hmm the only way i can think is that they are "evolving" (its the law of nature afterall lol)their threats arent being so effective like they were some time ago.

*not that they still can't give people problems but they arent anyways*

also the companys who make security products are always updating they softwares so we could say that they are in the middle of a war, (reminds of the star wars project and no, its not the starwars from luke and darthvader lol);

I still reckon AV companies create the malware themselves and then infect machines as an attempt to prove AV dependency

The ultimate reason to use a free antivirus, they will not benefit from such practices

NOD32 doesn't slow your PC down...

I'm using McAfee and NOD32 together (with a few simple tricks) and my PC slows down only a bit like you would expect it to.
