    Hi,

    Another question, I just recommanded Nod32 on a Dutch forum, because I like it and allthough I had some doubts about renewing Nod (allready solved by the help of ctrlaltdelete) I can't really explain why. Stupid I know. :oops: Somebody?

    And should you really use Blackspear's settings? What happens if you don't? (I use the settings btw)

    Answers can be found HERE and HERE and HERE

    The links above give pretty definitive answers as to why you would recommend NOD32, besides which it's just damn good ;) :D

    Cheers :D

    There would be no harm for sure in using those settings but as it is with almost all software....every user needs to understand what are the plusses and minuses for using anyones settings much less their own. Also as a side note....the majority of "Blackspear's settings" that you refer to is a tutorial of how to install Nod with a number of stronger protection tweaks mixed in. It behooves every user of Nod that utilizes these settings to take note of the extra settings contained in the tutorial. BS went to great lengths to spell out the re-action when tightening the default settings.
    The best way I can answer is to say I had no qualms in informing a family member that Eset's default settings are very adequate for protection. However....as they got used to the program....I then introduced them to my friend's settings from down-under ;)

    YMMV,

    When someone asks my recommendation for an antivirus, there are three things that come to mind immediately for recommending NOD32.

    1) eliminates the need for point solutions, covers all areas of malware, including rootkit detection.
    2) proactive heuristics capability
    3) system performance

    I use default settings and respond to alerts. I do not like to know what has happened on my computer, after the fact.

    What Bubba said ;) :D

    I look at it this way, when I press the brakes on my car I don't want to be asked do I really want to press the breaks? I don't need to know that pressing the breaks will increase pressure in a line, that in turns adds pressure to a set of pads that then applies pressure around disks that begin to slow the car. I just want the breaks to work and sit silently in the background doing so awaiting my foot to press the peddle.

    The Tutorial is designed for maximum settings with maximum automation, basically to have NOD32 sit in the background silently doing its job. It is also designed to give you a good understanding of NOD32's inner workings, this in turn takes the fear/mystery out of clicking on something within your security program and allows you to explore and adjust NOD32 to your particular requirements ;) :D

    The default settings are fine, however, they will prompt the user for interaction, and the greater majority of users will feel stress when prompted for an action that they are uncertain as to exactly what the consequences of their choice will be.

    Cheers :D

    I personally didn't feel you did and would hope no one else would either since it is a very good question.
    It means Your Mileage May Vary....since I just knew ole great one was going to use a car analogy :eek: :D ;)

    TGIF,
    Bubba :cool:
