    Hi.
    Is there a way to disable annoying every-now-and-then taskbar balloon notifications about "your system is exposed to risk..." because the realtime protection is disabled?
    I really don't want to use NOD32 realtime protection - my needs are only active web protection and on-demand scan but I couldn't find anything in the advanced view that turns this off.
    Specs: NOD32 v6, Windows 7 x64
    Thanks in advance.

    To disable real-time protection permanently, disable automatic real-time protection start in the advanced setup. However, doing so is dangerous as ESET will not protect your computer and threats will not be blocked.

    I have no problem disabling real-time protection, I know how to do it. I just don't know how to avoid balloon warning messages! I don't care how dangerous it is - these messages are obtrusive and they are bothering me in my work all day.

    reddice,
    thanks for the tip!
    I can do it via some tune-up apps... however I'm "just" complaining how ESET changed this balloon tip in version 6 to be every now and then - and you can't do nothing about it. Previous versions could disable it completely or it could just inform you upon first Windows startup. Version 6 however informs me at least 20 times a day and that's so annoying. I'm considering downgrading..
