    egui.exe is the user interface .

    You don't need this option in WinRAR , because if real-time protection modules are enabled , they will take care of the archive

    Thanks HT_boy. Do you mean to say that I do not need to check the RAR files that I download? I used to do this with Nod32. I just felt more secure to do it this way. So, if real time file protection is on, which is, I do not need to check the rar files. Please, reconfirm. thanks

    Yes , I confirm . That is why it is called real-time protection . It checks everything in real-time

    You can check out this thread and find some examples:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=190388

    This is for internet download manager, but with winrar it's basically the same except you use the parameter "%f" instead of [File].

    The "Virus scanner name" field should point to ecls.exe including the path (For example: C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\ecls.exe).

    And the paramters could be something like this:
    "%f" /ah /adware /unsafe /unwanted /heur+ /sfx+ /pack+ /arch+ /all /scroll+ /scanmem- /antistealth+ /prompt /break- /quit+

    If you read the nod32/ess help and search for command line parameters you should find an explanation for all the available parameters and then decide what options you prefer.

    But as HiTech Boy already said you really don't need it since the files will be scanned when you uncompress the archive. In that case it will be scanned twice.
