A friend, at my recommendation, is trying NOD32 2.7 on his Windows SBS 2003 "server." Although this is a domain situation, there's virtually no real server stuff going on, except for DHCP. Email is local on each workstation, there's no web server running yet, etc. 1. I understand that Eset's licensing allows this use, treating the server as another workstation license, since he doesn't need remote admin, etc. 2. He's getting extreme slowdowns on file opens and creation. Unfortunately he runs several very old apps, using Paradox (Win, 5/6/7/ runtime. These require that the server deny, and workstations be blocked from requesting SMB 1 file locking. He's getting 30-second timeouts on file opens. And disabling AMON does not stick across a reboot. Is this behavior by design? Is there a tech FAQ on this? His present AVG/win firewall/MS Defender setup on the workstations never gave trouble like this. He's reluctant to try additional copies of NOD32 until the issue is worked out. He owns the one copy, which is presently uninstalled for the above reasons.
