    This is good news, as our Bursar doesn't like it when I turn around and say things like '30 of our computers are too old or too slow to do X' accompanied with an order form...
    Hahahaha! It doesn't work... well, Sophos works, but it takes anything that the machine used to be able to do with it. It takes about 10 mins to log on to those machines on average and even once it has the machine runs like a dog. 80% of the machines are either celeron 300MHZ, 600MHz and 900MHz each with either 128MB RAM or 256MB RAM.

    Our new ICT Suite arrives around Christmas time (best Christmas present I have ever had), so I can hope to get rid of the celeron 300MHz and 600MHz by encouraging the parents to have them. Ill do this by blagging them off with windows 2000 along with office suite (open office), desktop publisher (scribus) and maybe some other open source free software that sounds like it is expensive when described.

    Incidently, I wouldn't have installed it yet if it had been my choice, the LEA forced it upon me by turning up unexpectedly at the front door armed with a CD... they will most likely ban us from using their MAN if I refused to let them.

    we have found it very reasonable, well i dont want to say too much esle you will think i work for them,
    we have ran side by side tests with sophos and nod32
    sophos did a full scan in 2 hours and caught 15 viruses (?)
    nod32 did a full scan in just under an hour and caught 35
    I admit not under lab conditions and it was an older version of sophos,
    Nod32 catches a hell of a lot of adware and spyware
    but the best thing about it is the remote admin,
    each pc emails us if it has a virus or adware, we can also run reports for publishing on the web intranet
    very happy with it

    I have been using nod32 for a few months now, previously on Symantec Enterprise. I am pleased with it, although there are just a couple of things that could be changed to make me happier. Price was slightly more than symantec, but I also prefer the exchange module to the huge symantec one.
