    Downloaded the trial version and wow it's really really fast when compared to other DOS scanners and it's under 1.44 MB at 1.23 MB so can go on a floppy. 5 files and ignoring the TXT, 3 files. How neat and tidy is that!

    NOD32DOS EXE       223,787
    NOD32    000     1,052,225
    README   TXT           884
    LICENSE  TXT        16,799
    NOD32    CFG            24

    However I can't find a link from www.nod32.com where you can get updates (NOD32.000 is the virus def file?). If seems you have to download the whole noddosen.exe
    http://www.nod32.com/download/download.htm
    -----
    There's no /doboots option on the menu so does this need to be invoked on the command line e.g. nod32dos /doboots

    I believe that only F-PROT for DOS is 100% free; -  all other DOS scanners are for a trial period only?

    I can not help you with the questions regarding NOD32's DOS version. Never tried it so far.

    But to answer your questions regarding DOS virusscanner. F-Prot for DOS is the only free one I know.

    Okay DrWeb offers also a free DOS version but only in Russian language. So I think this does not count. :)

    Hi, Polo!

    You can update the DOS version of Nod32 by copying the nod32.000 and nod32upd.000 files into your Nod32 DOS folder.

    Cheers,

    Where do I get those files to update from? It appears you have to connect to the site via the control centre something which the trial version doesn't have?
