    Does anyone know what time ESET is going to release NOD v3 as a public beta? Any comments on this from official channel? Thanks in advance

    Thanks. I'd be happy to be one of the first beta testers as soon as it's available for public evaluation. Cheers :D

    "When its done". There is still some time left, and I suspect it will take longer than my initial expectations....

    I am pretty happy with 2.7, but I have to say this is the mother of all delays. It's coming up to a full year since ESET teased us with 3.0 at Cebit.

    Either way I'll continue using NOD32 but I do find the continuing delay odd.

    A source tells me that the CeBIT version was buggy as hell, which likely explains why they've taken so long to develop this version. I wonder how they managed to keep the demonstration computer working.

    I also heard that heuristics will be enhanced in v3, to the extent that heuristic detections will also include deleting the registry keys made by the heuristically detected malware (I know Marcos said this works for 2.5 as well, but I think he is wrong here...)

    ... weird.... why would you heuristically want to delete registry keys made by heuristically detected malware?!... If its heuristically detected, you wouldn't execute it, so you wont get registry entires added by the malware o_O

    They’ll just skip v3 and release v5 (hint f-prot). J/K

    But if transition from v1 to 2 is pointer, then…it’ll take some time. As somebody said enjoy v2. :D

    V3 is on show again at Cebit
    I don't think any company can keep doing that sort of thing
    Something to do with credibility
    Anyway 2.7 is just great

    well, I think too they'll skip version 3 and most likely it will be 4 ;) The version presented at CeBIT was indeed very buggy. :(

    May I just ask how do you know that the version presented at Cebit 2006 in Germany was "very buggy" ? Have you tried it some days to claim that ? I guess NO . Although we can suspect it was buggy not to be pushed out , we can't be sure and constantly repeat it .

    So , the above was just for the record ... :D :D

    I know it will be ready "W.I.R", but that'll better be soon. My voucher from the c't last autumn didn't work because my current license (voucher as well :p ) was registered to that mail address as well. I thought I could prolong it but should have better read the small print. Now my license is running out in the middle of april. Didn't bother me as I felt it was about time to pay them and get a regular license.

    Today though I installed my Kaspersky Internet Security voucher from the Computerbild which is valid until the middle of may. Actually I like NOD32 better but Kaspersky also blocks the advertisment banners which frees up my AdMuncher license which I will install on my parents computer when I visit them the next time.

    Hopefully there will be a NOD32 3.0 (banner blocking!) beta by the middle of may!

    Banners can in no way be considered security threats.I am not sure but I believe the new security suit that is being developed will not have such feauture.Have you tried Mozilla Firefox + Addblock addon

    Agreed, banners are no security threat. The ability to block them is a nice extra, though.

    I'm using IE7 as I don't like FF and the FF Google Toolbar is inferior to the IE one.

    EDIT: I really like NOD32. If the next version is good I will get it and a second AdMuncher license. But I'd clearly prefer to have both in one package. Banner blocking ability is a standard (and good selling point) for "suites" nowaday. Norton Internet security has it as well.
