    Is there any way to scan with AH while accessing files from CDs,DVDs,USB drives...?

    AH is used by the real-time (resident) scanner on create or modification of existing files. The only way to do that is to check the cd with the on-demand scanner.

    I have found an option to enable AH even on-execute :)

    Maybe handy for all of us to know?
    Could you share this information with all of us?

    It's just a visual mistake, the checkbox does not have any effect on the program. I'm just checking if the checkbox appears in the EN version as well, it will be removed as it's of no use.

    I thought it was more exotic. This one I found.

    But thanx

    OK, I've just learned it works fine. However, be careful when enabling this option as it might considerably slow down opening certain runtime packed files.

    It would be great if there was an option to enable it only with removable media...

    As Marcos said you can enable it on demand for the removables

    I have advanced heuristics enabled, and when I updated my Nero, the installation seemed to freeze. ESS was using 40-50% CPU for a very long time. Is this allright?

    Perhaps the update files were downloaded as sfx archives and the real-time scanner unpacked them and emulated the code by means of advanced heuristics which took some time. The best would be to fiddle around the real-time scanner settings and disable adavnced heuristics and sfx archives to confirm or deny my assumption.

    Considering how I've seen even NOD32 2.7 stumble over single files for as long as 30 seconds, I'd say it's probably normal. Probably a drawback of NOD32's heuristics which uses dynamic emulation.
