    Hi, im thinking about getting this for my WHS Home Server but i have a few questions before getting it.


    1. From my research, this version supports WHS correct?
    2. Does it run as a service? Or will i have to be logged in for it to run scans.
    3. If i set a scheduled scan (daily) will it run the daily scan without being logged in?

    Thanks.

    Historically, only the Business Editions of Nod32 could be installed on Windows Server OS's so you may need to wait for that. As for the software itself, it runs as a system service that constantly scans regardless of a user being logged in. Scheduled scans are initiated from that system service and will happen automatically so long as the system is up.

    Afaik, the Home edition installer can be used in Windows Home Server, win NT4, win2k, XP, Vista, Seven and it will run as a service.
    If you have some other questions, you can post it here. Thanks.

    Hello,

    ESET NOD32 Antivirus runs with both a service component ("EKRN") and a userland component ("EGUI"). You can install the ESET NOD32 Antivirus v4/v50 Home Edition on Microsoft Windows Home Server. The earlier ESET NOD32 Antivirus v3 Home Edition was released before Windows Home Server and does not recognize it as a home server operating system. As SmackyTheFrog noted, scheduled scans are performed by the service, so you don't need to be logged in for them to occur.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
