    Hi,

    I am looking for a suitable AV solution for my Father who is running windows XP and dial up. (Will be getting broadand next year when its avalailble)

    Couple of questions on Nod32. (I know its has very good heuristics and light on resources :D )

    1) What are the average size of incremental updates?

    2) Does the autoupdate work with dial up (does it automatically check when my Dad would conect to the interenet through dial up)

    Many Thanks

    Jlo

    yes - my bother runs NOD32 on XP and dialup, and is more than happy with it.

    Auto-updates are different sizes- sometimes only a few tens of kb to several hundred kb - if you get a program update, that is likely to be 2-3mb.

    You can configure the system to check when dialup occurs.

    regards

    7 to 70k on average.


    Yes, just make sure you have “Dialup” set in amongst your settings for type of connection.

    There is a thread here on tweaking up Nod32 and checking that you settings are correct.

    Hope this helps…

    Cheers :D

    Happily using NOD on two puters with dial up on both. The trial however has to download the entire def file for each update but the full version updates incrementally, as Blackspear said usually in the 7-70kb range, today's was large though 108kb but it took only about 45 seconds.
