    "I said hey babe take a walk on the wild side". I have done just that with many different seucrity software's over the past 2 years, but I'm ready to give Nod32 a trial because of all the great things I've read here and on their website. Anything I need to know?

    Thanks, but is this really necessary with Nod? I mean it should give top notch security with normal install right? I guess what I meant to ask was anything I need to know before installing.

    No, the default settings do give adequate protection. Be sure to remove any other AV you may have installed.

    There isnt really. NOD works out of the box. No messing with "trusted Zones" or exclusions or any of that rubbish. Minimum fuss, maximum effectiveness. :thumb:

    Thanks for all the relplies. I will definitely uninstall my current AV and run one of my reg cleaners. I see one of you uses Comodo Pro which I also use, but what about Cyberhawk Pro? Do I need to unistall that as well, or does Nod32 get along with it ok?

    Hi duke,
    nod32 does seem to be compatible with almost any app.

    BSFS will give more protection due to "maximum efficiency" mode instead of default "maximum compatibility", as well as the "potentially unsafe" options. They (BSFS :) ) are also set in a way that NOD requires minimum user input. Everything is done automatically - cleaning, deleting, submitting samples to eset, updating...
    Blackspear is using these settings for his customers, it is very convenient for an average user/newbie to have everything done for him automatically.

    However, a power user/administrator may want to have a manual control over some activities, so I recommend you to carefully study those settings and customize NOD according to your own needs.

    Regards. ;)

    ummm... default install - adv. heuristics is turned off isn't it?

    take the thread - it's going to help you understand how to best make NOD32 work for YOU...

    I would tune every application I could tune... that's me though... and I'm a heavy duty dealer of email bounces, so I have a decent amount of exposure to new variants of email borne scumware... so I INSIST on adv. heuristics being turned WAYyyy UP!

    UH Don't recall, I think you are right AH is off in the on demand scanner, only thing I remember having to turn on in AMON though was PUA's, I think AH was on already, could be wrong though.

    I have had no problems running NOD and Cyberhawk Pro together under both XP and Vista;)

    Yes, AH is turned off by default. Good point!

    More reasons to go through BSFS. :D

    Wrong - Advanced heuristics (AH) are ON by default for AMON , IMON , DMON and EMON

    I think they have to be set for AH. Pretty sure of that one.

    On some profiles it is OFF (e.g. Control Center profile or the Local disk profile) but it is ON for the In-depth analysis

    Yes, they are set. I just briefly went through BSFS...

    Thamk you for the precise answer. You're quite versed in NOD. :thumb:

    Cheers.

    I have NOD32 and Cyberhawk Pro running with Online Armor v2 with firewall. No problems at all, very sweet. Just a small problem a few months ago with a fp from CH that NOD was logging keystrokes but CH seem to have addressed that problem now.

    I tried to run NOD with SSM, Cyberhawk, DSA and Windows firewall. All together at the same time. No problem :)
