    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.

    Hey Bucky...welcome to Wilders!


    NOD32 appends this message to emails that it has scanned. By default, I think the option is to always add this message.

    You can go into the IMON setup and change it to only add this to infected files, or never at all.

    You may get an email or two here and there with this message and not see any attachments. Well NOD32 will delete the infection, if any, and notify you of it.

    This is part of the trial and full version. Just set the option that suits you best.

    I hope you decide to continue using NOD32, and welcome to the club! :D

    Capp...

    Man you responded back within two minutes of my posting this message! I really appreciate it. I made the changes as you suggested. I looked through the settings initially but must have overlooked that option.

    I am semi sort of new to this security thing although I have been running NAV and a firewall for many years now. I thought I was very secure but I have come to find out lately that I was only partially secure. Live and Learn I guess.

    Looks like NOD32 will be getting a couple dollars from me in the next few days. Meanwhile I'll be looking for a few more pieces of security software.

    Once again, thanks for your help.

    The default is for incoming email I believe. So you are the only one who sees it unless you forward a email you received.

    Thanks Bucky...always glad to help :)

    I feel it's always good to get a quick response. Not much more iritating when you post a question and it takes days to get a response.

    Good luck

    Hi Bucky, I'll add to the welcoming party as well :D

    If you haven't already, I would suggest a run through "Extra settings for Nod32"

    As to security software, take a look at the link in my signature which will show you several people’s setups...

    Cheers :D
