    yes, but you may wish to back this up with a stand alone scanner such as super anti spyware. or use spyware blaster.
    it's intregrated within the av engine so you cant turn it off.

    Hello!

    stratoc: No, you're mistaken.

    imaulik: Antivirus and antispyware is integrated in one module, but you can choose, which options you enable in ThreatSense engine.

    Go to Advanced Antivirus and antispyware portection setup -> ThreatSense engine parameter setup -> Options -> Adware/Spyware/Riskware


    Regards

    hello imaulik,
    what do you mean does it acually work?
    have you had some spyware get on to your machine?
    if so have you sent a sample to eset?

    I had the same concern with a possible conflict given that NOD32 has an anti-spyware feature. Yesterday I downloaded SpyZooka and it found my newly rebuilt pc already had a Malware infection by Win32 Drom, aliases Win 32.AutoRun.bk, TR/Autorun, BK, Mal/PWS-K or Wind32/Rodvir.gen

    It was successfully cleaned with no traces left behind either in the Registry. Unfortunately, NOD32 had not picked it up. :eek:

    Have you sent the samples to samples[at]eset.com? Are you 100% positive that neither of them was a false positive?

    Why would I send samples Marcos when the problem had already been taken care of? You make a valid point though about the reporting of false positives from antispyware app that want to force consumers to download their products and pay before they will clean it up. Nevertheless, I feel more secure with a second anti-spyware app.

    BTW, my decision to purchase ESET AV was based on the excellence of their AV app.: not their antispyware. ;)
