    Hi merkavam4,
    Welcome to Wilders :)
    Were you using another AV before installing the NOD32 trial version?

    I used kaspersky AV and norton 2003, but un-installed both of them each

    timebefore I installed the trial version- cleaned manually all what remainedin

    my PC after the uninstallation and cleaned my registry.

    Try downloading and running Winsock XP Fix and then repairing IMON by going to IMON -> Setup -> Misc. -> Repair now. Then re-enable IMON, should be all better.

    IMON works at the Winsock level, and is very sensitive to any issues with the Winsock. Repairing it and then Repairing IMON should fix this issue. From info floating around on the board, IMON should be gone in its current form and replaced with something much better in V3 that should help to prevent this issue.

    hmm.. not sure how you'd experience this "every few months" - on a program that has a trial period of 30 days.

    Are you using a legit trial?

    thanks for your help mates


    yes,the trial versions I used WERE legit- I just tried over and over and over


    Im running the trail version right now- so far so good. the thing is that

    NOD32 found a suspicious files and it all the time pops-up an annoying

    message window telling me to send it to eset- I cant disable it even by

    pressing cancel. how can I cancel this annoying thing?



    another thing- I have folders with many small files in them- mainly pictures, and when I browse through them

    when NOD32 is on, it takes about a minute(!) or two(!!!) to be able to go from one to another- its like the

    programm scans e-v-e-r-y file even before I enter the folder it is in.

    any way to cancel it? it virtually froze my PC!!!

    You should setup your NOD32 like this:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=37509

    This thread will give you the setup to banish the folder opening blues, AND you will find the place to fix the submission options as you go through the settings thread. It takes a while to setup NOD32 for best effect, but the effort will be well rewarded.

    are you sure its safe change all this Winsock thing- from reading it, it sounds like changing the registry and all. no?

    Absolutely... do it daily to fix broken internet connections. You'd be surprised how often Windows Winsock becomes FUBAR. This basically sets the Winsock back to default, so there isn't much to worry about here.

    I hope this thread really helps, because its really unbearable- there is a lag,

    and a BIG ONE, even when I browse through pictures, websites, when I save

    new files or pictures to my PC and even when I search something in google

    and clicking enter- like NOD32 checkes E-V-E-R-Y little thing!!!


    Edit: Ive just finished reading the setup thread- its just guidlines to setting up and configuring NOD32- I couldnt find any solution to fix the problem with browsing through my folders or pics, or the submitting files to eset problem.

    AMON | Options | Optimize Scanning - make sure it's checked.

    The - setup a scheduled scan -and you'll not get massive slow-downs while browsing folders with large amounts of files and sub-folders in them so much.

    what do u mean- I have to schedule a scan to get rid of this problem? I never scedule scans, I just scan my PC every so often.

    what type of scan- on demand or execution of an external application? whats the difference between them?

    what about the submitting suspicious files to eset? how do I disable this annoying thing? I dont have to re-install NOD32, do I?

    optimized scanning will only scan changed items to my knowledge, so once scanned, they are not re-scanned unless that have been altered. If you have a large folder or say - a couple thousand MP3 files, that's a lot of data to scan. If the optimized scanning option is used, this large amount of data is not RE-SCANNED, unless the files are altered in some way - which isn't likely - right?

    the virus update database is obviously significant too - but opening a folder, closing it and then opening it again will not cause the same files to be scanned if optimized scanning is selected.

    the fact is, it does scan it over and over again.

    everytime I add a new picture, or any other file to a folder, which,according

    to NOD32, changes it, the AV scans it again.

    For a minute I thought you were saying "The - setup a scheduled scan -and you'll not get massive slow-downs while browsing folders with large amounts of files and sub-folders in them so much." would make the difference.

    just how many items are there in this folder merkavam4?

    Also - do you have a 5400rpm or 7200rpm or faster drive?

    I've seen slowdowns on machines with "dump folders" - or people who bring in machines with massive, unorganized photo, file-sharing, mp3 folders.

    Part of the problem is just having massive numbers of files unorganized in a single folder in those instances - just dropping a few sub-folders and getting organized saved a ton of hassle for them anyway. Windows doesn't like large numbers of files much anyway... at least in my experience.

    It would be interesting to know how you keep running the trial version over and over. Do you format every 30 days?

    IMO, it seems like you're trying to cheat the system to keep from purchasing "this great AV."

    First , goto Start->Settings->Control Panel->Add/Remove programs
    and make sure all your previous antivirus softwares are removed . You can manually remove their tracks left in C:\Program files after that . Also , remove your NOD32.

    Since you have had Norton , you have to use Symantec's removal tool to completely remove it :
    • Automatic procedure (requires IE and ActiveX)
    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...sf&view=docid&dtype=&prod=&ver=&osv=&osv_lvl=

    • Manual procedure
    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...view=docid&pid=2005033108162039&pkb=tsgeninfo


    Because of the fact NOD32's IMON operates in Winsock , you need it in great condition. It seems , however , your Winsock is corrupted so you need to repair it.

    If you have Windows XP SP2
    Start –> Run
    type cmd Click OK
    Type netsh winsock reset
    Press ENTER . Restart immediately !

    If you have Windows XP SP1 or without SP
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=462132#post462132

    If you have non-XP Windows , search in Google for LSPfix application



    Winsock should now be OK .

    It would be smart to check your computer for unused software and remove them + their tracks . Also , you should delete all temporary files , use Windows Disk Clean-up with all checked
    from Start-Programs-Accessories-System tools-Disk Clean up

    You can also open MyComputer , right click your hard drives and check them for errors or defragment them

    After that you can run Windows System File Checker (sfc.exe) to verify Windows's system files haven't been damaged or overwritten.
    Start->Run-> type sfc.exe /scannow
    This requires your Windows CD . If there is something , Windows will ask for the CD so that it takes a fresh copy of the file(s) . This will complete without special notice.


    You are now ready to reinstall NOD32

    1) Download a fresh copy of NOD32 for your correct operating system
    Trial version Full paid version

    2) Goto Control Panel-> Add/Remove programs and Uninstall NOD32

    3) Reboot

    4) Goto C:\Program files and manually delete the folder ESET

    5) Install NOD32 from the file you just downloaded in step 1
    Use Typical settings

    6) Make sure you have stable i-net connection and NOD32 (nodkrn.exe) is allowed to go through your firewall and Update NOD

    7) Configure NOD32 as shown here


    Make sure NOD32 is updated . The latest signature is 1.1727.
    Open NOD32's Control Center -> NOD32 -> Run NOD32 -> Scan & Clean to eleiminate malicious softwares .
    You can also use applications like Ad-Aware se Personal or Ewido AntiSpyware for second opinion


    Can you also explain how exactly do you use it over and over , the trial version . I think it is high time you purchased a paid version


    Regards!
