NOD32 certainly has a good reputation. But you're talking about NOD32 the AV, not about the new ESET (beta) suite... Right?
Its the anti-virus.
The version I have (2.7) says it has "Threat Sense Technology".
It says it detects viruses, Trojans, Worms, Adware, Spyware, Phishing, and Active Rootkits.
I'm not sure about the rootkits, I'm never sure about rootkits, and I don't test all the other stuff.
I do however trust Gizmo's recommendations - they've proven reliable over quite a bit of time, and his testing is impeccable as far as I can tell. http://www.techsupportalert.com/
I have Mailwasher, so any mail that's spam or has attachments (funny how the two usually appear together
) gets deleted off the server.
I don't use IE even for MS updates, I use Windiz instead (non -IE browsers only) - they get their updates from MS but weed out unneeded, er, features. http://windowsupdate.62nds.com/
I use Firefox and use the User Agent Switcher extension to identify my browser as Firefox running on Linux.
The places I wander are pretty pedestrian, and my idea of something approaching p*rn (now don't laugh, ok?) is seeing a new Seasonic Power Supply come out of the box or some new OCZ high performance memory.
