    I`m using NOD32 on Vista (Home Basic) with Windows Defender enable as default. When OS starts I can see a big activity of NOD32. In AMON space in NOD32 Control Center I can see it scan more than 8000 files.

    It is normal? Windows Defender can affect NOD32 this way?

    Thanks

    I cannot say if it is normal because it all depends on your start-up files and activity after computer start .


    They are compatible with each other

    What do you consider not normal? AMON scans files as you use your system...that file count will continue to rise as time goes on. I recently booted up my laptop, I'm already over 11,000 files.

    Sure. Maybe this behaviour is normal. But it`s diferent when I use Windows XP in my older computer. The number of 8000+ files scanned was counted in startup only.

    This is totally normal.
    Defender scans files (file access), so nod also scan the same file. This is even good. Every file scanned by defender will be too scanned by nod32.
    Same with superantispyware. In my opinion, its great that way.
