After consultation with Eset had to downgrade my NOD 32 to an earlier version and then uninstall this before I could upgrade to 3.0. The main problem I was getting was that I could not uninstall my existing version completly either through control panel or manually.
So if you are have problems installing ver.3.0 download and install ver.2.7 first and then uninstall that.

Just downloaded and tried to install, being told midway through install that "windows had a fatal error". So had to perform a system restore. Suggest you be careful with this update for now.

this software isnt that great and their customer service is AWFUL
i bought this for my company and it takes days or weeks to get ahold of anyone at eset, they just suck
i will be buying kaspersky in the future

I've used this software for almost 3 years now. I've never had to contact customer support as it has always worked flawlessly. And as far as being an efficient app, using very little resources, not slowing down your system and not being overly intrusive, the program is second to none! I'm pleased to see that 3.0 (antivirus) still isn't bloated.


I looked at these publicly-available release notes and they said the release number is 3.0.560, not 3.0.056.

From reading the messages on ESET's web site, it looks like ESET NOD32 Antivirus v3.0 is a free upgrade to current NOD32 v2.70 users, but they have not started performing web updates yet so you need to manually download and install it over the current version of the software.

Just download the v3.x version and you v2.7 license details should work ok with it.

Go to the Eset web site and click on the "download" link then click on the button that says "Already purchased? Need a registered version? click here" and download the v3.x software. It should install ok over the top of your v2.7 licensed version.

I'm wondering what the firewall is like in the new NOD32 Security Suite? I'm currently running NOD32 AV plus ZoneAlarm Pro, but ZA is a bit of a resource hog and switching to Eset's firewall as part of their Security Suite might be a better option.

Hoy can I update to that version with the program auto update feature???

I was looking for it but didn't find anything....

So is this going out over the auto updater now?
Mine is still 2.70.32 and says it's up to date when I press the update button...

Yeah, I did it manually... update never works in NOD32.. it's always said it was up to date. I've just seen there was a 2.70.39.. it never even updated itself to that.
