    There is really no need to scan archives on access (unnecessary overhead). Everything will be detected when extracted or even executed directly from archive.

    IMON HTTP will also scan RAR archives when downloaded from internet.
    But as far as i know it doesn't checks 7z archives. Still their content will be verified upon extraction.

    If that happens then NOD really will be the best AV.

    well.... adding support for an archive type won't make it the best AV but I do agree with you concerning other features v.3.0 hope will contain ;)

    Most likely 7zip support will make it to NOD32 v3. There are several reasons, and I'll cite only the most common one: 7zip is fast becoming a popular archive type.
