I am trying out the trial of Nod 32....I was currently using Kaspersky and wanted to see how this compares. I read the tutorial already from the stickey here but my question is: Are most of you running the IMON part of it? I have it disabled. Reason being when I ran Kaspersky's equivalent it slowed me way down and after disabling it I was smoking again. A lot of the readers on several forums I frequent say you don't need the internet monitoring as the running in the background feature or the on demand will catch it anyway theory. Or when you click on a downloaded file when you go to open it..it will also be caught. I also disable the mail part of both of these programs for the same reason. What are your folks settings and opinions on this? Thanks.
