I use free AVG + comodo + common sense, never get any adware, spyware or virus in the past 10 years+. While avg may not detect everything, comodo will allow me to see whats in and out of the system and run unknowns inside sandbox. Common sense is always the first line of defense, you can have the best anti-malware that slow down your system but whats the point if it reduce your productivity with a slower system.

I have a machine that I wanted to test this but it has now failed twice "unable to start Nano Antivirus service" so I guess that pretty much ends the testing. Did let it do it's automatic mail back to the engineers but that's all for Nano.

Fred Fell, sounds like it should STILL be in pre-release beta versioning and they declared 1.0 stable release too soon! Thanks for the report.

Fred Fell, thank you for your feedback. We replied to you by email, the problem is you have installed a number of other antivirus programs on your PC. It's not recommended to use more than one antivirus program as it can slow down PC and produce other problems.

Thanks for op to test it but pass for me. Comments helpful. Just sticking w/ free Malwarebytes (removes the Falco game PUPs) and Windows Defender which so far those enough. Also seems Chrome, FF, and Edge have improved somewhat in detecting the worse in poor sites.
Malwarebytes has blocked some sites recently I see. Odd, thought Chrome had blocked d/l of 2 recent attempts to d/l 2 separate photo editor programs. Chrome brings them down then deletes, so probably not Mal doing it. No biggie, just unusual since legit sites. Oh one site (SOS?) had several users reporting blocked result too for one of the d/ls. Other program some said serial given fails. Overall clear sailing compared to Wild West of prior decades.

The free version of Nano is just as good, oh and guess what? it isnt a bad AV, so a few pointless comments here that should be takin like a pinch salt. Avg is more or less the same as Avast now, should be classed adware. Eset if need paid product and Norton is still very good. And i have tried Nano buts its a little heavy on my system, just to mention ahnlab also do a free Av now. Windows Defender is just too heavy and slow on a lot of systems. There is free and paid decent options out there just do a little research .

big kahuna, You failed to mention Panda -- very light on resources and works from the cloud. I use Avast Pro (paid) and rarely get ads. . . certainly NOT adware.

I don't see why we would consider what is just trialware like this Nano offering.

Reply   |   Comment by Nonya  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

big kahuna,

"Windows Defender is just too heavy and slow on a lot of systems."

FWIW, politely disagree... I use it with win10 VMs & on a very low powered win10 tablet [with an Intel Atom CPU]. That said, it's also really hard to completely disable in win10 unless you install 3rd party security software. So I use McAfee on 3 other very low powered devices [with Intel Atom, Celeron, & i3 mobile CPUs], where it's not too bad at all when it comes to slowing the system down.

"There is free and paid decent options out there just do a little research ."

av-test[.]org isn't a bad place to start. Also FWIW, there are people that see false positives as a good sign that security software is working great & is properly aggressive, so keep your eye out for that sort of thing if you read user reviews at retailers like Amazon & Newegg.

Nonya, Avast PRO is probably ad-free, but Avast FREE can be very annoying with all the ads. AVG Free used to be better, but "big kahuna" is right--it has gotten annoying with ads too.

big kahuna, IF windows defender is too big and heavy for some systems I'd bet real money that you will not find an objectively equivilent or better 3rd party product that is smaller in memory/cpu resources and scaremongering and storage footprint. Including this apparently 1 gig installation just the allegation of that much consumption almost makes me want to download it on a test setup just to see what this company is doing so wrong that it needs that much storage to just exist in!... Imagine trying to install that on one of those low cost sub 64G emmc storage with 2G ram and 64bit windows 10... Windows Defenders footprint is so small that there are no cries about how do I uninstall WIndows Defender as I use a 3rd party anti-malware and I need the 100MBytes or so it takes up back for my 1Gig antivirus product! Do a little research into what you are criticising... there are reasons to choose 3rd party solutions but footprint and resource usage certainly is not one of them!

Just did a search for antivirus ratings on PC Mag, CNet, Consumer Reports, and a couple of other not well known places and 'Nano' never appeared. There are many places that seem to have rated them, but, imo, are questionable. This may be a good program but without being picked up by the mainstream test centers I am leery of it's effectiveness.

Why should I take the risk of installing an unknown anti-virus with only 200 days of license if there are many free and good AVs like Avast, Avira, AVG, Panda, etc., not to forget the Win10-pre-installed Microsoft Defender which in the meantime is also very good.

