    Disable your internet connection!!!!!!!

    1.Disable UAC (User Account Control)
    Open “Control Panel”; choose “Classic View” (left panel).
    Doubleclick ”User Accounts”; click “Turn User Account on or off”; click “Continue”;
    remove “Use UAC to help protect your computer”; click “OK”; click “Restart now”.

    2.Disable Windows Firewall
    Open "Control Panel" - doubleclick "Windows Firewall";
    click "Turn Windows Firewall on or off" (right pane); choose "Off (not recommended)" - press "OK".
    Close "Windows Firewall" - close "Control Panel".

    3.Disable Windows Defender & Windows Firewall Services
    Press WinKey+R and type services.msc (ENTER).
    Doubleclick "Windows Defender"; under "Startup type:" choose "Disabled" - press "OK".
    Doubleclick "Windows Firewall"; under "Startup type:" choose "Disabled" - press "OK"; close "Services".

    Press WinKey+R and type regedit (ENTER) - find the key
    mark "Windows Defender" in the right pane and delete it!!

    Restart Vista (to get rid of Windows Defender).

    4. Disable "Application Compatibility Engine" in Group Policy.
    Press WinKey+R and type gpedit.msc (ENTER)
    Open the following key:
    "Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Application Compatibility"
    Double-click "Turn Off Application Compatibility Engine"; choose "Enabled".
    Close Group Policy (you don't need to restart the computer).

    5.Install NOD32 2.51.30 manually
    Doubleclick the installer file "nentenst.exe".
    Extract the files to the default folder ("C:\Program Files\ESET\Install").

    Follow the installation wizard with THESE adjustments:
    - IMPORTANT: choose "Expert (Fully customized installation)"
    - choose "I agree"
    - choose default installation folder "C:\Program Files\Eset\"
    - choose default internet connection
    - choose "Register tasks for automatic updates"
    - it's your choice of enabling "Silent mode" / "Protect config.."
    - it's your choice of enabling "..graphical user interface" / "..splash screen.."
    - it's your choice of enabling "..warnings by email" / "..warnings via Win Messenger.."
    - disable (unmark) "Enable ThreatSence.Net Early Warning System" (never used it)
    - NEW in build 5744: ENABLE (mark) AMON: "I want to start the file system monitor.." (default)
    - it's your choice of enabling "..icon on desktop" / "Enable context menu integration"
    - it's your choice of enabling DMON (I do)
    - enable "Register Internet monitor (IMON) to the system"
    - enable "Enable IMON email checking" / "All email"
    - enable "HTTP checking" - choose your own action
    - it's your choice of enabling EMON (I don't because I don't have Outlook installed)

    Choose "Restart Computer" (default).

    After a complete restart you'll see the green NOD32 icon in the notification bar.

    ENABLE your internet connection!!!!!!!

    Now doubleclick the NOD32-icon in the notification area.
    If you have installed the testversion update to the full version using your username and password.
    Then make an update of the virus signatures.



    - You do NOT need to use the batch files as described in the thread I started titled "How to install and run NOD32 on Vista RC1 5600"....

    Why do you need to disable Windows Defender and Windows Firewall? They're working fine with NOD32. If it isn't necessary, don't include it.

    And since disabling the Application Compatibility Engine makes NOD32 run like in XP, you can pretty much select anything you want in the installation.

    If you shut the compatability nag off will just about anything install now?

    My nod32 license is up in about 4 weeks and I'd like to maybe explore Antivir and Kaspersky before I renew for my 4th year.

    Don't ask me why I'd think of switching; guess I am just plain bored of an antivirus solution that works with no intervention by the user ;)

    geircito, thank you for the info, I got NOD working great.

    Anyone else who does this, turn on again the firewall after NOD is installed and running. You can also turn off automatic updates at this time if you want to.
