Setting up Eset Nod32 with Optuma
This article will take you through the process of setting up Eset Nod32 to allow Optuma full access to the Internet. This should prevent any problems downloading End of Day data, or installing updates to Optuma.
Open your version of ESET NOD32 software.
Select Setup from the vertical menu in your window.
Select Computer which is listed under Setup.
Select Configure, which will bring up a new window titled Advanced Setup, this window within the ESET program allows you to customise your antivirus settings.
Select the Exclusions tab from the vertical list of options within the left-side bar. From here you can add directories to be excluded from any antivirus scans on your computer.
Next Select Add, this will bring up the window where you can navigate to the directories that need to be excluded from scans.
Select OK and the directory you have selected will be added to the exclusions list.
You will need to repeat the above process for the following Optuma folders:
Note: If you are an existing client and have used Market Analyst, you will use the ProgramData\Market Analyst file below. If you are a new client and haven’t used Market Analyst, then you will use the ProgramData\Optuma file below.
C:\ProgramData\Market Analyst\ C:\ProgramData\Optuma
Note: The first program files listed are for the 32-bit version of Optuma, the second files listed are for the 64-bit version of Optuma.
C:\Program Files\Market Analyst 8\
C:\Users\[Account Name]\AppData\Local\Market Analyst 8\
C:\Users\[Account Name]\AppData\Local\Optuma\My Documents\Market Analyst 8 \Documents\Optuma
Note: Some of the folders listed above can be hidden by Windows. For information on displaying these folders, please click here.
Once you have selected all of the directories you wish to exclude from antivirus scans click OK. You can then reopen Optuma and you will no longer receive any notifications from Eset Nod32.
