At the top of the ESET NOD32 Antivirus screen, there is a standard menu which can be activated or disabled based on the option Use standard menu.
If the option Show tooltips is enabled, a short description of any option will be displayed if the cursor is placed over the option. The option Select active control element will cause the system to highlight any element which is currently under the active area of the mouse cursor.

The Effects section allows the user to modify graphical interface elements. The main option here is using animated controls, along with the speed of animation, which can be increased or decreased. Similarly, it is possible to enable the use of animated icons when performing various tasks. If you want the program to sound a warning if an important event takes place, use the option Use sound signals.
