When I install new programs (and I enjoy testing highly recommended, safe, freeware), I find that IMON slows the completed download of a zip or rar file to a crawl, especially when the file is 100% downloaded. It takes about 30 seconds before AMON or IMON analyzes the archive. The file downloads normally until it's 100% completed and then NOD32 takes over. For this period, my keyboard is practically frozen until NOD32 completes the scan of the archive. The same thing happens when an exe file is launched to install a program. AMON analyzes every unpacked file, and for large programs, that can take a while before the file is extracted to a temp directory, and that's just to prepare the full install. A good example was a 30 mb or so Paint Shop Pro demo version. It took several minutes for NOD32 to analyze the entire extraction to a temp directory I also use an uninstaller that analyzes every install. When this program is run, it creates a temporary txt file, which AMON analyzes over and over, (since the txt file is constantly updated with registry strings), until the uninstaller analysis is finished, creating quite a CPU logjam for all programs running (the uninstaller, the program I'm installing and NOD32). I've followed Blackspear's settings, and I'm not complaing about all this AV analysis, because one can't be too sure about unknown dll's and exe files. However, the length of time it's taking to install programs and download files is problematic. What's the general recommendation? Right now, I have IMON and AMON set to scan all files, with everything checked in the AMON scanner setup, except "list all files".
