    I currently have and use NOD32 on my laptop and IMHO, believe it fits my enviroment and love it, since changing from KAV 5.0. A problem though has come up in the form of testing for the company I work for. I was given a copy of KAV 6.0 to test and report, seems as though the company is thinking of buying kAV for use on the WAN... Though I'd love to say no to them, I can't, so I wanted to know if I can in fact install KAV 6.0 on my system, that uses NOD32. I basically want to test KAV for a week with the test files that I'll be sent from our corporate offices, but in no way do I want to un-install NOD32, then once done with KAV, re-install and go over all my settings.

    So, can the 2, not running at the same time, be installed on a computer, or does one have to go? If I can use KAV to test, what must I do to disable NOD32, just unchecking the boxes will do it, because I noticed when I go to IMON, the QUIT button states that IMON will be removed from the registry and won't load up again. I don't plan to use KAV in the background, mainly, i plan to put in my 2 hours a day with it, the files I get sent, document everything, and then figure out how to unload KAV and have NOD32 back up in realtime, call me biased, but NOD is what I trust, has never let me down. Any suggestions would be great, thank you.

    Hi Red Dawn

    Don't know what your options are, but one thing you could do is get First Defense-ISR from Raxco(see leapfrog forum). That way you could set up a test snapshot, in which you uninstall NOD, install KAV test away, and then when down, make the whole thing like it never happened.

    you can use nod32 admin version to generate configuration settings, when you update from local source, your settings will be restored.

    This is right but completely ... If you install more than two antiviruses (especially these two) your may get to system failure. Keep only one AV
