    Recently while using Kaspersky's antiviral toolkit pro 3.5 swiss ed. with on access monitor set to scan all files: packed and archives.. and warnings and code analyzer checked, i noticed that when opening certain web sites that it no longer alerts for the presence of a windows trojan downloader.

    From my encounters the swiss edition of antiviral toolkit pro 3.5 seems to be more "sensitive" in detecting for the presence of certain backdoors and trojan downloaders compared to the russian edition...although technically they're the same. Lately it hasn't been doing this.. has anyone encountered something similar this?

    Sorry I can't help with your question, but Kaspersky has a new board set up for users with support from the KAV staff and I would suggest you join up and ask there also.

    I joined and would like to see word of the board get spread around. Kaspersky has indicated they would like to improve their tech support and its image.

    what's the different between swiss version avp 3.5.1330 with the one obtain from russian site? Do these two versions same in capabilities in detecting virus? I was puzzling.

    There are no differences in detecting capabilities, however Swiss edition will run on XP (Swiss edition uses F-Secure's Legacy Drivers) and Russian will not. Thats for v3.5.

    Thanks for the suggestion regarding Kaspersky's on going support board. I've checked it out.

    Pertaining to Avp 3.5.133 se though it's iffy to say, perhaps the active content embedded in those web pages have been modified it's why Avp is not detecting the presence of a windows trojan downloader. The strange thing is that it used to.. then it doesn't anymore.

    And also from what i've noticed KAV's higher versions, 4x and onward, doesn't seem as responsive to the presence of backdoors and droppers embedded in web pages.. After a web page has been downloaded it doesn't alert for anything.. while with Avp 3.5. it'll throw up a flag if there's a presence of suspicious active content. It's interesting.
