Some time ago I started this topic in the LnS-forum here, because I thougt that this firewall made internet browsing slower in my W7 64-bit system. As it turned out it wasn't LnS but NOD32 4.0.474 in combination with LnS and other firewalls which caused the problem. I have been using NOD32 and LnS for many years in my former XP-system and never encountered any speed-problem whatsoever, therefore I was surprised to see this decline in speed in my new W7-system, which should be faster than my old XP-system. I spent quite some time in finding what caused this problem, please read the topic start in the LnS-forum as mentioned above. My questions are: do more people here experience the speed-problem in W7 64-bit, using NOD32 version 4 in combination with a firewall? Could somebody from Eset tell me what possibly could be the cause of this problem, why does NOD32 in combination with a firewall make internet browsing slower, and why does it affect some systems and doesn't affect other systems?
