    Your suspicions are correct!. I've seen trial disk handed out at major computer expositions, but the product itself is only available through purchase download (and VISTA is not supported)... I seen security 'consultants' who attend the Las Vegas Black Hat conference who swear by this product...

    Cool, thanks for the link. I've bookmarked it so when my current one runs out, I can get my hands on it. The guy who built my rig swears by it too, but I forgot to get the address, plus it was a couple of years later when we got the net. Apparently it's also great for gamers, cleaning up the incoming data while not taking up too many resources.

    Mind you, this is only what I've heard. The jury's still out until I actually use it...

    Thanks again for the link!

    Yes, like Len Miyata says, it's only available to purchase online. And it's true that Vista isn't suported, only XP. I use that AV on an old PC with XP and works well.

    And you have the link now, buy it, download and enjoy. I hope that program 'll available for Vista.

    Re: Good anti-virus programs?

    Here's a list of the best anti-viruses in the world

    Kaspersky - Antivirus Software: Kaspersky Lab - Protection Against Malware and Cybercrime - price range 60-80$ ( Updates hourly for virus protection )
    NOD32 - Antivirus Software - Eliminate viruses with ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security - price for 1 year 60$ 2 years is 90$ ( Updates every 12 hours for virus protection )
    Bitdefender - Antivirus software - BitDefender - The future of security now! - price 50$ ( up to 3 computers usage, and updates every 12 hours )
    F-Secure - Antivirus Software and Internet Security Tools - F-Secure -price 75 euros ( updates daily )

    I personally have never got a virus, trojan, worm, etc while using Kaspersky, its catch rate is 97.8% and that's why its the best NOD32 is a close second with a 96.5% catch rate. Bitdefender is a 93.4% I believe and F-Secure 89.7%, any other anti-virus is not something I would use since the catch rate for almost all other anti-viruses are under 85% v_v;!

    Kaspersky Internet Security is a bit overpriced I do agree but its worth not having to stress over stupid malware

    Also a nice hint for those still using Norton, norton is actually a nice 30-40% catch rate and is a ram hog ;/

    Hope this helped people!

    P.S:

    Len and Master_badger


    This is the system requirements for NOD32 3.0 is indeed Vista supported, the version you think isn't Vista supported is 2.7 their version from last year.

    Systems Requirements

    * Processors supported: 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) Intel®, AMD® or 100% compatible
    [/bold]* Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP (32 and 64-bit editions), Microsoft Windows Vista (32 and 64-bit editions) [/bold]
    * Memory: 33 - 38 MB on average
    * Disk Space (download): 16MB
    * Disk Space (installation): 78MB

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!
