    This may have been addressed before, but I am curious.

    Thanks,

    Just to make you work a bit(lol)
    I think every AV product,not just NOD,should have default install set to strongest protection:-then if you choose to lower protection you have to alter settings to what suits you:-this way inexperienced users are protected to the best of the ability of the AV they have chosen,I bet there's quite a few(lots) of users of NOD that have installed with default settings and have no idea how to change them,and don't even know about Blackspears settings

    I'm a Nod user and have read through Blackspears settings tutorial, a very comprehensive and complete setup I must say, but personally, I prefer the default settings tweaked to my personal needs. I did not find setting up Nod to be difficult or problematic at all, and found the default settings more then adequate protection right out of the box. I ran Nod this way for a long time until I learned my way around the program and understood everything. I think Eset did a good job with the default settings. I prefer to interact with the program instead of having everything done quitely in the background, I like to be alerted by my security software when there's a problem, but I can see where Blackspears settings would be advantageous for some. I really like Nod32, it exceeds my expectations for an anti-threat software.

    Yeah i find the default settings with a few tweaks suits me best. I believe BS's settings set certain things to automatic which i don't like, i prefer to address issues manually.

    Hi,

    I think, there should be ab option for Blackspears settings,

    I installed NOD32 on my friends computer and I did Blackspears setting manually. If it coudld be auto than lot of time saving also.

    It can be

    Normal
    advance (Blackspears setting)
    Advance Custom (Manual Configure)

    Using a batch file to run the setup file with specific pre-configured configuration makes NOD32 install with any settings you like (possibly Blackspear settings) . Read the sticky post "Install NOD32 with Blackspears settings in No time"

    If you have "Advanced heuristics" enabled and under the 'Actions' tab you have "Clean" and "Delete" checked, though not too common, you run a very small risk of removing a required file. I've seen it happen to the remote desktop application called LogMeIn. Not sure if that's still the case.
