    Hi,

    Tomorrow I intend to install NOD32 on a relative's WIN98se computer. I will be buying a one year single user license. My question is must I download the nod32en9x,exe installer again, or can I use the installer that I have from when I bought a NOD32 license for my computer in December 2005 and then use the newly purchased license username and password to activate it?

    We are on slow dial-up connections, so I was hoping that I wouldn't have to download the installer again.

    You can use your old installer . Just put the right username and pass.

    It's actually better to download a new installer, that way NOD32 won't have to download a huge signature database. You'll also install the newest version right away and not by download.

    The first update is always large so if the installer you have is version 2.50.41 or newer, there's no need to download it from our website.

    Thanks Marcos, my version is 2.50.44, so I take it I can avoid another lengthy download. It's my wife's uncle's computer and he has NAV2003. The renewal is up to $30. He has an old Dell 500mhz PIII computer and I like NOD32 so much that I figure I can improve his protection while at the same time relieving some of the load on his system to improve performance by switching him to NOD32.
