    Hi. I apologize in advance for the length and if this isn't the right place to post this.

    I'm currently doing a 30 day eval for the Enterprise version for my company. It hasn't been going well. My first instinct is to say forget it and try something else, but the sorry state of the AV industry and the rave reviews of NOD32 are making me tough it out. Since this is apparently the only reliable, online avenue for support, here it goes.

    The latest issue is that I finally got NOD32 on a server yesterday and immediately noticed what I can only call stuttering. The server load hasn't really increased, ram is good, the server just stops responding for about a second, and then it comes back for about 10, and then just stops for a second again.

    The worst thing was last night. Apparently (near as I can tell) NOD32 and Windows Backup (SBS2003) aren't really compatible. The end result was a horribly crashed server. I tried to remote in from off site and couldn't get in. When I got onsite, the server was running very slowly. yet again, ram was fine, CPU wasn't pegged, it was just running very slowly. On top of that, all major system services were crashed IIS, sysmon, terminal services, ticket granting, etc. In other words it was just a very slow, useless shell.

    Checked the event viewer and again, it all started when the backup started. Below are the unique entries I could pull out of the event viewer, many of them were repeated many, many times.

    Is this just a matter of adding exclusions for the named files? I'm very hesitant to try this again. Oh, and there were no "custom" settings. Everything was left in its initial install configuration.

    Event Viewer:

    The Windows Server Update Services Server experienced an error while attempting to write to the log file.

    Tech support has finally gotten back to me in a way. I called them complaining about the lack of response, and suddenly the emails started flowing to the tune of about 1 a day. Phone support typically defers to email, which is understandable. They, at this point, have no reason for the crash. Apparently they don't think that exclusions are the issue. I have just pointed the original situtaiton out to them again to reemphisize that it was complaining about specific files.

    In the mean time I will take a look at the link and see whats there. You would (at least I would) expect a commercial grade project to come preconfigured for something like that, especially if the results are going to be this disasterous.

    So far this is feeling like working with open source software, where the author just doesn't know because it works for him, and your left supporting yourself (with the help of others) on forums. Not that i'm against open source.

    Thanks for the response.
