    If I wanted to configure SSM to protect important NOD32 processes from termination, which of the following processes should be protected from termination?

    NOD32.EXE
    NOD32KUI.EXE
    NOD32KRN.EXE

    I originally had all three set to Restart if Terminated, but that was a mistake. Every time I had an automated scan of my C drive set to run, it would restart it after it was completed, and as a result, was scanning ALL DAY. I want to simply protect the part of the app that scans programs when started, and email when received (real-time protection).

    Your suggestions?

    NOD32KRN.EXE is teh nod32 service so protect it.

    NOD32KUI.EXE is just the control panel and NOD32.EXE is teh ondemand scanner.

    Thanks, WSFuser. I have set SSM to protect NOD32KRN from Termination, and to "Restart if Terminated".

    I wonder if I should also protect it from Suspending, Remote Code Control, and Data Modification? I am concerned I might affect the normal operation of NOD32 if I select these also. o_O

    Why do you protect it ? NOD32KRN.exe is already protected by itself,it is running as a service in Windows and it can't be terminated.If somehow it is terminated it starts again immediately ;)
