Yes, and it is good.

I used it when it was in beta and found it very good. Since I reloaded Windows 7, I did not reinstall it due to the fact I have UAC on maximum and never install programs I don't trust.

It is brilliant - very low resource usage and works well. Now it is out of beta, I will probably be reinstalling soon.

I was previously a fan of Nod32, but recently I think they have gone down hill (More money in advertising and less in development... like another security company).
