    The recent false positive fiasco with NOD and Spyware Doctor raised a question in my mind. Is there anyway for NOD32 to protect itself from other programs modifying it?

    For example, Spyware Doctor just threw NOD32 for a loop by quarantining a bunch of it's files. Is there any way to prevent something like that from happening again? A way to prevent programs from modifying NOD's files or placing NODs files in quarantine?

    Hello,

    NOD32 does contain some mechanisms to prevent things like tampering and disabling of the service but, ultimately, anything which is done in software and can be undone in software, so the answer is, "No, there is no 100% all-encompassing way to prevent one program from modifying another."

    Regards,
