    I had an old version of NOD32 antivirus and was getting ready to buy a new one.

    Tried the download but never got any info on how to download it. That was over a week ago.

    Tried to find a way of e mailing Eset but couldn't find it.

    Called and left a message and no one called me back.

    WTH?

    Makes it awful hard to buy your products and all I wanted to know was, HOW much for a license for ANTIVIRUS only! I don't need any other stuff. Also, can I install the ANTIVIRUS ONLY or do I have to do the firewall too?
    I'm thinking it'll be cheaper than the whole Smart Security but I can't find it other than in an upgrade and dammit if I know where my old version is and I never register stuff anyway so I'd like to buy a new license.

    If I didn't think McAfee and Norton were too obtrusive, I never would have made it this far :(

    Thanks

    George

    if your nod32 licence are not ended, you can download NOW nod32 v4 with your Eset ID and PW.

    By the way, renewal price are lower. You can renew up to 30 days after the end of your previous licence.

    Never see a promo..... but you can save up to 25% if you buy or renew a 2 years licence for one or more computer.

    Thanks, it's been a long time I had NOD32 so that's why I need a new license.

    Actually, before I make a purchase, I have one more question.

    If I buy licenses for say 3 or 5 pc's. Do they all have to be MY computers or can a friend of mine get one, another friend the second one and so on or do they all have to be my puters? If not, I might see if my friends want in.

    Thanks again

    George

    Ok, I have another question...surprise.

    I looked at the pricing for more than once license and wondered, why does the price difference jump ten bucks from 1, to 2 to 3 licenses but then 20 to the next one (ie, 4 and 5) and the same thing for 2 years?

    There it goes from like 15 bucks till 30 bucks?

    I was asking my friends to buy in with me and I'm up to 5 licenses but now, I'm wondering what I should do? I don't want to sound stingy 'cause I'm not but I'm gonna have a hard time paying the rent so every dollar counts for me right now and this puzzles me.

    By the way, when you buy more licenses, what happens? You get say 5 different passwords or what?

    Thanks

    George

    do you want nod32 for free or what ?? you have to calculate how much cost each year of licence

    60$ for 1 lic x 2 years means 60$ for 2 yrs (1 x 2) so 30$/yr

    75$ for 2 lic x 2 years means 75$ for 4 yr lic (2 x 2) so 18.75$/yr

    90$ for 3 lic x 2 years means 90$ for 6 yrs (3 x 2) so 15$/yr

    120$ for 4 lic x 2 years means 120$ for 8 years (4 x 2) so 15$/yr

    150$ for 5 lic x 2 years means 150$ for 10 years (5 x2) so 15$/yr

    15$/yr is half price of 1 licence for 2 years

    if you calculate for 1 year licence

    for 1 pc it is 40$/yr
    for 2 pc it is 25$/yr (50$)
    for 3 pc it is 20$/yr (60$)
    for 4 pc it is 20$/yr (80$)
    for 5 pc it is 20$/yr (100$)

    with these good prices for NOD32 there i NO reason to use a free AV, to risk with a free AV, isnt it ??

    Nope, just checking and again, damn near broke. I used to buy lots of stuff but can't do it any longer. Not enough money coming in.
    I'm fine with the prices, like I said, I was just trying to take advantage of the lower rates when buying more and although I haven't read the rest of your reply, it was looking to me like it was more PER license for more licenses. Again, haven't gotten to that part yet.

    Well hell Mel, looking at it that way. I know my math sucks but hell, didn't look right. Nah, prices are good and I never did like when they reviewed programs and bitched about a proggy being expensive at 50-60 bucks. I'm used to paying much more and normally, I would only buy one year at a time and not even worry about this, but like I said, no money right now so I'll have to be stingy till things pick up. Got more software to buy too but it'll have to wait.

    Thanks

    If it makes you feel any better, I will be buying at least 5 licenses for two years as opposed to just one for myself so however you may feel about this little exercise, you did Eset some good (and me).

    Later

    no offense but it seems you're trying to make ends meet. so why not try to cut down on your expenses? :doubt:

    not enough money o_O are you serious ??

    30$ by year / 365 days = 0.08 $..... 8 cents a day, ok must add taxes over, even if it cost you 10 cents a day, just drink less coffee, or one beer less by month... ;)

    and renewal prices cost more less !!

    Piranha, we must be misunderstand each other. I said prices are fine and always were, this way I can go ahead and get two years for the same as one since we'll be buying more licenses.

    Not sure if your reading comprehension is as poor as my math :D

    Just in case, I AM joking

    It's ok, we understand each other now :)

    English isn't my first one either, just my third :) (I was bragging a little bit there. It's not like I can brag about my math...)
