    Re: NOD32

    I have been using NOD32 for a couple of years now. Moved away from Symantec when it seemed to slow my systems to a crawl with its background tasks. NOD32's processes also work in the background but with little effort. I have three licenses for my home systems and have recommended to several friends who have also switched from Symantec after having performance issues.

    Re: NOD32

    I too use NOD32, I like it so much that when I started to update PC-cillin to 2007 and it required that I, not disable but removed, NOD32 I canceled the install. That should tell you something about how much I like NOD32.

    Re: NOD32

    Since the NOD32 license applies to a computer, if one has a multiboot system, NOD32 can be instaled in each OS.

    If I have OS on F and G, and I install NOD32 in the OS on G on, say, 12 Jan 2007, then I install NOD32 in the OS on F on, say, 23 Aug 2007, when does the clock start ticking for the 1-year subscription for the NOD 32 on F?

    If the NOD32 subscription on F is restricted by the earlier date on G, then multiboot installation has a timing issue. Typically, the OS on a multiboot system are installed on quite different daze, so synchronizing multiboot install of NOD32 would be difficult.

    The clock starts ticking on the day you acquire the license... regardless of when you install NOD32 on your system.

    Re: NOD32

    i believe that true only if one purchases directly from ESET or its Partners.

    Might not be true if purchased from, say, Newegg.

    Re: NOD32

    I would imagine that buying and downloading from ESET (or its partners) assumes that you would be installing the product on the day of purchase and thus the clock starts ticking on that day.

    If you were to purchase from Newegg and stockpile the product ( like you mentioned on the ESET forum site) for a later install, then I would imagine that the install process would require activation and you would be issued a userid and password, similar to the ESET download approach. Thus, buying from Newegg and installing it on one of your multi-boot environments would start the clock ticking on the initial install.

    BTW, the product cost from ESET is $39.99. From Newegg it appears that the price is $49.99. In that case, why would you want to pay an extra $10.00 for a CD?

    I also noticed from your postings on the ESET support forum that you have already stockpiled multiple year's worth of Symantec AV software. Why would you want to add more AV products when you have some that you have not even installed... and do not intend to do so until a future date? Just curious.

    Bad assumption.

    Folkes should be able to buy products when there are advantagous prices and/or to stockpile for future use, perhas on a soon to be purchased additional system.

    For example, I expect delivery today of two software items, one of which is intended to be used on a future Vista system, the other just adding to my AV stockpile.

    Ding dong!
    Ah, the doorbell just rang.
    The critters have arrived!

    I would not, unless I needed a mini-frisbee.

    I explained that elsewhere, guess you missed that thread.

    I noticed that Symantec did not include support for windows 2000 in NAV 2007, so I decided tat I had better stock up on Windows 2000 compatible AV to keep the multiboot system going for a few years.
