    hi!

    i have a question. Why do I have to scan and clean my computer in Safe Mode? When I had a virus(worm,trojan...), I scanned and cleaned it in Normal mode and everything was all right...

    No, you needn't reboot in safe mode unless a virus is already resident in memory. Even if that case, NOD32 should be able to clean / delete it after the next computer restart.

    I do it in safe mode to make it easy when I'm fixing a customer computer? How would you know if it's in memory or not until u go to safe mode.

    When you run a scan, NOD32 scans system memory first and tells you the result, then carries on scanning files. In safe mode, memory isn't scanned.
