    I checked my e-mail this morning and found that I was a winner of a licence for NOD.

    I was a little disappointed as I was not very impressed with the later betas and the first version of 2. I experienced long bootup times and a general slowdown on my computer, so I had decided not to renew my annual license in June.

    But since I was a winner I decided to try and give NOD another go, hoping that I may be able to use it as a backup scanner to AVP 3.5 that I have on an older computer here. This is the same computer that I had trialed the earlier versions of NOD 2.

    So I disabled the KAV Monitor and installed NOD with AMON enabled. Compared to my past experience, Eset has obviously worked very hard on this AV. Bootup times had considerably improved and the general speed of my computer seemed to increase considerably using AMON rather than the AVP Monitor.

    In addition on its first full scan, NOD picked up the Win32.Lovsan worm/virus. I had wondered why in the previous 24 hours I was getting these strange messages about the RPC, which I had never seen before.

    So I am very happy with the present version of NOD and I am going to use it as my Primary scanner on this box. Even though it is a lowly Pentium II, 400MHz, 192 MB RAM, it is flying along at present with no slowdown whatsoever, with AMON and IMON enabled.

    So you can add this to the other AV's which are known to have little effect on older systems e.g. Dr Web, F-Prot for Windows. I am particularly surprised that, with AMON enabled, everything seems much faster than with AVP as my primary scanner, as the latter is well-known to be no slouch.

    So those who have had problems with NOD in the past/present, keep faith with this AV as Eset are obviously working very hard behind the scenes to continually improve this program.

    So thanks to Eset and thanks to Paul and Wilders for enticing me back to the NOD camp, with their very generous 'free' license.

    I want to add my sincere thanks to the people at ESET in this forum as well!

    I'm very excited to try version 2 out. From the (very) brief trial I gave it a couple of months ago, I came away very impressed. Love the ease of use and look of the new program. Excited to see how it will perform on my main box.

    Thanks again!
    :D :D
