    With the 'old' NOD32 it was necessary to add javaw.exe and azureus.exe to the IMON exclusions list to prevent high CPU usage (Azureus Wiki).

    Is it still necessary with NOD32 Version 4? Either for CPU usage reasons or to avoid a detrimental effect on download speeds...

    Thanks.

    Hello JeremyWW,

    The .exe should be sufficient.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    If this is the case which I omitted to read and understand correctly, I leave you in the most capable hands of the experts and Moderators here.

    Best of luck !

    I'm using Azureus as well as NOD32 v4. I haven't excluded any program at all, including Azureus or any Java components. There is no detrimental effect. CPU usage is normal or low.

    Having said that: I've made it a habit of excluding folders that have a preallocated file of large size with frequent updates, such as the MS Exchange message store or folders containing, say, a large, frequently updated MS Access database. If you preallocate your files in Azureus why don't you experiment with excluding the download folder, or not, and see if there is an effect.

    IF you do that, keep in mind that an on-demand scan of that folder won't scan anything. You'd need to move the files after you download them but before you use them to another location if you want to check them for malware.

    Thanks...I get the feeling people generally are not experiencing problems with the NOD32 / Azureus combination any more, so I'll leave it be with no exclusions and see how it goes.
