    I have the latest version of NOD32 v4.2.71.2.

    I was curious if the new update files of NOD32 now includes in order to make it to act more now like a HIPS ...or something like a registry protector. Coz when I was uinstalling 360Amigo System SpeedUp using Revo Uninstaller Pro, during the process of uninstallation NOD32 pop-ups a message. This was also similar thing happens with some registry protector program or HIPS or behaviour blocker like in Avast...it pop ups and ask if the action is legitimate or trusted.

    Actually, this was the first time NOD32 acts like this. I've uninstalled many programs using Revo Uninstaller Pro in the past but NOD32 didn't interfere like this. :rolleyes:

    No it's not a HIPS detection. (NOD32 does not have a HIPS module)

    It's a PUA detection (potentially unwanted application)

    If you have the PUA option ticked in the settings, you can now and then see detections like this one. If you untick that option, PUA warnings will not popup in the future. But I don't recommend you to disable that option.
