    Hello all. I reinstalled Windows yesterday and decided to upgrade to NOD32 v3 as it was a free upgrade. So far I love it, the UI is clean and still fast. However I cannot for the life of me work out where the option is to disable the context menu options for on-demand scanning.

    Has this option been removed? I am sure it was available in v2. I don't really want to start messing around with context menu editors, I would just rather do it "officially" via the NOD32 options. Is this possible?

    Hello!


    I don't remember for such an option in v2's setup . There might have been something during the installation , I don't remember .

    There is not such thing in v3 . You can do it with utility like Autoruns (by Microsoft) and disable ESET's context menu entries . A reboot will be necessary to "unload" them .

    Hey. I just installed 2.7 in an XP VM and you're are right, the option is only available during installation.

    I don't like the "advanced options" entry with v3 as it makes my context menu even bigger. Also the text entry for an on-demand scan is unnecessarily long. They should just have "Scan with NOD32".

    Hey!

    You use Virtual Machine , most likely you know of Autoruns and will have no problems to use it :thumb:

    Hello

    You can remove it by deleting the following registry key

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B089FE88-FB52-11D3-BDF1-0050DA34150D}

    Remember, MAKE A BACKUP FIRST!!

    I have included a backup, just in case
