    I'm ready to go to 3.0 but I would like to retain the settings I made on 2.7.
    Do I choose "Typical" or "Custom" install?
    Or is there more to it than just that?
    I do have 4 months to go on present license and have
    already downloaded and saved 3.0...just waiting for this help.

    Whatever you choose , during the install the setup will automatically detect you have NOD32 v.2 and will automatically take most of your previous settings . Go ahead and install it without worries . Reboot after that and make sure EAV will update itself.

    HiTechboy..understand there is no need to uninstall v2.7 prior installing v3.
    I have V2.7 in italian and local ESET reseller told me that v2 must be removed
    first. Please confirm thank you.

    Hello,

    If you upgrade from 2.x to 3.0, some of the settings will be preserved during the upgrade. Since not every feature has a one-to-one correspondence and default modes of operation have changed for some features, this means you could end up with a custom (non-standard) installation of the software.

    Uninstalling 2.x prior to 3.0 allows you to perform a clean installation of the software without importing old settings, which gives you an opportunity for a "fresh start" with reviewing the new defaults and configuring the software for your computing environment.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
