    My problem is : I wish to rid myself of Symantec Norton Anti-virus and have heard that Nod32 compares more than favourably with Norton and is less resource iintensive.

    So I downloaded trial version of Nod32, installed ok but have problem which is :

    I get the message: "Microsoft Outlook. Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request."

    I use Pocomail in conjunction with Mailwasher Pro.

    Is there anyway to setup Nod32 in conjunction with these programs or am I stuck with Norton's ?.

    Your advice/assistance would be appreciated.

    I believe that error is caused because NOD32 is configured to use the MAPI interface, which you don't want... You can stop the error by disabling that particular option. See this:

    Cannot find "Use MAPI interface"

    Many thanks for your reply. Will try again and see if I can fix the problem when I get home after the football.

    Your suggestion regarding MAPI interface fixed my problem. Many thanks.
    I have 2 further questions which I have not been able find an answer to on the forum.
    1. I have used nod32kui.exe as my virus scanner in
    Pocomail for checking my e-mails and each e-mail
    appears as scanned in IMON status page. OK. I have
    also used same file as virus scanner within my
    download manager, but nowhere in Nod32 can I see
    that downloaded file (zip, rar) has been automatically
    scanned at download completion (eg like in NAV). How
    can I be sure that downloaded file has been scanned
    and is safe to open?.
    2. When I open Nod32 interface , I am confronted with
    the following Run Nod32 and Local buttons. Naturally
    if I select Run Nod32 button, I can manually run scan,
    clean selected drives. However if I select Local button
    (scan local disks) I get the following again :
    "Either there is no default mail client or the current
    mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please
    run MS Office Outlook and set as default e-mail client."
    If I hit Ok button on this dialog box Nod32 scanning window appears automatically and scan begins without any further imput from me. A quick check that "use MAPI interface box is still unchecked in Nod32 set up. It is. Is this normal or a "bug" within Nod32?.

    My apologies for such along post and probably naieve questions. However, your advice/assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards
