Since I do not use NOD32 as my resident scanner is there an option to disable nod32krn.exe from starting up with Windows as it eats about 10000K from my RAM. Even if it's there as a safeguard for unwarranted uninstallations or whatnot, I still would prefer the choice to have it run or not or it's no different than spyware....no offense. If I must edit the registry, I'll do it. But I just want to make sure there is no hidden or secret switch command I don't know about. Thanks.
