    Blackspear recommends, in Extra settings for Nod32, to enable the 2 Quarantine check box in the "Actions" tab, of the "Scanner setup", in DMON, IMON and on-demand scanner.

    Why? If I receive an email with a virus, the quarantine will have two files with a different size...
    Why not just check check the 1º box?

    If the file isn't clean and then delete, I have 2 files as you can see in the image:

    Thanks

    As far as I knew, if Nod32 can clean the virus it will also Quarantine it, if it can NOT clean the virus it will DELETE it and at the same time Quarantine it. So either option Quarantines the virus, and I would have thought that there would only be one encrypted copy...

    As to why there is 2, I will have to ask the question...

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention...

    Cheers :D

    Mr. Spear and Mr. Crow,

    Checking both the Quarantine boxes is fine. However, if you do this, you must regularly clear out the Quarantined items in the Infected folder inside the Eset folder, otherwise if you forget, and you get quite a bit of email rubbish coming in every day, you may suddennly find your hard drive is full to bursting point.... :D

    Bandicoot.

    Thank you Mr Coot, I'm quite happy with "bursting", I can handle a little cleaning every now and then ;) :D

    HOWEVER, and there's always a however ;) why does Quarantine do so TWICE, logically I would have thought ONCE would have been enough, as in, if it can "Clean", it will Quarantine

    If it can't "Clean" then if set to "Delete", it would then Quarantine, NOT Quarantine TWICE, once with "Clean" and again with "Delete".

    The ball is in your court again Mr Coot ;) and the umpire has just said "Play Ball!" ;) :D

    Cheers :D

    Houston? We have a problem!

    Well..... only a small problem really. Simple fact is that nobody has brought this point up before so I'm adding this to the list of bugs to fix with NOD32 right now. Looks like Mr. Crow and Mr. Spear have done well to bring this to light.

    Thanks chaps! :D :p :D

    Bandicoot.

    Good news everybody..... the double-quaranting issue has been fixed! Better late than never, hey. A relatively minor problem so it wasn't top of the 'to do' list. Just thought you'd all like to know.

    Bandicoot. :D

    Why thank you Mr Coot, you're worth your weight in, ahhhh... Tin :eek: ;) :D :D :ninja:

    Now the average Bandicoot weighs 640 Grams, and Tin is valued at around $7500/metric tonne, so you are worth about US$4.80, or a cup of coffee, or a Big Mac with small fries and a coke... :rolleyes: :D

    :D :D :D

    Well I ain't your average Bandicoot, Mr. Spear. I got involved with a dodgy pack of Dingos who fed me up on live crocs. So, by your calculations, I'm worth about $2000 actually.

    Bandicoot. :D

    Disclaimer: I have never been to Australia and actually know nothing about Bandicoots, Dingos or Crocodiles.... but I got caught up in Mr. Spear's crazy banter. Sorry everybody.

    Damn, that's one expensive liddle rodent, at that price I'd have you stuffed and placed on the mantle piece :eek: ;) :D :ninja:

    :D :D :D
