    I was thinking of buying NOD32 but they are not real cheap for a 2-PC licence for 2 years.

    Shield Deluxe seems (?) to get a good writeup in some reviews ........... anybody have any experience with it?

    Thanks

    I think NOD has a better reputation.

    'cheap' is a relative term, but NOD32 at USD26/user/year seems reasonable to me.
    Security is difficult to do a cost/benefit analysis on. Plastic bars over your windows are cheaper, but do they protect as well? OTOH if tungsten-steel bars cost more than what you're trying to protect, maybe you should go for plastic.

    Most often people seem to rate security in terms of what they can afford-and that's a mistake, IMO. If you can't afford good security then how well can you afford to replace what you lose? (In terms of computers, that's most likely time but can also be identity, financial assets that can be accessed online, etc. Depends on what you have.)

    I remain quite sure there is no comparison to Nod32.
