    Hello Everyone,

    I'm Dave and just bought NOD32 today and began posting here today. Everyone here seems so friendly and I want to congratulate you all on making this forum feel like a 'home away from home'.

    With Nod32 I have a couple of questions.

    1. Is there a version 2.0 out now? If it is - is it fully functional and do you advise using it instead of version 1.0 which I have now.

    2. I suppose I can't disable the splash screen in version 1.0

    3. Will emails be automatically deleted in future versions if a worm or virus is found?

    4. Can I get NOD to leave a signature that it has checked an email & it is virus free with a link to the NOD site? I think this is a good way of advertising it too as well as others knowing their emails have been scanned before they receive them. I noticed this feature in some emails from NOD support - am I able to use this feature?

    Thanks everyone

    Dave

    You're most welcome.

    Stick to v1.0 for the moment - v2.0 is scheduled to be released this month.

    Not recommended ;)

    Depends on your configuration. Standard configuration: yes.

    Personally, I'm not that fond of such a signatures. Then again: if you wish: create a signature in your email client.

    regards.

    Thanks very much Paul.

    Also I had a couple of problems with my mouse freezing and couldn't figure out why some programs froze when I tried to open them. Zoom Player, Your Uninstaller & Tweak Xp Pro all froze when trying to open them. Other programs seemed ok. (so far)

    I tried including them in the 'exclude list' and the freezes ceased. All I can gather is that these are graphics or graphics intensive programs. After 1st installing NOD & rebooting this did not occur. It just seemed to start at some point. As soon as I excluded them everything was fine. Is this normal?

    Are my settings correct? I'm using default settings.

    Dave

    These settings should do okay.

    Dave,

    These apps most probably don't freeze; your assumption is a correct one - all files coming with the programs are being scanned, and that might take a while. Excluding is an option.

    As for configuring NOD32, have a look at our screen shots. (Opt for "scan all files" apart from your exclusions).

    regards,

    paul

    Thanks. I tried to copy all the settings. In the extensions list there is a bracket with an asterix beside it - that is removed in your list. What are these files?
