    Heres my issue. I have had NOD32 Home installed for quite a bit and just wanted to update it to the latest and greatest version. I had Version 3.0.195.0. I attempted to update it with a link that this forum supplied and it pointed to the latest trial software. So I figured ok I have to install this and then my code will take affect. What happened was it did indeed install the latest but took my system down to a 30 day trial again. I attempted to install the key I had and this was rejected. So I figured I would reboot and see what happens. Well when it came back up the system was now on version 3.0.642.0 with my correct time remaining. Now I know this is not the latest so my questions are simple.
    1) Is it even worth my time updating to the latest or should I just keep the one I have now?
    2) Is there a link to download the update software without having to do a a trial install?
    3) Lastly, Is there a independent test result site/link for the new Security suite so I can judge if going this way would be a benefit. I currently use NOD32 and FortKnox Firewall but might be interested in a all-in-one solution.

    Please let me know and thanks in advance.

    I am a bit curious where you got build 3.0.195 from and how you managed to get a trial version 3.0.642 (posting today , this version is no longer available on ESET's web site , let's not forget it is now June , sorry -> July 2008 ) . Anyway ...

    You can see the changes from build 642 to 667 on ESET's site . If you have no problems and no of the changes directly affects you , I think 3.0.642 is OK for you.

    Sure . www.eset.com -> Download -> Home or Business user sections . I guess Home user is the one for you.


    There are many reviews of NOD32 and less on Eset Smart Security . If nobody posts links , you can contact marketing@eset.com :thumb:

    Greetings!

    Well thanks for the info, however the link I was looking for was a direct link to upgrade my current system to the latest and greatest. The link and info you provided was for the trial and I was just hoping for a direct "UPGRADE".

    if your ok with your current version of the software and there is no problems. keep it eset releases component upgrades from time to time that brings you to the latest greatest, but they wait tell there is something major before they send one out. insted of sending one out every release for minor fix's. :cool:

    also if you want the latest go to Eset.com and click Purchased programs and downloads. And then you choose the one you want your prompted for your user name and password and wala you download the latest and greatest.

    If you have purchased a license, you can download the latest full version of EAV and install it over an older version. However, if you are not having an issue with your current version, you needn't upgrade the program as it only contains fixes for certain quirks.
