Installed version 9 yesterday and couldn't get on web. Had no desire to spend an hour or so reconfiguring, I uninstalled it, reinstalled version 8 and all is well.  Running WinXP & have been using nod32 AV since version 2.7.

Running WinXP Sp3 with Firefox 43 and Nod32 vsn 8. Running fine, no problems.  Win firewall is on. After installing vsn 9, couldn't get on internet.  Tried disabling Nod 32 and then could access web fine.  Been using Nod32 since vsn 2.7 and every upgrade up to vsn 9 was seamless. Just didn't have patience to start configuring vsn 9 with ports & Hip, etc. I figure the upgrade should be seamless and if not I'll do without.  Uninstalled vsn 9 and reinstalled vsn 8 from File Hippo and again running fine.  Besides, I don't care for the new UI.

Hi,

  1. Strongly suggest you download installer from official websites.
  2. The upgrade to version 9 should be fine with no issues at all (from my experience installing and more).
  3. No extra configuration is need it for version 9, the default should be ok.

Do you have some special rules in Windows Firewall?

 

I assume, network is set to Home classification, right?

Vsn 9 was installed from Eset site with live installer. Only went to File Hippo to get the previous vsn 8 for reinstall. No special rules in Win Firewall. Running Asus router with home network. No special classification. Thanks for your input, but I suspect that vsn 9 probably noy compatible with winxp.

Well, I have to disagree on that.

 

Real machine working perfectly.

Celeron with 1 GB RAM, Windows XP SP3 fully patched with version 9,

connected to Internet through Tp-link router => no issues at all and was a V9 installed above a v8. ;)

 

In this kind of cases I believe is something in the PC, configuration or little thing causing this.

The hard thing is to find the culprit.

 

If want to make test to move to Version 9, let me know. I will happy to help.

Happy surfing! ^_^

Same here, no problems at all.

 

Well, I got V8 installed now, but had no issues like the ones described in this thread when I had V9 installed. Both versions work fine.

 

P.S Do you use the POS Ready trick on it ? :)

Well, I finally got vsn 9 up & running. After reading above advice I thought I'd try again. This time couldn't get vsn 9 to install,  Either live update or offline update.  Kept hanging at about 88% looking for location of NUP115.msi file.  So decided to uninstall vsn  8 & do clean install of vsn 9. But couldn't uninstall vsn 8 - so had to do a manual uninstall, safe mode, etc. Then installed vsn 9 which went fine.  However once installed - still couldn't access web.  Went into protocol filtering and had to manually add the client files. They were listed in the add dialog window - but had to manually add them.  Then all worked well. I think vsn 9 has some sort of firewall incorporated as I hadn't had this in earlier updates. After getting it up & running on desktop, decided to install on laptop.  Here installation went smoothly and worked right off the bat.  Didn't have to get into protocol filter. Picked up clients automatically. So as was earlier suggested might have some basic conflict with my desktop computer. Could be so as it's configured as a dual boot system still running DOS6.2 & WinXP with System Commander at boot up. Still don't care for the UI of vsn 9. Thought vsn 8 had a cleaner look.  Anyway all is well.  Thanks to all for help.
