    Sorry for the newbie question, I just joined today.
    I had used McAfee 2005 Suite and was so disgusted with it I uninstalled it and my 2year Spy Sweeper to install F-Prot. (F-Prot don't like competition) I Seem to be having problems updating F-Prot (Dialup). I am also having problems with virtual memory since installing F-Prot and my XP Pro computer has 1GB RAM??

    My original desire was to use NOD32, but I read an article that said NOD32 did not scan Outlook Express e-mail and I believe Incredimail is just a fancied up Outlook Express. I have Office XP so I could switch to Outlook XP if I had to. It just seems to much like being at work, you know?

    So can I get results with NOD32 or do I need Outlook XP?

    NOD32 can scan ANY incoming POP3 email. It only scans outgoing using Outlook. AMON should take care of any bugs if they are ever on your system, so you shouldn't have to worry about sending infected emails.

    This is totally wrong information.


    You can use any POP3 email client such as Outlook Express, Incredimail, Mozilla Thunderbird etc without an issue.

    Cheers :D

    As Blackspear already said , what you have read it is wrong .

    NOD32 has 5 components/protection modules -> AMON , DMON , EMON , IMON and NOD32 on-demand scanner

    IMON is the Internet monitor which scans all the HTTP and POP3 traffic at the early Winsock level ,which means the whole traffic is being scanned even before it reaches the appolication (in your case increadimail)

    AMON (or the Antivirus monitor) is the resident scanner . It performs on-create,on-access and on-execute scans.Your mail will be scanner once again with AMON when your attachment is about to be created or accessed.

    DMON scans MS Office Documents , EMON scans MS Office Outlook

    Because of the fact IMON works on the early Winsock level , it cannot scan encrypted traffic (port 995) . If your mail clients (software) uses encryption , IMON will not scan it however you are still protected because AMON will be always ON protecting you ! :thumb:

    Go through Blackspear's tutorial to setup NOD32 for maximum protection and automatic work

    Make sure your NOD32 is updated , the latest signature is 1.1725
    Open NOD32 Control Center -> NOD32 -> Run NOD32 -> Scan&Clean to perform full scan of your hard drives :D

    Thanks HiTech Boy, I did yesterday. In fact I printed it out to take it home. (Dial up you know). I live in the country and still waiting for any kind of hi speed connection other than Direct PC. No luck so far waiting for 6 years now. Getting ready to move to Virginia, so no big deal now.
