    I want to use Eset Nod 32 antivirus on DEMAND only. How do I set it from loading with Windows 7?

    Hello acooldozen

    You can of course disable real time scanning and then disabel eset in msconfig. Then you will have, without any doubt, the most expensive luxury on demand scanner, ever..... You probably know, but I just have to point out, that you will loose a lot of the good solid protection nod32 can offer you. Acooldozen, if you do not have any other protection in place, then it is definitely not advisable to configure nod32 to be a on demand scanner only.

    Regards, Janus

    I have recently installed Webroot SecureAnywhere Essentials, and do really like the SPEED of the deep scan and of course the light footprint. No signatures to download. Always current. I have been using eSet for quite a few years and it's time to try something new!

    I don't see any reasons for disabling egui nor ekrn via msconfig. Ekrn is crucial for updating the engine and modules, egui will enable you to run update manually on demand.

    Bear in mind that on-demand protection is not as good as if all modules were enabled and fully functional and on-demand scans can miss threats that you would be otherwise protected against.

    Why not run both Webroot and Eset in realtime? There should be no problem.

    A scheduled scan with your scanning targets set correctly should not be a burden on your O/S as I run Win 7 as well.

    Trigger your scheduler for an interval of 10080 minutes, that will cause a scheduled scan every week, compensate those numbers to suit your needs.

    As noted: you should not unload any Windows services, or MSCONFIG items, on-demand or scheduled.
