    Why does Nod32 V4 or V3 indicate certain archive file as damaged when it's not? An example is Dream Fall Demo game downloaded from here. The game installed fine but Nod32 can not scan it because it said that the archive is damaged. The compression method by the way is using WinRar.

    Hello ducky, I've also noticed this and submitted a few files with this problem. It appears to be some error in the archive module so I'm assuming they will wrinkle it out with an automatic update sometime.

    This problem has occurred since Version 2 and now we have version 4 and they still haven't fixed it. Should I even trust Nod32 if it can't even examine an archive file?

    That's odd I've only experienced it since the recent module updates, it has nothing to do with version.
