests NOD32 does you are still in one way protecting yourself and others, if not to the best you can at least to a degree.

NOD32's about £27 for the years subscription and you can also get a trial from it.

AVG is great and I've seen it reviewed by loads of experts who say its as
good as McAfee which costs. Ad-Aware and Spybot are free too so the getting
what you pay for thing doesn't always apply

Hi Marie, I'd purchase another anti virus. AVG being free means you get what you pay for. It really isn't that good I find.

Guess what? NAV's playing up again, so, I'm contemplating using AVG free
edition. Think I've hit a snag though, when I read the product limitations
it says that it is not suitable for a network, we have 2 PCS networked
sharing the internet connection through a router. Any of you using this
version with a config similar to mine? Any comments on this matter welcomed.


Cheers now,

Marie
