I have Nod32 security suite v3 with up to date windows vista 32bit. Sorry about this long thread but the more info i give will hopefully help. Until recently everything was fine and dandy then 1 day i couldnt connect to the internet, my broadband wizard asked me to disable my firewall, which i did. it then "refreshed my network settings" rebooted and hey presto i was connected. unfortunatley on rebooting nod32 ss firewall would not start, the antivirus and antispam were fine but the firewall option just turned red. ok so i tried to repair it using the add/remove program option this did not work so i tried to uninstal v3 and reinstal still no firewall i tried to uninstall using windows installer clean up utility as instructed on the eset website no luck so i tried system restore Fantastic... the firewall has loaded and i can still connect to the internet unfortunatley the anti spam module now fails to work and no firewall alerts come up for anything. it seems everything is allowed to connect to the internet. I again tried a reinstall. no success so How do i get the alerts back, the control of what connects to the internet, the antispam module to work and my hair to grow back ??
