    If AMON is disabled before a reboot, the demo will hang when windows xp begins to reload during the time the splash screen goes away and the icon is placed on the toolbar. In other words, splash screen stays, toolbar icon never gets loaded, and it appears windows xp stops loading anything else while waiting on NOD32.

    No comments from the peanut gallery I guess. Guess I'll be going right out and buying NOD32 now.

    I can confirm this happens with 2.50.25 as well. I just gave it a go.

    it's a good find - I doubt many would encounter this one without a roadmap, not meaning it shouldn't be fixed, but it's certainly a road less travelled (disabling AMON at all)...

    I guess that old time PC users, like me, who are still concerned about an AV program interfering with installations are most prone to discovering this problem. ;)

    Anyways, I hope that ESET fixes this soon because I always disable AV scanners when I install software...

    On the positive side, this is pretty much the only issue I've had w/ NOD32 so far!

    Also on the positive side I've to date not had AMON intefere with the installation of a single program EXCEPT where there was viral/malicious content. Oddly enough, this is exactly the reason I use NOD32 - to catch the stuff I don't want :)
