does an anti virus tool like est nod32 (for example) which uses real time scanning affect encoding in any way? also would it affect burning discs

if so would it be wise to disable the av protection only when doing such tasks

eset has one of the best optimized scanning engines of any antivirus program.. u can set av programs to disable filetypes or exclude directories if you find it affects performance.

if your not sure do an encode with AV on... and measure performance, then do same again with av off or folder excluded

i encode lots of xvid/mkv and use eset, i dont notice any measureable impact with default av settings

giving nod 3 a trial run atm - thinking of replacing avg when it runs out - i did as you said earlier and i couldnt see it affecting the encode, was about 40fps on a 720x480 mkv encode (first pass) if second pass is around 15fps then i will know its not affecting anything :)

would the same apply to windows defender ?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
