After trying the initial release and each update of Version 3, I have decided to abandon EAV. I installed the most recent version, 3.0.642, today, and the performance of my system was so negatively affected that I uninstalled it immediately after performing some routine tasks. The main reason I choose to use Nod32 was because of the small footprint and great performance; that was with version 2.x. Since the introduction of version 3.x, I have not been satisfied with the product and will forfeit the balance of my paid subscription which is good until June 2009. I realize I could continue to use Version 2.x, but, at sometime in the future, support for it will be discontinued and I would rather find a replacement now then wait until that time. I am not writing this to solicit any response from the group, but merely to express my view about the latest version.
