I am running NOD32 AV 8.0.301.0. If I run Depth Scan not as an Administrator, I get a list of files in the log with an error opening message. However if I run the same scan as Administrator, then nothing shows up in the scan log. When using version 7 of NOD32, I used to get these entries in the scan log even when running it as Administrator. Is this a bug in version 8 or was version 7 incorrect?
Problem in Version 8 of Eset NOD 32 Antivirus
I guess they only made changes to how the antivirus shows or logs the information in the log file. I don’t think that’s a bug. It is possible that when you scan your computer using the Depth Scan option, there are files on the computer that restricts access unless you are using or you are logged in as the administrator.
This is very common when you are using Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and later but not with Windows XP. I guess this is because of the User Access Control feature introduced in Windows Vista and later operating systems. As long as the program works and doesn’t display a major error on the screen then there should be no problem.
To maintain the security on your computer, make sure to always update your antivirus or probably install the latest version if it is possible. To download the latest version, visit ESET NOD32 Antivirus. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 as well as Windows Home Server 2003 and Windows Home Server 2011.
