    hey, i just previously uninstalled/installed nod32 due to the matter of me getting huge amounts of lag non strop during gameplay, i ask others if theyre experiencing such lag and its a negative

    i searched here and there for solutions but it didnt work as well as i had hoped, i even looked at the faqs on this site but didnt really try the commands for winsock on prompt nor did i follow up on imon that well cos im not sure if im hurting my comp or the software, i tried winsock repair fix and it didnt work

    before i installed nod32 i had norton06 and it didnt affect anything i played, i removed it and installed nod32 and its interfereing with my gameplay

    can someone help me please, cos ive been playing with lag for the pass 5 days and getting pwned by noobs and its embarrassingly not fun at all with the mass dcs and whatnot

    PLEASE SOMEONE, ANYONE HELP ME FIX THIS PROBLEM!!

    yeap, ive configure imon, results still laggy

    ive disabled imon, results still laggy also

    tried on another game, still laggy

    why does imon hate my computer? or nod32 in general

    windows xp pro sp2
    amd ahtlon 64 x2 dual core processor 3800+
    1gb ram
    nvidia geforce 7900gs

    atm ive uninstalled nod32 cos i just cant seem to get it working smoothly and installed avg...
    please does someone have a solution cos i wanna use nod32 cos its the best av

    EDIT: i have no idea why, but even avg is causing lag within gameplay... this **** is pissing me right off, why is it that norton06 upon using never gave me such a tremendous hard time?

    NOD32 is lighter than AVG and especially Norton. I'm a heavy player of online games...NOD32 is the only antivirus that I've NOT had to disable the real time protection to play games and not experience increased lag.

    Considering you are now having problems with AVG and lag, it seems that it may be an issue with your net connection. Connection quality can vary from day to day, and I find that sometimes, my connection drops entirely for no visible reason. Lag is a common thing in online games, and being a heavy BF2142 player, I know how frustrating lag can be ;)

    make sure it isnt your net work connection first.
    then use the norton removal tools to remove norton 2006
    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
    then reboot and fix the winsocket.
    lots of people complain about nod32 after they have used norton.
    this is because norton doesnt uninstall cleanly so when you install nod32 it conflicts with the remaindents of norton.
    after using the norton removal tool and repairing the winsocket nod32 should run great

    im still new at using nod32 so im not sure how to do that

    EDIT: yeah, ok i just figured out how to do that, i excluded scanning of the folder

    its a private server for helbreath, and also im playing rumble fighter
    i would understand if only hb would be an issue for me, but seeing as how ive also tried rf ive been lagging and no one else around me is affected

    so atm right now, i got nod32 up again, its up to date and doesnt interfere with my net surfing, but on games it lags... i did a broadband check and yeah... internets ok, using av is just making my gaming lag... doesnt make sense to me at all

    Did you actually quit IMON by clicking the Quit button and restarted the computer?

    i had a separate partition just for my online games when i used to play. no av was installed, windows was in 16-bit color mode, many services were turned off, no sound card was even installed in my computer. the games graphics when downgraded as low as possible. my pc was really fast when online.
