    For obvious reasons my earlier thread on Avira or Eset was closed.
    (No problem at all)

    As recommended, I have given both applications a try on two different PC's

    Had Avira scan two drives and it found (Default settings)
    Number of malware: 17
    Number of errors: 6

    From a backup - I copied those 'infected' files to my other PC with Eset Smart Security running and had it checked.
    Threatsense - all tagged.
    In depth Scan.

    Eset didnot find any infections or threats ... :(

    I agree this is no scientific/elaborate/detailed report, but still I think it is a bit peculiar though..

    Who cares
    Which files are being detected as malicious?

    Downloaded stuff... ;)

    It doesn't matter though: issue is that there is a big gap and
    scan results.

    KIS2009 did not report anything either, default settings.
    I removed KIS2009 as it cannot handle the Bestcrypt software
    that I use for agents (v.6 and v.7 of KIS: no problem).
    Now, for the first time since many many years I got BSOD's.
    Great - no KIS anymore. I was a Kaspersky fan,but as from the
    latest v.7 built it went down the hill.
    Problems in working together with Directory Opus (this seems to
    have been fixed though).



    Avira found a number of Trojans

    TR/Dropper.Gen Trojan
    TR/Agent.1098240 Trojan
    TR/Agent.1007261 Trojan
    TR/Agent.799037 Trojan
    TR/Agent.602624.D Trojan
    TR/Agent.146944.C Trojan
    TR/Agent.wjm.1 Trojan
    TR/Agent.3325963 Trojan
    TR/Agent.93184.3 Trojan
    TR/Agent.1897035 Trojan
    TR/AVKiller.BV.22 Trojan
    TR/Dropper.Gen Trojan
    TR/Drop.Pass.I.17.A Trojan
    TR/Drop.Agent.dar Trojan
    [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the WORM/Mytob.BI.185 worm
    [DETECTION] Contains a recognition pattern of the (harmful) BDS/Hupigeon.D back-door program
    TR/Agent.wjm.1 Trojan

    etc....

    As said: KIS2009 - nil, Eset Smart Secure- nil (whilst scanning the folder with those suspecious files).
    I don't know all this stuff, maybe they are relatively harmless.
    Did not check.

    Anyway...

    Maybe when you copied the backup, NOD32 real time deleted the threats ....

    Can you just click/open any of your infected files and just check if the malware works .... ( I am guessing it has been already neutralized by NOD32 )
    For example: Run the MyTob worm file and see if its copied to system directory, makes reg and windows host file changes.

    Hope I could help.

    Well, Eset said it scanned xxxx files and found nothing. '0' infections.
    Assume that if it would have found anything, Eset wud have reported
    it, else users might be looking for files that have been deleted by Eset
    without a warning?

    Folks,

    That line probably says it best, and begs the question "Then what is it?"

    The simple fact of the matter is that unless one is technically equipped to performed a detailed file disassembly and analysis or script review, or one is willing to allow these files to execute on a live system and observed the outcome (assuming that the files in fact are not corrupted or incomplete), these types of discussions range from meaningless to rather misleading.

    Thread closed.
