    Just downloaded the NOD32 trial version - I was using AVG but saw the test-results for all the virusscanners and AVG didn't exactly perform that good ( can always go back to it ) - but have a few questions .

    The manual I downloaded says you have to configure the pop-scaner by redirecting to localhost - seems natural- but I can't find this setup anywhere in NOD-control center .I want to use the scanner with the Opera-M2 mailclient as this is the one I use the most . I think it works just fine with default settings but can't really tell if NOD is scanning the incoming mail .

    Could smeone clarify this for me ?? Also : where can I configure exclusion-list for files and folders I don't want NOD32 to scan ??

    NOD scans any mail coming through port 110, which is pop3 mail. In the tray icon, look under Imon, setup. NOD will append a message on all mail coming into your computer if you desire.

    Under Amon, setup you will find a tab to exclude files or directories from being scanned.

    Blackspear's guide has many screenshots.

    If I decide to buy it , is it possible to purchase in U.K . ?? They offer a 2-year license option which seems unavailable on the dutch reseller .

    tsk, tsk... the netherlands has a national distributor, and Eset encourages all Dutch nationals to purchase through that distributor.

    If 2 year is required - you could ask the dutch distributor to make them available, or I guess purchase online from someone who offers 2 years from their online store - [HINT]we do too...[/HINT].

    Open the control panel by double-clicking the NOD32 icon in the system tray...

    Click on the AMON link in the left window, then click "Setup" - once the grey window appears, the last but one tab is "Exclusion" - you can add either temporary or permanent exclusions, and you can do file-types, directories and boot sectors.... include and exclude sub-folders.

    Bought a two-year license yesterday , and promptly received my registration info . I let NOD32 scan my entire system immediately ( with updated signatures DB ) and it immediately located 6 trojans previously undetected by AVG or Norton . This one I'm going to like :)
