I have a problem with NOD32 Version 3.0.621.0 on all archives and software installers. The problem is that such packed files take quite more time to be accessed as well as copied/deleted from the hard disk when NOD32 real time protection is enabled. I wanted to exclude all such archives, software installers and packed files from the real time scanning. Although I found that it was easy to exclude ZIP and RAR like this: Go to the Entire advanced setup tree > Real time file system protection > Setup > Extensions tab > Exclude archives like ZIP and RAR from real-time scanning. I can always right-click and scan such archives and runtime packers before opening them, or when the contents of the archive, runtime packer or software installer are extracted, NOD32 can automatically scan them. But all software installer packages like NOD32 (eav_nt32_enu) Kaspersky anti-virus (kav220.127.116.111en) as well as adobe product installers, etc still take a lot of time to be copied/deleted from the hard disk to the recycle bin. This was not a problem with NOD32 2.7. All these software installer packages have the .exe extension. I don’t want to exclude .exe files from scanning. Is it possible to set NOD32 not to scan archives, runtime packers and software installers until their contents are extracted ?
