I'm having several issues that I believe to be caused by NOD 32. 1. It takes forever to copy or delete files from the desktop or any other directory. 2. It takes forever for the start menu to load. The icons in the start menu are little blank white squares which slowly load to the way they are suppose to look. I have to wait for them to finish loading before being able to access them. 3. Also when i open any folder with almost any type of file it shows the files as little blank white squares. The files then load very slowly to the way they are suppose to look. I'm not able to access them until they finish loading. If I disable the real time file system protection all the problems I listed go away. I have advanced hueristics on file execution unchecked as shown in the pic below. I have advanced hueristics on execution of files from removable media checked because I use flash drives, and mass storage devices everyday so I don't want to disable this feature. Is their any more settings that could be causing my machine to run at a crawl? The pic below was taken after waiting for approximately 15 seconds, and the files still had not finished loading.
