    The NOD32 download page shows version 2.12.3 as the current version.

    According to the Information page on my NOD32 Control Center, I have version 2.12.2.

    When I press the Update Now button, the virus signature database is updated (to 1.904) but NOD32 itself is not updated.

    Is there any significant difference between 2.12.3 and 2.12.2 ?

    Is it worth me downloading 2.12.3 and manually upgrading from 2.12.2 ?

    Maybe. I have a somewhat qualitative, though clear, impression that IMON is functioning better with snappier response and a general improvement in internet connectivity. I'd say go for it, on the other hand I do not run highly tweaked settings - after installation, complete configuration takes me about 20 seconds.

    I believe it is, the newer version has fixed many problems with websites not functioning properly with IMON's HTTP scanner.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    Upgrading to the latest version fixed several problems that had me just about uninstalling nod but 2.12.3 fixed the problems I was having. IMO it is well worth the trouble to manually update to the new version


    bigc= now happy nod user.

    Thanks guys. I'll give it a go.

    :)

    I'm just curious as to why NOD32 didn't offer to update its components automatically?

    My Automatic Update settings are:
    Virus databases: automatic
    Program components: offer

    Will I also have to manually update when 2.13 is released in the near future?

    Eset has to release as a component upgrade for updater to pick it up and they have chosen not to at the current time for whatever reason, you have to d/l the whole app again.

    OK, thanks.

    Do I have to uninstall 2.12.2 first or can I install 2.12.3 over the top of it?

    I've now upgraded to 2.12.3 and changed my IMON HTTP settings back from Higher Compatibility to Higher Efficiency.

    So far, so good.

    :D

    I too have upgraded from 2.12.2 to 2.12.3 and the only program which doesn't seem to like Higher Efficiency is Ewido but that could be because I am using the trial version as yet. Everything else is fine but I noticed that the scan time for 126677 files scanned is 00:19:38 seconds. Prior to installing SP2 my scans were around 00:13:50 seconds. I realise that SP2 would have made a difference but there doesn't seem to be much more on my hard drive.

    Does that scan time sound comparable with what others are experiencing?

    That is correct, there is an issue with Nod32 and Ewido in Higher Efficiency, It has been discussed here


    That sounds about right, further discussion can be found here

    Hope this helps…

    Cheers :D

    OK. Thanks for that. I was just curious. Norton used to take around 12 minutes to scan everything and NOD32 does take longer but then I have everything set to the maximum with NOD - just because I can!

    As long as it is in the ball park I am happy.

    Good morning

    Could someone give me the quick explanation (20 words or less type of thing) of what these HTTP settings do? o_O My install is stock-standard; it works, so never fiddled.

    Good morning

    ;) Only by about a 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive

    (laughing)I used to drive my parents crazy as a kid asking "why?"

    Not the info I was looking for, but a wealth of the other settings available, and have made some of those adjustments. The helpfile is a bit thin as well on the subject. However, I gather that Nod32 gives me better protection by making the setting into Higher Eficiency, so adjustment made. We can just leave it at that for now.

    Enjoy your evening

    Welcome to Wilders Romane, I see you are just down the road ;) :D


    That’s ok, ask away, we like questions here at Wilders, especially ones that make your head hurt ;) :D


    The key to IMON’s HTTP Scanner is this statement from Eset Moderator - Marcos, NOTE: With “Higher Compatibility” mode it is possible that Trojans may slip through IMON.


    It does indeed :D

    Cheers :D

    I'm still having issues with 2.12.3. All I can say is that things did not get worse with it.

    If I install 2.12.3 over 2.12.2 does it save all my settings? Or do I have to go and manually change them all again.

    During the installation it will ask if you would like to keep your settings or restore the defaults(clean install), select keep and your settings remain unchanged with the exception of the high efficiency/high compatibility already discussed earlier in this thread.
