- NOD32 updates?

I am thinking about buying NOD32, which I heard is a good virus scanner
that requires very little resources. The latter criterion is very
important to me.
I have a laptop and a desktop computer that are both used only by
myself, so I will never use both simultaneously.
Is it OK with the licence agreement that I can use one NOD32 license
for my laptop and my desktop computer or will I have to buy two
Can I update both NOD32 versions using the live update function or will
the download server tell me that I have already downloaded the update
If not, how does Eset protect itself against abuse of update keys, if
for example the same key would be used by hundreds of computers? I mean
they must have a means against this type of abuse.
Re: NOD32 updates?
NOD32 would be an excellent choice.
No. This is not ok. You should speak with firstname.lastname@example.org first though.
or will I have to buy two
You need to buy two licenses.
It wont do this. But ESET would probably deactivate your key for abuse.
Yes. Different AV companies have different methods. Ones I have come
across are ...
F-Secure Update server detects if keys are already in use.
Kaspersky: Use a blacklist which is part of the antivirus database
updates to detect and disable keys which are being abused. ie. Available
on crack websites and so on.
Symantec: Use product activation.
F-Prot & Norman use serial numbers to log into update servers... so I
guess this is how this is monitored.
I'm sure there are plenty of other examples.... I don't know any more of
them right now though :)
Re: NOD32 updates?
Thanks for telling me about your experience with the live update
function of NOD32. It seems like they are not that strict at Eset and
allow up to two personal computers to be updated with one personal
But I think just to make sure I'll ask Eset too as suggested by Ian.
