    Currently I am running and rendering a simulation. It needs a lot of CPU, but I have realized that Nod32 4.0 is taking almost half of my resources.

    Since I wrote it myself, I am sure it is safe. Is there any way to put the process in a white list, so Nod32 does not have to scan it? The alternative is to shut down the whole program, what is risky.

    Thank you very much.

    Thanks for the help, but for some reason, it is not working. I suspect it is because I am creating a big amount of files, although I have excluded also the destiny directory.

    Ok, so I suppose the n¡only thing that I was missing was reseting. It is a pity that I cannot do it as long as the program is running.

    Thank you very much to both.

    Exclude app., per above instructions, assuming it is safe to do so, perhaps
    beboot and post back your findings.

    On behalf of Cudni and myself, you are welcome & await your reply.
