    Hello, I'm planning to buy a core i7 computer with 4 GB ram ddr3 and windows 7 64 bits. I'm thinking in purchasing nod for that computer.

    The reason why I stopped using nod some years ago is the huge cpu it needs to scan executable files in real time protection. The problem is CPU consumption, not RAM. There's nothing you can do short of turning off advanced heuristics (and heavily castrating NOD32's detection rate). Even on small files, nod takes many seconds to scan it if it is encrypted with complex packers. I face this problem with almost any setup file.

    Can somebody with similar setup tell me how is the perfomance of nod real time protection? All my tests have been done in dual core computers with 32 bits OS, so I don't know what happens in 64 bit systems.

    Thanks.

    The only problem I've come across is slow internet access when eset scans after an update.

    I do not think NOD32 is slow on my computer, I7 (920) + 12Gb ram + Windows 7 x64

    It causes frequent loss of internet connection with the latest ver. nod . I have vista ult 64 i7 965. It got so bad I went to avast and all is well now. Hope eset gets their 64 act together with the next ver. This was av not security suite.
