I have been a Norton Antivirus user since about 1992. Recently I made a "booboo" and the result was that Norton could not be uninstalled and also no new programs would load on my drive. That's ok... I had a new harddrive in the box and was looking for an excuse to upgrade. After the fiasco with Norton I decided it was time for me to grow up. I did quite a bit of research and ended up with the trial version of NOD32. It seems to work and caught two trojans already. The interface is kind of screwy but I'm getting used to it. My question is...Sometimes my emails have something like this at the end of the email: > __________ NOD32 1.1185 (20050801) Information __________ > > This message was checked by NOD32 antivirus system. > http://www.eset.com Sometimes I see this message and sometimes not. I can't see any rhyme or reason to it. Has anybody got an explanation? The message appears even when there are no attachments. Is there a way to keep this from showing up in the email other than turning off the email scan function? Is this just in the trial version or is it in the full blown version also. If I send an email, it's really no one's business what security software I have on my computer. This seems to me to be a blatant attempt for the company to use the users email system as a pathway for advertising as well as a heads up to someone that might want to know what defensive measures you have in place. I am thinking of buying the full blown version but the more I think about it, the more this bothers me.
