    I have NOD32 Ver 2.70.16 base/std. version running under XP Home SP2, and have spent considerable time configuring it.

    Now that Ver. 2.70.23 is out, (1) do I have to uninstall the existing version prior to installing the new version or can I install the new version "over" the old version, (2) assuming I can install "over," will I lose my existing configurations?

    Perhaps the forum moderator would consider adding the gist of my question to the relatively new FAQ page. TIA. Nella

    Just had the very same question in the previous thread:) Haven't got an answer as of yet.
    Merry Xmas!

    I need the answer to that as well. Also, what exactly was the upgrade? Is it really necessary to install it now?

    racketeer66,

    I'm embarrassed that I didn't notice your post, before I sent mine in. Guess I had too much rum egg nog lately<g>.

    Will be interesting to see what the experts say, probably tomorrow. Happy holidays. Nella

    I just installed over the top and didn't lose any settings. It just prompted me that the updates I had were newer than what I was installing and that I should run an update immediately after a reboot.

    Everything is A-OK.

    Any version upgrades that are required are in fact pushed. There is no need to download a minor update like this unless you are having an issue and the issue has addressed in the particular update.

    Cheers :D

    No harm done, Dear Nella:)
    In fact, I know about the stuff Blackspears (HI, Master, Ho U doin:)), wrote, still I like 2 have the recent version installed. Personal paranoia.:)
    And despite all there is no easy way to save Your settings exist. It does NOT preserve previous fine-tuning, does not even let me install upon existing predecessor.
