    Most likely no, but let us know it will work....
    If you have no licence for NOD32, test trial version.

    I used the trial version of NOD32 while running Tauscan and had no problems.

    is it true that NOD32 does not detect trojans, only viruses

    NOD does detect some trojans and reportedly is improving on that front, but that's not its strength. For trojan detection in an AV try Kaspersky or McAfee. But even some KAV and McAfee users have a dedicated AntiTrojan program.

    Typically the recommended AT's are TDS, BOClean and Trojan Hunter.

    As Sig said, Nod is improving on the Trojan front, see http://www.nod32.com/news/awards.htm 09/02/2003 NOD32 Antivirus was the first to receive Checkmark Antivirus Certification Levels 1, 2 and Trojan for Windows 2003.

    "The Checkmark certification of NOD32 for Windows 2003 to AV [Anti-Virus] Levels 1,2 and Trojan, is the hallmark of a company whose philosophy is to be a cutting-edge AV developer," commented Chris Thomas, Operations Director of West Coast Labs, in a statement announcing the results. “West Coast Labs’ certification process represents the true test of an antivirus product’s capability to detect viruses, worms, and Trojans. Eset is pleased to provide its growing client base even further proof of the top detection qualities of NOD32 Antivirus on the Windows 2003 platform,” commented Miroslav Trnka, Eset’s Chief Technology Officer.

    So here's hoping to a better future in Trojan detection rates :D

    Cheers :D
