I've used NOD for about 2 years now, but never really payed much attention to the profiles before. I've read some things on the forum, but was left with a few questions. I notice there are 3 profiles available -- My Profile, Context Menu, and Control Center. I noted that others have discussed that they are the same, by default. I actually went ahead and deleted "My Profile", and followed Blackspears "extra settings" posting; assigning his values to the Control Center profile. 1) Should I also copy the settins to the Context Menu profile? I think I understand that Context Menu is when I right click a file, and scan it directly from Windows. Wouldn't AMON (and the Control Center profile?) prevent viruses from affecting my system, even if I did a less-inclusive Context Menu scan? 2) Aren't there actually 2 "My Profiles"? One for the scanning settings, and the other for the update settings? 3) I did a complete scan of my system using the new settings provided by Blackspear. The scan took 1.5 hours (up from the default settings of 30 minutes), and (only) found one trojan that was not found by standard scanning. Although I have NOD scanning nightly when it's not being used, does the additional scanning time warrant keeping the deeper scan settings? 4) If I go through the trouble of using Blackspears settings, and associate a night scan with the appropriate profile, why do I need to use command line arguments to do the same thing? Thanks very much for the help. I'm sure I'll have other questions later.
