When I open NOD32, ver .642, and see the main heading under "Protections Status" I see the numbers of files scanned constantly increasing, now 2,048,162, as well as "Web Access Scanning" which also increases, even though I am not actively browsing. Does it continually scan files? If so, which ones? And, why would it also scan Web Access if not actively browsing? 2 million files is a lot of scanning It will be well above that number by the time you see this. Only time it changes back to zero is if you completely shut it down, and start up again.
