I have read (Marcos said that, an ESET moderator) on Wilder's Security that ESET's NOD32's scanning part is written in assembly code. This means that it's normal to be very fast while it's scanning. What I want to know is in which programming language KAV is written...

From what I understand some parts are written in C/C++, while some routines do utilize assembler.

So that's why it's suffering when talking about speed of scanning and this is why NOD32 hasn't changed their engine too much since it's original development...quite a very good solution :).

from my point of view asambler doesn't mean faster then c++ it depends on the developer's knowledge, you can have a subrutine written in asm which is slower to one written in c++ just because the dev can't write it more efficient (and asm is really hard, to use push, pop, jmp, mov.. it's harder to understand then c++)

Actually KAV's core engine is not new at all either. The scanning engine is now at version 3.0 (as of version 6.0), but we do see some new improvements like iSwift, and iChecker in response to user's requirements. The underlining principle did not change. Some routines are faster in assembler, however for modularity C/C++ is used to write Prague Modules :D

Nod32 is indeed fast & their new version a beta Nod32 v3.0 is even faster than the final nod32 v2.7. I been a previous nod32 user before. Nod32 may be better than norton ,avg & mcafee. But pales to kaspersky. I tried to use my nod32 v2.7 & recently the new version beta nod32 v3.0. I sign up for their beta testing team & believed it it was the best but I then tried kaspersky to scan a rar file. nod32 reports its no infections but kaspersky detects a hidden trojan inside and destroyed it that convinced that kaspersky is better. Taht convince me to bought it. There may be very rare instances that nod32 detects a virus that kaspersky has not detect but kaspersky detects far more viruses than nod32. Believe me coming from a previous Nod32 fanatic. Nod may faster kaspersky but kaspersky is more efficient & accurate in detecting viruses & trojans. It may be not be 100% perfect but maybe close to it probably 95 to 98% to me. Nod32 I would give about 91%

Ouu, yeah :censoree: -And the problem with nod32 is with his security operations and modules. But, when we talk about av scan speed - Kaspersky is slower than Nod32, but K bring more security to your PC.

So, try and use Kaspersky solutions - That is the best way to secure and control your computer.

I guess ur right Nod32 does it detection more on heuretics than a signature database. That what their threatsense engine is about. Kaspersky combines it using both heuretics and signatures am I correct?

Kaspersky solutions depends more on signature updates, while NO32 depends more on their Heuristics and Threatsense. But still Kaspersky leads and rules. The heuristics in Kaspersky solution is under development and is currently comparable with many other AV Vendors. Actually Heuristic component of Kaspersky is perhaps making it somewhat slow in On-demand scans.
In Kaspersky v8/2009, the scan engine is really fast due to new bases format and several optimizations, e.g., archive scanning and multi-core sensing etc. That version will bring much improvement in scanning speed.
