Hi there. Just got a query I hope someone can help with. I was using NOD32 2.7 since it was released and have now just switched to trying out ESS Beta 1b which I am very happy with and no problems encountered so far. However, the one thing I have noticed is the time it's taking to install large apps/games compared with 2.7. I haven't changed any of the default settings and it seems to me that ESS is scanning files as they're written to my HDD which is causing apps/games to install very slowly. I realise that in game manuals it is suggested to disable anti virus apps during install but I never have done this and have never had any problems. For example, I've just installed Battlestations Midway and it took over 10 mins during which files being written to my HDD were very intermittent rather than constant HDD activity. Also, installing Nero 7 during the extraction process at the beginning it would stop at 97% and I had to wait about 10 mins before installation proceeded. I can only put this down to ESS scanning the files as they are written to the HDD which is no problem other than the time it's taking. Is there any options under the anti virus section you recommend disabling/not needed to increase the speed at which files are installed? Under realtime system settings all options are checked (eg. runtime packers, self extracting archives, advanced heurisitcs). Presumably it's one of these that's causing the slowdown. If I remember rightly the default settings in 2.7 didn't include some of these options. Any help/advice would be much appreciated. PS. Am using Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
