    I have a bug report concerning virus detection. Condider this cenario :
    I have a RAR archive containing a virus.
    Open it with WinRAR, select infected file and drag it to the desktop.
    NOD report the virus, but yet it becomes a hassel to deal with it.
    if you click 'delete', the same NOD virus warning come again, reclick delete, and an error window appear : impossible to delete file, abbort, retry ? again and again.
    In fact the file is not present anymore, but nod thinks it still here and eroneously report the file presence. You have to close the virus window, as if you decided to allow the virus presence.

    To correct this very annoying bug, it is very simple : just check the file presence before reporting a virus.

    Do I have a chance to see this bug fixed Marcos o_O

    Done !

    I forgot to mension : the problem is, I think, because WinRAR use a temp dir to perform the extraction, and delete itself the file. This deletion is not seen by NOD.
    Thanks for your quick response by the way !
