Finally, ESET NOD32 has been installed. Now let’s look at the program interface.
Immediately striking beautiful design of the main window. There are six tabs in the window where all the necessary functions are located. These tabs are:
- the main
- PC scan
- Help and support
Now more about each of them.
“Home” – here you can view information about the current state of the PC and which modules were included. To facilitate the work with the antivirus, you can use the “frequently used” actions.
The second tab is called PC Scan.
It has such buttons:
Quick scan is a quick scan. With this scan, all local disks are scanned, and all threats are removed.
Selective scanning. When choosing this item, you can select which drives or removable drives you want to check.
To do this, enter the path to the file or click on a specific area of ? The PC and click the “Scan” button. After that, the virus scan in this sector will start.
Setting up a computer scan. With this button, you can customize the scan settings. We return to it a little later, when we proceed to the study of each environment separately.
Similarly, with the main tab here you can use the service frequently used tasks. We continue …
The third tab is the Update.
Here you can update the anti-virus database, as well as find out when it was last updated. Also, you can see which version of databases is currently installed. There is also a button to activate the program. With it, you can renew your license. Under the button, you can see the license validity period and its type. Of course, there is information about the version of your program, and the ability to check for updates for it (not for virus databases!).
On the Settings tab, you can independently enable or disable security modules.
If you have NOD32 installed on several computers and you do not want to spend time configuring each of them, then you will be able to easily import and export settings to the configuration file. In the advanced settings, you can explore more in-depth settings. To do this, click the “Advanced Settings” button. But back to them later, for this will be a whole section.
“Utilities,” this is the tab where the useful and straightforward utilities built into the NOD32 antivirus are placed.
These programs are straightforward, so consider them in brief.
Log files Here you can see the past actions of the anti-virus, which are recorded in the log ? for example, removal of infected objects, and so on.
Scheduler. Useful utility. With it, you can add tasks to be performed at a set time. For example, you can add a job to update virus databases at 6:00, and scan at 6:20.
Protection statistics. Shows the number of infected files found and how many of them have been cleared.
Quarantine. Infected files detected by the antivirus should be sent to quarantine. It is a safe place for dangerous objects, from which, if necessary, you can restore any file almost instantly. Ask for what? Here, for example: after you double-checked the quarantine, a record was discovered the antivirus mistakenly identified that as dangerous. To restore it, press just one button, and it is ready to work again.
Monitoring Here you will see only the graph of the counted and recorded objects. And nothing more.
ESET SysInspector is a utility that thoroughly checks all system components: drivers, network connections, registry entries, and installed programs. After that, the application creates analytical reports. Using these reports, you can understand the reason for the strange behavior of the system ? for example, software incompatibility or virus infection.
Running processes is a mini-application that analyzes all system processes and verifies them through the Eset Live Grid cloud. After the check, the program indicates the degree of danger of the process, for how many users it is running the time when it was noticed for the first time.
Submit a file for analysis – this program allows you to check any file on your computer for the presence of virus code, with the help of professionals in the ESET anti-virus laboratory.
To do this, you need to specify why the file was sent, select this file and enter the email address. Mail is required if the laboratory will need to find out more detailed information about the infected file.
ESET SysRescue. If your PC is infected with a virus, but NOD32 is installed on the second computer, then you can quickly burn a recovery disk. And then, with his help, to cure your computer. Unusually high utility rescues in such cases.
In the “Help and Support” tab, a novice user can find information about how ESET NOD32 works.
If you were unable to find the necessary information here, then you can refer to the forum, or the Customer support section. When you click the “About Antivirus ESET NOD32” button, you can find out how much time is left until the end of the license, as well as find out the current versions of the program modules.
