    Yes, I have read thru other threads re this issue and its possible links to IMON, so here's a heads-up that it still seems to exist:

    > NOD32 2.70.32
    > Windows XP SP1
    > Win XP firewall
    > No previous malware or virus infection
    > NAV2003 previous AV - uninstalled completely

    > Shutdown pre NOD: 5-7 secs
    > Shutdown post NOD: circa 20 secs

    What new do we know re this? o_O

    Hi !

    Is it possible to be that

    I recommend you do the following:

    1) Download Symantec Norton removal tool here

    2) Download the latest version of NOD32
    Trial version or
    Full paid version

    3) Download WinsockXPfix

    4) Goto Control Panel-> Add/Remove programs and Uninstall NOD32

    5) Reboot

    6) Goto C:\Program files and manually delete the folder ESET

    7) Run the Norton removal tool to ensure all tracks of Norton have been removed.Reboot if necessary!

    8 ) Run the WinsockXPfix tool . It will repair your Winsock , if it is possible corrupted . Reboot if necessary!

    9) Run Windows Disk Clean-up to eliminate all unnecessary temporary files . Open Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Clean up . Choose your main drive . Check everything from the list and press OK . Wait .

    10) Install NOD32 from the file you just downloaded in step 1
    Use Typical settings

    11) Make sure you have stable i-net connection and NOD32 (nod32krn.exe) is allowed to go through your firewall and Update NOD32

    I also strongly recommend you upgrade to XP Service Pack 2 via Windows Update

    Tell us how are things going on now . ;)
