    im using ShadowDefender ( and i set "Shadow Mode" on my C: partition which is my system partition.
    SD has special Exclusion tab where i can set folders and files which will not enter in "Shadow Mode".

    I want to configure this for my ESET Nod32 Antivirus, now in Exclusion list i have folders:
    C:\Program Files\ESET\*
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Eset\*

    what else i should add to this list?
    Now my Nod32 update correct but after a Restart my PC with Shadow Mode - ON, i can see in Nod32 status Red ICON on last update.
    I think its depends on registry but now i cant add registry key to my SD, so please tell me what else folders or files can i add to my exclusion list on my ShadowDefender.

    The two folders you've chosen should be enough for ShadowDefender.

    but the succesful update date and time is back on the last update when my SD is off.

    From what I remember when I was running NOD32 in conjunction with SD, some of the information relating to NOD32 updates is held in the registry, which you can't make SD exclusions for.

    As NOD32 updates are fairly unobtrusive anyway, I just found it easier to let NOD32 update itself each time after exiting Shadow Mode.

    If the entire Windows directory is excluded from protection when in Shadow Mode, there isn't much point to using SD in the first place.

    For Windows XP:
    C:\Program Files\ESET
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ESET
    C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\ESET

    For Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    C:\Program Files\ESET

    As said, some update files will be held in the registry and there's no way to add these keys to the exclusion.
