    We installed NOD32 today on a 486DX4 with 8 mb of RAM. Windows 95. IE 4sp2

    AMON, NOD32 modules installed.

    No problems running the AV, but RTM obviously a bit too heavy for this ancient box. Interesting thing was that the computer stayed stable.

    May try bumping up the RAM a bit to see what happens.

    :D

    We are approaching F-Prot territory here :eek:

    Before you consider defeat with the RTM.

    Have you tried tweaking the AMON setup?

    For example, OPTIMIZE SCANNING in Methods and not scanning ALL FILES in Detection?

    But bumping up the RAM is probably the best bet.

    Is this the new computer you promised yourself on your birthday or is this "one of the top of the range models" you sell to your clients? :D :D

    :D :D

    This is a PC I bought for $1 just for parts several months ago. Made sure everything was plugged in, and darn if it didn't boot up.

    I've already bumped up the RAM to 20 MB. F-PROT is running without issue, and without any perceived lag. Will be trying NOD32 next to see what happens.

    Now you know what I do on my days off... :D

    Quite a bit of fun there JimIT. Properly marketed you might be able to get several hundred dollars for a working retro system like that.
    I wonder, if we had a NOD32 benchmark tool what sort of figures you could get it to pump out?
