    Good Antivirus Avira or Nod32?

    which one is better? is it Avira or Nod32? or any other suggestions? Let's say Paid Versions.

    They're both awesome. For the past year...may give a slight edge to AntiVir. Year before that...Eset. This year....who knows, we'll see.

    It is a pretty slick package...their interface really matured. I'm currently at a big insurance company upgrading their antivirus on the servers and workstations....Eset NOD32 V4.2, as well as their Mail Security for MS Exchange Server product.

    i saw av-comparatives reviews that symantec internet security is better than NOD32 in terms of virus detection, removal and system performance. Seems to be a good one.

    Yup Symantec has climbed back on top for the past 2 years....they did a ground up rebuild of their products, and now their products are quite light. Gone are the "bloated" complaints.

    I'll give them a longer period of time until having confidence in them again.
