Yeah it scanned my stuff in 10mins, usually takes 13-16
Way to go, eset. The new features indeed sound exciting. Since it's a beta, I might as well skip this one. Yes I'm sort of paranoid
Is anyone elses event log completely blank? Mine is and it's weird, it's usually full of stuff in there
I downloaded the Nod beta version, did a over the top install,
experienced no problems, and all settings including the user
name and password were kept intact, program updated new
anti virus definitions auto immediately after reboot, and scan
time was noticeably faster, the beta version gets along nicely
with BOC and PG, all in all this is a very nice beta, and I am
looking forward to the final release.
Brian N I checked event log mines logging fine no problems.
Only 1 entry re NOD32 kernel having submitted statistical info..
Try using the 2.7 beta trial - it has the username and password already embedded so there is no need to already have a username and password for it to pick up. In fact in this case it should be better to install 2.7 beta trial as a clean install and not over the top of a 2.5 trial version.
Beautiful release. I like the "upgrade" ability and keeping all my settings intact. I also like the new prompts on the first run about Potentially Unwanted Apps.
I do have one question:
I assume (and please correct me if I'm wrong) that Potentially Unwanted Apps is for Adware/etc and Pontentially Unsafe Apps is for network management tools and the like that can be used for nefarious purposes?
Keep up the good Work Eset. Off to play with the new version.
Potentially unwanted applications are programs that might not actually pose a security risk; these applications usually require a user's consent before installation. They may affect your system's behavior in the following ways:
a) showing windows that would normally not open
b) activation and running of processes hidden to the user
c) increased consumption of system resources
d) change of search results
e) communication with the application provider servers
Potentially unsafe applications - enables detection of commercial programs which might be exploited for malicious purposes, etc. (e.g. tools for remote access and administration)
^ From the help file, and does sound like Adware stuff
with nod32 2.7 beta has the cleaning improved? so not as many manual removals?
Great job ESET!!!
How good is Anti-Stealth technology?
With Anti-Stealth disabled, these nasties are invisible to Windows, NOD32 and other AV programs
yes, but it could be a possible FP also..
Maybe, but not THE one with the lowest resource usage anymore..!
Eset claim that on their homepage and comparisons, but e.g. KAV 6/2006 uses fewer resources, like below 10 MB of RAM and NOD32's RAM comsumption is above 15 MB, sometimes even around 20 MB of RAM..
They should improve it, in order that NOD32 use a max. of 10 MB of RAM and if idle below 10 MB..
Or they can't longer claim that NOD32 have the lowest resource usage on the market..
As a matter of interest, what do all these security packages use in total.
Resources should include virtual mem (etc) too.
I have no idea about this, just wondered.
Can anyone reproduce my problem where Vista's built in defragmenter will no longer open if NOD32 2.7 is installed?
Well I think this might be a bit unrealistic, but if it's possible I'm all for it. I too have noticed that resource usage, both ram and disk space have gone up with 2.7. Also, amon seems a little heavier. I like the new features but am afraid of what version 3 will be if 2.7, which is a precursor to version 3, is heavier.
And it seems like the on-demand scanner is taking a little bit longer to scan.
Works well for me on my XP machine.
Looking forward to the final release.
Is this active (running) rootkit?
I downloaded the trial version of NOD2.7 . Cool,... faster in-depth scan than ver 2.5.
But I can't get any update, my latest virus definition is still 1.1842 (27 Oct 2006).
What's the latest virus definition ?
You have latest virus definitions.
From the help file:
Enable Anti-Stealth technology - Enables NOD32 to detect rootkits that uses "stealth" technique to hide away from other programs.
When manual scan is ran after only a few seconds the scan window closes. I have sent email to eset with system info attached.
There is an active thread about this in the BETA forum:
Hope ESET resolve it fast
I was hoping that the method of excluding files/folders
in "Scanning Targets" would have been make easier...
like it is in Perfect Disk.
Does this beta version update automatically to newer betas/final version or must I download and install them separately?
Not sure Jaska, but it looks like you should be able to easily install over to update even if that is necessary.
