I know that some users of Nod32 and Pest Patrol have had to exclude certain files of Pest Patrol in nod32 exclusion settings so that IMON does not have to be restarted each time after rebooting the computer. I think the same thing has happened with Nod32 and AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) and AOL Explorer. I am not a software client of AOL - I am only running their free Instant Messenger (AIM) and their browser (AOL Explorer). Every time I reboot my computer I have to restart IMON - this has been replicated on two computers after installation of AIM and AOL Explorer. Does anyone know what files I should exclude in these two pieces of software in Nod32 settings so that I do not have to reenable IMON (and then restart) every time I reboot the computer? It seems to me that Nod32 should not have to exclude these programs in any case - after all, the anti-virus should scan Instant Messenger file transfer, and what the Explorer browser encounters (?) on the internet. That is IMON's job in the first place. Does anyone have any advice? I appreciate your help.
