    Hi, I'd like to know because in NOD32 configuration it is better to chose "NOD32 Kernel - Execution of an external application".
    thanks

    Are you talking about when you set up a scheduled scan? If so, then yes that is required when setting up such a scan for using command line switches.

    Cheers :D

    I think FoxesHunter may mean to ask, "Why is it better to run a scheduled scan with the command line options, instead of using the 'NOD32 - scanning' option?" What are the advantages?

    I prefer to scan it by alone. I dont think that is better to schedule a scan. For example, two times per week i scan my pc (In Depth) by alone.

    From what I remember Kernal Execution launches the nod32 application.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    Can you tell me because if I use "NOD32 Kernel - Execution of an external application" with this "Command line"
    C:\ /clean /ah /all /subdir+ /heur+ /scanfile+ /scroll+ /arch+ /pack+ /mapi- /pattern+ /scanboot+ /scanmbr+ /heurdeep /log+ /prompt /program
    NOD32 needs 2 hours for scanning and if I run it manually in-depht analysis it need 40 mnutes.
    In your opinion it is important to configure NOD32 antivirus with "NOD32 Kernel - Execution of an external application"?
    thanks

    Using the swiches that you posted will scan absolutely everything to the maximum. In-depth analysis does not. And because it is a scheduled scan I can have it do so when I’m not hanging around waiting for it to finish ;) :D

    Cheers :D

    But as i see in this command line is missing the scanning of :self-extracting archives, email files, alternative ntfs streams. Also missing diagnostic method for adware/spyware.

    These are all new and I'm not yet aware of the switches for them.

    Cheers :D
