    Hi,

    I upgraded to 3.0.621.0 and I can't find an Exit, or Hide feature for the tray icon (or to close egui.exe programically). The 2.7 version had an Exit feature.

    I do not always want NOD32 running... and the only way I can figure out how to close the GUI (so the tray icon is gone) is to close egui.exe in Task Manager.

    Am I missing something? I would think there should be a way to do this without having to go to Task Manager.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Actually, I would not mind it running, but I would especially want the ability to simply hide the icon. But sometimes I may need to shut everything down.

    yep...... it is recommanded to close all windows apps, including AV and firewall, when we have to install something, it is the clean install way... It is actually not easy to close nod32 v3

    The system tray context menu provides quick access to disabling the firewall and all other modules.

    Actually , both 2.7 and 3.0 can be stopped . This "Exit feauture" doesn't stop the program , just closes the user interface (a.k.a Control Center) :rolleyes:

    Yes, I know it is just the Control Center, and that you may have to go deeper to shut it all down.

    To be honest, I need to use NOD in varying modes... I have everything disabled by default because I do not want anything attached to any process (I work in development and I feel most comfortable with things fully unloaded at times).

    The problem now with NOD32 seems that this may not be fully possible. Since the GUI and the scanning interface are "merged", I can't use NOD32 on demand like before.

    If you shut down the GUI, and then try to right-click a file and scan with NOD32, it does not work with the 3.xx version. 2.7 still worked.

    I hope they separate this back out, or at least offer a way to hide that bright red icon (it is red because I altered the settings to not scan web sites, etc...).

    Anyway, any GUI application should have a way of unloading... so I do hope the hide icon or a simple GUI exit is in the next update. Having to use Task Manager is somewhat sloppy. But I temporarily went back to 2.7 for now, which is OK.

    If you just want to hide icon on system tray, right click on notification area and select the appropiate behavior for (whatever) icon there.

    Cheers

    Which does not work unless you're a local Administrator. Also even with all the scanner's "disabled" the "protocol filtering" proxy still runs, only way to truely eliminate Nod32 is to shut down the ESET Service.
