    I created an anti theft account for this laptop a week ago, and now that i'm reinstalling NOD 32 V 6 RC it will not allow me to enable the anti-theft account. When I try to sign in it says, " duplicate computer name!".

    Disregard this thread. Not that anyone was going to answer it anyways. I had to log into the account I created, and delete the device. It seems odd that one would have to delete the device to reactivate the anti-theft service again.

    Hello,

    It might prevent someone from disabling the anti-theft component by just reinstalling over the the top of an existing account.
