    Hi there, i have a question. Do i really need to activate the adv. heuristics to have good protection from nod32? Enabling them makes my computer really slow (a k6-2, it's almost a miracle to have windows xp and a modern antivirus running on it) so i deactivated it and instead put the normal heuristics at the highest level. Is this enough?

    That depend. NOD32 is able to detect all ITW viruses without heuristic. However, AH is very good. AH is able to detect many malware not detected by Eset yet. Anyway, you can have AMON without AH and scan your disk all the weeks with AH enabled. And all files you download, scan it with AH.

    I meant all known ITW malware.