Reply   |   Comment by John Doe  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+57)

John Doe, Absolutely correct. And many free anti-virus perform as good if not better than the paid ones.

"... not to forget the Win10-pre-installed Microsoft Defender which in the meantime is also very good."

FWIW, it's got good ratings at av-test[.]org, but it's part of Microsoft's win10 stuff, and they've gotten a bit sloppy, especially when it comes to anything win10. [Firing the 1/2 of your coders that does QA kinda has that effect IMHO.] And because it is an integral part of win10, I think that a win10 vulnerability stands a better chance of compromising Defender that it does 3rd party security software, though I could of course be wrong.

"And many free anti-virus perform as good if not better than the paid ones."

IMHO, maybe. But there's something to be said for liking the GUI & working with whatever software too. We like & use McAfee & BitDefender in that regard [depending on how powerful the device is], but we also watch the sales, so McAfee unlimited devices has cost us $10 a year, & BitDefender never more that $20. Now there's nothing at all wrong with free, but it's worth that small amount for something we like much better.

at version 1.0.1 this looks like a VERY young product apparently it was still in beta in 2017 from the article at https://nano-av.com/nano-antivirus-v-0-30-beta-was-offered-for-the-opswat-certification/

There is a wikipedia article on this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:NANO_Antivirus

I find the entry a little suspicious for example there is a statement

"NANO Security Ltd is included in the Microsoft list of reputable security companies that provide consumer security software compatible with Microsoft Windows."

IF that is a true statement why is there no reference link to this "Microsoft list"

I do see conflicting information on their website in some places and in system requirements in information panel above it says only Windows 7 or better but on

https://nano-av.com/product/nano-antivirus-pro-for-business/

It has:

"System requirements:
OS
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP1 and higher (32-bit and 64-bit)
Microsoft Windows XP SP3 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Other
Internet connection available
Administrator rights"

Looking around the website it talks of commendations and awards and recomendations from all sorts of industry names but oddly for a commercial website it does not include LINKS to those organisations glowing articles which would serve multiple functions, it would substantiate their claims... and it would significantly improve their search engine ranking too!

just using google I came up with:

https://www.av-comparatives.org/products/nano-antivirus-pro/

Apparently according to one reviewer/affiliate the real installer requires a download of around 700MB which means it will unpack to significantly more and you'll likely find the small download from here is just a downloader tool that then downloads the real installer from their server.

Just checked yep it procedes to download a 681MB installer... it pretends it's looking for an updated installer as if it was an installer itself which it is not. It always was and is a downloader. I would suggest you make sure that your system drive has at least 2 GigaBytes spare space to unpack the downloaded 681Mbyte installer and then to copy those unpacked files to their final installed location. And if you are on a slow connection be prepared to need to be patient.

Terry, Probably because he read this from another member who already installed it, and decided to research for the rest of us!
"Installed a few months ago, the program takes up to 1 gigabyte of process! "
1GB???? I've had/tried many many anti-virus, never seen 1 that large.

Reply   |   Comment by DJ  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

TK, Thanks TK...think @ almost 1GB install size, and your review, gonna pass on this unknown. Don't like being a guinea pig for some softwares, especially anti-virus!

Reply   |   Comment by DJ  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+16)

Terry, is that a question or a demand? Because I have found from years of experience that one must be very prudent about what anti-malware software one puts on any machine since in order for it to be effective at restraining malicious software that can hide in the inner workings of the operating system that it too has to have a very intimate arrangment with the operating system to function and a side effect of that is that it will have continuous access to every piece of data you have and have to be aware of every thing you want to do on your computer and in doing so will likely interfere with the day to day usage of that computer the more paranoid the software is designed to be...

So after a little research and experience and maybe a touch of prejudice against big claims which are not backed up by evidence and conflicting information I think er no thanks not even if you PAY ME to install it let alone a measly free 100 days... Or, to put it simply, because I am not an idiot that sees oh something is free so I just have to install it without researching it and its history! Even more so when the developer does not publish a full development history too and one finds that most of its life its been in beta test!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+18)

TK, Thank you for your comment. In fact, you looked through the additional site which was under construction and needed a lot of enhancements and really has some inaccuracy, we apologize for that and would make efforts to fix it asap.
Let me comment on some points. Our antivirus is integrated into Windows Security Center. Since Microsoft provides with their API only trusted antiviruses, thу very fact of the integration confirmes that any integrated antivirus is trusted so no need to link it.
Our antivirus is tested by the well known oldest test laboratory VB100, the result of the latest test can be found here https://www.virusbulletin.com/virusbulletin/2019/06/vb100-comparative-review/. At the moment we obtained eleven VB100 awards,
The installer is quite big because the virus base is included and no need to download it additionally.

