    Every time that I install NOD32 on my PC and laptop I have to manually adjust all the preferences and settings back to my preferred values. This is a long process because the number of settings ad modules.

    Is there a way to backup/restore the preferences and settings of all the modules and profiles?

    Thanks a lot.

    Yes there is. You need to backup selected module registry key and you're done.
    To restore them you just import that reg key.
    I've done it several times and it works just fine.

    These are the keys that you have to export...

    NO, Technically it is impossible now for Standard edition.

    Please export a registry backup file, then open it with a text editor... yes, Your nod32 configuration + some VERY SPECIFIC settings... like:
    1. the dir of installing
    2. username , e-password
    3. updates version, comp versions, etc
    4. and many other things which are changeable with updates and....

    Maybe in version 3.0, who knows? :D :cool:

    1. Most of users install programs in same directory. We don't share settings...
    2. Registration info can be separated
    3. Updates versions don't matter. NOD32 doesn't rely on them when updating.
    4. None that would affect how program works

    And i also haven't seen any problems related to this whatsoever.

    EDIT:
    Remember you have to save only marked ones. If you save other it may cause problems. Btw, Scheduler key can also be exported but it's not marked there...

    Info in marked keys has nothing to do with updating (regarding signature/components versions). That info is stored in InstalledComponents key (most of them). I'm no rookie with Windows systems either, especially not with registry part :p:D

    Thank you for your information Senior Developer of NOD32 :D :D :D

    Importing and exporting settings are available for RA, and it will be available soon for Standard edition. (export via .xml files, not registry files!) :D

    Just export the whole of the eset key (within the registry). It will have all of your setting, username and password etc and best of all, it can then be transferred to another pc if required.

    Personal swipes only ever escalate and end up forcing the closure of threads if they continue, so they are not tolerated, and no, it is never necessary to go after someone on a personal level. Keep things professional and on topic and everyone will get along just nicely.

    Thanks for the answers. I hope there is a more friendly method in NOD32 v3 for doing this. If you install in another directory there will be problems when using the exporting regisrty method I guess, but I have not checked the keys yet.

    Bingo, ;) at now also doing something with setup.xml in setup directory, using nod editor is possible (I think, not sure!), but it is better for waiting next versions. :D

    Completely configuration at standard version from Blackspear Manual, take only a few minutes in Standard version.

    Press the setup button under configuration file and this will create and xml file than can be copied to any other system for the same settings.
