    When planning a scan, I can choose between On-demand scanner and NOD32 kernel external application. What is the difference between both? I guess all the commands can be set within the profile too. Am I wrong?

    The kernel performs the scan from the kernel , AFAIK , whereas the other type of scan launches the NOD32.exe . With the kernel type you can scan the files that belong to all users but the nod32.exe you scan your files only.


    No , your are right.

    I did a scan of all local drives using three different ways (Vista) and checked the number of scanned files:

    1. in depth on demand scanner: 702,000
    2. command line, user (user = administrator) rights: 756,000
    3. command line, admin rights (right click) : 761,000

    How is this to interpret? Are 60,000 files ignored by the on demand scan? Does NOD32 not have "on board" means to perform a full scan, i.e. a scan of all files?
