Free vs NOD32 Antivirus
We often get asked, what's a
good free anti-virus? Or is your antivirus any good?
At Home IT Solutions we sell NOD32 and we have
been doing so confidently for over 9 years. We think
it is the best form of protection you can get and a lot
of our customers agree. So what is the difference
between free antivirus protection and NOD32?
Less updates: The updates for the free antivirus
software don't come in as fast or often as NOD32.
This means that your free protection might not
be up to date with the latest virus threats that are
roaming the world.
Little or no support: With a free protection you
aren't a paid customer, so you are not funding a
support centre, meaning if something goes wrong
with the software there is no one to call.
Less features: You may get basic level of protection
with the free alternative, but your free anti-virus
might not scan websites for adware or your email
attachments might not get checked. NOD32 covers
a wide range of methods that viruses can come
Advertising: As an example AVG or AVAST Free
protection uses advertising and email marketing
to get revenue and push you into their purchased
products. As a free antivirus customer, you have to
put up with advertising.
We have seen a lot of free antiviruses out there
on the internet, the only one that we think is half
decent would be Microsoft ® Security Essentials
(MSE). It is a free download from Microsoft's ®
website. However in many cases when we have
removed MSE and upgraded to NOD32 there
has been viruses lurking without being detected
beforehand, so take any free antivirus software
with a grain of salt.
If you want to try NOD32, you can do so with our
free 30 day trial. Just visit http://goo.gl/gwKUU for the

(We recommend you remove all current antivirus
software before you install NOD32)
