In this tutorial, we explain how to disable the ESET NOD32 antivirus temporarily. The need to want to disable the antivirus temporarily arises because sometimes we want to run files that the antivirus detects as viruses or sometimes just obstructs us in something we want to do on our computer. The solution to not having to uninstall the antivirus is only to disable it temporarily.
You can do this by right-clicking on the ESET NOD32 Antivirus icon that appears on the right side of the taskbar and then clicking where it says “Stop protection“.
For the reason explained above it is best to do it with the other method that we explain below.
Disable real-time protection of ESET NOD32
Turning off real-time protection would make it possible to run the file you want without any problems and you would not be deactivating the antivirus completely.
- To do that opens the antivirus.
- On the left side click where it says settings.
- And the options that appear in the middle part click where it says “Computer Protection“.
It is important that you have it deactivated for the shortest possible time to reduce the risk of exposing you to security problems.
