The latest version (4.0.467.0) of NOD AV is great, imo.

I run in an administrator account so I haven't experienced the problem you are having. I would go to User Accounts and make your regular user account a member of the administrator group. If that doesn't solve the problem, then perhaps you need to take ownership of your entire drive. Here is an easy way to do that.

Otherwise and in addition, I would suggest exporting your custom NOD AV settings (if you have any) to a file (easy to do this from within the NOD AV main window, setup, export/import) and uninstall the app, reboot, reinstall, reboot and then import your saved NOD 32 settings to get the app set up to the way you had it. This should solve your problems with it.
