hi i wrote whole novel here but lost it because i had to login again so i m going to be real brief this time. I would like to know why nod AV v3 needs to connect to internet when i open browser. If i deny it pages do not load. It does not want to access internet when i open any other program for internet like online games, torrent client ect.. Most important does it check only pages visited when internet access granted or can it send whatever data somewhere since it has access? How does this need to access internet it has really work? Why not for all internet programs? I noticed that webroot spysweeper wants to connect when i start windows but i deny it and internet connection is not limited in anyway by this. I have real time, email, web access protection turned on, in fact everything it offers is turned on except automatic updates since i like to do that my self but regular. So is there anyway to deny access, still have all protection on and be protected? Nod AV v2 had no need to access internet, except when updating.
