    EAV 4.2.40.0

    About the Exclusions Tab:

    NOD32_2010_06_08_1.gif

    I assume that we are talking here only about real-time (on-access) scanning and not also about on-demand scanning.
    Am I right?

    In the old days on NOD32 version 2 it could be wise to use both the long and the short file/folder name (easy to get them, for example, with Ninotech Path Copy 4).
    Is this still true? (It might depend on the Windows version you use; I still run XP-home SP3)

    Does EAV 4.2.40.0 give a warning in case an excluded file has been changed?
    If I remember me well, NOD32 version 2 didn't do it. Has this been changed?

    Exclusions are valid for all scanners.

    There are no such problems with setting exceptions as of v3.

    No, it does not give any warning. Even from a purely technical point of view, counting hashes for files would have a significant adverse effect on the performance.

    Hi Randy and Marcos, thanks.

    1.

    I'm not quite sure whether these are not contradicting:

    The ESET KB articles mentioned by Randy:

    and:

    the posting from Marcos:

    From Marcos:

    OK, thanks.

    From Marcos:

    OK, thanks, I understand.
    At the other hand, if you don't have too much of them, would it really slow things down that much?
    (Even the old and now retired BOClean had that feature.)
    It would be nice to have such an optional feature (where users can choose whether to use it or not to use it). But I understand it.
