Microsoft Security Essentials (Morro) leaked - here it is in action. (Download Squad)

Jun 20th 2009 8:48PM Nod32 had 2 releases in like 10+ years and in the past couple of years they went from 2 to version 4.

IMHO, version 2 was brilliant. Ever since then, it is not the resource hog that Norton was (need to check the new version, "they" say it has improved significantly), but it has been slower. I have had bugs where they say reinstall... really, it has just gone down hill.

I was a big fan of NOD32 for many many years, but as a company they are so inflexible (pricing - try asking for 11 machines and they offered next to no discount where as norton and others have 3 packs e.t.c.... I know about licensing e.t.c. but I just want this for home use)


Since switching to vista and 7, I have not used antivirus as I have not installed any programs and set UAC to maximum (don't care what others say, I love UAC!) If this uses the resources said in this article, I will be happy to use it!

May 1st 2008 10:19AM Sorry for sounding like a idiot, I know that the iphone has wifi - but I thought the idea of having it was so that you can have internet anywhere anyway as it is meant to have that in the plan :S

Iomega warming to revised EMC takeover bid (Engadget)

Mar 18th 2008 9:42AM Without being rude, I wouldn't touch a Iomega drive after the problems I had with one years ago.

However with that said, I thought Iomega would be worth a lot more money than that.