Reply   |   Comment by NANO AV  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

NANO AV, I presume your AV patterns are updated at least once daily so that means the installer if it contains patterns, so they don't have to be downloaded, that the installer has to be rebuilt very frequently... even including virus patterns 681MByte download and 1Gbyte installed is still VERY large, one can download the entire windows defender definitions database in less than 100MBytes!

Just about every anti-virus product integrates into windows security center so that is not a qualitive endorsement by Microsoft of the current product. The wikipedia article should have a "citation needed" on the claim of an aproval of this product by Microsoft over other AV products that intigrates into windows security center. The wikipedia article reads more like a vendors advert or marketers review.

And looking at that page you link to the products listed there claim at worst 0.003% false positive detection rate, Most claim 0.000% and I know for a fact that many of them false positive detect many quite legitimate 100% clean 3rd party administrative and technicians programs so much so as I have to use a hardware write protected USB thumb drive when working on customers computers with many of those products in order to stop them deleting my toolkit before I have a chance to de-paranoid the default heuristics and anti- PUP blocking! None of those third party programs are worth the damage they will do my software collection and time wasted teaching them to ignore certain programs and folders which then unprotects those legitimate files from infection.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

TK, our product uses incremental update's mode, so no need to rebuilt the installer. As for the disk space, if you check system requirements of modern antiviruses you will find that most of them require not less than 1 Gb of disk space or even more.
As for the WSC integration, none of the antiviruses can get Microsoft API just because it wants to be integrated. It's just impossible. Microsoft company provides with API personally each company only if it meets Microsoft's requirements which are quite strong. It includes the special testing of antivirus product by Microsoft.
As for Wikipedia and any inaccuracy in articles you need to address to the article editor as it's not our official channel of information.

Installed a few months ago, the program takes up to 1 gigabyte of process! Abnormally, I immediately uninstalled it.

Reply   |   Comment by Experimento  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+57)

Experimento, yes, it's absolutely abnormally. So it would be appreciated if you send logs before uninstall. The normal RAM usage is much less. I have our antivirus on my work PC, right now there are 2 processes which take about 45 Mb for each.

If it (or GOTD) associates itself with Avast then its a no from me. I have accidently infested my laptop with Avast once before and its a s*d to remove.
I find the Windows 10 Defender more than adequate and it does not prevent the installation of GOTD offerings. Using a VPN and an Ad Blocker as well gives pretty good protection

Reply   |   Comment by peter  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

peter,

Security software sends its roots deep into Windows, because malware often tries to disable or circumvent it. Most decent security software companies are aware of the difficulty of removing those roots, so they provide special tools just for that, including Avast.

mike, Avast is always trying to sneek itself onto your computer. Its often bundled with other software. You have to decline it or uncheck a box to stop it installing. This is not ethical behaviour.

Mike, you must be thinking of very old editions of Norton Security products: the current line of Norton products are streamlined; very quick and easy to install (and remove); not bloatware at all. You are simply misinformed, sad to say, and none offense intended..

Reply   |   Comment by Randy  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Randy, Oh my. I usually don't reply to people after I make comment but I must in your case. This review is first one I found when I google Norton Security products review.

Heavy system-performance impact.

Many years ago, Norton antivirus products would slow your system to a crawl while they scanned your hard drive. But Norton subsequently made great strides on that front, and most of its products we tested in the past few years had only a moderate system impact. We're sad to report that the bad old days may be back.

Reducing system resources sends out red flags that something else is going on, bloatware.

Don't take my word for it, I am sure you are smart person, go google and find out for yourself.

You're welcome, have a great day.

Terry,
I’ve been using AVG free version since the early 90’s, and yes I won’t deny having a few issues and a few virus slip through the system protectors.....
AVG really stepped up its game, got its awards like any other good AV prog.... Though there is other security detailed programs that accidentally step on AVG’s toes.

Become AT savvy, learn a few tricks and if NANO still does it for you, then employ it.
