    Hello again!

    For other NOD32 users that play online games -- Do you add the application to the exclusion list, or do you let NOD32 scan web traffic for it?

    The only time you'll have a problem is if you get a definition update whilst gaming. This will lag you out for a short while.
    Two options, either accept that or turn updates off while you game online.

    I haven't had any problems so far with NOD32 being on while in a game, even when it is updating.

    I'm not involved in super competitive online gaming, so an occasional update won't kill anyone ;)

    I noticed this in the past but totally forgot about that. I expected it would be fixed no.

    It's the first antivirus program I've used that I haven't felt the need to shut it off while gaming. Prior AV programs, I'd disable while I was playing some heavier online games, such as some of the Battlefield series.

    Updates with NOD32 are relatively small, you shouldn't experience a slowdown even while online gaming..unless you're on a very slow connection like 1/2 a meg or less, or dial up or something like that.

    as YeOlde said - I rarely think about turning off nod32 - I did today while patching a new installation of BF2142, because the installer is a 360Gb or so installer - MASSIVE amounts of archives to install. During gaming I just turn to whatever game I want without thinking of turning off NOD32 - I run the BF series and eve-online - my machine is running an E6600 (going to upgrate to an E6850 this month) w/2Gb of RAM and dual overclocked 8800GTS cards in SLI bridged mode, my sound is x-fi - and I have never thought that my machine was running slower because of nod32! ;)

    I never turn it off if I wanna play a game, be it online or offline. I only turn it off if I'm working with sfx archives as it's painfully slow having NOD32 enabled. That's about it ;)
