    I was wondering if it was possible to disable the antispyware part of NOD32. Even I have to reinstall the program with a custom install, I don't want conflicting programs. Thanks for your help.

    ESET programs doesn't have different modules like some other programs have . ESET have one exe only (ekrn.exe) performing scanning for all kind of threats . You can not stop an antispyware part because there is no such part . However , you can stop ekrn.exe from scanning for adware/spyware/riskware applications , which will make no difference when it comes to possible conflicts , it will only reduce protection.

    Generally you can use any other AS application , ESET Antivirus/ESET Smart Security are compatible with them .

    My personal suggestion would be to rely on EAV/NOD32 for the real-time protection for spyware threats and if this is not enough for you , dedicated antispyware for on-demand scans only

    HiTech_boy's is right.

    You can disable the detection of Adware/spyware/riskware, but it only makes NOD not report those items to you and ignore them. You can't really disable a "module".

    Besides that: I haven't noticed any incompatibility with other anti spyware programs so far. Have you?
