    Hello!

    By default, AMON is set to scan all files in NOD32 2.5.x. Why?
    In NOD32 2.12.3 by default AMON scan only files with common extensions that might potentially carry viruses. Why this big difference between 2.5 and 2.12.3? Is this becasuse of optimize scanning?
    Is it safe to scan only files with common extensions that could be virus in NOD32 v. 2.5.x?

    Thanks!

    Izi

    Users requested this feature and Eset may have other reasons as well.

    I configure NOD the way I want to use it. :)

    Maybe to offer the best protection settings for everybody ...
    And thread uses new kind of files, so why add extentions to a list every time a new one is used by a threats ?? ;)

    Guessing, I would say it offers maximum protection.

    From the help file "To change the list of the extensions of the files to be scanned by AMON, click the Extension button (not recommended)."

    I didn't see less performance if I have the maximum protection enabled, and with others AV's I see, so with NOD32 I always use the maximum... ;)
