    I am currently still using NOD32 2.00.9 and am interested in upgrading to the beta version. I have read what is new in the beta version but was curious how much more resources NOD32b use and if it will slow down any downloading or surfing the net.

    only thing i have noticed is the scanning of incoming files while downloading from p2p or msn is a little bit slower, but that is proberly only due to the advanced heur and deep scanning opt turned on.

    NOD32 scanning MSN and P2P downloads? Are you sure? Not to be rude, but I really doubt that NOD32 has anything to do with the slowdowns you experience there. First of all, I don't think it is possible to set NOD32 up to scan MSN file transfers. At least it doesn't do so with the standard settings. I also doubt that NOD32 scans P2P downloads, I haven't seen it do such a thing on my computer at least.

    As far as I know, NOD32's IMON scans HTTP protocol traffic on ports 80, 8080, 3128 and POP3 protocol traffic on port 110 (according to standard settings).

    There is also an option to scan all other http traffic detected on any other port. FTP is not scanned at the currnet time.

    The role of the HTTP scanner built in IMON is to check the HTTP traffic between the browser and an HTTP server. The HTTP scanner works in two modes which can be set up individually for the particular applications utilizing HTTP.

    No harm at all, however if it is not affecting you in any way why not let it do its job, defence at arms length is better than up close and personal ;)

    Cheers :D
