As a starter, I'm running Win7 RTM and NOD 4.0.437.0 both updated to the latest. Recently I ran a manual scan, on-demand, in-depth, using the 'Scan as administrator' option. The scan took 7 minutes, as opposed to the usual 12 that I've seen in the past. The total number of files is actually greater than those in past scans, as well. Looking at the log files indicates that NOD is no longer scanning the C:\System Volume Information, C:\ProgramData, or C:\Users\AllUsers folders. Even when Scan as administrator has been selected. I have checked through my settings. All files are set to be scanned, no exclusions are set at all. Can anyone please advise me on how to ensure full protection? I've not modified my settings in the least, but NOD seems to be operating under limited permissions, and that makes me worried. Viruses love to hide in the system volume information folder, and this sudden change of scan behavior without reason is troubling.
