    Go to advanced setup. Then go to computer, and select Antivirus and Antispyware. Then select real-time file system protection. Click on the threatsense engine parameter setup box. Then select extensions. Enter the extension in the box that you do not want NOD 32 to scan. Then click add, and ok. It will then be populated into the list of extensions not to scan.

    Most AV's don't scan ISO images because doing so is pointless. They only do it with on-demand scans and even that is not done by all.

    Real-time protection doesn't scan archives (including iso images). You can exclude the iso extension in particular on-demand scanner profiles.
    Should you have any further question, feel free to ask in our official forum at https://forum.eset.com.

    Hello,

    Just to add to Marcos' comment, if you are running ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4, you should look into upgrading to Version 7, which is the current release.

    The upgrade is free for licensed users of the software, and it provides additional protection against emerging threats through services such as ESET's LiveGrid cloud-based reputation system.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
