    I understand that the new versions of NOD32 use a proxy server, but I just saw a suggestion elsewhere that you don't have to allow that. Is that correct? If so what would be the pros and cons? I'm still using version 2.7 because I don't want to go down this road.

    Thanks, but is there anything explaining the pros and cons of using/not using the default proxy settings.

    ESET moved from winsock scanning for HTTP and email to a proxy setup for version 3. The idea is to prevent malware from ever reaching your hard drive. This link gives you a general outline on proxy servers for antivirus programs.
