    Hi:

    On-demand scan has been running for some time now, stopping at each alert for user interention. How to I get it to keep scanning through these alerts and collect/display them at the end of the scan for user intervention? Or better, to just collect them in the log and revisit them later for rework?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    As it turns out, I run v2.7, 3.x and 4.x on three different machines. The 4.x scan completed this morning sometime and displayed the list of all the stuff it found. So as you note, that's the answer. Thanks.

    Wow! You mean this was not possible on earlier versions of NOD32? I was thinking if the cleaning in on-demand scan profile was set to strict, then all malware would be automatically quarantined and deleted without prompting for user intervention?

    No -- that wasn't the task. The task was to scan and report, not to clean, w/o user intervention. I haven't tried strict, because I want to see what it is going to do first.
