nope, it's all about efficiency, and who wants to compete with the other AV soft out there, which is maybe more efficient in this particular area, then Eset must either reengineer that and bring it to the same or better level, or can't no longer claim, the lowest/smallest (RAM) footprint..!
If you don't understand that or what I mean or what's the point and case, then please don't responst to that, thx.
Wonderful NOD32 v2.7 BETA coming a more improvement than previous v2.5. She scanned found a another few infection from Outlook Express Inbox Data. I thought v2.5 didn't it. I feel bit weird !! Well, So I pleased the v2.7 is better performance scanner about less 38 seconds off than previous version. (Maybe increase lots numbers of files)
We will wait for heard a new version 3.0 Security Suite. I quote say "Optional will Little extra cost for upgrade to 3.0 Security Suite with exist licence will replace a new licence key for v3.0 as possible"
This v2.7 are
found a bug, only the windows shown as update, NOD32, IMON, DMON AND EMON in control center window are the ones "incomplete", other ones are complete/normal, i installed over version 2.51.30 (english).
using windows xp w/sp2, no graphics card.
Obviously, there will be a dependence of RAM usage and general resource footprint on machine specifics including OS setup and other running processes. Just to provide one objective snapshot of NOD32 vs, for example, KAV applicable to a single PC, the composite image depicts RAM/VM usage from the same boot partition where the only difference was the specific AV installed. Each shot was taken after install/reboot with no difference in any of the other launched applications. Completely default installations for both products. Both are the latest beta versions of the respective products.
My personal opinion, if you either posturing about, worried about, or making purchase decisions based on these differences, you're focusing on the wrong target from either side of the fence.
Nice to see.
Also I agree I will not mind the numbers unless they ae big enough.
thanx for new ver of Nod32 , i will try it today.
update worked like a breeeeze. Could not believe that it hardly needed any intervention.
Only thing I want to know is whether the improvements are activated by default or some settings are needed to be tweaked
But I don,t see any change in GUI. It needs to be user friendly.
It has been known that the giu will be changed in NOD32 v3. This is still version 2.x, hence the gui is still same.
Ah, I did not know that. Thnaks.
A positive comment:
Installed the 2.7 beta a few days ago on my XP-home machine (Dutch with English version of NOD32), over the top of my existing version.
Everything fine !!! No problem with scanning, no problem with updating the defs today.
Thanks Eset !!!
Keep up the good work !
Same as I found. I am running Win2000 Pro SP4.
after trying nod32 beta
its very smart and fast, i just try 18 hour
so every thing working good with nod32 beta
no problems untile now
good job nod32 team
and i will talk about kav or kis 2006 , its not fast and its slow my pc

i will keep trying and if i have any problem with nod32 beta i will tell you.
i forget to tell you about my pc
windows xp pro sp2
1500 intel cpu
I have been testing NOD32 2.7 since last Saturday. Prior to this, I was using trial of KAV6.
RAM usage of NOD32 2.7 is slightly higher at an average of 18 - 20 MB. KAV uses about 12MB. But you'll still feel that NOD is much lighter. Startup of NOD is also lighter.
Deep scanning of my harddisk using NOD32 2.7 takes around only 20 minutes, slightly faster than NOD32 2.5 . Compared to KAV, KAV takes more than 2 hours to complete deep scanning my harddisk.
Last week, my PC was infected with a trojan horse that KAV missed, but NOD detected it.
Overall, I'd give NOD a thumb up for this new version.
Cannot update, states no username/password. Guess trial users still can't update... There is NO embedded username/password in the beta download.
I've stated this before, as has others...
I have asked for someone from Eset to take a look at this.
As far as i can see there is a username & password in the beta's for trial users (use the downloadlink with "eval" in it).
I am using the trial beta and I can update. This morning just updated to signature 1.1843 and moment ago, updated to 1.1844.
I was just about to submit a post about version 2.51 not scrolling any more when doing manual scans, then I noticed this Beta release, Problem solved, it scrolls now no problem
i install nod32 2.7 Beta
it eating too much my ram
Anybody having problem with the generation of user name and key can download trial of beta from here.
Resource usage on my system( XP Home SP2). Is it OK?
it's OK aigle. The same for me.
I am using NOD first time. I enabled all option( max security), no slow down.
Did a usual system sacn and another deep scan. It,s fast.
Don,t know whether they have got any improvement in spyware/ adware detection than before? Also anybody tried it against rootkits?
