It is not that new. I have heard about it for atleast a couple of years now.

From everything I have heard about it, I think Norton & PC Cillin are much better.

I have looked up all those antiviruses success rating when dealing with "ITW" (in the wild) viruses and nod32 has a higher passing grade than all of them. Not sure if that would intice anyone but its just a little bit of information I would like to share.

www.nod32.com

Plus it only uses 10mbs of system ram and goes very lite on other system resources...
