    Hello Everyone,

    I just recently purchased NOD32 software to replace Norton’s. I have yet to install the software due to my current location, but have been reading the site to get a better understand of the settings and what not. I have gone through the tutorial by “Blackspear” which is top notch and can get no easier to explain the set up. Two thumbs up for your efforts. I do have a few questions hopefully they can be entertained?

    First and foremost I spend a lot of time on-line gaming is one of the reason I bought the software (Heard extremely light on resources). Is the tutorial that Blackspear posted on-line friendly? I don’t want anything slowing down my connection.

    Second what exactly is On Demand scan? Is this something that is running all the time to monitor on-line attacks? Does it serve the same purpose of a weekly scan, but something that can be ran at the moment? I’m confused just exactly what its purpose is?

    Sorry for the long post I’m just trying to understand and figure how to get the most out of the software without slowing down any network connectivity.

    Thanks in advance

    ***EDIT***

    I Figured out after little more research what these features are …and there uses

    on-demand is just a scan u can run. as for blackspear' setting, if u set ur programs to higher efficiency, IMON will scan teh files before theyre created/downloaded. if u wish u can set IMON to automatically switch to higher compatibility if the scan takes too long or if the file is above a certain size. that being said, i usually set my games, p2p, download managers, and proxomitron to higher compatibility.

    Yes on demand is a scan that you tell it perform, like on a shcedule, daily weekly whatever, when you think your computer is acting goofy and want to do a scan it is on demand.

    The always resident scanning in the background as you use your computer is called on access, it scans files as you access them.
