    I was using nod32, but I decided to try McAfee virusscan enterprise 8.0i + McAfee Antispyware enterprise...
    My internet conection slowed down, is this normal? If Not, how can I fix this?

    Have you uninstalled NOD or simply disabled it? If the latter, have you disabled IMON and AMON?
    Not normal behaviour on my laptop. It is unlikely to be a conflict with your firewall as they appear to be compatible.

    Some suggestions;

    1. Make sure NOD is completely uninstalled.

    2. Install McAfee and apply Patch 10.

    3. Disable Buffer Overflow Protection.

    I`ve uninstalled NOD32 2.5...

    Why disable buffer overflow protection? It´s not important for a home user? Does it takes a lot of system resourse?

    As a Home user on a standalone computer, with a properly setup commercial firewall in place and hopefully a fully patched OS and browser, your chances of being hit by a BO attack are slim compared to those who run servers.

    In this respect don't forget that this AV is used primarily in a corporate/server environment as opposed to the Home.

    I only suggested disabling BO protection as this has been known to cause conflicts in the past with other software.
