i was wondering if the scanning technology used by v3 is the same as the one used in v2?
as for detection there is no difference between v.2 and v.3 so i think its the same scanning technology
oh ok..so, why are people complaining about v3 then?
Because there are differences between the two versions. Version 3 passes internet traffic through a proxy server whereas version 2 does not.
i'm sorry but what does that mean exactly? and is it a good or a bad thing?
good for internet security, bad for some bugs,especially in file transfer...but people in eset r working hard to get it working perfectly.
BUT - I just checked ekrn.exe, which I gather is the NOD32 v 3 proxy server program.
I'm running a P 4, 3.2 with 2 gig of ram. I am only using NOD32 AV version 3 (not the smart security bundle).
The AV is using a lot of resources:
memory usage: 25,544
peak memory usage: 86,652
The whole idea about using NOD 32 v3 was that it was supposed to be light on resources; I do not call this light!
25 megs isn't that much. Just about the same as explorer.exe.
