    I see the thread below detailing how to set nod32 up on Vista but where do you get a version that will run on vista ? My other computer died so have set up Vista on this computer and now want to use NOD32 instead of Miscosoft junk., well partiucularly as I brought a licence for 2 years :)

    No where . The current version of NOD32 - 2.51 is incompatible with Windows Vista according to both ESET and Microsoft .

    ESET are creating new version , 2.7 which is going to be pushed soon . You'll have to wait . Read other threads in the forum for beta products and you'll have more information :thumb:

    It would be interesting to know if Eset got from MS the permission and knowledge to access the kernel directly or only via API.

    I have read that Microsoft will give permission to all security vendors to access the kernel in Vista . As usual there are lots of procedures that should be done but there is no reason MS to prevent exactly ESET from that ;)

    Well hopefully sooner then later :)

    And I have glasses on today so maybe my message will make more sense.

    I assume that it will be a case of just downloading, entering your product key and away you go ?

    Many thanks Eset (not) :thumbd: for helping us IT guys to be able to test Noddy on Vista - we usually like to give something around six months testing prior to releasing it to end users. Seems like Eset have same policies as Microsoft - chuck out a new programme and let the users find whether it works or not! o_O Can anyone suggest what AV they have had success with on Vista? Looks like we will need to use alternative AV on the Vista platform since Eset can't get their act together. Shame really, since we have found Eset to be a reasonably good AV. Still needs to be improved, but at least they mkae PC's that can run it - unlike Norton :thumbd: :thumbd: :thumbd: , they seem to create software that requires the speed of CPU's not yet produced! :D

    If you haven't already seen it, try post#3 in this linked thread. Actually the whole thread sheds some light.

    Cheers :)
