    I installed NOD32 2.51.30 trial version about ten days ago. Today I was checking the size of the ESET NOD32 folder in my "programs" directory (XP sp2) and it shows a whopping 357 MB of files, mostly a variety of .dat files in the "logs" folder.

    Does anyone know for sure if it is OK to delete these files?? If they are only "logs" can I clean them out, at least reduce the size of space consumption to something more reasonable??

    I assume you enabled the "List all files" option in the on-demand scanner setup, hence the logs are so large.

    You can adjust the log lifetime in the NOD32 system setup:

    Bingo!!

    God, you guys around here are smart!! Thanks for the quick reply and solution.

    I've got a lot to learn about all that's in NOD. Wish the interface was organized more intuitively -- or that my intuition was more like the NOD creators!!

    It will be in version 3 where you will be able to choose between a simple and advanced mode providing advanced settings.
