these days, u3 is more and more common.
will nod32 be ready for u3?
I gather you are talking about THIS?
It would definitely be good if eset had something for u3, currently avast is about the only decent option imo.
That's pretty damn cool.
We'll see. I got my first U3 about a year ago and I can say it's a pretty good gadget except the fact that you cannot configure U3 not to run automatically from within the program whenever you plug it in (except disabling autorun for all removable drives). On certain computers U3 does not even run and throws an error which is annoying for me given that I use it mostly for transfering data.
I am using Avast, but i would definately intrested in Eset version if they produce one!
I use a U3 also, but since it is only used on my computer at work or at home, both of which use NOD32 I don't worry about any AV on it. But obviously the whole point is to be able to plug it into a more public computer so a U3 version of NOD would be nice.
Marcos is right that you can't just plug it in if you only want a file off of it without starting up the whole U3 Launchpad, and any programs that you've set to start automatically.
Another recent alternative to U3, which can be run on any USB flash drive, and does not have the same autostart is PortableApps. Also pretty cool.
What are you talking about, guys?
The only thing you need to do to disable the U3 Launchpad is to hold down the SHIFT key when inserting the U3 drive to the USB port. This basically prevents Launchpad from initializing (in this session only).
He. Oh yeah, so it does. But I'd have to read a manual to know that. Thanks for the tip.
Shift key prevents "auto play" in any media..including CD's. Old trick..not just from a U3 manual.
Never knew about that one.
Thanks, very useful tip!
