Eset NOD32 Antivirus is the best?

UberGeek (his post permalink is broken) posted that NOD32 is the best, linking to the PDF media release from Eset. The document says it’s the 34th consecutive Virus Bulletin 100% award. By definition, consecutive means:

Following one after another without interruption; successive

Looking at the test history for Eset (NOD32), there is 34 successes – just not consecutively. To me, that’s misleading. I’m not amused, simply because it’s pushing them even farther up there, when they don’t deserve it.

Nevertheless, it is definitely impressive, but if someone can explain why the PDF media release is worded that way, I’ll retract my previous statement.

  1. its what i use…and its stopped a whole buch of viruses so far…..anyway i think its the best but thats probably quite biased because its the only one i have…..alrightey then..


  2. I dunno.. i’ve been using Avast! 4 Professional these passed couple months.. seems to be doin a nice job… and i like the way it aborts connections instantly online.. really cool program.. although the UI is a bit funky.. PC Mag reviewed Avast! and got a pretty good rating, and thats for the Home edition.. the reason they didnt get all 5 was because some features were only in the Pro edition.
