Off topic:Today I went to play games at orange expo at the time visiting the place and admiring the laptops also and at my surprise when I saw the notebook, it was wow so small but with a harddisk memory of 160 GB
Which is obviously very impressive hehehe!

Well avast free is for gaming also!
There were quad core computer with games such as counter strike,WarCraft, Prince of persia something...And they used avast :)

There was also iphone from apple and big screen computer which the price is about Rs 45 000(divide by 30 to get into us dollar)

It was somehow great to touch a quad core computer once in my life hehehe!

I liked NOD32 a lot during the 2.0-2.5 versions. Version 3 and 4 have really bad interface and as much as they bragged about performance back in the days it's really slow now. We have NOD32 at work and whenever i download anything slightly larger the entire system locks up or goes to a crawl mode because HTTP scanner is checking the file.
It's really annoying. But with avast! it goes through like it doesn't even have HTTP scanner. It's that fast. And it doesn't matter what kind of system is used, slow, fast, doesn't matter. And their detection is not really soemthing to brag about anymore. Proactive detection is decent but in general, i don't know. Honestly i trust avast! more in general.

Compare what you offer Avast! free and Nod32!

Avast! 5 free

- Boot time scanner
- Behavior shield
- Many settings
- in many languages
- decent interface

Nod32

- one naked snail,which nevertheless represents a well in VB and AVC.

Core2Duo E8400/4GB Ram/Win 7 Ultimate SP 1/Avast! 7.0.1426/Firefox 13.0,NoSript,WOT,Adblock Plus

Let us look at the facts.

In the AV Comparatives Dynamic Test which according to me is the most important test of all, Avast beat Eset.
http://www.av-comparatives.org/comparativesreviews/dynamic-tests

Now if we are going to consider that Avast is Free and that v6 will have considerable improvements, I presume we can safely say that Avast is better.

PS: But I prefer Kaspersky Internet Security.lol

IMP: Avast 6 vs ESET 2011
     avast uses less CPU usage than eset
     but detection rate is more of eset
     referred from avast forums and community like vb 100 and virus total
     as both of av are nice but nothing is the best
     if not updated avast it gives more false positives than eset and if not updated eset                                   d     detection rate is less so for those
     who do not have a net connection i prefer avast 6 + mbam or avast + sas or avast + threat  fire.
     thanks for ur support.

I don't much about ESET 2011 or Nod32.

What I do know is the ESET AV on-line scanner

1. can be used along with avast!
2. will work with W8-DP.
3. is very slow.
4. has occasionally caught some stuff that AIS has allowed in and missed.  However, in my experience that has been rare.
