    lt's probally been answered before(l did a quick search but couldn't find anything).
    Does having NOD32 on whilst playing online games,mainly FPS games,slow the ping speed at all.
    l've been turning it off as l thought that it might,as it has to analyze anything that you download,am l correct?
    Thanks for any response.

    Hm well I've certainly never done any formal investigation into this but I am a very avid gamer and have used NOD for a few years now. I have not had any (noticeable anyway) slowdown when hosting Operation Flashpoint, Call of Duty, Battlefield 1942 & Vietnam, Delta Force Blackhawk Down, C&C Generals/Zero Hour, and several others. I have also played them on other people's servers and really remain one of the better connected, even doing very well on Euro servers while residing here in the southern US.

    My ping is really low (amongst the lowest) whenever I play online.
    What difference do you notice yourself when you play with NOD on and off?

    Very hardcore online gamer here....since switching to NOD32 quite a while ago, it's the first antivirus I've used, where I can leave it fully enabled without any impact on system performance. Other antivirus programs I've tried, (and believe me...I've tried a lot of em)...I've always had to disable them, games ran a lot smoother with them disabled. NOD32...no difference in how the games play...enabled or disabled.

    And current system specs, although she's getting a bit old now and not bleeding edge, P4 3.4GHz, 1.5 gigs of RAM, Raptor 10krpm SATA hard drive. Usually playing bf'42/DC/Vietnam/bf2.

    However...an antivirus program usually shouldn't affect your latency much. Smoothness of the game, yes. But latency..usually a software firewall is what would affect that.

    But good firewall shouldn't do that either. ZoneAlarm is NOT one of such firewalls though... Sygate and Outpost worked fine in all conditions.
