ESET NOD32 Antivirus 2.70 build 39

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/06/2007 | , | 15 Comments »

Ever since this blog's launch, we've been recommending users to use Mcafee VirusScan Enterprise as their primary security software. But time has now come to change that. There is a new king of he hill; NOD32 from ESET.

First of all, let us justify our decision to recommend NOD32 over Mcafee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE):

1. Since the introduction of Mcafee 5000.194 scan engine, ActiveShield service may sometimes consume up to 45MB of physical memory, making it a resource hog. NOD32 on the other hand is very light on system resources and features faster scan times. NOD32 Resident scanner wont consume more than 20MB of RAM most of the time.

2. NOD32 gets access to new virus signature files faster than Mcafee. Its average threat response time has been hovering over the 2 hour mark for a long time (Source: CNET).

3. NOD32 features an out-of-this-world heuristics detection engine. This allows the scanner to stop viruses even before signature files are released.

Now let's have a detailed look on NOD32.

NOD32 Antivirus System provides well balanced, state-of-the-art protection against threats endangering your PC and enterprise systems running various platforms from Microsoft Windows 95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2000 / 2003 / XP / Vista, through a number of UNIX/Linux, Novell, MS DOS operating systems to Microsoft Exchange Server, Lotus Domino and other mail servers.

    I have a small problem with my PC.

    The thing is, my screen keeps flashing on and off very frequently. I tried changing the monitor, but the problem still persists. I figured out that it could be a problem with my VGA.

    I am using an external GeForce FX 5500 now, and there is an onboard VGA which is disabled.

    Do you know how I could possibly enable the onboard VGA?

    Some help please?

    I've got Flight Simulator X and I need to activate it. I've exceeded the number of times for my serial number, so can anyone provide a crack or something?

    Dear Technoguy/Thirukumaran,
    Your q will b answered by sum1 from our team shortly. Network problems have been the reason for lack of updates. We will be back up in a few hours.

    And await Medal of honour: Airborne HATRED release. (it should have been posted 2 days ago anyway).

    One more thing we forgot to mention about NOD32:

    Once NOD32 is installed and cracked (follow instructions exactly as mentioned in Rule's post or the crack wont work) , do not let NOD32 detect the nod32fix 2.2.exe or modded registry entry files. If the file is detected, NOD32 will revert to 30 day trial ! Smart eh?

    To effectively hide the patch, Disable AMON (AMON is the NOD32 memory resident scanner which scans in background) immediately following the first reboot after installation + cracking.

    Navigate to installation folder (Default : C:\Program files\ESET)and delete the file

    Then navigate to the downloaded source (Program setup + Fix).
    Zip the contents of the folder. Then RAR the zip file.

    Delete the folder and the .zip file (not the RAR file you just created).

    Now re-enable AMON.

    You can move the RAR file to your backup or store or whatever and keep it for later use.

    Normally on board VGA will automatically be enabled once you remove the APG/PCI-E card from the motherboard.

    Hey guys,

    followed both sets of instructions and it's still reverted back to a 30 day trial - same happened to some other people who've used it. short of reinstalling it when the trial runs out is there some way of fixing this?

  14. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 9/14/2007 09:20:00 PM  


    Yeah there is a way to fix it. But it will require you to unintsall both the patch and NOD32.

    1. Uninstall NOD32 FiX from add remove programs.
    2. Uninstall NOD32.
    Reinstall NOD32. Disable threatsense reporting.
    3. Reboot.Disconnect from internet.
    4. Open NOD32 control center.
    5. Go to Update and click on setup.
    6. Click on Servers. Click add.
    7. Enter
    as new server. Press ok to that window. The ok the servers window.
    8. Now you will have the "Setup of Automatic Window still open". On the drop down menu next to servers button, select

    Thats it. You can now reconnect to internet.
    No need to install patch if you do this before NOD32 checks for updates for the first time (hence disconnect from internet till you do this).

    I think everytime i install NOD32(trial version), it disconnects me from the internet T_T.
