    I have a few questions on ESET NOD 32

    -I'm just coming off of a Norton Internet security 2011 which I used for about a year.. the last version of NOD I used was version 4. I'm concerned about two things:

    1). my system is a pretty low end machine. It has two gigs of RAM, a 500 GB hard drive and it's a Pentium R (bought in 2006). You think it will run ESET fairly well?

    2). as far as renewals, if I buy a one-year license I had read somewhere on this forum, do I automatically at the end of 2012, have to purchase another license at the cost of $40 (or as long as the license is good I can upgrade)?

    -Hello,

    Many antimalware companies do not provide free version upgrades. The version you bought is the version you are stuck with; and if the vendor stops providing signature updates before your license for that version has expired, you have to purchase a new license to get the latest version of the software and updates. can you clarify this? I am a bit confused. Thanks! Matt

    1. You should have no problem running NOD32 on your machine.
    2. As long as your license is valid, version upgrades are free.

    FYI. I run ESS on an old AMD Athlon 2800+ with ONLY 512MB of RAM installed.
    And I don't even notice that I have ESS installed. :thumb:

    Also FYI it uses between 50-100 MB of RAM (in general that is but it might be lower in some cases) but in return it's very light on I/O usage. But I guess you already know that since you have used ESETs products before ;)
