    Hi

    My question is simple : There's a 64-bit installer for NOD32, but why is the engine still running in 32-bit mode?

    I know that NOD32 is more than just ekrn.exe, and there must be 64-bit drivers working behind the scenes

    But I don't understand why they won't make a fully 64-bit anti-virus anyway o_O

    Thanks

    Translation: "We tried to make it fully 64 bit but were unwilling to expend the effort and cost required to make the 64 bit code at least as (if not more) efficient as the existing 32 bit code already is on a 64 bit system."

    Jmho.

    Blaiming ESET for doing nothing in terms of improvements is a bit silly. Everyone knows that we're working on improvements that will be introduced in a newer version so please stop crying and bashing here.
