    I encounter a problem when logging in as user to my windows xp system. NOD32 tells me that the "Anti-Stealth technology is working in limited mode" due to not having administration rights.

    The questions are: o_O

    A. What does mean limited in this case?

    B. Do i have a disatvantage by working as user regarding to the stealth detection?

    C. If yes, how to startup nod32kui.exe as admin? Only with the runas command, always typing the admin pw at startup might get anoying.

    Best Regards Caimbeul

    NOD32 has an excellent protection against rootkits. A long time ago before version 2.7, Advanced heuristics was tweaked to detect most rootkits proactively before they can get activated. Version 2.7 has brought Anti-Stealth technology that can detect even active rootkits.

    Remember that without administrator privileges it's impossible for rootkits to get installed and activate. Scheduled scans should AS have enabled.
