    I came from AVG and I just installed a trial version of NOD32. AVG had the option to right click a single file or a bunch of files and scan those specific files but I can't find the option in NOD32. Can someone help me here?

    Hello forumguy.

    Open the gui from the tray and press f5. You should be in advanced mode. Scroll down until you see context menu. The settings should be checkmarked.

    Thanks! Found it kind of weird that it doesn't do it by default.

    Ps, not sure if it's just me again or a bug but the program doesn't ask me if I try to scan more than 8 files even though that is checked as well.

    It should be checked by default. That has been my experience.
    ESET would have to answer that question. :D

    I see it just fine....I just opened Windows Explorer...I right clicked a single file...from the popup menu I see NOD32 Antivirus System..if I select that it scans the file for me.

    If I select a group of files it does the same.
