Hey Everyone! I'm new to these forums, and I'm thinking of becoming a potential ESET customor in the next few weeks (or sooner) before Christmas. I have McAfee right now and I'm tired of the amount of system resources it requires, its slow scanning speeds, and the automatic updates never working. (NOD32 = Christmas gift to myself :]) I've decided to probably get ESET NOD32 Antivirus because my friend recommended it! He has Smart Security but he said the firewall has a lot of bugs so I should get the antivirus... is this true?? I have some questions before I buy, though: 1 My current AV is McAfee. How do I completely uninstall it so it won't conflict with the NOD32 installation? I once had F-Secure on my old Windows XP computer and when I went to Add or Remove Programs to uninstall it, it messed my machine up (couldn't connect to internet... had to give it to my friend to fix it). 2 I'm using Windows Vista [Home Premium, 32-bit] SP1. Does anyone know if Windows Defender conflicts with NOD32 Antivirus? Should I disable it and just have NOD32 or should I keep both running? 3 If I buy NOD32 Antivirus, does that mean I can install either v2.7 or v3.0 or do I have to get v3.0 (I would like to get the latest version, but just in case it doesn't work I want a backup and I'm just curious) 4 What's easier: purchasing the product and then downloading it? Or downloading the trial and then purchasing it? But if I download the trial and then purchase it, does that mean I won't be getting FULL protection since it's the trial version? Thanks! I'm not sure if 4 questions is too much for one thread but if it is then... what should I do?
