There 1 laptop its stuck with this eset nod32 it a nightmare to get off.
I've tried CCleaner, Revo uninstaller it finds all sorts I even use the hunter to look at the icon near the clock but doesn't seem to remove it complete. Ive been successfully using Nod32 for probably 10 years currently protecting 1 PC (Win XP) and two laptoips (Win7 32 bit and 64 bit).
I've heard it said over the last couple of years that Windows Security Essentials was all that anyone needed today, and there was no need to spend /- per... Windows 7 Forums is an independent web site and has not been authorized, sponsored, or otherwise approved by Microsoft Corporation.
I'm asking on this forum as a last resort before I just wipe the whole drive to get this bloody program off of my machine. "Windows 7" and related materials are trademarks of Microsoft Corp.
I have rebooted a few times and tried to disable antivirus (up to date NOD32).
Shall i set NOD32 to update on the wait until next scheduled time (every 60 mins) or soon as possible?
It's pretty common that having it update the second you log on (or something comparable) causes unnecessary slowdowns and delays, especially if you also have it set to scan startup files after each update.
Under most circumstances, I'd just let it stick to its hourly schedule.
when i buyed this notebook dealer instaled this on my notebook. Please note that the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum is extremely busy, and it may take a while to receive a reply.
If you're using it in some highly secure environment where you're constantly under intentional targeted attack, you might want one of the other options, and you might want to set the updates for something more frequent like every 30 minutes, too. avast was ok but the features lacked and didn't have a good interface, avira webshield slowed my internet down.
But if you're in one of those environments, you're probably not asking here. So i decided to gat a paid version this time and all looking good.
One the other hand, this topic will also help people who do not want NOD32 antivirus to show alerts about new Windows updates.
Actually NOD32 antivirus comes with an interesting feature which alerts you about new Windows updates.
You'll probably find it will update after logging on, my machines are shut down for the night and booting up in the morning NOD32 does it set up and quite often it will bring the box up to say it has updated the def files. Best one iv'e used so far, works great on windows 7.
