Hello all. First time post here. I've been in the market for a new AV solution for quite some time after growing increasingly dissastisfied with McAfee. I've narrowed things down to Kaspersky or NOD32. I'd really like to go out and purchase NOD32 but there's one thing I'm concerned about. I recently read a user comment ( not here) that NOD32 regualrly and continually hits the internet by "calling home" even when you have automatic updates turned off. One thing that made me frustrated with McAfee was that I could not completely (temporarily) disable it's network activity. I would disable the virus checking and turn off automatic updates but it would still go out and hit the network. There are times when I don't want anything else using my network resources. I finally uninstalled McAfee and my problems vanished. So, is it possible to, temporarily, but completely disable NOD32's network activity if a user desires to for some reason? Or does it also continue to hit the network even when you *think* you have it completely disabled? Thanks.
