Will it be possible to use Blackspears settings on NOD32 Ver 3.0 when it's released ?
As there is no info on NOD 3.0 right now, the correct answer is - nobody knows
Honestly Blackspears settings aren't anything special. They were back in NOD32 2.0 days but 2.5 is pretty much optimally set out of the box.
Not that i don't respect his work but why bother if it's already set correctly?
NOD32 3.0 will come with a brand new interface and two modes - one mode for newbies, offering only the very basic settings, and the other with detailed configuration options for advanced users.
So!! Finally we are getting *some* info about version 3.0! Its really great to know that we will have version 3.0 after all!!! Just kidding! Keep up the good work!
So does this mean two diff progs or just the one. Well when I upgrade I'm going for the advanced version
I think he meant same program, different modes of operation.
Can't wait for it
I think BS settings are excellent. I think they added 10-30% better protection on my setup.
nod32 is not set to maximum out of the box.check each mod.Amon,Dmon etc via setup and you will see.Also check setup on the on demand scan and you will see also,but it also depends on how in depth you scan also.
If you mean that potentially dangerous applications are disabled by default, this is perfectly ok. Otherwise it would be a nightmare for network administrators to have them enabled !!!
I think you may be a little out of touch here. See post #32 by tazdevl in this thread. He sums it up beautifully. http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=646348#post646348
Well, you should remember that:
1. potentially dangerous appplications mostly cover commercial software for remote administration
2. this software is always installed with prior CONSENT of the user
3. this software does not contain any malicious code
I don't know what all this fuzz is about.? Default or out of the box settings are good enough for about 99 % of NOD32 users.
maybe but some of us here dont fit into the 99%
No fuss. Marcos is just hearing from some home users who aren't network admins.
Good. That’s why you have all those little options to play with.
marcos, all i hope is that you won't get rid of that trademarkish warning message when malware is detected. Those red scrolling lines of code and flashing eye is the only warning message that i like the most along the one used in avast!.
Other AVs have weird warning messages and i don't like that...
Though i hope you'll first release public beta version so users can give comments and recommendations about this and that.
I think if you asked the 99% they would want the defaults improved or increased in number and the options reduced. Many Av's have a corporate version which is set up differently from the home version. It is possible to satisfy both network admins and home users with different versions with different presets.
NOD32 default settings are pretty tight. I am an advanced user and I use default options. If I’ve ever felt any risk by using defaults I’d probably agree with you. I agree that early v2 had some holes but the latest one is very tight.
I don’t know what you mean by saying corporate version should be different. As an admin you should limit employee’s computer privileges in the first place. By doing this, I don’t know how out of the box NOD32 wouldn’t be good enough.
Needless to mention that with Potentially dangerous applications enabled, a lot of commercial programs for parental protection would be detected and removed as well.
i dont think corporate AV have different presets, what different is their interface and the options available.
As a home user I'm not concerned with network admins at all as their concerns are different from mine. So just have a home version with more presets along the lines of what Blackspear has done and a separate Admin version with lots of options for network admins to tweak to their hearts content. I'm sure other Av's have done something along these lines.
Now that makes sense. I'm just arguing that some of Blackspear;s settings be adopted as out of the box defaults for the home user. I'm not necessarily suggesting that they all be adopted. If not then hopefully Blackspear will do a version 3. Also a lot of home users see red when the subject of admin problems comes up as a reason for not addressing a home user concern.
amen! when i used nod32 i intentionally went to sites that i wouldn't just to see that screen.
