    hi all

    whats the difference between :

    1) NOD32 Antivirus version 3.0.672.0

    and between

    2) NOD32 smart security same version..

    I got the number 1 option, but i think that #2 is better.

    When i ask differences, i mean by :

    finding threats
    blocking ports (lets say utorrent)
    for gaming, if it "lags"

    and the rest stuff :>

    cheers,

    Neil

    1 = only Anti virus + anti spyware

    2 = Anti virus + anti spyware, firewall & anti spam

    You could try ESS v4 beta in learning mode to get your BT stuff set up without too much hassle.

    uTorrent can be blocked via Win XP's native firewall, I wouldn't necessarily prescribe running a Beta-Build of NOD32 just to accomplish this.
    Others //should// chime-in on P2P blocking... :cool:
    Your ISP my throttle your connection, too, using a P2P Client such as uTorrorent or BitTorrent.

    I assume he wants to use BT, not block it... Oh well. Blocking is not a problem, making it work w/ firewalls is significantly more difficult.

    Can't you forward or open ports in ESS? In µTorrent make sure you select a single port number and not the 'randomise port' option.
