  • Many of our users have had issues running the award-winning NOD32 on Windows Vista, but we've compiled a couple of steps that should end with NOD32 running ~95% of the time:

    • Start the services control panel (in Administrative Tools, or services.msc)
    • Disable "SSDP Discovery" in the services control panel.
    • Install NOD32 by running as administrator, and when it asks whether or not to enable IMON, make sure to *disable* IMON in the setup.
    • When it asks about "Appending AV Notification to email" make sure that is disabled as well.
    • Reboot Vista.
    • NOD32 should run OK, but IMON will be off, feel free to turn it on now, and it should work.

  • Currently you can install NOD32 XP/2000 version (ndntenst.exe) on Vista by:

    1. Downloading the installer from our website
    2. Right-click on the installer and select "Run as Administrator"
    3. Allow NOD32 to run from the User Account Control dialog
    4. After rebooting, you will need to allow nod32kui.exe (the GUI for the Control Center) to run.

    Note that this applies to the 32-bit version of Vista; at least one customer tells us that it doesn't work on 64-bit. I've heard that the next release of NOD32 should resolve the UAP issues.
