    It's fine.

    It's just Nod32 telling you that it's scanning a large file that you're downloading.

    It scans downloaded files before passing them to your system, be it an email or something from the web.

    Cheers :D

    If you're viewing a large file in your Web browser, then you are effectively downloading the file into your temp folder.
