I recently went through my annual format/reinstall and am having trouble getting NOD32 back to where I had it. In particular, I am finding myself unable to disable boot sector scanning of the A:\ drive. When I try to add the boot sector via the exception options, it actually tries to scan the boot sector. I can't for the life of me figure out why it would scan when I try to make it not scan, but that's beside the point. In any case, that is keeping me from setting it to not scan the A:\ at shutdown. I have tried simply adding the a:\ folder and all subfolders, but that doesn't work either. I had it working right beforre the format, so this is driving me nuts now especially when I go to shut down the system. Why isn't the Boot Sector exception working, and is there a registry-based way around this?
