    I just purchased nod32 from the computer company I bought my pc with newegg.com. I was going to purchase it anyway from the website but this was a great deal with the pc. My specs when it arrives in a few days is as follows: Lenovo IdeaCenter K Series K2.3 Pentium dual-core E2180(2.00GHz) 3GB DDR2 500GB Intel GMA 3100 Desktop with Vista Home Premium..I hope to be an active part of the forum:)

    Is there a list or sticky of the applications that should be run with NOD 32..? I was going to run spybot and maybe sas..Do they play well? Do I need them?

    There is nothing you must run additionally . Vista is a lot more secure by itself than any previous Windows . I run Windows Defender in addition to NOD32 (it is built in Vista)

    Software based firewalls are snake-oil. Chances are is you have more than one computer you will have a router. Unless you bought an awfull router it will have an SPI firewall.

    I have ESS because I wanted Anti-Spam not for the firewall.

    They don't do anything at all. Read the link in my signature.

    It would be interesting to post your contention and webpage on the firewall section of the forum to get feedback from people more knowledgeable than me on the subject.

    It's not my own article, it's just one I completely agree with.
    I write network based applications and I have nothing but issues with these "Personal Firewall". I also previously worked for one of the largest providors of Internet to by country in their faults department.

    A few more questions..Sorry for being such a pain...:)

    When it gets come time to renew after the year..Since I got NOD 32 as part of my computer's package ..Will it say "you have x days remaining to repurchase a license"

    Is the Renewal price cheaper then purchasing a whole new license..or are you in fact purchasing a new license? Also Could I when it comes time buy a two year or more just to buy it and forget about it? (Im on a fixed income but would rather pay for more then a 2 year license if I could just to know its there and forget it sort of thing)

    With my new Vista machine I have NOD32 v3.0.669.0, SpywareBlaster, SuperAntiSpyware and Windows Defender, they all live very happily together.

    I have the Vista firewall activated and am behind a NAT router. ;)
