For the past few weeks I’ve been testing various AV programs to find a suitable one to replace Symantec’s NAV bloatware. Right now my heart is set on NOD32 but I have one problem I need help with. I work from my home and I connect to my office through a VPN. Once I log into the VPN I access my work’s mainframe computer using MSIE. This has worked flawlessly using every AV program I’ve tried except NOD32. After I log in to my VPN and try to open MSIE it just sits there trying to access address 127.0.0.1. I’m aware this is the address for loopback. I went in NOD32 and disabled AMON, IMON, EMON and DMON thinking it has to be one of these components. I’ve even turned off my firewall. If I uninstall NOD32 the problem goes away. To me the problem is one of two things. (1) My VPN connection and NOD32 clash, or (2) there is some setting in NOD32 I have on or off causing the problem. To me this is probably something to do with the HTTP stuff in IMON. But if IMON is disabled why should there be a conflict? I never had this problem with NAV, Pc-cillin and AVG. However, I want to make NOD32 my NAV program but need to solve this conflict.
