Does NOD32 ever ask to modify hard drive?

I might have  compromised system.

 

Something that looked like it might have been ESET asked to make changes to hard drive. I do not have the exact words because this report came from the field from a panicked spouse.

 

Does NOD32 ever ask to modify hard drive?

 

If so, under what conditions?

 

Running Windows 10 with latest NOD32 version and database.

 

Thanks,

 

Ken

No. ESET NOD32 Antivirus should never ask you for an action except when a potentially unsafe or unwanted application is detected. Should it happen again, take a screen shot and post it here.

Tom,

 

This is helpful. Does NOD32 always ask when it detects something?

 

I disconnected machine from net and ran a full scan. NOD32 found and cleaned an inbound email had a trojan exe embedded in a .zip. Let NOD32 fix it.

 

The zip was not opened by the user and after saying "no" to NOD32 several times, she said "yes."

 

The questions I can't answer

1. was this a new trojan which got flagged again when I ran the full scan or was it a new one

2. What did NOD32 (or an imposter) do the first time she said "yes".

 

 

Now muddling over whether a complete rebuild is called for.
