    I installed and updated NOD32, and when I rebooted, it started automatically scanning my c: drive. It slows down my computer when working with other software, and I would like to stop the scan, so I removed the check mark in the "Scheduler/Planner", but the scan did not stop, and I can't find a "STOP" button.??

    How do you stop it from scanning when it is auto started? (without turning AMON off).

    I don't want to disable it, I just want to stop (or pause) it scanning my hard drive while I am working on my computer.

    yes thats what i meant. sry if the word "disable" confuses you.

    btw you do realize your computer will be partly unprotected while AMON is "paused".

    Thanks for your help. I don't want to be unprotected, so I guess I will just deal with the slowness.

    My computer runs very fast with antivirus turned off, but slows down greatly with it turned on.

    Do you actually mean AMON or a background scan of the whole drive? AMON should not slow down your computer unless very complex exe files are continually being created on your drive - in this case you could exclude these particular files from scanning in the AMON setup.

    I will try that. What I am doing is DVD video/audio editing. Very large gig files.

    I was looking for ways to speed up the computer, and saw AMON was constantly scanning a large list of files, at first, I thought it was scanning my hard drive, but it looks like it is scanning the files in memory??, But I figured that was the cause for the "seem to be" extra load on my CPU.

    I need to upgrade my computer anyway, it is getting outdated.

    AMON definitely does not scan video files.

    I know, but it does take up CPU cycles with the constant scanning of the other files. The more CPU for the video editing, the faster I can get the job done.
    I will either temp disable AMON or upgrade my computer. Thanks everyone for your help.

    You could theoretically see a slow down upon continual creation / modification of exe/dll files, not upon accessing them.
