    Are there any standard configurations I should worry about. This is my first time with NOD32 V3. I seem to be having issues with Windows 7 not recognizing my USB connection from my HP printer, an annoying message "Do you want to prevent this program from making changes to your computer" message comes on whenever I open the printer and the printer fails after I re-install it. I'm not sure yet if it's a Windows 7 or Printer issue, but was working fine before I installed NOD32. Also from time to time I can't access any web sites except what I list as my exceptions in the "advanced settings" portion of NOD32. How do I say "allow for every site except those whereby a dangerous virus or malware is trying to make changes to my PC. I realize this is a jumble, but there has to be a standard configuration which works and doesn't give me an "USB device unrecognized" when I unplug and replug the printer cable. I'm an extreme novice on this. Sorry

    The message "Do you want to prevent this program from making changes to your computer" certainly doesn't come from ESET.
    Basically ESET NOD32 Antivirus should work out of the box without the need to adjust settings. Does the issue actually go away right after uninstalling EAV?

    You would need to better familiarise yourself with Windows 7 User Account Control Settings once done, there should be no issues on allow, deny. etc.

    Best of luck.
