    Welcome to the forum sanjo
    I would suggest that you use the setup from this thread by Blackspear here

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=37509

    After you do the changes outlined in that thread, check again....I think you will find that it will check ALL the files, except those that are in use by Windows. e.g pagefile.sys
    Let us know how it goes...I am no guru with NOD, but others in here may provide more expertise.
    Cheers :)
    EDIT: Sorry Blackspear..it seems our replies crossed. I tried to help and after I posted saw your reply.
