    When installing new software I quit Nod and Winpatrol but nod is still running.I try to stop the process but it just restarts.Do I have to disable each scan section to shut it down completely.
    Does it have to be shut down when installing new software?

    I've never had a problem installing programs while NOD is running.

    Me either..... EVER! Thats one of the so cool things about NOD!

    Maybe one time when I was doing something really funky, but I can't remember the details, but I do remember that all I did was quit nod and it was fine.
    If I remember, I let you know.

    I never disable NOD when installing programs and have not had a problem yet. I might disable it when I install PG and RD though...

    I've never had a problem, including these 2 programs.

    Cheers :D

    I would definitely NOT turn off NOD or any other AV when installing new software, That is one of the quickest routes to infection

    This is true now a days if you dare to mess with some of the "free" stuff you can find.... once upon a time they merely tried to add adware and trogans... now they realize people are starting to wise up...
    the next wave will be trogans that install when you install the software itself or maybe the included goodies that supposedly enhance, or add to the original.

    Only software from reputable businesses can be trusted.
    Anything that can be tampered with cannot be trusted. ie: executables, patches, upgrades, and/or keys etc.

    Installed the trial of Trojanhunter and installed no probs with Nod beta and winpatrol running.Trojanhunter didn't find a single thing so I guess Nod is doing a good job!
