    Was just wanting to know if the slow shutdown
    problem with Windows XP has been fixed in version 2
    of NOD32.

    I have been running NOD for almost a year now, and
    have been quite pleased. The one thing I did not like
    was having to do the registry hack to fix the shutdown
    problem.I have been doing quite alot of trolling on this
    forum looking at other AV programs, and have come
    to the conclusion that I will most likley stay with NOD
    if the shutdown problem was fixed in version 2.

    I am going to be reformatting and reinstalling NOD,
    this is why I am asking.

    All I can tell you is, I have no problems with booting/restarting/shutdown with NOD installed :)

    if you have boot sector checks on shutdown, and have a LOT of drives, or lots of virtual drives, the delay can be noticable - I'd turn the boot sector on shutdown checks OFF and see if that removes the delay... I noticed it when I had a lot of CD images mounted with several virtual drive utilities... I remove the setting but left "on access" checks in place, and my delay disappeared...

    Actually I had also a very slow shutdown too...
    But the reason why it was so slow is becuse NOD32 scanned the floppy which i don't have. So just uncheck the Floppy/Diskette scan and it should shutdown smooth if that's the issue you have ;)

    OS: Windows XP sp2

    Thanks for all the tips everyone.

    When I reinstall, if I have a shutdown
    problem, I will check these settings!
    Also, were is the scan floppy setting?

    It's in the AMON settings.
    I always disable that thing - Which is probably why I've never had a slowdown or the likes. I dont use floppies anyway :)

    Thanks everyone.

    I have one other question, a little
    off topic.
    When I renew my subscription, will
    I have the option to download the
    full version of NOD again?

    Yes as long as your license is valid, you can download new versions when they are released ;)
